    When it comes to filling out a bracket, there are two types of people. First, there’s the people who maybe recognize three teams in the bracket, and finish making their picks in five minutes.

  • Rebuild enters year two for Anderson track

    After a last place finish in the regional meet last year, second year head coach for the Anderson County track team Richard Shearer believes his team can improve enough to avoid being the bottom team at regionals this year.

    One of the things that Shearer believes will help his team this season is the amount of returners he as to work with. While there are still athletes on the team that are new to track, a larger than usual amount of returners to the team has Shearer excited of how much they can improve.

  • Japanese students visit high school

     From Kirin’s ownership of Four Roses to YKK, Anderson County is tethered to Japan in more ways than one. Beyond business, however, rarely does Lawrenceburg’s cultural sphere intersect with the Land of the Rising Sun.
