  • Tips for preparing next year’s garden, trees

    I'm sorry. Apparently, all we needed to end the drought was for me to put in a hose spigot at the bottom of the hill.
    The years of hauling water in gallon jugs up and down the hill, from plant to plant to plant is over. Can't say I'll miss it, though it did wonders for my biceps.
    Just as I'm ready to turn on the hose, Mother Nature steps in to supply all I need. Well, at least I'm ready for next year.

  • Family Fun Fest organizers say thanks

    To the editor:    
    The Anderson County Family Resource and Youth Service Centers would like to thank all the community partners, school staff and volunteers for their continued support of the Anderson County Family Fun Fest.

  • Celebrate Senior Center month

    To the editor:
    September is national Senior Center Month. This is our opportunity to showcase the Anderson Senior Center and to promote a positive image of aging.
    We will celebrate with the 2012 theme “It happens at my senior center. My life. My time. My way.”
    Our senior center in Anderson County is a gorgeous community center, full of life and fun. Our membership is 400 strong and our volunteer crew numbers more than 200 people, all dedicated to the same mission.

  • Skeptical about spraying branches

    To the editor:
    The article in last week’s paper about spraying branches along the roadways seems bizarre.
    I think the Anderson County Fiscal Court needs to get the advice of a certified arborist and references.
    I can’t imagine a chemical that kills branches, but doesn’t effect the tree.
    Cutting the limbs back to the tree would last for more than the three years that they are guaranteeing.
    What about the overspray onto private property?

  • Best bet for getting rid of bed bugs is to hire a professional

    An office visitor inquired about how to get rid of bed bugs in an apartment.
    The best answer is to hire a professional pest control company.
    They have access to insecticides that are not available to a homeowner. Professional used insecticides such as Temprid, Transport and Phantom, all registered trademark insecticides, tend to be more effective than bed bug sprays sold by retailers.

  • Put marijuana to work in Kentucky

    To the editor:
    There are two bills coming up in January for our representatives to vote on and you need to let them know where you stand.   
    The first, is sponsored by state Sen. Clark, is to legalize medical marijuana. This herb can help cancer and glaucoma patients and so many more that, with research, the possibilities are unknown.

  • Christ belongs in public square, everywhere else

    To the editor:
    Editor’s note: The following is in response to a letter in last week’s paper by Maxye Henry titled “Keep Christ out of the public square.”
    Ms. Henry, did you ever think that just maybe this is the reason that our country is in the shape it is in?
    We have taken God out of everything, including the schools, courthouses and even the Oval Office.

  • King is example of Dems’ war on women

    To the editor:
    Any one who state Rep. Kim King comes in contact with knows she is a real jewel; a fine Christian, freedom-loving American.
    Kim in all things puts "we the people" first.
    Kim is known, not just here but across this nation, as a great freedom fighter, and today more then ever she is greatly needed.
    Democrats claim there is a war on women. They should know because here in Anderson County it’s being waged against Kim King.
