  • Tell officials to support recycling building

    To the editor:
    On behalf of the Anderson County Environmental Community, I would like to provide some factual information to clear up the editorial from Nov.7, “Tell magistrates to protect Earth and your wallet.”
    Last spring, the committee, with support and approval from both the county and city, applied for and received a $125,000 grant to purchase equipment to improve Anderson’s recycling program.  

  • War is never the right answer

    To the editor:
    A world in peace is something that some of us cannot imagine. I know that as long as I can remember there has been war in some part of the world that affected me in some way.
    How can we establish a lasting peace you may ask? Some may say by raging more wars to gain the advantage over other countries. This is the wrong answer. War only creates more war.

  • Hospice an integral community resource

    To the editor:
    My mother was very ill with heart failure and in the hospital. She wanted to go home. Her doctor said she could with Hospice care. This was the first I had heard of Hospice.
    Their efficiency (combined with sensitivity and compassion) was so welcome at a confusing time in my family’s life. Hospice care combined the highest level of quality care with emotional and spiritual support.

  • Sheriff thanks community for Trick or Treat success

    To the editor:
    On behalf of everyone involved, I would like to thank all those involved for making Trick or Treat on Main a huge success.  
    Combining DARE Project Safe Street with the City’s Treat or Treat on the Green along with businesses and churches got us the result we wanted, the best Halloween event ever.   

  • Christian Academy coverage appreciated

    To the editor:
    On behalf of the Christian Academy of Lawrenceburg, thank you for the great coverage of the open house and dedication of our new school this past week.
    We are blessed to live in a community where our hometown newspaper supports folks who are working to make a positive difference in our “friendly, growing” piece of small town America.

  • School board stunners keep coming

    To the editor:
    I did not think I could be more stunned when the school board let the former ECC building and acreage go for $78,100 after the million dollar add on a few years back.
    But then I saw the article that the school board will be renting a portion of it back for $12,000 a year for the regional training center.

  • Democrats ‘mean’ to Romney trick or treater

    To the editor:
    I’m 11 years old and in the sixth grade from Lawrenceburg.
    I dressed up as Mitt Romney for Halloween and went trick or treating.
    About five people refused to give me candy. One old lady yelled at me and told me to get out of her yard.
    I think they were Democrats; they sure were mean.
    When I grow up I’m going to be a Republican, for sure.
    I’m kind of afraid to sign my name because they might come and try to get me.

  • Defending Biden

    To the editor:

  • Thank you for news coverage of nonprofit

    To the editor:
    As a member of the Board of Directors of T.O.U.C.H. (Treasuring Our Underprivileged Citizens with Heart) of Central Kentucky,  I thank the Anderson News and Meaghan Downs for the excellent coverage recently provided for this new charitable organization that is headquartered in Anderson County.
    Although we are small in number right now, the organization has been very busy working to assist people in need of home safety repairs to prevent in-home accidents and to provide weatherization in homes of the elderly.  

  • Depression support group needed in Lawrenceburg

    To the editor:
    I would like to know why Anderson County does not have a depression support group.
    I have had depression for several years and am sure others in our community have it, too. We need a church or somewhere to meet each week for support.
    The closest group I have found is in Lexington. Some of us don’t want to drive that far.
    I feel we need a support group here, not only for myself but others.
    Why can’t some church here step up and start a group for us? It would be greatly appreciated.
