Today's Opinions

  • Come pray for America this Thursday at the Courthouse

    To Christians of Anderson County:

    “Jesus answered and said to them, When it is evening you say, It will be fair weather, for the sky is red; and in the morning, It will be foul weather today, for the sky is red and threatening. Hypocrites! You know how to discern the face of the sky, but cannot discern the signs of the times.” (Matthew 16:2-3)

    Do you have any doubt that we are living in perilous times?

  • On Extension, UK giving us the shaft

    Column as I see ’em …

    I wasn’t aware until recently that the University of Kentucky is going broke.

    Please forgive my ignorance because while I don’t venture into the city very often, it would appear when I do that the state’s namesake university is humming along nicely. Not only does the construction of new buildings and such go on in perpetuity, the school certainly isn’t shy about hefty tuition increases each and every year.

  • Cattle ear tags help with fly reduction

    Cattle receiving insecticide-impregnated ear tags take their fly control system with them. Ear tags have provided a popular option to control the horn fly, a blood-sucking insect that hits producers with a $1 billion bill for losses and control costs each year. In addition, the tags can reduce face fly numbers on cattle.

  • How to turn your brown thumb green

    In the fall I call it peeping; in the spring I call it leaving. The ornery kid in me really wanted to start this paragraph with “I’m leaving”, but thought better of it.

    Actually, I’m just really enjoying watching the trees get their leaves on.

  • Many uses for healthy avocados

    Avocados aren’t just for guacamole.

    I’ve seen avocado ice cream, brownies and muffins, avocado-walnut pesto, avocado dips and even avocado soup.

    Avocados are a very unique fruit. They contain lots of fiber and are rich in vitamins and minerals, such as B-vitamins, vitamin K, potassium, copper, vitamin E and vitamin C. They have more potassium than bananas. Eating avocados has been linked with various health benefits, such as decreased risk of cardiovascular disease and arthritis.

  • Help support Challenger League

    To the editor:

    Anderson County Little League is dedicated to building character, courage and loyalty in our local area youth by providing a fun, safe and competitive baseball program.

    We are proud to be one of few programs within the state that offer a Challenger Baseball Division for children with special needs.

    This is the ninth year of Challenger League Baseball in Anderson County, and we have been grateful for the community support over the past few years.

  • We may never know why Crouch was fired

    Column as I see ’em …

    The reaction to last week’s front page story about the firing of former Lawrenceburg police officer Clay Crouch was remarkable.

    The paper’s Facebook friends — and more than a few apparent enemies — piled on shortly after the story broke. Most were outraged that the city would fire such a popular officer. Others jumped for joy, including more than a few of whom I suspect were at some point on the receiving end of a pair of Crouch’s handcuffs.

  • Grow your way to better health

    Let’s hear it for a fountain of youth. Old gardeners never die, they just spade away.

    I have a pillow that has that saying, given to me by an anonymous friend years ago. I love that pillow. I also have a T-shirt that says “Hanging on by the seed of my plants.” Notice a theme here?
