    Paper should focus on Obama, not Dahlen

    To the editor:

    Picking up [last week’s edition of] The Anderson News, as we always do, was a true disappointment to my husband and myself.

    It’s not that the “Dentist charged” (you know the rest) story was in the paper, but where and how it was displayed. You must have needed this for your ratings.

    With what is happening, the destruction of our nation by [President] Obama’s agenda, is this the best you can do?

    Fourth celebration worth the wait

    To the editor:

    I would like to extend a generous thank you to those who made the rescheduled Fourth of July celebration on the Green a success.

    We survived the storm and were rewarded with an excellent band, a fantastic fireworks display and the opportunity to have the community come together for an affordable evening.

    Thanks to our mayor and the city of Lawrenceburg, and thanks to the American Legion Ladies Auxiliary for a fine parade.

  • COLUMN: Some good news about newspapers

    Column as I see ’em ...

    When it comes to news about newspapers, the news isn’t usually very good these days.

    Sometimes, though, we run across reasons to celebrate, and if this isn’t one of those reasons, I don’t know what is.

    We received a subscription renewal notice from a lady last week who for the past 47 years has made sure her son receives a copy of our paper each week.

  • COLUMN: A snipe hunt to remember

    Trash bags, flashlight, full moon and friends, that’s all you need.

    We took these when we went hunting in the middle of the night. It wasn’t funny at the time, but now that it’s over with I’ll tell you the story of my hunting trip, I’m sure it will bring a laugh or two.

  • COLUMN: Still learning life’s lessons

    At 24 and a little over two full years out of college, I still consider myself a student — of life, if nothing else.

    I hope I never stop learning because, as Henry Ford once said, “Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at 20 or 80. Anyone who keeps learning stays young. The greatest thing in life is to keep your mind young.”

    In an effort to keep my mind (and yours) young, I’ll share a few things I’ve learned recently.

  • COLUMN: Still just a small town girl

    Borrowing a line from Kellie Pickler, “I’m a small town girl/And that’s all I’ll ever be/I’m a small town girl/Hey, that’s alright with me.”

    I’m pretty sure Pineville is smaller than Lawrenceburg — my parents think Lawrenceburg feels a lot bigger — but I’ve always said Lawrenceburg feels like home, only without the mountains.

    Still, my point is that I’m also from “a town so small you don’t need a map,” and I wouldn’t want it any other way.

  • COLUMN: Here’s what to do with your bountiful harvest

    Harvest season has begun.

    I picked my first tomatoes and squash last week and my partner farm started picking corn. Heaven on earth!

    There is nothing more delicious than fresh food from the garden, but you can’t eat it all at once. If you’re up to you elbows in peppers or squash, then roll up your sleeves.

    Storing the harvest can take many forms and it really depends on what you want to put up for the winter. Back in the olden days food was preserved in fat or oil, salt, vinegar or an alcoholic beverage.
