Carlson unfairly criticized over dentist’s two DUIs
To the editor:
My family and I have received on many occasions excellent care from Dr. Dahlen.
My family and I, along with others, have watched with interest our local paper’s coverage of Dr. Dahlen’s problems with the law that endangered other citizens’ lives.
I personally feel that [general manager] Ben Carlson has been unfairly criticized for reporting, on the front page, the news about a “person of trust,” a person whose medical practice invites and involves our trust in his judgment and state of mind while administering procedures that impact his patients in important and sometimes life-endangering procedures.
I believe Mr. Carlson had the best intentions in mind in reporting these incidents.
Many (most, if not all) obviously believe otherwise.
So it goes for the intrepid reporter.
Relay offers hearty thanks to city, Post 34
To the editor:
The Anderson County Relay for Life Committee would like to express a public thank you to Mayor Edwinna Baker, the city of Lawrenceburg and American Legion Post No. 34 for their enormous show of support for our Relay for Life event that was held at the city park on July 17.
As always, the park was aesthetically beautiful and in fantastic shape, and the city employees were there throughout the night and assisted us with any and all requests.
We couldn’t have asked for a lovelier location and a more accommodating staff.
The executive director of the American Cancer Society was in attendance and made the comment that our park was the nicest venue of any event that she has attended — once again, a direct result of the efforts of the Legion members, the city and its employees.
As a community, we should all extend a hearty thank you to Legion members for providing us with this first-class facility and for allowing us to use it for the many events held there.
As we conclude our 2009 Relay and begin preparations for a bigger and better 2010 event, we ask that all citizens of Lawrenceburg and Anderson County join with us in our efforts to eradicate this heinous disease.
It is our fervent hope that with your financial support, we can fund more research in hopes of finding a cure for cancer in the very near future.
If we work as one, we believe this will happen.
Again, we applaud the city, Post No. 34 and the entire community of Lawrenceburg and Anderson County for your continued support of this worthwhile cause.
Derek Ruble, chairman,
Anderson County Relay for Life Committe
