Today's Opinions

  • Wake up and start recycling

    To the editor:
    If you had to bury your trash and garbage in your own back yard, would you recycle?
    I often ask this question, especially to those I know do not recycle. The answer I usually get is, “Of course.”  
    I continue my questioning with, “Well, then, why do you not recycle now?” The answers are varied: I do  
    not want to sort all that stuff. I do not a have a blue recycle bin. It’s too much trouble. The list gets longer. None of these reasons can be substantiated.

  • Recipe good use of blackberries, peaches

    The peak season for blackberries in Kentucky is June and July. Look for firm, dry berries whether you are picking or purchasing.
    Avoid containers that are stained because that may indicate crushed or overripe berries.
    Blackberries should be shiny and black. Avoid berries that have a dull appearance or have a reddish color. Moisture will increase spoilage. Don’t wash berries until you are ready to use them.

  • Community thanked for support

    To the editor:
    The inaugural Marie Crawford Garmon Scholarship Golf Scramble was held June 15 at Wild Turkey Trace Golf Course.
    The scramble committee would like to extend its sincere thanks to all the sponsors, participants and volunteers who make this event such a tremendous success.
    Because of the generosity of our community the event was able to raise over $10,000 that will be awarded in scholarships honoring Marie Garmon.  This scholarship will be given to Anderson County students beginning in May 2014.

  • Garmon fundraiser will benefit scholarship fund

    To the editor:
    The Anderson County Scholarship Fund is pleased to accept the generous gifts from all who participated in, contributed to or volunteered to assist the Marie Crawford Garmon Scholarship Golf Scramble held last month at Wild Turkey Trace Golf Course.
    To date, the Anderson County Scholarship Fund has received $10,759 in contributions in memory of Ms. Garmon, which is very much appreciated.

  • Media guilty of misusing power

    To the editor:

  • What middle schoolers can expect 21 days from now

    Reader discretion for this column is advised.
    If you are an Anderson County student (some Anderson County teachers may find they feel the same), there is incredibly disturbing information in the following sentence.  
    There are only 21 days between today and the first day of school.
    I know this because I recently dreamed of a tornado (one of my tried and true “school is coming” nightmares) descending upon Lawrenceburg and swallowing up the Bypass.  

  • Law enforcement done the right way

    Column as I see ’em …
    Rather than discuss something negative this week, how about something positive?
    Positive if you share my opinion, that is.
    I have never been more proud to call Anderson County home than I was last Tuesday morning.
    After catching wind that a man dressed in black was walking north on the Bypass while carrying a military-styled rifle (they’re not assault rifles unless used in an assault), I hustled to the location to see what was going on.

  • Effective ways to battle beetles, other plant yuk

    There are lots of words to describe the weather we’ve been having. Saying you can wear the air or cut the air with a knife are just two. When the humidity got this high in the olden days, my Grandma would say it is “close” out.
