  • Letter to the Editor

    To the editor:

    I would like to publicly thank and commend Det. Jeremy Cornish of the Lawrenceburg Police Department.

    Very recently I was given cause to rely upon this law enforcement agency to recover property stolen from me. Had it not been for their diligence, I would have never seen my items again nor would justice have prevailed.

    I cannot begin to express the gratitude I have toward the Lawrenceburg Police Department and Det. Cornish.

    To the editor:

    We love Lawrenceburg!

    We just hosted the 13th Annual Model T Speedster Tour there this past week and we have been blown away. Everybody that we worked with went out of their way to help us.

    Troy Young did a great job taking pictures of our speedsters at the Healing Field. What a beautiful setting!

    Thank you to the Anderson Board of Education for its help with parking.

  • Letter to the Editor

    To the editor:

    On May 13 the Department of Justice and Department of Education released a joint statement that they have reinterpreted (and will enforce) Title IX, a 1972 statute written to prohibit sex discrimination, as also prohibiting discrimination on the basis of gender identity, including discrimination based on a student’s transgender status.

    For example, if a boy claims to identify as a girl, then he must be treated as a girl by an educational institution. The joint statement gives opposite-sex access to restrooms, locker rooms, showers, etc.

    To the editor:

    I recently completed a major community service project for my Eagle Scout rank. This project required the donation of many materials. I would like to express my gratitude and amazement at the local businesses in this community. They were very willing to help with what they could and asked very little of me in exchange. They fulfilled the needs of the project with little to no hesitation. I simply asked and they gave.

    One of the businesses even delivered the materials I needed with only a couple days’ notice.

    To the editor:

    Before everyone gets their knickers in a twist about the president’s executive order to allow transgender students to use the restroom of their choice, we should look at the human side of the issue.

    I am not gay and I’m comfortable with my biological sex, but I have several gay friends and one or two who have powerful urges to express the side of themselves that is not represented by their genitals.

  • Letter to the Editor

    To the editor:

    I’m writing this letter concerning items taken from my husband’s grave at the Lawrenceburg Cecmetery.

    In five years, I’ve had four items taken — a saddlestone, two Styrofoam ball arrangements and a toy John Deere tractor.

    This year, my sister Valerie Taylor; Fay Banks who works in crafts; and I made Styrofoam arrangements, of purple and lavender flowers, beads, foliage and net silver ribbon. Fay made the remark that someone would take it because it was really pretty.

    To the editor:

    With this being a week to honor police officers, I would just like to write this letter to honor Chief Chris Atkins [of the Lawrenceburg Police Department] and his wonderful staff.

    I recently lost my daughter, Kristel Case Combs, and the compassion shown me by Chief Atkins was amazing.

    Please know that my heart was touched by the many ways you assisted Shelby, Ronda and I.

    Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

    God bless all of the officers that protect and serve.

    Congressman ‘is really one of us’

    To the editor:

    Congressman Andy Barr continues to impress. Not only is he one of the nicest fellows you’d ever want to meet, but he’s been working very hard both in Washington and here at home.

    I’ve seen him at event after event, always making time to listen to the folks. He was even along the route of the St

    Patrick’s Day Parade in Lexington! Andy is really one of us.

  • Join in for National Day of Prayer

    To the editor:

    I was born in 1961. I just turned 55 last week. Twenty-six years ago, God placed a huge conviction in my heart that as a community in the United States of America, we Anderson County Christian citizens need to come together in one accord and pray to our creator.

    Every year when it is once again the first Thursday in May, the date set on our national calendar to pray as a nation for our great nation, and the day in which I set out to write a letter to the community to encourage our Christians in Anderson County to pray.

    Auxiliary honors military children

    To the editor:

    The American Legion Auxiliary Anderson Unit 34 and Kentucky National Guard held the Military Child Appreciation Day April 16 at Post 34 in Lawrenceburg.

    A helicopter sat down on the Legion grounds for everyone to view the inside.

    Most activities were set up outside because of the beautiful weather. Each child received a backpack as they entered the gates and proceeded to each table to take the items they liked.
