Today's Opinions

  • Spotting the Wienermobile on the Bourbon Trail

    This isn’t bat country.
    It’s Wienermobile country.
    Much like native son Hunter S. Thompson, I thought some sort of hallucination had started to take hold when I saw a 27-foot hot dog car from my driver’s seat.
    Thanks to a tip from a reader who first spotted the vehicle, I learned about life on the road from behind the wheel of a hot dog.
    For “hotdoggers” and Wisconsinites Kylie Hodges and Dylan Hackbarth, Oscar Mayer hot dogs paved the way for their year-long road trip with the Wienermobile.

  • Clerk says thanks for election help

    To the editor:
    I want to take just a minute to thanks all those involved in helping make the General Election process go as smoothly as possible.
    I will start with my staff. The election process never stops in our office. My staff continually works to ensure that everything is ready for Election Day. My deputies work daily to process voter registration information along with preparing for the upcoming election.

  • Deputies did great job

    To the editor:
    You can tell a lot about a person when you take them out of their comfort zone.
    Friday night we had the honor of working with the Anderson County Sheriff’s Office. The event: Dinner With The Deputies. The cause: Shop With a Cop.
    The folks did a wonderful job and, even with all of my corny cop jokes, they were not distracted.

  • Herndon, Bearcat broadcast team help preserve lifetime memories

    To the editor:
    For most of us who enjoy sports, especially high school sports, we’ve been blessed with the coverage of John Herndon and The Anderson News.
    As a dad, Wednesday can’t come fast enough. While certainly the front page catches my eye, to be quite honest, I always start with John’s sports and work backwards to the lesser important news and information.  We’ve become accustomed to the multiple, award winning columns that he produces each week as “sports editor.”

  • Delivering results that are just too good

    I bumped into a frustrated fellow Monday night who wanted a help wanted ad he purchased pulled from this week’s paper.
    Seems the ad, which ran last week for a minimum wage, temporary position, had generated so many phone calls that his phone was ringing almost non-stop.
    “I can’t take it anymore,” he said. “Just today we’ve received 40 calls.”
    I told the fellow I’d do what I can to oblige even though it was well past our normal advertising deadline.

  • Here’s a way to learn more about organic gardening

    Well, November is already half over and Thanksgiving is just around the corner.
    So, I’d like to take this time to say “Thank you!” I don’t think there’s a week that goes by that I don’t hear nice things from you. It really means a lot to hear your comments and have feedback on my columns. Thanks to you, I always learn something and for that I am very grateful.

  • A message for people who don’t like church

    I saw this on a billboard in Cincinnati a couple of years ago. At first glance I was offended, but the more I thought about it the more I realized what the ad was saying.
    The ad said people have grown tired of churches which are lifeless in nature, ran by the pastor, an elder or some prominent family or individual rather than relying on God and his word to direct the church.

  • Thanks all around for help with 5K run

    To the editor:
    I just want to write to say how proud I am to be associated with so many fine people who want to help young people.
    We put on 5K run to raise money for the boys’ basketball team and had112 runners register.
    First of all a thank you goes to the mayor for letting us use the city streets and city police. Police Chief Tommy Burris worked well with us, and the runners loved running on Main Street because it is flat and they could breathe properly. Thanks are also due the sheriff’s office.
