Today's Opinions

  • It’s never too early to start selecting seeds

    Happy New Year. I don’t know about you all, but I’m feeling all warm and fuzzy.
    It’s primarily because I got lots of warm stuff for Christmas, but other things, too. I received numerous pictures of family and friends along with letters and messages catching me up on their lives. What a great way to start 2012. Now, if only I can remember to write it.

  • Pierian Club says thanks

    To the editor:
    The Lawrenceburg Pierian Woman’s Club would like to thank our friends and neighbors for their generous support of our holiday fundraiser.
    We made and sold more than 500 dozen bourbon balls and buckeyes.
    The proceeds from our sales will enable us to continue our college scholarship program and contribute to Backpack Buddies and other local charities.
    Special thanks to Wild Turkey Bourbon’s Master Distiller Jimmy Russell and St. Lawrence Catholic Church.

  • K-9 deputy new weapon in war on drugs

    To the editor:
    As a deputy sheriff I am frequently asked about a solution to the drug problem in our beloved county. Wanting to assure that person that we indeed have a firm grip on the issue, I begin to explain that the keys to the drug problem are not held by one person or department, but are kept by a much larger network.
    I always say that it starts with the public. As citizens, we must commit to the war on drugs as being avid watchdogs and refuse to turn a blind eye to drug activity in our community.

  • Banning fake pot, bath salts isn’t answer

    To the editor:
    Does every level of government just need to create more laws year after year in order to “fix” what we deem is wrong with society?
    Do elected officials wake in the morning thinking we can solve our problems with more regulations, more government, or maybe even a historical district?
    Did you ever stop and think for a moment that we as individuals are free to make choices that can have positive and negative effects on our lives?

  • City wise to create travel policy

    “It’s the way we’ve always done it.”
    If I had a nickel for every time I’ve heard that response — well, I’d have a lot of nickels.
    I don’t want to make a mountain out of a seemingly insignificant city government oversight.  
    But frankly, I’m surprised city officials thought using the “honor system” in relation to reimbursing its employees was an effective and realistic tradition to uphold.

  • Will 2012 be better? Only time will tell

    Column as I see ’em …
    Agree or disagree with the order in which they appear, or if they should have been on the list at all, the stories that comprise this year’s top 10 certainly show that Anderson County had its share of ups and downs in 2011.

  • Dairy Cheer employees say thanks

    To the editor:
    We would like to thank the citizens of Lawrenceburg for their outpouring of support.
    Thirty people now have a little hope and restored faith during this time.
    We love this town and the way it comes together whenever one of its own is in need.
    Lawrenceburg has a special breed of people. We may love, fight and bicker with one another, but when something happens to someone in our town the message is clear: Don’t mess with Lawrenceburg.

  • Were gardening gadgets under your tree?

    Well, it’s here, the end of the year. There were moments when it seemed like it would never get here. Then time would speed up and we couldn’t believe it was December.
    Life is time. Some days it’s a slow stroll, others it’s a sprint. But it’s always a marathon filled with memories along the way.
