Letters

  • Jesus, Republican Party aren’t coming back

    To the editor:
    On March 20, 2003, the US and its allies began the “shock and awe “ air strikes over Baghdad, Iraq.
    Those watching the event through the media sat amazed while the voices and faces of those even remotely connected to the apocalyptic deluge mirrored, well, shock and awe.

  • Thankful for guardian angels

    To the editor:
    With just celebrating Thanksgiving I felt as if now was the time to share a part of what our family had to be thankful for: protecting angels.
    On Oct. 29, our sister, Linda Hardin, fell in front of the Dollar Store off Broadway.
    One shoe flew off, her hands were scuffed and her knees sore when embarrassment set in. All of a sudden she heard the voices of angels.

  • Herndon an example of why Republicans lost

    To the editor:
    Sports editor John Herndon’s recent column (for the most part it resembles the recent Republican platform wrapped in biblical quotes) is a prime example as to why the Republicans experienced a resounding national defeat, and why religion should never be part of the publicly funded education system or the government.
    If being a Christian is defined by supporting the extreme right wing policies of intolerance, sexism and racism, Buddhism looks pretty good to me.

  • Carlson’s column a true ‘toxic haze’

    To the editor:
    I take exception to Ben Carlson’s column last week regarding mandatory trash pick up. It does not appear to me that Ben Carlson should use The Anderson News to promote his own personal agenda.
    It is a public newspaper and should report the news.
    Ben Carlson gave his opinion previously in his article. Then David Steedly gave a rebuttal. But Mr. Carlson feels the need to contradict Steedly’s letter solely because he is the editor and feels he has the right to do so.

  • T.O.U.C.H. offers programs for Anderson County community

    To the editor:
    T.O.U.C.H. (Treasuring Our Underprivileged Citizens with Heart) is a new non-profit organization that responds to safety and hazard concerns dealing with the elderly and disadvantaged in Kentucky.
    T.O.U.C.H. volunteers provide materials and do repair and preventative work on residences.

    Three other programs are offered under the T.O.U.C.H. umbrella:

  • Bargains galore at Giant Rummage Sale

    To the editor:
    I love the fall, the crisp, cool mornings, the twinkling of the frost on the fields, and the vibrant colors as the leaves turn on the trees. I also love the holiday season and the opportunities to get together with friends and family, which makes me think about how thankful I am for the many good things and good people in my life.

  • Trick-or-treater learned lesson about USA

    This letter is in response to 11-year-old Adam Steele’s Nov. 7 letter to the editor regarding dressing up as Gov. Mitt Romney for Halloween.

    To the editor:
    Dear Adam, I am glad you shared this unforgettable Halloween experience with us. I hope you choose to never forget what a divided nation looks like, and you just saw a tiny piece of it.
    We no longer are the United States, far from it. It is sad, Adam. I hope that you never forget what freedom stands for and think ahead to your future, along with other young people like yourself.

  • T.O.U.C.H. to collect relief donations

    To the editor:
    T.O.U.C.H. received the following post on our Facebook page. Bill Beuckman is a member of the organization. His family of firefighters was hit hard by Sandy. We are working with him trying to collect donations for those hit by this superstorm.
    Here is the post that came to our Facebook page:
    “Firefighter Bill Beuckman (JERSEY) and Firefighter Lance Beuckman (JJ) on Boone Trail Emergency Services has family on Long Beach Island, N.J., which was one of the hardest hit areas in NJ.

  • King’s road to victory not an easy one

    To the editor:
    Last Tuesday, Kim King was overwhelmingly re-elected to represent Anderson County in the Kentucky House of Representatives. She was able to do this with many powerful entities working hard against her. After all was said and done, Kim King not only won her seat district wide, she won Anderson County, even though her opponent Kent Stevens was from Anderson County.

  • 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.
