Today's Opinions

  • Listen to tree frogs for next storm forecast

    Those of us residing in the country have had the loudest of concerts, almost daily. It’s the peepers! Tree frogs have been making lots of noise, day and night, and it’s been wonderful! Did you know that peepers always get louder before a rain? True.
    There are more ways to predict rain. Spiders don’t weave their webs if it’s going to rain. Dewless mornings also predict rain.
    Dandelions and other flowers will close their blossoms before a rain.
    All are easy ways to lead you to the mower, instead of the lawn chair while the sun is out.

  • Attacks on the church coming from within

    To the editor:
    It is disheartening to read and listen to all the hateful and disparaging things being said about the church these past few weeks.

  • Christian Academy thanks ACHS archery team

    To the editor:

  • Preserve and protect the beauty of Wildcat Creek

    To the editor:
    I can’t describe my joy at hearing of the upset about the state of Wildcat Creek.

  • Closing Wildcat Road sickens reader

    To the editor:
    It ills me to see that some disrespectful knuckleheads dumped their trash off Wildcat Road. I hope they get caught some day. However, the idea of closing part of the road is more sickening. So many of us drive it just to enjoy this county treasure. I am sure it is rough to be a county employee who has to clean what they can, but I would think it is part of the job. I hope and pray county officials will not let this happen

  • News versus the machine

    This column is brought to you by robots. Or soon, it could be.
    As Terminator-esque as that sounds, removing humans from the news making process isn’t science fiction.
    It is reality.  
    A start-up company called Narrative Science allows companies grappling with staff layoffs to employ computer software, as opposed to a staff writer, to format statistics and scores and even create their own angles for an article.  

  • Still want to spread Hurley around, doc?

    Column as I see ’em …
    While writing a news story this week about the financial foolishness that has been uncovered by the new interim health director, I couldn’t help but recall what our old buddy Dr. Steve Davis said about the previous health director.
    You remember Davis, right? He’s the interim state health director (God and Gov. Beshear know why, but I certainly don’t) who has some sort of man-crush on former Anderson County health director Brandon Hurley.

  • ‘Guys and Dolls’ deserve plenty of support

    To the editor:
    I want to extend an invitation to everyone in Anderson County and beyond to come to something that is beyond the sports at the high school. There is something else evolving among our young people, and we have many talents emerging from our drama and choir department at the high school.
