Today's Opinions

  • Try sweet potatoes for vitamin rich meals

    Sweet potatoes are one of my favorite foods. They are an excellent source of vitamins A and C.  When selecting sweet potatoes pick the small to medium size for flavor at the peak of perfection. Choose firm, dark, smooth sweet potatoes without wrinkles, bruises, sprouts or decay. Even if cut away, a decayed spot may have already caused the whole potato to take on an unpleasant flavor.

  • ‘Christians’ who responded to atheist’s letter are atheists, too

    To the editor:
    To the editor:
    I would like to respond to the letters addressing my piece that appeared in the Jan. 23 edition of The Anderson News.
    Thanks very much to the Christian’s response to my article about gun sense and extremists. I submit to the public my position concerning religious extremists is substantiated by the letters.
    The religious right, through its own solipsism, ethnocentrism, fear and intimidation impedes democracy by authoritarian dominance and believe the so-called sinners should be dominated by the righteous.

  • When faith and news collide

    This column doesn’t usually tackle religion.
    But religion found me this week in an unusual place.
    The news.
    First, the facts.
    I am a pastor’s daughter.
    As well as sister, daughter and sarcastic lackwit, I’ve also claimed the title of pastor’s daughter for almost a decade now.
    Therefore, I know a little bit (not a lot mind you) about how the religious sausage is made.
    And everyone has an opinion about religion. Including pastor’s daughters.

  • Three politicians who shouldn’t be re-elected

    Column as I see ’em …
    We Kentuckians have been a fairly pious bunch in recent weeks, flaunting our frontiersmen and women attitudes as America’s most populated cities and states wage war against the 2nd Amendment.
    We snicker at New Yorkers and their goofy new gun laws, and mock Chicago as a perfect example of what happens when politicians strip away the rights of law-abiding citizens to defend themselves against gun-toting thugs.

  • Thoughts on protester, recycling

    To the editor:
    After laughing at the recent letter from the atheist who is backing gun control, I discovered that some did stay in there long enough to read the article. I would not have because it was nonsense and lost my interest as being total babble from someone who was trying to impress all of us with his huge verbiage and rhetoric.
    I am only responding because it did bother a friend of mine. I took it as nothing more than science fiction.

  • Betrayal, anger over proposed state pension bill

    The editor of The Anderson News contacted me Friday afternoon and asked if I had anything to say about a pending bill about the state pension system.
    The pension destruction bill eliminates the cost of living adjustment for retirees and creates a new inferior pension plan that does absolutely nothing to address the unfunded liability.

  • Green Christmas equals a snowy Easter

    Wow. A 50-degree drop in temperature is pretty radical, especially when it is within 48 hours. I’m thinking Mother Nature just pleased everyone.
    Wimps to the cold, like me, loved those warm days, and those who embrace the cold, got plenty. Almost three months ago (Nov. 7), I wrote about my winter predictions. Let’s see how I’ve done so far.

  • State’s unfunded liability in crisis, and getting worse

    To the editor:
    With the State Legislature now in its 2013 session, Kentucky citizens can only hope that state leaders act quickly and responsibly to solve a state crisis. The unfunded liability of the Kentucky Retirement Systems (KRS) is growing worse each year.
    Several variables can and do affect the financial conditions of KRS, but one that has been of concern to us for nearly two decades is the General Assembly’s intentional underfunding of their employer contributions to the pension systems.
