Today's Opinions

  • Gardening facts to wile away snowy day

    I was never a straight A student, but I loved to learn and could always be counted on to offer up some strange, fun fact.
    Trivial Pursuit was my favorite game. As we wait out the winter, I thought it would be fun to expand our knowledge into the plant world, along with a few human tidbits, as well.

  • Like it or not, pipeline grants are available

    Column as I see ’em …
    Is it because it’s viewed as blood money?
    That was one response when folks in our office were debating why on earth no public agency in Anderson County has applied for a Bluegrass Pipeline grant.
    I guess the blood money scenario is a possibility, but given the stated state of financial affairs around here, it would seem they’d take money from nearly any source.
    After all, it’s not like they’re taking a one-week loan from Tony Soprano, you know?

  • In Bluegrass Pipeline debate, neither side wants use of eminent domain

    For the past three months, representatives of Bluegrass Pipeline have been meeting in the homes of landowners in 13 Kentucky counties to discuss the project and the prospect of purchasing an easement, which is the right to use a narrow strip of land for installation of the underground pipeline.

  • Schools need additional funding

    To the editor:
    Anderson County’s Helping Hands—Heart of Community wants to raise awareness concerning a critical issue facing the state’s General Assembly.  Our community needs new school funds to match the higher expectations for our educators and students.. Without new funds, our schools will be at a disadvantage in providing children with the quality education they need and deserve.

  • How I feel about January, and a welcome sign follow-up

    A new year brings a new fixation on loss.
    We tell ourselves: yes, this is the year we’ll lose, and we’ll lose triumphantly for the better.  
    Shed those hated pounds, chop off your hair and slough away the stress for a fresh, scrubbed outlook on life.
    This is extremely difficult to do in January.
    No offense to everyone who celebrates birthdays (sorry, Dad and Martin Luther King Jr.), anniversaries or other memorable occasions during the month, but I hate January.

  • Nothing to fear from the helpful, economical pressure cooker

    At the end of a busy day, most of us would love to quickly prepare a tasty, nutritious, home-cooked meal with minimal effort and low cost. One way to accomplish this is to use a pressure cooker. Some of you may have received a new electric pressure cooker as a gift.

  • Answers to questions about vehicle registration, taxes

    Early each year our office receives questions regarding vehicle license and taxes. I hope that the answers provided below will help.
    Why haven’t we mailed your vehicle tax bills?
    First, the cards are not bills, they are just courtesy notices and second, they are mailed by the Department of Revenue.

  • You are what you eat, so learn to eat well

    We’ve all heard the saying “You can’t have one without the other.” It works with everything, you know. All things work in combination. It’s called the Web of Life. Every living thing on this earth is connected through combinations.
