  • Dunked and dunked and dunked again

    Column as I see ’em ...
    It took all of three throws from Judge-Executive John Wayne Conway for me to go from brash and cocky to soaking wet.
    After harassing him for several weeks in the paper and insinuating he couldn’t throw straight, Conway was first in line Friday night to shut me up and ensure he was the first to dunk me in the Little League dunking booth during the fair.
    He was far from the only one. Person after person lined up through the night, in part to make me drink my words and in part to help a Little League player with cancer.

  • Independence Day celebrates struggle for ‘perfect union’

    This 4th of July marks the 235 anniversary of America’s independence from British colonial rule.
    The Continental Congress declared the 13 colonies free and independent states and absolved any allegiance from Great Britain.
    However, just six months prior, this thought was inconceivable. Congress had previously met only to regress their grievances with the British government. What changed this and what did the Declaration bring forth?

  • Pickin’ time is just fine when there’s veggies on the vine

    Where did this month go? It’s the end of June, already. Well, don’t worry. We still have plenty of growing time. Things really are growing. Rains have been so frequent it’s been tough to get in the garden to weed. Consequently, I have a huge companion crop of weeds.
    Those of us who work and garden are always battling the weeds. Seems like when I do have time the weather isn’t cooperative. I keep trying to get my newspaper and straw down but when I have the time off, it storms. Tough to lay newspaper in the wind.

  • Relay thankful for those who helped

    To the editor:
    On behalf of the American Cancer Society and the Relay for Life of Anderson County, I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for helping to make the 2011 Relay for Life a success.
    Once again, the City of Lawrenceburg and the American Legion Post 34 provided the beautiful park for us to hold our event and as always, was very accommodating to whatever we needed.

  • Letter on burning, farming off the mark

    To the editor:
    I am writing to respond to Ms. Deanna Campbell’s letter last week titled “Feed lots bigger problem than burning trash.”
    I strongly disagree with her letter that defended burning household garbage, objected to garbage pickup because “some people cannot afford it” and attacked farmers — especially beef cattle farmers.

  • Barnett wrong, Conway right

    To the editor:
    In response to Magistrate Kenny Barnett’s remarks in last week’s edition of The Anderson News about Nick Satterly being the new parks and recreation director, I thought I would express my pleasure with Judge-Executive John Wayne Conway and the parks and recreation committee for choosing Nick as director.
    The only complaint I can make toward his new position is that I lost one of the best employees to ever work at our HVAC department.
