  • Know the rules before purchasing a vehicle

    Planning to buying a vehicle soon? If so, please be careful. We have seen an increase in problems that buyers are experiencing.
    Here are a few things that you need to watch for when buying a vehicle.
    Buying from an individual
    Is the person selling the vehicle the same person listed as the owner on the title? Ask for ID. Is the title the current one? Our office can verify this. Don’t accept the vehicle if not.

  • Put kids on path to school success

    The road to school success starts early. Having good health, loving relationships, encouragement and guidance from parents, and opportunities to learn all set the stage for success in school. Even if last year wasn’t a great year, you can set the stage to make this year be the one that your child really moves ahead in school. So whether your child is 5 or 10 or older, you can still help them be a success this year.

  • A father’s conversation about race

    I recently had a very serious talk with my 12-year-old daughter.

    We were driving to Louisville on US 60, west of Simpsonville, when I pulled into what is now known as the Whitney Young Job Corps Center.

    Fifty years ago, however, it was simply known as Lincoln Institute.

    We didn’t get out of the car, just drove around the campus while I told her how Lincoln Institute existed as a school for African-American children because most communities would not allow them to attend the local schools.

  • Former school district bus driver Brothers made into ‘scapegoat’

    To the editor:
    Timmy Brothers was a good bus driver and an easy person to get along with on an adult and student level over his 20 years.
    He drove my children from 1992 to 1996 until we moved. I feel as though Timmy was targeted unfairly for a lesser rule broken and picked out among many bus drivers who merely got a tap on the hand for leaving children on the bus at the bus garage, children driven around for up to an hour after not being let off where they were suppose to be while parents or grandparents were frantic as to their whereabouts.

  • Lawrenceburg mom’s going back to school, too

    I can tell you exactly what high school senior Emily Gritton will be eating tonight: a steak dinner with potatoes and a “Malone’s restaurant style” salad.
    Emily’s mother, Crystal Gritton, said Monday that she makes her two daughters, Emily and Whitney, their favorite foods for dinner to celebrate the first day of school.
    Emily will be in the kitchen do the same for her mom on Aug. 29, the first day of classes for Crystal at the University of Kentucky.

  • Facts hard to find on pipeline issue

    Column as I see ’em …
    In retrospect, it’s not at all difficult to see why a representative of the company proposing the Bluegrass Pipeline opted out of attending last Tuesday’s special called meeting of the Anderson County Fiscal Court.
    One person at that meeting, for one brief moment, spoke out of lockstep with the crowd and was immediately and thoroughly drowned out in opposition — even after he said he isn’t in favor of the pipeline.

  • Be calm and try new recipe for zucchini

    I love to take in the world around me. I mostly use my eyes and nose to relish the living things that surround us.
    I observe changes, like the later sunrise and the earlier sunset or the smell of fresh cut grass. As I drove home the other day, I noticed people along the way. People who were walking and talking or texting on their cell phone. People were driving and on their cell phone.

  • Better ways to combat diabetes

    Whether you have been recently diagnosed or have had diabetes for a long time, the eight-week class on Taking Ownership of Your Diabetes will help you learn about living with and managing diabetes.  Treatment of diabetes has changed over the past four decades.  
    It was once common to severely restrict sugar and almost anything that was tasty was off the eating plan for someone with diabetes.
