Today's Opinions

  • Look to the garden for Christmas gift ideas

    Happy Halloween! I think October came in on a skateboard and went out on a jet pack! Time is just flying by and the next two months may well be the same way. That said, didn’t we have a beautiful St. Luke’s Little Summer! I so wanted to play hooky from work and be outside. Now it’s cold again! Don’t worry though, we should have one more warm spell, known as Indian Summer, before Thanksgiving.

  • Defending Biden

    To the editor:

  • Thank you for news coverage of nonprofit

    To the editor:
    As a member of the Board of Directors of T.O.U.C.H. (Treasuring Our Underprivileged Citizens with Heart) of Central Kentucky,  I thank the Anderson News and Meaghan Downs for the excellent coverage recently provided for this new charitable organization that is headquartered in Anderson County.
    Although we are small in number right now, the organization has been very busy working to assist people in need of home safety repairs to prevent in-home accidents and to provide weatherization in homes of the elderly.  

  • Depression support group needed in Lawrenceburg

    To the editor:
    I would like to know why Anderson County does not have a depression support group.
    I have had depression for several years and am sure others in our community have it, too. We need a church or somewhere to meet each week for support.
    The closest group I have found is in Lexington. Some of us don’t want to drive that far.
    I feel we need a support group here, not only for myself but others.
    Why can’t some church here step up and start a group for us? It would be greatly appreciated.

  • Stevens would be genuine ‘education representative’

    To the editor:
    I am writing this letter to urge people to exercise their right and privilege to vote on Tuesday.
    We need someone who can and will represent all of us in Frankfort. We need someone who knows and can work with Gov. Beshear, Sen. Julian Carroll and the House leadership to help Anderson County.

  • Know the facts of Chandler’s record

    To the editor:
    If you’re voting, please educate yourself. Know the facts … remember, don’t believe everything you hear on TV.
    Over the past few months I have had the opportunity to get to know a man who my parents, my grandparents, and most likely you, would consider to be a true gentleman, deserving of your support and trust. That man is my friend, Ben Chandler. Being raised on a farm, and being taught the importance of hard work, honesty, and integrity, Ben and I immediately shared many similarities in our own lives.

  • Recalling the ghosts of presidential elections past

    If you can’t remember your first election, I certainly can.  
    In 2008 I sat on my futon in my college dorm room and sealed the envelope on my Illinois absentee ballot with a mixture of dread and hope.
    A few years later, I drove myself to a local Nebraska precinct to vote in the state and municipal races.
    I was nervous, and probably babbled to the woman signing me in.
    Stepping up to the booth, I felt like I always do now when I vote, that the weight of American democracy depended on my shoulders.

  • Right, wrong ways to bust scam artists

    As the elderly woman cried in her living room Monday morning, I visualized holding the oak club I keep in my truck and fetching the bad guy I hoped would show up a good lick right in the chops.
    Instead I held a camera and settled for the fact that if he did show, Det. Bryan Taylor would bust his chops the legal way and I could put the photo of him doing so on this week’s front page.
    As is generally the case with yellow-belly scum who prey on the elderly, the guy was a no-show.
