Today's Opinions

  • Pipeline opponents resorting to fear tactics

    To the editor:
    I’m quite tired of all the hysteria surrounding the Bluegrass Pipeline.
    Neighboring states like Ohio are participating in the next American energy revolution and actually celebrating new tax revenue from the transport of natural gas and its byproducts coming from the Utica and Marcellus shale. For once, we are overtaking radical regimes as top producers of energy.

  • Bluegrass Pipeline not a done deal

    To the editor:
    Many Anderson county residents have heard about the [proposed] Bluegrass natural gas liquids pipeline.  Locally, there have been community meetings where residents have voiced various concerns, dozens of articles in various newspapers across the state, and 10 counties passing resolutions against the project.
    Landowners, residents and lawmakers have joined together across the Bluegrass to protect their land and their communities.   

  • Losing to Taylorsville simply cannot stand

    Editor’s note: Should any of our friends in Taylorsville happen to read this column, please understand it’s all in good fun and for a good cause. The people of Taylorsville, its high school teams and politicians are all perfectly fine. However, if you have a limited sense of humor, please find something else to read. If not, just know you’ve been warned.

    Remember Shannon Brock? She was a staff writer and former news editor here before being promoted to editor at the Spencer Magnet in Taylorsville.

  • Humane Society’s annual rummage sale is Saturday

    We’ve all had some life-changing event. My most memorable one was in high school when I went into the bank and said, “What do you mean I have no money, I still have checks left.”
    Sad, but true. I had another just last week, as I was researching what to write about a Humane Society article. Dogs can’t see! Well, not like I thought they could.

  • Avoid packing on additional holiday pounds

    The holiday season is full of wonderful tasty food that tends to add pounds to those who overindulge. The Weight Management for the Holidays program can help you avoid packing on the pounds as you enjoy the holidays with family, friends and coworkers.  

  • Adopt a senior pet in November

    To the editor:
    November is senior pet month. Why not think about giving an older dog or cat a home? There are many advantages to adopting a senior companion animal.

  • Obama’s blunder is destroying America

    To the editor:
    As Americans we toil daily to provide for ourselves and for our family … ah, the pursuit of happiness for many.
    Some of us may be less fortunate or challenged to work for a wage so we seek outreach from other entities.  

  • School district should live within its means

    We’re hoping that the Anderson County Board of Education already knew it had spent $660,000 more than it took in during the 2012-13 budget.
    We doubt it, though, and are fairly certain it took an auditor to let board members know.
    If the board knew it was spending so far beyond its income level, why didn’t that problem come up even once earlier this year when board members discussed the district’s budget?
