Today's Opinions

  • Where did all the thinkers go?

    I was complaining about technology. Again.
    This was not a new conversation. It’s one I repeat time and time again, with friends, family, random people in line at the grocery store, and most recently, my cousin, a self-professed technofile.
    “This is the best time to be living in,” he told me, as my SUV purred along the highway and he pored over the glow of his smart phone.
    For him, technology is exciting, revolutionary. An evolution of industries building toward a brighter, better future.
    In my mind, technology equals anxiety.  

  • More questions than answers about sale of ECC land, building

    Column as I see ’em …
    Count me among the many still scratching their heads at the tremendous deal the Christian Academy got in buying the old Early Childhood Center building and land for $75,100.
    Frankly, I couldn’t be happier for those folks, especially considering the hard work and due diligence they did before making what turned out to be the only bid on that building.

  • Prepare now for garden-fresh taste this winter

    Well, you don’t need a calendar to know it’s July. The thermometer is telling us it’s hotter than a firecracker.
    If you do nothing else this week, please wash your cars and leave the windows down at night. Anyone knowing of a rain dance please feel free. We need rain.
    Our gardens need 1 inch of rain a week to grow well. The high temperature increases that need.

  • Remembering the flag

    To the editor:
    I am writing this letter in regard to a photo and writing project I recently completed.
    I had some close friends recommend that I submit the picture with my writing to my hometown newspaper, possibly for publication on the Fourth of July.
    Thank you so much for your time and I hope you consider printing my work in your newspaper.

    The Flag
    He looks at the flag waving in the air, too young to know the meaning it bears.

  • Recycle bins a questionable idea at best

    To the editor:
    I see the big picture for Anderson County Environmental Committee’s recycling program to become not only profitable in terms of the environment and landfill waste management, but at the very least cost-neutral for taxpayers or even become self-sustaining.

  • ‘Hoping’ for a ‘change’ this November

    To the editor:
    I hope everyone has been enjoying their summer — gee whiz I wish it would warm it up.
    The cold of November is fast approaching and Election Day looms.
    The Obama Care vote of last week (5-4) was the final straw for me in viewing this president’s intentions to mislead and deceive the American people. Obama orchestrated this “tax” document and has shaken this country intending to deceive the American public with a healthcare bill that is dominated by taxation principles.

  • Christian Academy schools city council on buying real estate

    Column as I see ’em …
    Congratulations go to the folks from the Christian Academy of Lawrenceburg on their purchase of the old Early Childhood Center.
    That property continuing to be used for educational purposes is ideal.
    And what a bargain! The academy made the only bid on the property and will pay just $75,100 for a 45,500 square foot building and nearly 7.5 acres of land in downtown Lawrenceburg.
