Today's Opinions

  • Best bet for getting rid of bed bugs is to hire a professional

    An office visitor inquired about how to get rid of bed bugs in an apartment.
    The best answer is to hire a professional pest control company.
    They have access to insecticides that are not available to a homeowner. Professional used insecticides such as Temprid, Transport and Phantom, all registered trademark insecticides, tend to be more effective than bed bug sprays sold by retailers.

  • Put marijuana to work in Kentucky

    To the editor:
    There are two bills coming up in January for our representatives to vote on and you need to let them know where you stand.   
    The first, is sponsored by state Sen. Clark, is to legalize medical marijuana. This herb can help cancer and glaucoma patients and so many more that, with research, the possibilities are unknown.

  • Christ belongs in public square, everywhere else

    To the editor:
    Editor’s note: The following is in response to a letter in last week’s paper by Maxye Henry titled “Keep Christ out of the public square.”
    Ms. Henry, did you ever think that just maybe this is the reason that our country is in the shape it is in?
    We have taken God out of everything, including the schools, courthouses and even the Oval Office.

  • King is example of Dems’ war on women

    To the editor:
    Any one who state Rep. Kim King comes in contact with knows she is a real jewel; a fine Christian, freedom-loving American.
    Kim in all things puts "we the people" first.
    Kim is known, not just here but across this nation, as a great freedom fighter, and today more then ever she is greatly needed.
    Democrats claim there is a war on women. They should know because here in Anderson County it’s being waged against Kim King.

  • Putting a face to the economy

    The economy.
    If you listen closely to the way people talk about the economy, you expect Frankenstein’s monster pieced together from the most terrifying of horror film creatures.
    Like the nameless beast hiding underneath the bed, the economy creates havoc without anyone physically seeing or touching it.
    “The economy” induces enough stress and fear, it seems, to launch a thousand nightmares.
    It starves. It steals. It turns decent people desperate.

  • Will attorney general’s office keep talking tough?

    Column as I see ’em …
    Don’t be surprised this week if a former social services employee who pleaded guilty to nine felony counts of falsifying her investigations is, in essence, released from prison.
    Yep, the five year sentence Margaret “Geri” Murphy received just a month ago could be set aside when she asks for, and odds are will receive, shock probation.

  • September is time to prepare house plants

    Here it is almost the end of August.
    Summer has flown by on super sonic wings. The jiggler on the canner has been singing in the kitchen every weekend and I still have bushels to go before I'm done. The pantry is looking better every day. We've only had one fog this month, so far, so I'm hopeful that it will be an easy winter.

  • Dedicating minutes a day makes for happier marriage

    How can you have a happier marriage? Even the best of relationships probably have room to grow a bit more.
    I recently had an opportunity to speak at a local women’s conference about this subject. The idea wasn’t original to me but it certainly makes sense.
    No matter how committed you are to the relationship, it can get stale if you don’t put some effort into making the relationship happy.
