    To the editor:

    Closing [Francis Recycling] is a very bad idea for many reasons.

    The number one reason is that recycling is not only a business, it is also a service to the people, a service that keeps a world of old scrap autos, appliances, wire, farm machinery and much more out of our landsides and waterways.

    For years people had nowhere to take their scrap metal and autos and if they did, they had to pay to get rid of them.

    As Election Day approaches, it is important to remember that the General Assembly will once again consider a constitutional amendment to allow local governments to add a 1 percent local sales tax.

    You would pay a 7 percent tax instead of the current 6 percent. It will negatively impact Kentucky businesses, consumers and the economy of Kentucky.

    Lovers Leap Vineyard and Winery is one of the most beautiful and largest in Kentucky and it’s located right here in Lawrenceburg.

    Thousands of cars travel Lanes Mill Road every year to go there.

    Until recently the grass on the road was 10-feet tall, and it was very dangerous to even drive down the road.

    On Oct. 1, George “Zeke” Inman Jr., 92, will fly to Washington, D.C., along with other veterans from the Bluegrass Area for a whirlwind tour of monuments commemorating the armed services.

    Dad read with great delight about Earnest “Pete” Cox and his recent trip on the Honor Flight that took place on Aug. 27. He had The Anderson News open for me to read the article when I arrived on the evening that he had received the paper.

    Thanks will never be enough for the community support I received for my retirement. All the texts, emails, cards and calls meant so much.

    For the first time in several years I don’t have to sleep with the phone beside my ear all night. Lawrenceburg has always been our home and will continue as I look forward to being more involved as a down-town business.

    The Anderson County Family Resource and Youth Service Centers would like to thank all the community partners, school staff and

    volunteers for their continued support of the Anderson County Family Fun Fest.

    This year proved to be another success. We handed out close to 1,000 backpacks and supplies to local students in grades preschool through 12th grade.

    We also had more than 60 vendors who participated by distributing information about local businesses, agencies, and activities.

    Sargent has been a member of CWA for years and has consistently given of himself to help improve the conditions of those around him. We have endorsed

    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.

    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.

    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.
