    Paper gives hope that ‘truth, justice’ will prevail

    To the editor:

    The Anderson News’ news team is doing a good job regarding forceful and factual investigative reporting on recent difficult and important issues like the septic tank inspections and the location of the health department.

    Also, the paper was way in front of the Herald-Leader about the real facts in the case of the police removing from the mother’s home the child who was later murdered.

  • COLUMN: Rules of thumb help predict the 'nowcast'

    I don’t know about you guys, but I washed all my sweatshirts last week. Now that October is here, we can expect a whole year of weather. One day it’s summer, the next fall, then winter and summer. That’s just one week.

    Fall is just as fickle as spring. Since the weather seems to affect our lives daily, I thought a little knowledge might be helpful.

  • COLUMN: Attitude makes a difference

    An open letter to the University of Kentucky football team:

    The No. 1 team in the nation came into your house and left with a win after putting up 41 points to your 7.

    Another top 5 team came into your house and handed you a loss, 38 to 20.

    Obviously, neither of these endings is quite what you (or your fans) hoped for — but heads up, boys. It’s only as bad as you make it.

  • COLUMN: Closing Main Street not the best option

    Alienating people by blocking off Main Street to those not willing to purchase a $35 ticket to taste wine and bourbon is probably not the best way to preserve the city’s downtown.

    That’s what happened last Friday when The Society for the Historic Preservation of the City of Lawrenceburg Inc. held a fundraiser and the mayor’s office approved closing Main Street to accommodate the event.

  • COLUMN: Make the effort to volunteer in the community

    Volunteering, a great opportunity to help people, meet people, and get recommendations for college. In fact, just getting involved in our community helps. Have you ever thought about it? While sure we can’t all be a mayor or judge, but the little things we do help so much.

    Car-based development harms the least among us

    To the editor:

    Juanita Stratton does not drive. Like the majority of Anderson County residents, she lives in a residential subdivision, far away from essential destinations such as the doctor’s office, grocery stores, schools, and parks.

  • EDITORIAL: Provide opportunities to prevent 'brain drain'

    Anderson County will be presented with an opportunity over the next couple years to clog up the drain and prevent its brains from slipping away into other areas. This is an opportunity the county should fully embrace.

    As a story on this week’s front page points out, the Lawrenceburg campus of Bluegrass Community and Technical College has seen a 46 percent increase in enrollment in the past year. Around 800 students are enrolled at the campus.

    As the story also says, those students are of all ages — from 16 to 83, says Campus Liaison Rhonda Wheeler.

  • COLUMN: Time to winterize your tools

    Well, we were a little dry. I’d say we’ve definitely gotten caught up on our rainfall. This is the time when I am really thankful for a mud room. Three dogs and one cat equals to 16 paw prints per step, and we all know they always travel in a straight line. Not. Spanky runs the Indy 500 whether she’s going out or coming inside. Tiller just dances and Boomer the cat likes to twirl. I can’t blame the blind dog.
