  • Letter to the Editor

    To the editor:

    I would like to publicly thank and commend Det. Jeremy Cornish of the Lawrenceburg Police Department.

    Very recently I was given cause to rely upon this law enforcement agency to recover property stolen from me. Had it not been for their diligence, I would have never seen my items again nor would justice have prevailed.

    I cannot begin to express the gratitude I have toward the Lawrenceburg Police Department and Det. Cornish.

  • Fixing problems, a pothole at a time

    Column as I see ’em …

    Sometimes getting a problem fixed is knowing the right person to call.

    I spent a couple of hours last week interviewing a fellow named Ashley Courchene, one of the residents who lives on Berdine Way, a dead end street across the highway from Honeysuckle Drive.

    Ashley, who motors around the community in a power scooter, called to let me know about a big pothole in the road and share his frustration in getting someone, anyone in county government to fix it.

  • Meeting a hero, close to home

     

    It used to be Superman,

    Johnny Bench and then George Jones.

    But lately I’ve been finding all my heroes

    Closer to home.

    —The Oak Ridge Boys

    I never met Mason Rucker until I was out of college, but he quickly became one of my heroes.

    If you ever got to know him, he’d be one of yours too.

  • Learn how to plant garden, grow flowers on the cheap

    Those rascally rabbits just ate 100 of my tomato plants. At least I hadn’t planted them yet.

    Those were my later tomatoes, but still. It was easy pickins, and my fault, because they were in a float tray, in a tub, on the ground. Oh well, the trials and tribulations of a farmer.

    There have been several new gardening tips come my way lately and I thought I’d share with you this week. Gardening does have its expenses, so any time I can find a way to save, I’m on it.

    Let’s start with flowers.

    To the editor:

    We love Lawrenceburg!

    We just hosted the 13th Annual Model T Speedster Tour there this past week and we have been blown away. Everybody that we worked with went out of their way to help us.

    Troy Young did a great job taking pictures of our speedsters at the Healing Field. What a beautiful setting!

    Thank you to the Anderson Board of Education for its help with parking.

  • Kid gloves for robbery suspects?

    Column as I see ’em …

    Did you have a loved one who was not allowed to “walk” during the recent high school graduation ceremony due to unpaid student fees, athlete fees or some other technicality?

    If so, I strongly advise you to go read Cheryl’s gardening column because what you’re about to read here is really going to bake your biscuits.

  • Not too late to plant a fall garden

    Can you believe June is almost over? If only winter would go by so fast.

    On the bright side, those of you who’ve been too busy to get that garden planted still have time. There are a lot of vegetables that can be planted right up to fall. So, let’s start with what you can plant in June.
