  • The 2 million card man

    When the Commons 4 Kids charity delivers its second million baseball cards this year, Jerry Milburn knows exactly which baseball card he’ll choose to mark the occasion.
    A 1989 Upper Deck Ken Griffey, Jr., rookie card.
    The baseball card that sparked decades of collecting.
    The good-luck charm Milburn’s mother brought to Bingo nights.
    The card that inspired the beginnings of Milburn’s trading card charity, Commons 4 Kids.

  • Anderson County owes Todd big debt of gratitude

    Very quietly and without a hint of self-aggrandizement, Harold Todd has become one of the best taxpayer advocates Anderson County has ever seen.
    If that name sounds familiar, it should. A reserved, fairly quiet man who has spent his life crunching numbers as a CPA for the state and establishing a network of rental homes, Todd rose to prominence a couple of years ago when he was tapped by former Judge-Executive Steve Conway to serve on the local board of health in what appeared to be a last-ditch effort to keep it solvent.

  • A broccoli twist on traditional Kentucky country ham recipe

    Everyone at the Anderson County Senior Center enjoyed Kentucky country ham and broccoli grits when I served it there last week. They scraped the pan clean.
    Country ham is a Kentucky tradition. Only six states produce country hams – Kentucky, North Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, Georgia and Missouri.

  • Skip tilling when planting watermelons

    My potatoes and lettuce are growing! I haven’t really put anything else out. I should have put my broccoli and cauliflower out, but then it rained before I could.  Spring rains will complicate our gardening life, but we can’t do it without them.  We just have to be flexible with our schedule.

  • Believers in creation against teaching evolution

    To the editor:
    We read of interest in last week’s Anderson News the article about teaching evolution in our school system.
    God created everything!
    We believe in the creation as recorded in the Bible. We are members of Christ’s church at Glensboro and we feel that God’s people have sat by idle far too long. We allowed God to be taken out of our schools, courts and homes and it is time for God’s people to stand up for what they believe in.

  • Promote child abuse awareness

    To the editor:

  • Public library operates well, deserves community support

    To the editor:
    I think our library, and the other libraries in Kentucky, do an outstanding job.
    Joining with other libraries in the area, we have access to most any information we may need. And, the price is very low.
    Perhaps you disagree with the method of taxation, with the amount, and certainly with retention of reserves. But the library does operate well, serves a need in the community and deserves our support. I hope you visit the library often to observe the operation and the number of patrons served.

  • Splash park location just downright ridiculous

    Column as I see ’em …
    Just when I start to think the city council is ready to bury the hatchet with county government, it steps up and reaffirms just how wide the chasm between the two really is.
    The city’s decision to move forward with a splash park is the latest indicator of how unwilling it is to join forces with county government for the benefit of this community.
