  • Pipeline: Landowners should think, consult lawyer before granting easement

    By Terry Geoghegan
    and Tom FitzGerald
    Landowners contacted by the Bluegrass Pipeline Partners LLC, the Williams Company or one of their representatives about selling an easement for the construction of a 24-inch pressurized natural gas liquids pipeline across their property rightfully have questions about whether granting such an easement is in their interest.

  • How does school district monitor Internet use of students, teachers?

    You sign your name in blood on the Internet.
    Not literally, because that’d be gross and virtually impossible.
    But no other metaphor, in my opinion, gives the right weight of gravitas when it comes to discussing the permanent nature of representing yourself on the Internet.
    It’s an unconscious blood oath that you sign with the entire online world, that everyone you write and post will exist for infinity.

  • Repo’d property shouldn’t be among top taxpayers

    Column as I see ’em …
    The chart attached to this column is both interesting and sad.
    Interesting in that it shows just how much Wild Turkey currently pays in property taxes after investing over $100 million in our fair county during the past four years.
    What’s sad is the bottom half of the list because it points out just how poorly Anderson County has done in attracting more taxpaying behemoths like Wild Turkey.

  • Liberals trying to ‘convert’ us, our children

    Regarding the ACLU — and those collaborators who work with it to strip Kentucky of its Christian identity — it’s worth remembering that “love your enemies” doesn’t mean “pretend you haven’t any.”
    When liberals let on like they’ll be satisfied if only we agree to their latest “small” and “fair” demand, they are lying. Always.

  • So-called ‘atheist’ letter writer should practice what he preaches

    To the editor:
    I read Mr. Jerry Millburn’s guest column (Hypocrites on school board know they’re wrong) in last week’s paper and would like to share some observations.

  • Moved your iris, lilies and other perennials yet? Better get busy

    One of my most favorite things about the farm is the view that I have at sunset. The air has cooled to a pleasant degree and watching the sun send up its last horrah fills the sky with ribbons of color to rival any masterpiece.
    The dogs love to run and romp in the yard, taking turns to come say hello and get a good scratching. It clears my mind of the day’s events and helps me appreciate all that I have.

  • Time is ripe to put pumpkins, apples to good use

    Pumpkins and apples are at the Anderson County Farmer’s Market now. You can also purchase them directly from several local farms.
    A good carving pumpkin doesn’t usually make a good eating pumpkin. The carving pumpkins are tough and a little bland. Pie or sweet pumpkins are best for cooking and baking, as they have a more tender rind and are less fibrous.

  • October’s here so don’t forget to harvest next year’s seeds

    Happy October. The 10th month is upon us and it’s a very seedy time. It’s all I can do not to trim the faded flowers from the hydrangeas, echinacheas, cup plants and the myriad of other once blooming flowers that grace the farm. They look scraggly, but the birds love them. I got to enjoy the blooms all summer and fall so it’s only fitting that wildlife get to enjoy them now.
