  • School children not only murder victims

    To the editor:
    Pray for the little ones so brutally slaughtered.  Imagine being so young, in a place where you feel secure, are provided for and have no worries.  Suddenly, with no warning and no way to prepare, your life is ended among terror, chaos, blood and pain.
    Why are they doing this? You have no chance to protest or to defend yourself. Someone who doesn’t even know you has decided to kill you.  

  • Working with CASA proves rewarding

    To the editor:
    A few years ago you wrote an article about Court Appointed Special Advocates for Children (CASA), a national nonprofit organization which trains and supports volunteers to serve as advocates for the best interest of children in the foster care and child welfare systems.

  • Carlson’s ‘knee-jerk’ reaction to shootings was in ‘poor taste’

    To the editor:
    Although only two weeks ago I was happy to see someone defend Mr. Carlson’s right to use the editorial column as a platform for his personal views, I think his recent self-styled rant regarding guns was in poor taste; it sounded like a hastily written knee-jerk reaction from the NRA rather than a sympathetic expression of a compassionate human being in the company of those dealing with a national tragedy.

  • Assist others mourning losses this holiday season

    To the editor:
    2012 is winding down and across this great land we celebrate the Christmas holiday and prepare to usher in a new year.
    This is a joyous time of year for most of us as we soak up the sights, sounds, and scents of Christmas. The excitement in our children is contagious and the warmth of our families and friends coming together brings joy to our hearts. Many of my most precious memories as a child and adult originated from the splendor of this time of year.

  • Toys for Tots says thanks

    To the editor:
    We wish to extend our gratitude to all the generous people of Lawrenceburg for all of the donations of money and toys to the Toys for Tots program.
    Without your generous donations many children would not have a happy Christmas this year.
    A special thanks to Walmart of Lawrenceburg for allowing us to set up and collect toys.
    God bless to each and every family, and Merry Christmas and happy New Year.

  • Many thanked for help with play

    To the editor:
    I am 44 years old and I have never felt the spirit of Christmas more than directing the show “Yes, Virginia The Musical.”
    I’d like to first start by thanking The Anderson News and you, Mr. Carlson, for giving the cast of Virginia the wonderful newspaper props that you so graciously printed and donated to us.

  • Post office provides human touch

    To the editor:
    I know this is the day of online everything but I just wanted to give a special thanks to our post office.
    Rick at our Lawrenceburg Post Office went far and beyond to help me find a package that I had mailed to my son and somehow had disappeared.
    It was so nice to talk to the human voice of someone who seemed to really care. You can’t get that from a computer. I know the post office is suffering from the world of online and I, for one, will hate it if we lose the human touch.  Thanks again, Rick.

  • Dumping on Wildcat has to stop

    To the editor:
    As a resident of Wildcat Road I am sick and tired of being the dumping ground for the county and now apparently for Woodford County as well.
    Waste dumping has been happening on our beautiful section of gravel road for decades, but it required 1,500 gallons of raw human waste to bring this issue to the attention of County residents at large. A cleanup of our road every few years is not only inadequate but a poor management of tax funds. We want the dumping to stop, now.

  • Don’t do away with constables

    To the editor:
    A recent study commissioned by Kentucky Justice and Public Safety Secretary J. Michael Brown, has perked the issue of constables to the surface again.
    Though in summary it consigns the office to the ash heap of history, Mr. Brown states that he has a main concern.
    It is an office without any mandated training.
    So the question begs itself. Training, why not? This is a no-brainer. A professional needs training. Many constables already have it others receive it through the Kentucky Constable Association.

  • Editor has right to speak, whether you like him or not

    To the editor:
    In response to Pat Bullock’s letter to the editor last week I’d like to point out that the fact that The Anderson News is available to the public doesn’t mean it’s a “public newspaper,” and that Mr. Carlson is violating some community right by expressing his opinion in it.
