Today's Opinions

  • Garden provides natural help for ragweed sniffles

    We are such creatures of habit. We know what we like and this time of year: chili.
    Chili with meat or beans, or both. Chili with spaghetti or macaroni, or both. Chili with cheese or onions, or both. When it gets chilly outside, we make chili inside. Casseroles or Crock-Pot soups come next.

  • Cops & Rodders a great event

    To the editor:
    The annual Cops & Rodders 2 2013 Car Show to benefit the Kentucky Sheriffs’ Boys & Girls Ranch and the Anderson D.A.R.E. program’s Shop With a Cop with Sheriff Troy Young hosting the event was a huge success.
    We send our sincere thanks to Sheriff Young, the Anderson County Sheriff’s Office and all those supporting this event and helping out. Your support and help of this event ensures we continue to reach Kentucky’s youth in a positive manner.

  • Hope remains for local atheist

    To the editor:
    This is in response to the guest column written by Jerry Milburn that appeared two weeks ago.
    Sir, with all due respect, you do err. You see, God had no intentions to dismiss his holy name from the nation, public or any other document set forth by those who refused to trust in him. The Bible didn’t get this far for nothing. Matthew10:33: “But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.”

  • Benefit for Nick Crouch successful

  • Practice what you preach, Milburn

    To the editor:
    I read Mr. Jerry Millburn’s guest column (Hypocrites on school board know they’re wrong) in the paper a few weeks ago and would like to share some observations.
    Mr. Milburn made a reference to prayer being in the closet. Sure, the Bible makes that statement in Matthew 6:6. The only problem is that refers to personal prayer and not group.

  • Chewing on news leftovers

    A little known fact about me — I am the queen of leftovers.
    Endless possibilities leave me paralyzed, gnawing on a block of cheddar cheese because I’m too overwhelmed by choice to cook a proper meal for myself.
    Give me an almost bare pantry, and I can whip up something pretty delicious.
    OK, that adjective should probably be “edible,” not delicious.
    Consider this week’s column an exercise in leftovers: the last week’s tidbits layered in an informational news sandwich.
    Great. Now I’m hungry.

  • Paid labor trumps free labor any day

    Column as I see ’em …
    Judge-Executive John Wayne Conway made a good decision and a questionable one during last Tuesday night’s meeting of the Anderson County Fiscal Court.
    Lest I be perceived as always focusing on the bad, let’s start with the good.
    Conway informed magistrates that he had recently rejected the Shelby County Detention Center’s offer of work release inmates, a wise choice once you think it all the way through.

  • Pluck, pluck, plucking on heaven’s door

    With three fingers clenched into a curved claw, I tried to pluck heaven out of Jane Bennett’s harp.
    No rich, strong and angelic voices sang from the chord’s strings as I had imagined. Moments earlier, I had glided my pointer finger up the strings in a glissando like a child clumsily drags a stick across the bars of a fence.
    My first harp lesson had lasted a total of five minutes, and I was already frustrated.
    And strangely, kind of relaxed at the same time.
