  • Anderson News a 'homecoming' of sorts for publisher

    Hello Anderson County.

    After nearly a decade of writing, photography, graphic design, social media and telling a community’s story, I’ve returned to the business of writing, photography, graphic desi… yeah, it’s been a little confusing for me, too.

  • Sweet 16: It's Madness!!

    Editorial cartoon by Terry Wise.

  • Supplements can be helpful but not always the best way to add nutrients

    By Joan Martin

    Guest columnist

     

    Are vitamin and mineral supplements really beneficial for you?  Will they help you feel better by improving your health?  Consumers are bombarded by marketing campaigns which claim that vitamin and mineral supplements will reduce your risk of chronic disease.  In the grocery store multivitamins and mineral supplements usually have their own section.

  • Beliefs meaningless if you don't fight for them

    By Brian Owens

    Last Thursday was a sad day for those hoping to see the tide turn in Frankfort regarding legal protection for unborn children.

    The House Health and Welfare Committee struck down three pro-life bills that were designed to reduce the approximately 4,000 abortions that are performed yearly in Kentucky. That’s an average of nearly 11 babies murdered every day.

  • LETTER: Tell senators to support HB31 to preserve landowner's rights

    To the editor:

    Do we live in a democracy? The dictionary defines a democracy as a form of  government in which the supreme power is vested in the people and exercised  by them or by their elected agents under a free electoral system.

    The passage of HB 31 by the House was an indication of democracy at work –  a case of private property rights versus corporate interests. This bill  prohibits the use of eminent domain by developers of hazardous natural gas liquids pipelines.

  • Tilling garden now gives head start to garden

    I know it’s March. Tournament basketball is on TV. So, where is that spring weather?

    Tomorrow is officially the first day of spring, and I believe we are all looking forward to a little more warmth.  But the “old man” just doesn’t seem to want to go. On the bright side, the Earth is shifting, so warmth will eventually get here. When the mercury does rise to the upper 90s and people start complaining, I’m going to speak two words to them. (No, not those two words.) I’ll simply say, “Beats winter!”

  • Fresh green beans best when picked before seeds develop in pod

    By Joan Martin

    Guest columnist

    There have been a few days lately when it looked like it might be time to start gardening, or at least tilling.

    Frozen vegetables are OK when there’s nothing in the garden, but I love fresh veggies. Green beans, also known as snap or string beans, are the most popular edible pod bean in the country. I prefer to grow bush beans because I don’t want to bother with supports.
