Today's Opinions

  • It’s all about the children, sort of

    What would it hurt for children schooled at home to play athletics in the public schools?
    There certainly are plenty of rules that forbid that from happening here in Kentucky, and legal decisions from the courts to back them up, so spare me the usual oatmeal responses, please.
    Instead, answer the question as posed and tell me what it would actually hurt?

  • Get motivated for fall, winter chores with images of a well-stocked pantry

    Can you believe it’s almost the end of summer? The stand is now closed and I’m spending Labor Day laboring in the kitchen.
    It’s the time I finish my canning, freezing and drying of the harvest, and it’s the picture of a beautifully stocked pantry that motivates me. Well, that and the knowledge that I know what I’ll be eating, where it came from and how it was grown.

  • County fire department deserves praise

    To the editor:
    I didn’t know how to get the word out, but I just wanted to give accolades to the Anderson County Fire Department.
    I was attempting to burn a moderate pile of combustibles on Bear Creek Road and thought I had everything under control. I came in to cool off. All of a sudden, the fire was out of control and had burned something less than quarter-acre.

  • Kudos to adult day care

    To the editor:
    The Anderson County community has many assets to be proud of, and one of these resources is the Anderson County Adult Day Care.
    I was introduced to ACADC by a long time friend, Opal Phillips. After my mother passed away, Daddy moved in with my family.
    However, I needed to keep my job and did not know what Daddy would do while I was at work. I did not feel comfortable leaving him by himself.
    So, remembering Opal’s enthusiasm about the programs at the Senior Citizen’s center, I went to investigate.

  • Conway should watch language, work with Hurley

    To the editor:
    Two recent articles in The Anderson News prompted me to take a look at what might be going on with our local health department. The first thing I did to understand this problem was to reread the article “Conway wants health  
    director fired.”

  • Politics, bickering clouding health department’s future

    To the editor:

  • If Carlson’s so smart, why not run for office?

    To the editor:
    Attention residents of Lawrenceburg and Anderson County, we need to erect a new plaque to honor a resident of our county.

  • Ripy House: Love at first sight

    I’ve fallen in love with a house.
    If I were a proper member of my generation, I would be in a serious relationship with my iPhone, not besotted with the T.B. Ripy House.
    Not the most conventional match, I know.
    As a part of my series on downtown Lawrenceburg, a tour of the only historic landmark designated by the historic district commission — a group looking to preserve a swath of Main Street residences and business— seemed essential.
    I don’t delight in the spoils of a war between a house and the wear and tear of time.
