  • Guitar students will play at KASGO and concert

    Although he admits to a little white lie 15 years ago, Henry County Middle and High School band director and music teacher Chip Anderson doesn’t regret telling it.

    “A former principal, Mr. Weid, met with me and said he’d like me to teach more classes at the high school because at the time I only taught one class,” Anderson said. “I suggested guitar class. Mr. Weid asked me if I played guitar, and I lied through my teeth and said, ‘Yeah, sure I play guitar…kind of.’”

  • Pulitzer-Prize winner from 100 years ago relevant today

     Although these charges could appear in today’s headlines, a Kentucky newspaper editor wrote about them a century ago.
