Today's Opinions

  • Cemetery policy is much too strict

    To the editor:
    The rulers of the cemetery have spoken and I’m confident many hearts are troubled.
    Yes, I agree there are some gravesites that are overstated to say the least. Many, including that of my parents, are well maintained and conservative.
    It is hard for me to understand how the removal of these concrete floral urns honoring my parents will ease mowing. The urns are placed against the monument and should create no additional problems. The flowers are nurtured and watered several times weekly, all of which allows some moments of reflection.

  • Plenty of time left to get garden planted

    OK, enough with the rain already. Let’s expect the sun to come out. It will and it will warm up and dry up. Remember how it stayed warm long into fall? Well, keep that in mind. Our gardens will flourish. They just won’t be producing as early as we want.
    Big deal.
    Those of you down hearted because you haven’t even tilled yet need to just chill. It is not too late to get the garden going. We have plenty of time to grow our favorite veggies. It may be late August before we start canning, but we will can.

  • Polling places are changed

    As we enter the home stretch toward the May 17 Primary Election for state officials, I thought it to be important to talk about the final decisions for the polling locations.
    During April’s meeting of Anderson County Board of Elections, the board gave until May 9 at 10:30 a.m. (special called meeting) for Judge-Executive John Wayne Conway to get approval from fiscal court to spend up to $10,000 on the Rutherford and Hickory Grove precinct voting locations to bring them up to ADA guidelines.

  • Editorial: A fungus among us

  • Don’t let excessive rain ruin your garden

    Whoever thought white floors were a good idea?
    People with maids, maybe. One thing is for sure, spring weather in Kentucky is never boring. You know, if we were smart, we’d dig holes to store all this water for later use this summer, but it’s too wet to dig.
    Lawns look like hay fields, ready to bale and rubber boots are everywhere.

  • Please remember National Day of Prayer

    To the editor:
    In recent years, many people have tried to discredit America’s Christian roots. I am concerned that Christians are deliberately giving up a freedom to enjoy joining corporately to pray for our nation.
    In 1775, the Continental Congress asked the colonies to pray for wisdom in forming a nation. Many times since then, our nation has been called to prayer and the first Thursday of May each year has been designated as the annual observance for the National Day of Prayer (Public Law 100-307-May 5, 1988)

  • ‘Older Americans: Connecting the Community’

    To the editor:
    Every May since 1963, people all across our country have celebrated the enormous contributions of older Americans.
    The Anderson Senior Center is joining in the festivities with a full month of special activities and events, spotlighting the contributions of our seniors to our community.

  • Thanks for helping Alabama mission

    To the editor:
    We would like to thank all the business and individuals that donated water, money and other items to be taken to the tornado victims in Alabama.
    We arrived in Alabama on Sunday night, dropped the truck and unloaded it early Monday morning. They took down 250 cases of water, 18 cases of canned goods, several cases of diapers, baby wipes, sanitary gloves and baby formula.
    After unloading the truck, we volunteered at one of the areas.
