  • Holding public records hostage

    While employed as an instructor at the University of Kentucky’s School of Journalism, former hostage Terry Anderson recounted his five-year battle with federal agencies to obtain copies of public records under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) relating to the government’s efforts to secure his release from Hezbollah kidnappers during his nearly seven-year captivity.

  • Facts, management options for dogwood anthracnose

    Anthracnose of dogwood is a common problem in Kentucky.

    Symptoms on landscape and forest dogwoods often first appear during wet periods in late spring. If left unmanaged, the pathogen spreads, eventually resulting in plant death.

    Selection of resistant varieties and maintenance of tree health are critical for disease prevention.

  • Are you remaining silent as evil and sin run rampant?

    I saw an interview this week with a man who owns an orchard and family farm near Lansing, Michigan.

  • Free Enes Kanter, protect free speech

    When the NCAA ruled Enes Kanter ineligible to play basketball for the University of Kentucky, people tweeted #FreeEnes.

    Now that the Turkish government has issued an arrest warrant for Kanter after he criticized President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the hashtag has re-emerged.

    Kanter’s fight for free speech brings an international issue to the Bluegrass. Kanter has openly criticized the Erdogan government, and in reward it revoked his passport so he could not travel.

  • Tips on controlling flies

    Warmer weather brings more pest problems. Horn flies and face flies are key pests of Kentucky cattle. Both species breed in fresh manure piles, but they present different threats and management problems. Fortunately, you have a variety of fly control options.

  • Happy to celebrate 225th anniversary

    On June 1, the Commonwealth of Kentucky celebrated the 225th anniversary of its admittance as a state into the Union. Originally a part of Virginia known as “the Kentucky County,” it became the 15th state of this nation in 1792. So today, I want to celebrate my home state of Kentucky, a place the Native American Wyandot nation called the “land of tomorrow.” Once considered the far western frontier, Kentucky has developed into a state with diverse industries, a strong heritage, and international prominence.

  • Editorial cartoon, Carter’s column, were ‘deeply offensive’

    To the editor:

    I feel compelled to comment on the cartoon by Terry Wise and comments made by guest columnist Teri Carter in the most recent edition of The Anderson News.

    In case you missed the cartoon, it featured a toe tag of dead KY Republican governor’s lacking common sense.

    Guest columnist Teri Carter continues to criticize as well as bash our President Trump.

    Thank God for freedom of speech and expression of such for all Americans.

  • Trump only delivering photo ops

    Jobs, jobs, jobs.

    This is the rallying cry from followers of the president, and rightly so. Enough about Russia. Enough about the election. Enough about leaks and palace intrigue at the White House and Mar a Lago and golf. Enough.

    We need jobs. We need to find a way to keep companies in the United States. We need good jobs that offer stability and pay a living wage.

    The president made us a promise. Let’s give him a chance.
