  • A broccoli twist on traditional Kentucky country ham recipe

    Everyone at the Anderson County Senior Center enjoyed Kentucky country ham and broccoli grits when I served it there last week. They scraped the pan clean.
    Country ham is a Kentucky tradition. Only six states produce country hams – Kentucky, North Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, Georgia and Missouri.

  • Skip tilling when planting watermelons

    My potatoes and lettuce are growing! I haven’t really put anything else out. I should have put my broccoli and cauliflower out, but then it rained before I could.  Spring rains will complicate our gardening life, but we can’t do it without them.  We just have to be flexible with our schedule.

  • Believers in creation against teaching evolution

    To the editor:
    We read of interest in last week’s Anderson News the article about teaching evolution in our school system.
    God created everything!
    We believe in the creation as recorded in the Bible. We are members of Christ’s church at Glensboro and we feel that God’s people have sat by idle far too long. We allowed God to be taken out of our schools, courts and homes and it is time for God’s people to stand up for what they believe in.

  • Promote child abuse awareness

    To the editor:

  • Public library operates well, deserves community support

    To the editor:
    I think our library, and the other libraries in Kentucky, do an outstanding job.
    Joining with other libraries in the area, we have access to most any information we may need. And, the price is very low.
    Perhaps you disagree with the method of taxation, with the amount, and certainly with retention of reserves. But the library does operate well, serves a need in the community and deserves our support. I hope you visit the library often to observe the operation and the number of patrons served.

  • Splash park location just downright ridiculous

    Column as I see ’em …
    Just when I start to think the city council is ready to bury the hatchet with county government, it steps up and reaffirms just how wide the chasm between the two really is.
    The city’s decision to move forward with a splash park is the latest indicator of how unwilling it is to join forces with county government for the benefit of this community.

  • Prepare your trees for new breed of fruit-killing fly this spring

    I love the smell of fresh cut grass. To me, it carries the scent of watermelon, which always sends my brain to warm summer days and plenty of sunshine. Smell is the strongest memory trigger we have and that red fruit transforms me to childhood days of running through sprinklers and seed spitting contests. Summer isn’t here yet, but it is coming.
    Two of my most favorite holidays are coming, too. Earth Day will be here on the 22nd and Arbor Day is close behind on the 26th. This year, I’ve gotten a head start on my festivities.

  • Return to Haiti, the 12th edition

    Stepping off the plane in Haiti, David Montgomery first smelled the trash.
    “I’d been through some poor countries before, but when I hit Haiti, just the smell, the trash was everywhere, just like a tour of the landfill out here,” Montgomery said.
    The Anderson County magistrate’s memories of all he’s done, seen and heard on the Caribbean island run together.
    After 12 trips to Haiti in 14 years, it can be difficult to keep his timeline straight.
