Today's Opinions

  • COLUMN: Take advantage of odd November weather

    Who would have thought that we’d have 70-degree days in the middle of November?
    I just can’t figure out Kentucky’s weather and I’ve been trying for the past 14 years. Last year at this time the high was 54, with an average of 44 degrees. The year before that we had a high of 34 degrees. Maybe I brought a little Arizona weather back with me and it just took the scenic route.

  • LETTER: Generosity to vets appreciated

    To the editor:
    On behalf of all members of American Legion Post No. 34 and Auxiliary Unit No. 34, I wish to extend my heartfelt thanks to Open Bible Church (Jeff Tyler, pastor), Family Worship Center (Tony Andrade, pastor) and New Life Christian Church (Vern Huber, pastor) and the respective members of those churches in their generous recognition of all veterans by providing a delicious meal for those in attendance at the Veterans Day ceremony which took place on the Fairgrounds on Nov. 7.

  • LETTER: Support needed for House of Trees

    To the editor:
    I urge everyone in Anderson County to attend House of Trees on Friday, Nov. 19 or Saturday, Nov. 20 at the former Bill Waits Auto Mall.
    In 2002, I organized, with the help of family and friends, Relay For Life in Anderson County. This has become the most anticipated annual event celebrating life, remembering passed loved ones and raising money to defeat cancer.

  • LETTER: Plenty of Veterans Day opportunities

    To the editor:
    I gladly accepted the two Veterans Day invitations I received, one from King Middle School, the other from the Christian Academy of Lawrenceburg.
    It was an honor to be at King Middle School with Patriots, young and elderly, that served our country at home and on foreign soil.
    With CAL, I celebrated Veterans Day at the Lawrenceburg United Methodist Church. The Rev. John McDaniel delivered a heartfelt, first-hand account of his US Army experience.

  • COLUMN: We need rain, but we don’t need meth

    Column as I see ’em …
    When the lack of rain turned brown the combination of weeds and grass that make up my lawn, I wasn’t particularly pleased.
    When my wife started compensating for the drought by hosing down her precious flowers and such with pricey city water, I edged toward anger.
    But when I hear this getting-to-the-point-of-ridiculous drought has the potential to halt deer season, I was downright steamed.

  • COLUMN: Have you met our new website?

    A member of The Anderson News team just recently underwent a facelift. No, it wasn’t me. And actually, it wasn’t even a human.
    That’s right, our website, www.theandersonnews.com, is looking a lot better these days — and younger, too, I might add.
    While there is always room for improvement, I think you’ll find it much nicer than anything we’ve had before — not to mention it’s a lot more user-friendly.

  • LETTER: Candidates made tea party proud

    To the editor:
    Yes, nationwide did prove to be rough for the Democratic Party in last Tuesday’s elections.
    Make no mistake: The Republican Party is on probation — you can say on last-chance status.
    If Republicans do not follow through on the side of the American people, they will no longer exist.

  • LETTER: Veterans Day service coverage was ‘very nice’

    To the editor:
    I just want to say that the article you did in the [Nov. 10 edition of the] newspaper about the Veterans Day service is very nice. I am so happy to see them getting some news coverage once again. You have been a good asset to the newspaper for our veterans and you are truly appreciated.
