Today's Opinions

  • Don’t let the end of another beautiful summer pass you by

    It’s always a surprise to see the end of the month. One week just rolls on into the next and before you know it a new month is here.

    I am in full-bore canning mode and planning mode. I’ve got lots of processing left to do in the kitchen and my brain just keeps going outside to all the possibilities.

  • Plums perfect for desserts, entrees

    It’s almost apple season but I’m not ready for fall yet. This year I’m already thinking about mastering the art of the cider doughnut but not until plum season is over.

  • Carlson’s writing ‘tactful, refreshing’

    To the editor:

    My family moved to Anderson County from Arkansas  

    about a year ago and we are enjoying the community and the local paper (and the weather!).

    Editor Ben Carlson is a talented writer and his tactful way of expressing his opinions is refreshing. I look forward to my future editions of The Anderson News.

  • Are local monument’s days numbered?

    Like it or not, the Confederate soldier statue in front of our glorious old county courthouse is an endangered species.

    Like nearly every social construct or traditional value, monuments to those who fought on the losing end of the Civil War are and will continue to be under withering assault from those who loathe our nation’s founding, and in particular, its founders.

    No pun intended, but those radicals are like patience on a statue, and are relentless in their incremental approach to force the changes they want.

  • Kentucky Music Hall of Fame honors all kinds of music

    It’s almost impossible to measure what impact the state of Kentucky has had on the music industry but the Kentucky Music Hall of Fame and museum is a place that tells the stories of singers, instrumentalists, song writers, and others from the state who have played even a small part in the rich and diverse music heritage the state enjoys.

  • State fair harkens back to days of self-reliance

    It’s state fair time. Growing up, visiting the state fair was a big to-do. My cousins all had animals to show and I used to envy them getting to stay at the fair overnight. I’m sure it was an adventure, but not very comfortable.

    I loved walking through the barns and then watching the shows. That was a lot of responsibility for kids and they did it all, feed, water, bathe, groom, repeat. They did it night after night and won ribbons and money for their hard work. Never mess with a kid who can walk a cow on a leash.

  • The Anderson News proving newspapers still have a pulse

    To the editor:

    I’m a resident of Frankfort and a regular reader of your paper.

    Those who have proclaimed the death of print journalism need to start reading small-town papers. You are maintaining the faint pulse of a sickly body.

    I like your commitment to local stories; it’s a welcome relief from the national coverage.

    Tip O’Neill’s theory that “all politics is local” is spot on. [Editor Ben Carlson’s] style reminds me of Mike Royko, one of my favorite columnists.
