Today's Opinions

  • We’re doing just fine, thank you

    Column as I see ’em …

    Being that those reading this newspaper are the ones paying the bills around here, I figured the onset of National Newspaper Week (Oct. 4-10) is the perfect time to give you a state of your newspaper address of sorts.

    Unlike politicians who spin a lot of misery into fool’s gold, I’ll simply stick to the facts and get to it.

  • Adopted pet becomes member of family

    By Jane Sinnett

    Guest Columnist

    It has almost been a year and I think of how our lives have changed since Kena came into our lives.

    I still remember the day we beat a path to the Anderson Humane Society that Saturday afternoon. Nothing like waiting to the last minute, huh?

  • Timely information as General Election nears

    By Jason Denny

    Anderson County Clerk

    As we near the Nov. 3 General Election, I thought it would be a good time to remind everyone of important dates and times.

    We have had several inquiries regarding registering to vote, making a party change and other election related questions.

    Currently: Mail-in ballots are being sent out daily. Call our office to request an application.

    Oct. 3: Inspection of voting equipment at 8:30 a.m. at the clerk’s office.

  • Don’t let loved ones fall victim to fraud

    Anyone with money can be a victim of fraud. Children are not exempt from fraud and neither are senior adults.  Everyone in between can also be subject to fraudulent financial transactions and identity theft.

    Sometimes family members are the culprits.

    Look for these signs. If you have power of attorney for someone, you should be especially vigilant about these concerns.

    You or your loved one thinks money or property is missing.

  • Hoping that it’s a long, warm fall

    Sunrise is a little later. Sunset comes a little earlier. The location of the sun is changing to that blinding windshield angle. It’s official. Fall has arrived. I think I can hear some cheers going up.

    Fall is Mother Nature’s way of letting us down easy. The emerald green is fading away as fast as the leaves are falling. Morning temps have reached jacket weather. Long sleeves, short sleeves and back again to long in one day. It’s like being backstage at a Monty Python play.

  • Sheriff’s office earns kudos

    To the editor:

    I would like to send congratulations to Sheriff Troy Young and his deputies for receiving their accreditation.

    I know how hard they worked to achieve this high standard of the policies and procedures practiced by the Anderson County Sheriff’s Office.

    The citizens, community and county should be proud of this goal, which is not easily handed out to law enforcement agencies.

    Kentucky sheriffs must rise to a higher standard for recognition to be awarded the accreditation certificate.  

  • Lack of respect coming from the top

    This column puts me at risk of fulfilling my 15-year-old’s belief that I’m just a crotchety, middle-aged guy who doesn’t understand today’s youth.

    Too bad.

    Over the past several months I’ve produced a rash of news articles about young people shooting off their filthy mouths at police officers, judges and court officials, the latest on A1 of this week’s paper.

  • It’s not too late to bring some green into your home

    Welcome to Kentucky’s roller coaster weather.

    Days upon days of almost 100-degree weather, with no rain, followed by highs of barely 70 and rain storms.

    Yep, it’s September.

    The birds are feeding off the flower seed heads faster than bread and milk sales when the weatherman says snow.

    I’d copy them. I’ve already seen flocks of geese heading south.
