Today's Opinions

  • 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.

  • I’ll be the judge of what is fair

    Column as I see ’em …
    Before reading this, please take a moment to read the leadoff letter to the editor next door.
    Wasn’t that great? That is, hands down, the best letter I’ve received this year.
    The writer makes some interesting arguments, including that Anderson County and the City of Lawrenceburg would be better served were I in charge of everything. After all, who better to run everything than the person who knows everything about everything?

  • A view of Lawrenceburg through the curious eyes of a newcomer

    The most popular question people have asked me since I moved here—besides “Are you sure you’re 22?”— is “Where are you from?”
    Due to my nomadic past, I never know exactly what my answer should be.
    I’m like one of those hanging hydroponic tomato plants whose roots just sort of dangle there, never touching permanent soil.
    Sometimes I wish I had stronger roots to the places I lived.
    To make up for it, I try to surround myself with history of others.

  • Waiting to fix taxing districts not an option

    Taxpayers can’t afford to wait what could be five years to fix what Judge-Executive John Wayne Conway accurately describes as the county’s “out-of-control” taxing districts.
    During last Tuesday’s meeting of the city council and fiscal court, our elected officials made the first step in what will be a five-year process of merging together. (See story, A1.)
