• Christensen worked to restore old Glensboro schoolhouse


    To the editor:

    I have wondered what will become of Glensboro School. I am a friend of Marcella Rose Christensen and Mike Christensen, the widow and brother of Wade Christensen and neighbors of mine in Anderson County. This is from the obituary Marcie wrote when Wade died in June 2003:

  • Running back deserved better

    To the editor:

    Covington Catholic just witnessed the fastest player on the field. They were probably asking themselves how our coaching staff could have left this talent on the shelf for pretty much an entire playoff game.

    After Bearcat fans stopped cheering for team captain and senior running back Ryan Martin, who took another busted off-tackle play call from coach Peach and scorched it to the corner of the end zone for the final touchdown of his high school career, all you could hear in the stadium were crickets, yep, crickets.

  • Trump would be terrific as president

    To the editor:

    Donald Trump was correct when he refuted Jeb Bush’s retort that his brother, George W. Bush, “kept us safe.” The Twin Towers fell during the Bush administration, and he and Congress let Osama Bin Laden lure them into a bad, bad deal.

  • Stringtown Ruritan’s gift will aid local grads for years

    Recently the Anderson County Scholarship Fund received a contribution from The Stringtown Ruritan Club for $201,166.54.

    According to club president Donald Bottoms, the Stringtown Ruritan Club had voted, several years ago, to contribute all of its assets to the Anderson County Scholarship Fund when the club disbanded. This contribution was made pursuant to that decision.

    To the members, past members, and families of members and former members of the Stringtown Ruritan Club, please accept my appreciation for this generous contribution.

  • Don’t forget to vote Nov. 3

    To the editor:

    Hundreds of thousands of young Americans are serving our military to preserve our way of life, and yet fewer and fewer of our citizens are participating in our democracy.

    November 3 is general election day when Kentuckians will select candidates for governor, commissioner of agriculture and other offices Members of Anderson County Farm Bureau hope every voter will make their voices heard by casting informed votes.

  • Sheriff’s office earns kudos

    To the editor:

    I would like to send congratulations to Sheriff Troy Young and his deputies for receiving their accreditation.

    I know how hard they worked to achieve this high standard of the policies and procedures practiced by the Anderson County Sheriff’s Office.

    The citizens, community and county should be proud of this goal, which is not easily handed out to law enforcement agencies.

    Kentucky sheriffs must rise to a higher standard for recognition to be awarded the accreditation certificate.  

  • War on police is not OK

    To the editor:

    I usually do not to get in here and rant and rave or stand up on a soapbox and preach, but things are happing in this country that are hitting too close to home for me not to say something.

    As of today my fellow brothers in blue and this nation have lost 83 real heroes, not someone who people call hero because he plays sports, someone that sings songs or someone embracing there identity and doing so in a public way to help move forward a constructive dialogue about progress and acceptance.

  • Briscoe thankful for community support

    To the editor:

    Thank you for the unbelievable amount of support I have received since the situation at the home opening football game.

    The letters, calls, stop-ins and conversations have truly been overwhelming and appreciated. There are others who deserve our thanks for all that they and their families have done over the years. These include pillars of our community: Doc Wash, Tracy Briscoe and Angie Smith, along with Dr. Joe Dobner and all the ATCs who have volunteered their services.

  • Consider Pierian Spring in new library design

    To the editor:

    Although I live far away now, I hope that as a native of Lawrenceburg and eighth generation in the state you might indulge the perspective that I may offer folks.

    With the coming improvements to the internet-age-library which, seems more concerned for socialization than lucubration, I hope some readers might recall that the little building shoved to one side of the modern edifice is the original Pierian Club House.

  • Debate moderators squandered opportunity

    To the editor:

    The three moderators of the prime-time presidential debate achieved only half of what they set out to do, i.e. “hog the spotlight and disparage Donald Trump.”

    They hogged the spotlight. The time they spent asking questions exceeded the response time allotted to candidates.
