  • Odorous house ants do more than stink

    Odorous house ants (OHA) are difficult to control. Unfortunately, they are becoming more common in samples sent to the Insect Identification Lab. These small (1/8-inch) dark ants form distinct trails along outdoor and indoor surfaces.

  • City’s shield laid to rest

    One of the most common symbols of law enforcement is the police badge, or shield.

    It is quite possibly the most important piece of an officer’s uniform, the object not only identifies the wearer as a member of law enforcement it also serves as a reminder of their oaths to protect and serve their community.

  • Good stewards of your tax dollars

    To the editor:

  • A budget deficit that never was

    The fiscal court’s decision last Tuesday not to borrow $400,000 to balance its budget laid to rest any doubt that there ever was a budget deficit.

    What I am questioning is why there was ever discussion of a deficit in the first place.

  • Teen programming at library cause for concern

    To the editor:

    We have some very great concerns about the Anderson Public Library’s teen programming.
    As young adults, there are no programs for people our age. We were allowed to partake in the teen programs, however, since several staff changes, the rules have been changed to prevent us from being a part of the teen programs. We were told to join the adult programs, which are far and few in between.
