Today's Opinions

  • Humane Society’s annual rummage sale is Saturday

    We’ve all had some life-changing event. My most memorable one was in high school when I went into the bank and said, “What do you mean I have no money, I still have checks left.”
    Sad, but true. I had another just last week, as I was researching what to write about a Humane Society article. Dogs can’t see! Well, not like I thought they could.

  • Avoid packing on additional holiday pounds

    The holiday season is full of wonderful tasty food that tends to add pounds to those who overindulge. The Weight Management for the Holidays program can help you avoid packing on the pounds as you enjoy the holidays with family, friends and coworkers.  

  • Adopt a senior pet in November

    To the editor:
    November is senior pet month. Why not think about giving an older dog or cat a home? There are many advantages to adopting a senior companion animal.

  • Obama’s blunder is destroying America

    To the editor:
    As Americans we toil daily to provide for ourselves and for our family … ah, the pursuit of happiness for many.
    Some of us may be less fortunate or challenged to work for a wage so we seek outreach from other entities.  

  • School district should live within its means

    We’re hoping that the Anderson County Board of Education already knew it had spent $660,000 more than it took in during the 2012-13 budget.
    We doubt it, though, and are fairly certain it took an auditor to let board members know.
    If the board knew it was spending so far beyond its income level, why didn’t that problem come up even once earlier this year when board members discussed the district’s budget?

  • To be heard by the men, she spoke through a man

    The Roman Catholic priest called, the sing-song lilt of his voice heard through the telephone:
    “So, what are we going to suggest today?” he asked her, the usual conversation necessary before the next committee meeting.
    Retired Disciples of Christ minister Pat Yates, sitting at her kitchen table last Friday afternoon, said her ideas on Christian education would only be heard if spoken through the mouth of her friend, a Roman Catholic priest also serving on a committee to develop programs for inner-city youth in Ohio.

  • Learn to stay warm when old man winter growls

    Yo-yo weather is here. This time of year, Kentucky’s temperatures can go up for hours or even days, teasing us, right before it slams back down to “Where’s my coat?” temps. We go from comfortable to cold, and back again, giving us four seasons in one day.
    I think it’s Mother Nature’s way of gently breaking us into winter. Kind of like the lights in a theater dimming, to let us know the show is about to begin. I just hope it’s not gearing up for a record breaking performance.

  • Gaines case a black eye for legal system

    Column as I see ’em …
    I’ll bet you’re curious about this photo, and I’ll get to that in a moment, but first let me say how disappointed I am that the fellow charged with drunk hunting and wanton endangerment has pleaded guilty instead of standing trial.
    David Gaines, a Lawrenceburg man who in my view was railroaded into this mess, pleaded out on three Class D felony counts and in essence now admits to shooting in the direction of other hunters earlier this year in a dove field.
