Today's Opinions

  • Lay that donkey down and rest in God’s love

    A young boy and an old man were walking with a donkey when a group of people passed by.
    “Isn’t that ridiculous that no one’s riding that donkey,” one person said.
    So, the old man told the boy to ride the donkey.
    Another group of people passed by and someone said, “That’s terrible! Look at that young boy riding that donkey while the old man walks.”

  • Small life changes can add up to big bucks

    I always get up with the birds. Thankfully, they’ve been sleeping in lately.
    As summer comes to an end, our daylight wanes and plants and animals adapt. It’s the cycle of life and adapting is the key to survival. If I didn’t get to hibernate a little in the winter, I’d never survive. I’d be too pooped.
    Sadly, hibernation is months away and we still have lots to do before then. Motivation is still the ticket to get us through. All I have to do to get my motor running is remember my relatives.

  • Don’t talk the talk if you can’t walk the walk

    Patience is not my virtue.
    I’m guessing it’s not yours, either.
    Time is precious, or so our strict schedules and ringing smart phones tell us.
    A typical nightmare for me: a never-ending line at the airport terminal with nothing to read.
    Honestly, that scares me more than Norman Bates or Freddy Krueger.  
    Parking downtown, however, isn’t exactly the Nightmare on Main Street that I’ve heard about.

  • It’s all about the children, sort of

    What would it hurt for children schooled at home to play athletics in the public schools?
    There certainly are plenty of rules that forbid that from happening here in Kentucky, and legal decisions from the courts to back them up, so spare me the usual oatmeal responses, please.
    Instead, answer the question as posed and tell me what it would actually hurt?

  • Get motivated for fall, winter chores with images of a well-stocked pantry

    Can you believe it’s almost the end of summer? The stand is now closed and I’m spending Labor Day laboring in the kitchen.
    It’s the time I finish my canning, freezing and drying of the harvest, and it’s the picture of a beautifully stocked pantry that motivates me. Well, that and the knowledge that I know what I’ll be eating, where it came from and how it was grown.

  • County fire department deserves praise

    To the editor:
    I didn’t know how to get the word out, but I just wanted to give accolades to the Anderson County Fire Department.
    I was attempting to burn a moderate pile of combustibles on Bear Creek Road and thought I had everything under control. I came in to cool off. All of a sudden, the fire was out of control and had burned something less than quarter-acre.

  • Kudos to adult day care

    To the editor:
    The Anderson County community has many assets to be proud of, and one of these resources is the Anderson County Adult Day Care.
    I was introduced to ACADC by a long time friend, Opal Phillips. After my mother passed away, Daddy moved in with my family.
    However, I needed to keep my job and did not know what Daddy would do while I was at work. I did not feel comfortable leaving him by himself.
    So, remembering Opal’s enthusiasm about the programs at the Senior Citizen’s center, I went to investigate.

  • Conway should watch language, work with Hurley

    To the editor:
    Two recent articles in The Anderson News prompted me to take a look at what might be going on with our local health department. The first thing I did to understand this problem was to reread the article “Conway wants health  
    director fired.”
