  • Lack of Burgoo Festival promotion sparks questions about leadership

    To the editor:

    When will folks who run our government, social organizations, etc., wake up and realize there is something outside of Anderson County?

    Last [week] while watching the weather on LEX18, I saw a short heads up on the West Liberty Sorghum Festival, but nothing about the Burgoo Festival, practically next door.

    I also saw nothing on Kentucky Living magazine’s calendar of events.

    Column as I see ’em …

    I can hear them now, the handful people who actually supported a new health department building a few years ago, wising off about how history has proved them correct and me and thousands like me wrong about how unnecessary that building was.

    For those who missed the story on A1, the health department is opening a family care clinic next month that will solve the dilemma of where Medicaid patients can receive care, as well as being open to the privately insured.

  • Local business pivotal to building tourism

    Well, it seems the Anderson County Tourism Commission is committed to rising from the ashes of the previous tourism commission. That’s good. It will never get anywhere whining and bellyaching about the position it’s in now. Just move full steam ahead.

    There seems to be a handful of people on the commission who really want to make this work. Strides were made to elect leadership in the commission with Pam Brough, president of the chamber of commerce, nominated as the tourism commission chairperson.

  • Fall is a great time to fertilize woody plants

    So often we hear that fall or winter is a particularly good time to do certain things in the landscape. This is usually due to the fact that plants have entered into winter dormancy.

  • Use leaves to fertilize your garden

    Well, it’s here. I’m truly surprised that there weren’t parties all over the county last night. Why? There’s a bunch of you that love fall. You love the colors and the temperatures. It’s probably my second favorite season, only because it’s typically warmer than spring.

  • Leaving your lights on is more costly than you think

    It’s a myth that turning off the lights isn’t necessary. The truth is that it depends on what type of lighting you have and how long the light will be off before you need it again.

    This column may bring satisfaction to some who read it because they were right, and irritation to those who were having the all too familiar disagreement about the subject.
