Today's Opinions

  • How’s your relationship with money?

    At the end of the month, do you wonder what happened to your money? Are you regularly tempted to spend when you have a few extra dollars in your pocket?

    Spending and savings habits are directly linked to financial stability. Understanding how and where you spend money is important for financial success, especially in tough economic times.

    One important step for managing your household budget is to develop a spending plan for your money. Doesn’t that sound better than “budget?” Use the following steps to develop your family’s plan.

  • Think about it before adopting just one more

    By Jane Sinnett, Guest columnist

    I looked into those amazing eyes, one blue, one white, and was ready to go to the front desk and tell them I wanted that one.

    My heart said yes but my mind said, let’s wait a minute. My mind and heart do battle with each other when it comes to just one more animal.

  • Newspaper doing what it should

    To the editor:

    I meant to write this letter before now.

    I want to welcome Ben Carlson back to the role of publisher/editor of The Anderson News.

    Under his leadership the paper is more than a source of information about local happenings, though that is important enough.

  • LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

    To the editor:

    I would really appreciate it if you all would find a place in your paper to recognize the gentleman who scrapes our road and the other roads in our little part of the world. Jobey Harvey comes during every snow event on his own tractor to scrape our roads. When it snows, we have no doubt that this wonderful man will be coming bright and early to make way for our community to get out with ease.

  • Plotting better ways to water garden

    Just like those giant icicles hanging by the roadside, our chances for another snow this season just keeps getting smaller. If we get any more, the broom, not the shovel, should be able to handle it. Winter is waning.

    The Old Farmer’s Almanac has called for April and May to be warmer and dryer than normal, summer should be hot and dry, and fall warm and wet. Seems like we always have a dry summer after an especially wet winter, so be prepared with your watering options.

  • Imagining our city with nine more bars

    By Ben Carlson

    Column as I see ’em …

    Here’s something I’ll bet you didn’t know.

    Were there enough interest, Lawrenceburg could have nine more bars.

    Yes, you read that correctly. Little old Lawrenceburg, which less than 10 years ago didn’t even allow liquor by the drink, has that many retail drink liquor licenses available should anyone choose to open that many places to drink it.

  • Developers ready for LIFT

    By Hal Goode

    Guest columnist

    Recently, the Kentucky House of Representatives took a big step forward in allowing local communities more control over their own growth and economic development. With overwhelming bipartisan support, the House passed LIFT, or Local Investments for Transformation.  This a bill allowing Kentuckians to decide for themselves if they want to allow local voters to invest in economic development and infrastructure projects in their communities.

  • And the drumbeat for war goes on

    To the editor:

    Warmongers in Congress learned nothing from the well-taught lessons of Vietnam. Remedial lessons were repeated in the Middle East, and they flunked them.

    Erase their failures to learn and ISIS would be one less problem in the world.

    Consequential samplings related to their failures include: Muammar Gaddafi, Libra, shot to death; Saddam Hussein, Iraq, death by hanging; Hosni Mubarak, Egypt, forced resignation.
