  • She keeps bad boys jailed, state lets ’em go

    When the keyboard is ripped away from my mouthy fingers and I’m sent home for good, I now know how I intend to spend at least a portion of my so-called golden years.

  • Water main breaks raise infrastructure questions

    Water main breaks. They’re becoming an all too common in the city. There was another one in the Alton area off Highway 151 on Sunday. Since October, we’ve had at least one water main break every month.

  • EPA, tree huggers to blame for skyrocking electricty rates

    To the editor:

    The Anderson News recently printed the 2015 proposed increases for Kentucky Utility customers. If you still have access to the KU notifications as printed in The Anderson News, I would advise you to peruse those proposed rate increases.

    I read those rates line by line, calculated the results and it immediately raised a red flag which prompted me to call Kentucky Utilities in Louisville to speak to a representative. She was very nice but I did all of the talking and she merely confirmed my suspicions.

  • A few holiday tips for family caregivers

    The holiday season can be full of challenges for family caregivers and include some moments of joy. Establishing a realistic approach will help you enjoy more and stress less.

    Family members may plan a big celebration with the idea that this may be the last holiday that they will share together. Instead think about quality time together, not the length of time.
