Today's Opinions

  • Fasting from nostalgia

    Going back is my specialty.
    Recently, I journeyed to my birthplace and personal Mecca all of things food, sand and sea—Long Island, NY.
    My childhood is wrapped up in hazy memories of trips on the ferry, my face smacked with the smell of salt in the air. Melted coconut Popsicle on sandy toes. Biting my lip right before diving before the white crest of a wave.

  • Anderson’s new $2 million eyesore

    If the average picture is indeed worth a thousand words, this group of photos of the weeds growing unabated around the new health department building are worth millions.
    That’s good news, because instead of my usual 700-word column, I’ll instead let the photos do most my talking for me this week.

  • America’s Civil War brought about civil rights

    April 12 of this year marked the 150th anniversary of America’s Civil War.
    Outside the American Revolution and the creation of the United State Constitution, the Civil War is arguably the most seminal event in American history.
    For the next four years, Kentucky and the rest of the United States will remember this event and its lasting effects on American society.

  • Hey Rues: Here’s a taste of the real Glenn Beck

    To the editor:
    After reading the Rue’s heartfelt tribute to Glenn Beck, the soul of Fox News, I was almost moved to tears.
    With crying towel in hand I read each paragraph with hopes that some facts might emerge, but alas as usual, I could find none.
    But, hopefully a few of Glenn’s historic quotes below will give your readers an idea of why the writers of this tribute adore and will so deeply miss this warm and compassionate man.

  • Longing for the days when Cornish was judge-executive

    To the editor:
    I never thought I would want former judge-executive Steve Cornish back in office, but maybe I was wrong — at least the county roads got mowed equally.
    I live in the Ninevah area and we haven’t been touched this year. Check out our stop sign at the corner of Lanes Mill and Ninevah roads. I guess I no longer have to stop there.
    Perhaps if I have a wreck there I can sue Anderson County like Lea Beasemore, only I would win.

  • C’mon, folks, let’s dish a little dirt

    I love science and all its “ologies,” especially meteorology, archaeology, entomology, geology and pedology, the study of dirt.
    So, I thought I’d combine all of the above this week, because we make an impact on all of them, right here in our own back yards.
    So let’s dish a little dirt.
