  • COLUMN: Incoming freshman class can exceed last year's

    I’m no UK basketball historian.

    I’ll put that out there in the very first line of this column because it needs to be noted.

    I am, however, a sports geek who believes he can put things in perspective fairly well while not carrying a bias in one way or another.

  • COLUMN: The lowdown on cornfield beans, sweet potatoes

    One of the things I love best about gardening is hearing people’s stories.

    The “I remember when” stories are the best and I always learn something. It’s usually grandma stories that focus on the end product like a big ol’ pot of beans and grandpa stories that focus on the how to like putting boards down to germinate the seeds.

  • Letters to the editor - 6.30

    Missed chance to protect dogs

    To the editor:

    As a man involved in promoting the protection of dogs in my own community and elsewhere, I have followed with interest the controversy surrounding the defeated proposal in Anderson County Fiscal Court which, if enacted, would have improved the quality of life for dogs in your locality.

    I agree with Stan Petry’s letter in the June 16 edition that the ordinance would “thrust Anderson County into a leadership position as a forward-thinking, humane community.”
