  • COLUMN: Brother’s hunt proves patience pays off

    Patience, how many of us can say we have that trait? Ever heard the saying the best things happen to those who wait? I’m not always the most patient person, especially when I want it done or I’m in a hurry. While you may not be a believer of that saying, every now and then you get a great example of one though.  For me that happened youth hunt weekend with my brother.

  • COLUMN: Sometimes family is all we have

    I’ve learned a lot about family in the past week. It’s probably nothing I haven’t learned before, but some lessons are worth repeating.

    Family may very well be the most important thing in this life since it is the first thing God gives us when we are born. But because some original families don’t live up to their potential, we continue to get opportunities to add to the group we call our family.

  • COLUMN: Get prepared for winter to help save on energy bills

    As the leaves go from green to gold, and the makings for compost blanket the lawn, I have one constant chore, removing sticktights. Walking the farm leaves me covered with the little seeds that attach themselves to almost everything.

    Spanky and Tiller get covered from head to toe causing me to keep the brushes by the back door. I’ve learned to wear nylon. I really believe that some scientist ought to study those little seeds and make them the “new” Velcro of our time.

    Where’s ‘revolt’ over sewer billing?

    To the editor:

    Have any citizens written opinions to The Anderson News about the sewer billing in Lawrenceburg?

    I’m surprised people haven’t begun a revolt.

    We live in Briar Creek and recently had to water quite a bit outside to get new grass to germinate before cold weather (we did have a dry spell in September) and I just received my water bill for the month.

  • COLUMN: Newspapers are still alive

    In the middle of a spirited conversation with my husband about the industry I’ve grown to love so much, I paused, choked back a tear, and said:

    “I mean this in the most loving way possible, but you’re a prime of example of why newspapers are ‘dying.’ “

    I then launched into a laundry list of reasons to back up my thesis statement.

    He never reads this newspaper.

    He doesn’t care what happens locally even though we’ve been Lawrenceburg residents for four months.

    Carey deserves thanks for tractor pull

    To the editor:

    I would like to take a moment to say thanks to Eddie Carey, the local 4-H club, the competitors and everyone else who worked so hard to put on a good truck and tractor pull.

    The crowd was large, very polite and there wasn’t any trouble. It was a good time for all who attended.

    I just hope we can have more of this type of entertainment in the future.

    Keep up the good work, Eddie.

  • COLUMN: Preserve fall decorations for winter treats

    Remember all those rains we’ve been getting this month? Imagine if it was snow.

    One inch of rain is equivalent to 10 inches of snow. Oh boy. So, how much would a whole foot of snow weigh, if it was sitting on the roof right now? Snow weighs in at six pounds per square foot for every 12 inches of snow. Good thing most roofs are built to handle 30 to 40 pounds per square foot. Good tip to know for this coming winter.

  • COLUMN: October provides plenty of reasons to love fall

    I love fall season for many reasons, and this month there are so many things going on. To name a few there’s Halloween, pastor appreciation month, the end of the trimester at high school(finals also), deer season, fall festivals and much more.

    Halloween is a great holiday, especially for the younger kids. Even if we don’t go trick-or-treating we can still work at Autumn Splash, church trunk-or-treats or even just passing out candy for the neighborhood kids.
