  • Return to true meaning of Mother’s Day

    To the editor:
    With Mother’s Day around the corner I, like most mothers, are excited about this special day.
    Whether that means a day of pampering without the kids, or a day full of exciting family activities and sweet cards, it’s a nice feeling to have a day just for us.  

  • Senior citizens need our help

    To the editor:
    Several weeks ago I was approached by an agency to serve on a committee.
    I have been approached by several others in the past, and have normally agreed to do so, but this one was different. I agreed immediately because this one is very special to me.

  • Let’s unite in prayer May 2

    To the editor:
    Christians of Anderson County,
    Evil is present in our nation. Just watch the evening news … murders, robberies and terrorism.
    Last year on May 3, Christians all across our nation gathered to pray for God to forgive us and to intercede on behalf of people in our nation.
    Then in our nation:
    On July 20, 2012, evil came to Aurora, Colo. Twelve were killed in a movie theater and 58 were injured.

  • Setting record straight on Kentucky Blood Center

    To the editor:
    I would like to respond to your April 17 column about blood donation in Anderson County.
    While we applaud your support and encouragement of blood donation, we want to make sure you have all the facts and understand the important role Kentucky Blood Center (KBC) plays in the healthcare of our community.
    Since 1998, my wife and I have coordinated the Anderson County Community Blood Drive at First Baptist Church with KBC. This blood drive has provided a convenient opportunity for Anderson County citizens to donate blood.

  • Tuggers tired of fiscal court’s accusations, half stories

    To the editor:
    For 10 years I have been coordinating Truck Tug of Wars at the Anderson County Community Park with the Kentucky Truck Tuggers.  In those 10 years, I am proud to say that our events have helped a lot of people and organizations.
    We have tugged for the David and Christopher Cole playground fund (at the park). We have tugged for individuals and families in our community who were suffering from major illnesses or deaths – Brianna Borwig, Ryleigh McKinney, Cody Ramsey.

  • Believers in creation against teaching evolution

    To the editor:
    We read of interest in last week’s Anderson News the article about teaching evolution in our school system.
    God created everything!
    We believe in the creation as recorded in the Bible. We are members of Christ’s church at Glensboro and we feel that God’s people have sat by idle far too long. We allowed God to be taken out of our schools, courts and homes and it is time for God’s people to stand up for what they believe in.

  • Promote child abuse awareness

    To the editor:

  • Public library operates well, deserves community support

    To the editor:
    I think our library, and the other libraries in Kentucky, do an outstanding job.
    Joining with other libraries in the area, we have access to most any information we may need. And, the price is very low.
    Perhaps you disagree with the method of taxation, with the amount, and certainly with retention of reserves. But the library does operate well, serves a need in the community and deserves our support. I hope you visit the library often to observe the operation and the number of patrons served.

  • Ronnie Allen Dennis, 51

    Ronnie Allen Dennis, 51, of Salvisa died March 25, 2013 at his residence.  He was raised by his grandparents the late Andrew Earl and Pearl C. Rogers.
    Ronnie was an avid gardener and enjoyed movies and spending time with his grandchildren. He was a graduate of Western High School and formerly worked as an ATM balancer for Farmer’s Bank in Frankfort.

  • Future state workers better think twice before taking job

    To the editor:
    Pension problem solved?
    Not by a long shot, the revised Senate Bill 2 did soften the language on cost of living adjustments, taking it from no cost of living adjustment ever to if surplus funds are available.
    That means if assets are above 100 percent of the actuarial liabilities, cost of living adjustments could return. This actually means no cost of living adjustments ever again, in nicer words.
