  • LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

    Hoping new fiscal court can fix old one’s ‘dumb’ recycling mistakes

    To the editor:

    This letter is aimed directly at the recycling blunder of the fiscal court.

    But first, let me pull my foot out of my own mouth. I was and still am an open supporter of the recycling project proposed by the fiscal court, and if I said it once I’ll say it a thousand times: recycling will work but only if managed right.

  • Did Grimes even read outdoor column?

    To the editor:

    This is a response to a letter in last week’s paper by Roy Grimes, titled “Outdoor columnist should get facts on elk lottery.”

    My Jan. 7 outdoors column in The Anderson News was three-quarters of a page in length, yet one sentence stirred up Roy Grimes.

  • Outdoor columnist should get facts correct on elk lottery

    To the editor:

    I read your paper almost weekly. I am disturbed by an implication by your outdoor columnist, Jeff Lilly, that the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources’ elk drawings are dishonestly conducted. He refers to “so-called random” elk drawings in his article in last week’s Anderson News.

    Mr. Lily has made these accusations in the past based apparently due to his lack of success in the annual elk drawing.

  • Media, politicians ‘minimize’ criminal acts in Ferguson and Staten Island

    To the editor:

    “There’s always that 10 percent,” said Sergeant King, my senior drill instructor at Parris Island. His reference was to bad behavior.

    Accordingly, imbalance describes media and political reactions to the recent grand jury decisions at Ferguson and Staten Island. Truth, justice, and two criminal acts were minimized, and criticism of the police was maximized.

  • ‘War on coal’ not to blame for higher cost of electricity

    To the editor:

    Electric rate increases headlined in the Dec. 3 edition of The Anderson News said that Kentucky Utilities and Blue Grass Energy attribute the “war on coal” as the basis for their request.

    A spokesperson for Blue Grass Energy says that the “cost of coal going up” is a contributing factor.

    The article quotes a spokeswoman from Kentucky Utilities that gives as an example of this “war,” a $563 million investment in a natural gas generating station.

  • Prefers ‘column as facts dictate’

    To the editor:

    Ben Carlson’s comments in the Nov. 26 edition of the paper on the fiscal court’s decision to install scales need some clarification.

    First, the junk/trash referred to currently goes into a compactor free of charge. The fiscal court (your taxpayer money) then pays, very expensively, I might add) to haul that compactor to the Benson Valley Landfill.

  • EPA, tree huggers to blame for skyrocking electricty rates

    To the editor:

    The Anderson News recently printed the 2015 proposed increases for Kentucky Utility customers. If you still have access to the KU notifications as printed in The Anderson News, I would advise you to peruse those proposed rate increases.

    I read those rates line by line, calculated the results and it immediately raised a red flag which prompted me to call Kentucky Utilities in Louisville to speak to a representative. She was very nice but I did all of the talking and she merely confirmed my suspicions.

  • No need to change judge-executive

    To the editor:

    I urge everyone to vote and re-elect Anderson County Judge-Executive John Wayne Conway.

    Conway has worked tirelessly with all departments making improvements to help better Anderson County.

  • Hellard took me from a broken home, raised me as her own

    To the editor:

    I was about 7-years-old when Marie Hellard got custody of me. I pretty much lived with her most weekends before that. At 7-years-old, you don’t see or understand the reason you got separated from your parents. You don’t know that drugs and things of that nature are bad because you have been raised around it since you were born.

  • Judge Myles called ‘honest, capable’

    To the editor:

    I am writing in support of Judge John David Myles for Family Court. He is honest, capable and experienced.

    As one of the original Family Court judges when it was a project, I hoped that the vision we had of a Court for Families would continue.

    John David Myles is an example of the best in the role of Family Court judge.
