Letters

  • Stevens would be genuine ‘education representative’

    To the editor:
    I am writing this letter to urge people to exercise their right and privilege to vote on Tuesday.
    We need someone who can and will represent all of us in Frankfort. We need someone who knows and can work with Gov. Beshear, Sen. Julian Carroll and the House leadership to help Anderson County.

  • Know the facts of Chandler’s record

    To the editor:
    If you’re voting, please educate yourself. Know the facts … remember, don’t believe everything you hear on TV.
    Over the past few months I have had the opportunity to get to know a man who my parents, my grandparents, and most likely you, would consider to be a true gentleman, deserving of your support and trust. That man is my friend, Ben Chandler. Being raised on a farm, and being taught the importance of hard work, honesty, and integrity, Ben and I immediately shared many similarities in our own lives.

  • Milburn needs clarifications on Old Testament teachings

    To the editor:

  • In defense of Biden’s debate performance

    To the editor:
    After reading Mr. Rue’s “review” of the vice-presidential debate, I quickly searched my Anderson News archives looking for the letter he wrote complaining about Jim Lehr’s moderation of the first Presidential debate, you know, the one where Mr. Lehr let it get out of control, allowed Mr. Romney to break the rules, interrupt, constantly stay off message, and proceed to spew a record breaking amount of lies. But alas, there wasn’t one.

  • Creation didn’t just happen, Mr. Milburn

    To the editor:
    I just completed reading Mr. Jerry W. Milburn II’s letter you printed in the Oct. 17 issue of your paper. Mr. Milburn is a self-avowed atheist — someone who does not believe in God.
    The First Amendment of the Constitution reads: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

  • Unimpressed by Biden’s performance in vice presidential debate

    To the editor:
    Well, I was one of those who stayed up to watch the 2012 vice presidential debate held in Danville, Ky., on Thursday between Congressman Paul Ryan and current vice president, Joe Biden. I have some observations that I would like to share.

  • Messy parking lot ‘embarrassment’ to Lawrenceburg

    To the editor:
    The parking area across from the West Park McDonald’s (on the other side of Lee’s) is an embarrassment to Lawrenceburg.
    The littering that goes on there is terrible. It does get cleaned up and then the next day, after students park there in the morning or after school, it is a mess again.
    I have never seen an area in our town look so bad.
    I am not sure who to direct my concern to so I am starting with the mayor and will contact a few others.   

  • Did you know there are atheists right here in Lawrenceburg?

    To the editor:
    I have lived here for nine years and I wasn’t aware of any other non-believers but myself, until about a year ago, now I’m aware of about 10 of us and that number will soon grow because us godless heathens are having a pizza social this month, right here in this small Kentucky town.
    There is a movement happening that is showing non-believers that it’s ok to come out of hiding; society no longer believes in that part of the Bible that tells Christians to stone us to death. (Deuteronomy 13:6-10)

  • Main Street disappointing for tourists

    To the editor:
    A couple of weeks ago my husband and I had the pleasure of taking a 10-day vacation to Kentucky and Tennessee. We had a great time, by the way, and truly enjoyed seeing your part of the USA.
    As many tourists do, one of our stops was a tour of Wild Turkey. Since we had some time to spend before our tour, we drove to Lawrenceburg for lunch [on Main Street]. We were very impressed with the food, the decor and the owners. I even recommended it to some other tourists.

  • Check the facts before voting

    To the editor:
    It is a fact that you cannot run a household or a business or government without a budget. It is a fact that if you do not, you will be either broke, bankrupt or out of business.
    What would you do if you had shares in a company and the boss or the president of that company said I am not going to change my way of running this business and continue to spend money without regard to the consequences of going broke.
