  • Obama golfs, attends weddings, fundraisers while ISIS crisis sizzles

    To the editor:

    Soon, we as registered voters will be casting our ballots for political appointments, I would ask that you consider something.

    The current Obama administration has proven to you that there is no leadership and the president proclaims to the world that … “I must consult congress because currently we have no strategy to combat ISIS (ISIL).”  While international terror confronts the minds of many, Obama is able to plan his fundraisers, weddings and other social events, including golf daily.

  • City building inspector cares about getting homeowners to clean up their act

    Tom Bond, a representative from the mayor’s office, contacted me yesterday concerning a grievance I had with people who infringe on other people who truly care for their property.

    We talked yesterday, he replaced Jim Grider and Jim always seemed to take my grievance with a grain of salt.

    Not Tom Bond, he is out and about insuring our town is getting cleaned up one yard at a time.

  • City provides little incentive for homeowners to clean up their act

    Our mayor’s office and its' officers do an extremely poor job encouraging  

    homeowners to keep their properties uncluttered.

    Many homes in many subdivisions are eyesores in this bedroom community.  

    Property is consistently devalued due to elected officials poor executions of their sworn duties.

    Respectable homeowners who take pride in their properties have to live around other people who seem to take pleasure in trashing their property. It is evident that pride in appearance takes a back seat to trash.

     

  • World Lung Cancer Day is Aug. 1

    Please mark your calendar for Aug. 1, 2014, the 3rd annual World Lung Cancer Day!

    Join in to celebrate, commemorate and support all those affected by the “No. 1 cancer killer.”

    Lung cancer, often referred to as the “Invisible Disease”, is generally asymptomatic and often goes undetected or misdiagnosed, while advancing to a late incurable stage. Only 15 percent of patients diagnosed in the late stages will survive five years.

  • Hamilton got it right: recycling is, indeed, a worthwhile effort

    This is in response to Chris Hamilton’s article about recycling in The Anderson News Extra. I wholeheartedly agree that recycling does not have to produce an income to justify making it a priority.

    I admit that, for most of my life, I did not recycle and it has only become a priority in the last few years. I’m appreciative of the bins that have been placed in the Kroger parking lot. That is very helpful!

    I had been taking my recyclables to Lexington and putting them in the bins at the Good Foods Coop on Southland Drive.

  • ‘Thanks for Nuthin’ cartoon was an offensive spin on an 11-year war

    Last Wednesday’s paper had me steaming. Terry Wise’s cartoon showing Obama saying “Thanks for nuthin” at a military grave was neither funny nor ironic. Political cartoons are supposed to be one or the other or both.

    It is a gross oversimplification to blame Obama for an 11-year war that is more complicated than most Americans understand. And why does Obama say the word “nuthin”? Is there a meaning to this? It’s not very sensitive to people of color.

  • Recycling is on the right track, will continue to grow

    Just a few lines about my thoughts on the Anderson County Recycling Program.

    I have been in favor of it for some time now. I have been in the recycling business for most of my life and I personally know that it can be a very good program economically, environmentally as well as profitable.

    And as I said before, if managed right, it can and will be a very, very good thing for all of Anderson County and her people.

  • Relay is a success because of community support

    I think the following businesses truly get the meaning of community participation because of their contributions to the Relay.

    They are the Anderson County Chamber of Commerce, City of Lawrenceburg, Wild Turkey Trace Golf Course, Edmonson’s Towing, Carey’s Towing, Lawrenceburg Police Department, Schell Septic, Boy Scouts Troop #37, Lawrenceburg Supply, Anderson County EMS, Emma B Ward, Bluegrass Signs and The Anderson News for donating services to Relay for Life.

    Without volunteerism, Relay for Life could not be as successful.

  • It takes a team to pull off an election

    I want to take explain the involved process and people it takes to help make the Primary Election go as smooth as possible.

    The election process never stops in our office. The deputies continually work to ensure that everything is ready for Election Day. The staff works daily to process voter registration information.
