To the editor:
I just had to write and let everyone know about my recent visit to town.
As a former Anderson Countian, I was pleased to find friendly people still living there in Lawrenceburg. I ate lunch at a Main Street café — like found in New York City — and was offered a free dessert for waiting for my food.
I hadn’t realized I had waited and I was enjoying the atmosphere and staring at the delicious desserts.
At the local bank I was warmly greeted and a recently paved street brought me into town.
Good things are still happening on Main Street despite “Nero’s Fiddling.”
There’s hope as the spirit is still alive.
Good leaders are in office but can’t do it alone — your support is needed.
I encourage individual and group participation to keep things moving forward in Lawrenceburg and Anderson County.
It’s worth the struggle.
Come visit Main Street in Springfield in neighboring Washington County. It is like a phoenix rising from the ashes.
Main Street in Bardstown, Nelson County, has revived itself and was recently awarded “Most Beautiful Small Town in America.”
Springfield was named “Best Little Town to Get Lost In” last summer by the Herald-Leader newspaper.
These stories are very encouraging to hear and read about. I can remember when Main Street was the heart of town. Where is it now?
