  • Humane Society’s annual rummage sale is Saturday

    Sad, but true. I had another just last week, as I was researching what to write about a Humane Society article. Dogs can’t see! Well, not like I thought they could.

  • Thankful, and then some

    Tammy Neurohr’s son Justin wanted to know where Family Court Judge John David Myles’ pants were.
    Tammy and her four children skipped school last Friday morning at the Anderson County courthouse so that Allison, and her fraternal twin siblings Sydney and Rolan Ebersole could officially become adopted as Neurohrs.

  • Football feast in Final Four showdown

    You can forgive members of the Anderson County football team if they eat like they are on a bit of a diet on the biggest eating day of the year.

  • Regional reign! Bearcats defeat Franklin for title

    It was one of those nights where you couldn't just dig in.

    “Everybody was just sliding around out there,” said Anderson County lineman and team captain Landon Searcy.

    Holding on? Good luck on doing that on a football field that went from horrible to near-quagmire status as Anderson County and Franklin County slogged it out for a regional championship.
