  • Letters to the editor - 11.18

    Medical expertise important for coroner

    To the editor:

    I was pleased to read in The Anderson News that Dr. Mark Tussey has announced his candidacy for Anderson County coroner.

    Coroner is a very important official of any community. It is the duty of the coroner to declare the cause of any death that is questionable occurring within the county. A scientific understanding of human anatomy and the numerous and varied complex causes of death are vital to fulfilling the function and responsibility of his office.

  • COLUMN: Band gives high school bragging rights

    Anderson County High School has made plenty of history and has a lot about which to brag.

    From academics to sports, the high school is great.

    This year we’ll add another to that list, and this time it’s the marching band making history.

    Our band made school history by placing eighth in the state semifinals in its class, its highest finish ever. It jumped eight spots from last year, which is a huge improvement.

  • COLUMN: Middle school redemption

    Bangs curled under and teased, wire-rimmed glasses, braces with colorful rubber bands — that was me in middle school.

    For whatever reason, I’ve been reminiscing about those years, 1997 and 1998 to be exact, a lot lately.

    Last Wednesday, I had the pleasure of speaking to Mrs. Lisa Winfrey’s classes at Anderson County Middle School. This is the fourth or fifth time I’ve talked to her students and it’s always a wonderful experience.
