  • The Lawrenceburg man who nearly became president

    James Beauchamp “Champ” Clark was born near Lawrenceburg on March 7, 1850. As a boy he worked on farms in Anderson County. By the time he was 62 years old he had become the speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, was the ranking Democrat official in the nation, and the leading Democratic candidate for president going into the 1912 Democrat nominating convention.

    Column as I see ’em …

    I can’t help but marvel at the unbelievably good deal the group that sold the industrial park property to the EDA received — a deal that is certain to get even sweeter over time.

  • Keep pesticides safely stored this winter

    Generally, manufacturers recommend a two-year storage period for pesticides. However, storage times vary with active ingredient, formulation, type of container, and storage conditions.

    Get the most out of carry-over products by carefully reading the storage and disposal section of each label for pesticides that you store over the winter.

    Proper pesticide storage

    Proper pesticide storage keeps people safe and preserves your investment. Buy carefully to avoid having large volumes of products to store from one season to another.

    Venison adds variety to meals. When properly handled in the field and at home, it’s tasty and less expensive than other meats.

    It can be eaten fresh or preserved for use throughout the year. It can be frozen as steaks, roasts or sausage or preserved by canning or drying.

  • Hellard took me from a broken home, raised me as her own

    To the editor:

    I was about 7-years-old when Marie Hellard got custody of me. I pretty much lived with her most weekends before that. At 7-years-old, you don’t see or understand the reason you got separated from your parents. You don’t know that drugs and things of that nature are bad because you have been raised around it since you were born.

  • When misinformation leads to mistrust

    As Americans, we often rely on the expertise of others to make an informed decision. If you have cancer, you visit an oncologist to give you variety of options on how to treat the disease. If you car isn’t running properly, you take it to a mechanic. If you have chronic soreness and stiffness, people often visit a chiropractor. With the same logic, we trust the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to be experts in the spread of contagions and limiting the spread of contagious diseases such as Ebola.
