Today's Opinions

  • Developer can teach local government a lesson

    Larry Cann and his attorney certainly don’t need nor have they solicited my advice, but I’m going to give it to them anyway.
    Were I them, I wouldn’t waste my time, money or effort squabbling with Harry Wise Road residents who are fighting Cann’s efforts to build a subdivision. Instead, I’d go to court have a judge declare invalid the planning and zoning commission’s recommendations to deny that subdivision, and here’s why.

  • Fall’s arrival brings with it plenty to do

    It’s official. Fall has arrived and the colors won’t be far behind, we just have to wait for cooler temperatures for the more colorful pallets.
    The dogs are patiently waiting for the leaves to fall so they can play in the piles. I think it’s going to be a spectacular fall and we have the weather to thank for it.
    Weather is the main factor in the brilliance and longevity of fall leaves. As the length of sunlight falls, the chlorophyll levels fall as well. The chlorophyll then gets blocked by a cell layer.

  • Archery teams says thanks

    To the editor:
    I would like to take the time and opportunity to thanks those who came and patronized the car wash we had Sept. 17 at The Soap Factory.
    It is due to the generosity of our community that we are able to get one step closer to our goal of taking three teams from Anderson County to the World NASP Tournament World Champion title.
    We could not begin to attempt this task without the continuing love and support from the businesses and citizens of Anderson County.
    We hope to make you proud once again.

  • Paying for KU’s mistakes

    To the editor:
    So, Kentucky Utilities messed up and know wants its customers to pay for its lack of management.
    It hired a company to do a job, didn’t watch over the people that company hired and for months let that person write down what he wanted without even spot-checking his work.
    Now, do you really think we should pay for KU’s bad management? Really?
    Enough is enough. We do need to stand up because KU has it where we don’t have a choice. We only have one electric company in the city, and one electric company in the county.

  • Don’t put one man’s profit motives ahead of overall public interest

    To the editor:
    I read with great interest the article titled “Upset residents lobby for, get public hearing,” [in last week’s newspaper].
    I attended and participated in all planning and zoning meetings regarding Mr. Larry Cann’s zoning change request within the vicinity of Harry Wise Road, including the fiscal court meeting which this article featured.

  • Strange beats normal any day

    Kentucky, you’re strange.
    Since I’ve crossed the state line, Kentucky’s fed me a steady diet of weirdness.
    Please, take that as the highest of compliments.
    I distrust normalcy, though I’ve spent the better part of two decades striving for it.  
    Perfectly hand-drawn circles.
    A flawless driver’s license photo.
    Walking and talking at the same time.
    I’ve concluded that these impossible feats must be symptomatic of the insane.  

  • It’s time to pick a Constitutional fight

    It’s time to take a stand, dear readers, against the usurpers in state government who hand down toothless, unconstitutional dictates on how we, as a county, govern ourselves.
    For months our city council and fiscal court have bounced around the idea of merged government, with the main impetus being to reign in what are clearly unconstitutional taxing districts that have no direct accountability to the people of Anderson County.

  • Make sure to scrub garden delights

    T-Shirts and sweatshirts … it’s that kind of weather.
    Fall officially arrives this Friday, bringing both the good and the bad.
    Those who dislike hot weather, love it. The rest of us, not so much.
    Like spring, fall is a roller coaster of weather fronts, bouncing us back and forth between hot and cold, sunny and rainy and breezes and gales. We can be in T-shirts and sandals one day and bundling up the next.
