  • Please return prescription sunglasses

    To the editor:
    This letter is a plea to the person who found a pair of prescription sunglasses in the restroom at Goodwill on Sunday, Sept. 23.
    They belong to a great-grandmother who cannot afford to replace them.
    They were purchased two weeks ago and are really necessary.
    As you can tell they have bifocal lenses and extra-dark tinting because of an eye condition.
    Please return them to the Goodwill store, or drop them in the mailbox at 1013 Bradley Drive.
    It will be greatly appreciated.

  • Why no furlough for city employees?

    To the editor:
    I am a state employee. We have taken furloughs to help with the budget crisis and the recession.
    I am just wondering why can’t our city officials do the same? I know this can’t be possible with law enforcement but why not with other non-emergency staff?
    With no raises given, gas prices on the rise and cost of living increases, the residents of Lawrenceburg can’t afford any more tax increases.
    We need to put this pressure on our city officials.

  • Conway ‘misguided’ as cops play tax collector

    To the editor:
    Judge-Executive John Wayne Conway’s insistence on lowering the speed limit on Versailles Road is misguided.
    The recent accidents there were not caused by speed. They were caused by human error and/or carelessness.
    People drive what they feel is a safe and reasonable speed regardless of the speed limit, and lowering  already artificially low limits only creates another speed trap for police to use to create revenue.
    People are not going to slow down, but they can be made to drive more safely.

  • Conway’s speed limit request ‘ridiculous’

    To the editor:
    There is no doubt that accidents have been a common occurrence along the portion of US 62 between Hilltop Drive and the Kentucky River this year.
    We’ve seen numerous accidents involving cars striking deer, cars striking debris falling off trucks and vehicles striking other vehicles.
    It seems like the road has become significantly more dangerous lately. Unfortunately, some of the accidents along this stretch of road have been fatal this year.

  • Proposed business not compatible with history of Mill Creek Pike area

    To the editor:
    The intent of the agricultural (A-1) zoning district is to preserve, promote and protect the rural character of the land and significant natural features. It is also to promote the general welfare, safety, and lessen traffic congestion for the citizens of Anderson County.

  • A response to Carlson, Hawkins

    To the editor:
    This is in response to a portion of Ben Carlson’s column in last week’s paper, as well as a letter from Darren Hawkins.

  • Questions posed for ECC building sale detractor

    Editor’s note: The following is in response to an article in last week’s paper that included comments on the sale of the old Early Childhood Center by Ed Ruggles.

    To the editor:
    I agree with Mr. Ruggles that it would not be good to have another tax increase of any kind. However, Mr. Ruggles, what would people here in Anderson County who elected the board like to see done with the ECC building?
    Would you like to see it sit empty for few years? Maybe a flea market? Maybe a hangout for teenagers at night to get into trouble?

  • Lower speed, safer drivers needed on dangerous Versailles Road

    To the editor:
    I am writing out of concern for a growing problem in the eastern end of Anderson County.
    Specifically, I am referring to the ever-growing amount of apparent careless driving that is occurring just east of city limits in the stretch Versailles Road that runs between the entrance of Hunter Ridge subdivision through the area near the Wild Turkey Distillery.
    Not too many months ago two lives were lost in a tragic head-on collision near Lock Road. It’s hard to say how many lives were affected by the loss of these two lives.

  • Family Fun Fest organizers say thanks

    To the editor:    
    The Anderson County Family Resource and Youth Service Centers would like to thank all the community partners, school staff and volunteers for their continued support of the Anderson County Family Fun Fest.

  • Celebrate Senior Center month

    To the editor:
    September is national Senior Center Month. This is our opportunity to showcase the Anderson Senior Center and to promote a positive image of aging.
    We will celebrate with the 2012 theme “It happens at my senior center. My life. My time. My way.”
    Our senior center in Anderson County is a gorgeous community center, full of life and fun. Our membership is 400 strong and our volunteer crew numbers more than 200 people, all dedicated to the same mission.
