  • Promote child abuse awareness

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • No evidence of so-called ‘false doctrine’

    To the editor:
    David Lanius stated that Adam’s sins did not separate him (David Lanius) from God in the “Adam’s Sins and Mine” on the Faith page of The Anderson News in the March 13 edition.
    And that though the consequences of Adam’s sins was that sin entered the world, we don’t inherit Adam’s sins (I use the plural only because Mr. Lanius did.) Sin is not sin. I also find it disingenuous that he would use inherited sin rather than imputed sin.

  • Time to ‘fumigate’ government of lying politicians on both sides

    To the editor:
    The evolution of politicians to public liars is the only real threat to America.
    Al-Qaeda and the other manufactured threats that keep our tax dollars flowing to the “military industrial complex” are strictly kindergarten compared to our politicians. Nowadays, they even dramatize their lies with props.

  • Residents give road crews ‘high five’

    To the editor:
    Our family would like to extend to the streets and roads crews a well overdue thank you to all of the workers who keep our roads safe and clear of ice and snow.
    Although we haven’t had much this winter, it is always a comfort to see a snow plow going up the road after bad weather.
    Although we live in the county, we believe the city streets are done just the same.
    These workers don’t get the thanks they deserve, but we want them to know how much their work means to us.
    God bless, and keep up the great work.

  • Scrapper offers recycling advice

    To the editor:
    What happened to the recycling idea? We haven’t heard anything about it lately.
    I hope the fiscal court and Judge-Executive John Wayne Conway stick to their guns on this project because I think it is a good idea. All it needs is some of the rough edges worked off of it.
    Instead of fussing and cussing our elected officials, we need to look at and study the projects they come up with and, when they come up with a good project like this, we need to support them in any way we can.
    That, in my view, is what makes things work.

  • Cotillions breed self-righteous arrogance, not needed empathy

    To the editor:
    I was repulsed, if not surprised, to learn of the recent founding of the Lawrenceburg Junior Cotillion. The establishment of the Junior Cotillion presents a fine example of the perpetuation of archaic mentalities that have left the South falling behind the rest of the country for the past century.
    The history of the cotillion is a nauseating one, marked most notably by the desire of the Southern elite to flaunt their wealth and by the tradition of objectifying women and teaching them how to “behave.”

  • Honesty, common sense needed in politicians

    To the editor:
    The Senate hearing on Benghazi was a microcosm of the gross ineptness that has led America to the brink of moral and financial ruin. Democrats and Republicans alike showed little real interest in unveiling the truth.
