    A Lawrenceburg man is recovering after suffering a severe head injury last Thursday morning in a one-car wreck on Rice Road.
    Nick Crouch, 25, sustained head and shoulder injuries when the vehicle he was driving left the road and struck a tree around 6 a.m. near his home on Rice Road.

  • Scores move district into top 25 in state

    Newly released state test results reported significant improvements for the district — moving Anderson County into the top 25 percent of districts across the state for its overall score — while highlighting work that still needs to be done on science, social studies and the ACT.
    Although the goal this year was to make the top 20 percent, administrators say they’re pleased with the 2012 test score results released by the Kentucky Department of Education last Friday.

  • Be afraid. Be very, very afraid

    Freddy Krueger, Jason Voorhees, Leatherface, Michael Myers and a incredibly scary looking clown named Captain Spaulding are spending October in Lawrenceburg and are bent on scaring the be-jeepers out of as many people as possible.
    Jason and his other ghoulish Hollywood pals won’t be wandering the streets of Lawrenceburg killing teenagers who wander off the beaten path, or in Freddy’s case fall asleep, but they will be hanging out at Eagle Lake throughout October to help raise money for Shop With a Cop.

  • GOLF: Bearcats earn state berth with sudden death win

    CAMPBELLSVILLE – It probably would not be a good idea to refer to golf as an “individual sport” around Anderson County.

    At least not any time soon, it wouldn't. For the Anderson County boys' team, earning a berth in the Kentucky high school state tournament was as much a result of teamwork as springing the halfback on third-and-long or finding a way to beat the full-court press.

  • SOCCER: Close is not enough for Lady Bearcats

    Anderson County was just a little late in getting to the game Saturday afternoon.

    South Oldham scored twice in the first seven minutes, then kept the Lady Bearcats at bay the rest of the way for a 2-1 victory in girls' soccer action.

    “We started off really slow,” Anderson coach Jason Earnest lamented. “We have had that happen quite a bit this year, for some reason. We weren't ready to play at the start of the game.

  • SOCCER: Simmons' hat trick leads Anderson past Shelby

     It's commonly called a “hat trick.”

    And when David Simmons went to work against Shelby County last Tuesday, there is little doubt his hat was black.

    He was the bad guy to Shelby. He was the executioner.

    Simmons scored three times over a seven-minute span to power Anderson County to a 5-2 win over its 30th District rival.
