  • Vegetable gardens could offset high grocery bill

    There’s just something wrong about driving through snow while on spring break. On the bright side, I did get to spend some quality time up north in Indiana. Seeing everyone’s smiling faces always makes the trip worthwhile. I even got to bring home some of Ma’s brownies.

  • Court ruling a major victory for landowners

    The State Journal

    In his ruling Tuesday on the Bluegrass Pipeline, Franklin Circuit Judge Phillip Shepherd said much the same as several legislators pushing for a bill addressing the issue of eminent domain.

    Shepherd’s decision saying the company does not have the power of eminent domain doesn’t preclude the construction of a pipeline through Kentucky; it only stops the real or threatened seizure of property from unwilling landowners.

  • Returning to the scene of the crime

    Lawrenceburg Police Detective Jeremy Cornish got the criminal version of a Tic Tac double-whack pack when he interviewed suspected thief Johnathan Michael Powell on March 22.

    Powell, 21, admitted to burglarizing the local Taco Bell in January while being questioned about an attempted robbery of Taco Bell employees earlier that day.

  • Magistrates or mathematicians?

    Reviewing bids for Anderson County Parks & Recreation softball shirts and caps took up nearly all of Anderson County Fiscal Court’s regular monthly meeting Tuesday.

    Because bids were not formatted the same, magistrates had to calculate potential total costs for each of the four bids. At one point, Judge-Executive John Wayne Conway had to call a Parks & Recreation official on his mobile phone to get an estimate for the various sizes that might be needed, because the shirts were bid at youth and adult sizes and in various colors.

  • Glass is named new ACHS principal

    Chris Glass is no stranger to the Anderson County school system. Soon, he’ll likely be no stranger to most people in Anderson County.

    Glass was tabbed to be the next principal of Anderson County High School by the ACHS Site-Based Decision Making Council Friday.

    Glass is a 1993 ACHS graduate and he’s served as a teacher and administrator in the school system for nearly 13 years, most recently as associate principal at ACHS. He’s been serving as interim principal throughout the 2013-14 school year.

  • Anderson police arrest suspected ATM bandits

    Keen observation and teamwork helped Lawrenceburg police nab two suspects and a plethora of incriminating evidence during an investigation of a burglary at the local Redi Mart. Similarities of the burglary to several others across Kentucky, Indiana and Tennessee now lead police to believe that they might have caught bigger fish than they first thought.

    FRANKFORT, Ky. — Developers of the controversial Bluegrass Pipeline do not have the legal authority to condemn land to pipe natural gas liquids across Kentucky, a judge ruled Tuesday.

    In an 18-page order, Circuit Judge Phillip Shepherd granted a summary judgment in favor of the group Kentuckians United to Restrain Eminent Domain, or KURE, which has fought the pipeline project.

  • Passed ball allows Bearcats to salvage win in rain-soaked week

    The final tally of last week's high school baseball action was Weather 3, Anderson County 1.

    The Bearcats saw games at Boyle County, Oldham County and South Oldham all canceled because of rain, cold weather or a combination of the two.

    However, the one time the Bearcats took the field, they scored an 8-7 win on the home field over Henry County in eight innings to even their record at 2-2 on the year.

  • COLUMN: Team Tweak

    If you say you foresaw what we have witnessed unfolding on the basketball court the last two weeks, you probably should give serious consideration to a career change into the world of fortune telling.

    Or you are lying.

    Come on now, did you REALLY see Kentucky in the Final Four after the 72-67 debacle at South Carolina back on March 1.

    Actually, I did not see that one as I was celebrating my wife's birthday dinner that night and had cranked up the DVR. I still haven't watched it.
