Today's Opinions

  • COLUMN: Dear disillusioned student...

    Last week, we received a letter to the editor from “a disillusioned student at ACHS” — those are his or her words, not mine.

    I say his or her because this brief, five-word description is all the identifying information we received.

    Mom responds to coach’s letter

    To the editor:

    This is in response to a letter by Joel Cotton printed in the June 3 edition of The Anderson News. The headline was “Little League parents need to be realistic.”

    I am the overzealous, aggressive mother with the arrogance and deranged sense of self Mr. Cotton wrote about.

    He has no right to call me or anyone these things. This is a man who calls himself a good coach. That he is not. He should get his facts together before he lashes out at me through the paper.

  • EDITORIAL: Revisions needed for protection orders

    Let’s be clear about one thing here: the blame for the death of the 21-month-old child who was shot by his father last month rests solely with the man who pulled the trigger before killing himself.

    That was a tragedy of epic proportions for the family, and our hearts go out to each and every one of them.

    Left behind are myriad questions, including why the child was removed from his mother’s custody.

  • COLUMN: New columnist offers teenager’s view of Anderson County’s issues

    Welcome to the teen portion of The Anderson News.

    Thank you for taking the time to read this. It’s something you will enjoy and something aside from what most of you would say is boring news you don’t care about.

    For this first column I’m going to introduce myself and tell you how I got this opportunity.

    My name is Brooke Tindall. I am a teenager who lives in the country part of Anderson County. I am a member of Freedom Baptist Church and love going to church and being a Christian.

  • COLUMN: Home-buying tips for my neighbors

    Five minutes.

    It only took five minutes to drive to work on Monday morning, and I don’t imagine it will differ much from here on out.

    Do you know how fabulous that is?

    That’s right, neighbors. I’m an official Lawrenceburgian…umm, Lawrenceburgite…hmm, we’ll just go with my personal favorite — Lawrenceburger.

    As of last Friday afternoon, my husband and I no longer live in Lexington, and I no longer have to drive 40 minutes or so to work every day. It’s amazing.

  • COLUMN: Spray garden good, restaurant tax bad

    Boy, offer to spend $90,000 for something to at least cool off the natives and what does the city council get in return? A bucket of cold water.

    That sort of reaction doesn’t come as a surprise from residents who are sick of being told one thing, only to get no-thing.

    Spray garden? Taxpayers hosed again

    To the editor:

    The city of Lawrenceburg is proposing a “spray garden” so children will have a place to cool off on hot summer days.

    While I applaud some members of the Lawrenceburg City Council for looking to improve recreation options for the children of Lawrenceburg, is a spray garden the best way to spend $90,000 of taxpayer money? Why not build something that residents of all ages will likely use, like a swimming pool?

    Pit bull hysteria a witch hunt

    To the editor:

    This letter is to the men and women who are taxpaying voters in Anderson County who own and love their dogs, not just pit bulls but all breeds.

    In the past few weeks The Anderson News has been bombarded by letters and phone calls pertaining to the latest incidents of pit bull terriers and their owners.

    There are so many answers we face in dealing with this touchy situation of fairness and dog ownership, not only in Kentucky but in the United States.
