Today's Opinions

  • Some helpful, some not on college paper

    To the editor:
    In recent weeks I was given my final assignment for my English 101 class at Bluegrass Community and Technical College here in town.
    We were told to choose a political issue that affected our county in which we felt strongly about. I chose that we, as a county, lack full-time female patrol officers and want to point out that the city police department did all but refuse me information.
    I was very disappointed in the way I was treated and felt as though I was ignored and denied information that as a citizen of this town I have a right to know.

  • Leadership needed on cemetery issue

    When the Greek philosopher Aristotle famously quipped, “Nature abhors a vacuum,” he probably didn’t have the mayor of Lawrenceburg in mind.
    Were he alive today, though, that’s probably just what he’d think about the leadership vacuum that exists regarding the mayor’s cemetery debacle.

  • Support for Rothenburger

    To the editor:
    I am writing to acknowledge my support for Shelby County Judge-Executive Rob Rothenburger for Kentucky’s next Agriculture Commissioner and to ask for your support.

  • Cemetery policy is much too strict

    To the editor:
    The rulers of the cemetery have spoken and I’m confident many hearts are troubled.
    Yes, I agree there are some gravesites that are overstated to say the least. Many, including that of my parents, are well maintained and conservative.
    It is hard for me to understand how the removal of these concrete floral urns honoring my parents will ease mowing. The urns are placed against the monument and should create no additional problems. The flowers are nurtured and watered several times weekly, all of which allows some moments of reflection.

  • Plenty of time left to get garden planted

    OK, enough with the rain already. Let’s expect the sun to come out. It will and it will warm up and dry up. Remember how it stayed warm long into fall? Well, keep that in mind. Our gardens will flourish. They just won’t be producing as early as we want.
    Big deal.
    Those of you down hearted because you haven’t even tilled yet need to just chill. It is not too late to get the garden going. We have plenty of time to grow our favorite veggies. It may be late August before we start canning, but we will can.

  • Polling places are changed

    As we enter the home stretch toward the May 17 Primary Election for state officials, I thought it to be important to talk about the final decisions for the polling locations.
    During April’s meeting of Anderson County Board of Elections, the board gave until May 9 at 10:30 a.m. (special called meeting) for Judge-Executive John Wayne Conway to get approval from fiscal court to spend up to $10,000 on the Rutherford and Hickory Grove precinct voting locations to bring them up to ADA guidelines.

  • Editorial: A fungus among us

  • Don’t let excessive rain ruin your garden

    Whoever thought white floors were a good idea?
    People with maids, maybe. One thing is for sure, spring weather in Kentucky is never boring. You know, if we were smart, we’d dig holes to store all this water for later use this summer, but it’s too wet to dig.
    Lawns look like hay fields, ready to bale and rubber boots are everywhere.
