Today's Opinions

  • Don’t do away with constables

    To the editor:
    A recent study commissioned by Kentucky Justice and Public Safety Secretary J. Michael Brown, has perked the issue of constables to the surface again.
    Though in summary it consigns the office to the ash heap of history, Mr. Brown states that he has a main concern.
    It is an office without any mandated training.
    So the question begs itself. Training, why not? This is a no-brainer. A professional needs training. Many constables already have it others receive it through the Kentucky Constable Association.

  • Editor has right to speak, whether you like him or not

    To the editor:
    In response to Pat Bullock’s letter to the editor last week I’d like to point out that the fact that The Anderson News is available to the public doesn’t mean it’s a “public newspaper,” and that Mr. Carlson is violating some community right by expressing his opinion in it.  

  • Illegal dumping shows lack of respect

    To the editor:
    I can’t say I know the answer to the county’s trash and recycling questions, but there is one facet of the issue that I’m reminded about every day as I walk my dogs, and it makes me very, very sad.

  • ‘Honey wagon’ owner owes me pair of sneakers

    You know you’re having a bad evening when you’ve just stepped in a nightmarish stew of someone else’s feces, urine, used toilet paper and God only knows what else.
    Remote in hand, I had just settled in for some Monday Night Football when my phone rang. It was a tip that someone had just illegally offloaded a septic tank trunk on Wildcat Road and the caller figured I’d want that story for this week’s paper.

  • Community thanked for election day cooperation

    Another election has come and gone. Even though we experienced a large voter turnout, we had very few problems.
    As usual, the Attorney General’s Office visited several of the voting locations looking for voter fraud and election officer compliance. Nothing was found.

  • Beat cold with indoor garden

    Like it or not winter is rolling in on us and Mother Nature is doing her best to get us used to it.
    Cold nights, with a low of 19 so far at the farm, and 50-degree days help our bodies adjust to the upcoming change. It’s like having continuous nudges that winter is on its way. Still, how many had to scramble to find their ice scrapper the other day?

  • Extension offers parenting program Dec. 12

    Is there a perfect parent? I’m interested in hearing from you. If the answer is yes, my guess is that every perfect parent needs the same thing. Think about it.
    Past studies on parenting styles suggest that parents may get what they want by the way they parent, i.e. parents who believe that obedience is the most important characteristic will parent in a way that encourages obedience.
