Today's Opinions

  • Time for Gov. Beshear to reign in health cabal

    Column as I see ’em …
    Now that he has been comfortably re-elected, perhaps Gov. Beshear will take a moment and throw a rope around those in his health cabinet who can’t seem to keep their meddling noses out of Anderson County’s business.
    Our 12-person health board, which consists of the county’s CEO and members with more degrees than a thermometer is perfectly capable (these days, at least) of making decisions without interference from state health officials.

  • Turner PTO offers thanks for Titan Fest

    To the editor:
    The PTO of Robert B. Turner would like to thank everyone who made this year’s Titan Fest such a wonderful success.
    We couldn’t have done it without the teachers, parents and other volunteers who gave so generously of their time  and resources.
    We would especially like to recognize those individuals and businesses who donated items for the auction and basket raffle.
    We also want to acknowledge the high school students who gave up their Friday night to bring their energy and enthusiasm to the games.

  • Your attendance is requested

    I’m an expert in attending meetings.
    And you should be, too.  
    Contrary to common knowledge, things happen at those public meetings.
    I know that’s a pretty big shock. You might want to sit down for a moment.
    Money exchanges hands, new policies and ordinances up for review and passage.
    I should know. I write about them.

  • Bad apples spoiling Southwestern’s barrel

    Column as I see ’em …
    Somerset, home of the Southwestern football team Anderson spanked so badly Friday night to advance to the state finals, is apparently home to a few rather sore losers.
    It was bad enough that one of Southwestern’s assistant coaches had to be booted out for mouthing off to a referee, but he really went over the top when he apparently flipped the bird to Anderson fans while leaving the field.
    Who does he think he is? Jets coach Rex Ryan?

  • Vegetables, like families, share certain traits

    Here it is, the end of November already. I can’t believe it has flown by so fast.
    We’re about to sit down to a big meal and a day of rubbing elbows with kin. It doesn’t matter if you like them or not, you’re family, you’re going to spend the day with them, so don’t stress. One day does not a lifetime make.
    Thanksgiving is all about family and believe it or not, yours is not the only one there. Vegetables have families, too, and they didn’t get to the table by hanging out together. They have their own likes and dislikes.

  • Spotting the Wienermobile on the Bourbon Trail

    This isn’t bat country.
    It’s Wienermobile country.
    Much like native son Hunter S. Thompson, I thought some sort of hallucination had started to take hold when I saw a 27-foot hot dog car from my driver’s seat.
    Thanks to a tip from a reader who first spotted the vehicle, I learned about life on the road from behind the wheel of a hot dog.
    For “hotdoggers” and Wisconsinites Kylie Hodges and Dylan Hackbarth, Oscar Mayer hot dogs paved the way for their year-long road trip with the Wienermobile.
