  • 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.

  • Skeptical about spraying branches

    To the editor:
    The article in last week’s paper about spraying branches along the roadways seems bizarre.
    I think the Anderson County Fiscal Court needs to get the advice of a certified arborist and references.
    I can’t imagine a chemical that kills branches, but doesn’t effect the tree.
    Cutting the limbs back to the tree would last for more than the three years that they are guaranteeing.
    What about the overspray onto private property?

  • Put marijuana to work in Kentucky

    To the editor:
    There are two bills coming up in January for our representatives to vote on and you need to let them know where you stand.   
    The first, is sponsored by state Sen. Clark, is to legalize medical marijuana. This herb can help cancer and glaucoma patients and so many more that, with research, the possibilities are unknown.

  • Christ belongs in public square, everywhere else

    To the editor:
    Editor’s note: The following is in response to a letter in last week’s paper by Maxye Henry titled “Keep Christ out of the public square.”
    Ms. Henry, did you ever think that just maybe this is the reason that our country is in the shape it is in?
    We have taken God out of everything, including the schools, courthouses and even the Oval Office.

  • King is example of Dems’ war on women

    To the editor:
    Any one who state Rep. Kim King comes in contact with knows she is a real jewel; a fine Christian, freedom-loving American.
    Kim in all things puts "we the people" first.
    Kim is known, not just here but across this nation, as a great freedom fighter, and today more then ever she is greatly needed.
    Democrats claim there is a war on women. They should know because here in Anderson County it’s being waged against Kim King.

  • King fends off attacks from good old boys

    To the editor:
    Politics is certainly a topic that will spurn the interest of some yet a turnoff for others.   
    The term “good old boys” – its meaning to me indicates status quo, it is what it is, nothing will change and you have to be in or if you oppose, you’re labeled many terms.
    We’re currently witnessing in today’s political spectrum locally as well as nationally what it means to recline in cruise control as a good old boy while Kentuckians and other Americans suffer from this style of governing.

  • King better choice than ‘know-it-all’ zeros”

    To the editor:
    State Rep. Kim King was an exceptional choice one year, eight months ago when she was elected. I know she will be even more exceptional this November when she runs for re-election.
    I personally think she has a done a great job during her first term. If given the chance she will do an even better job during her next term.
    On a personal note, I think the attacks and slenderizing against Mrs. King by some of our elected officials as well as some of our want-to-be’s was totally inappropriate and tremendously out of order.

  • Let’s keep Christ out of the public square

    To the editor:
    As a secularist, I’ve been interested in the recent letters discussing the existence or nonexistence of Jesus Christ and the veracity of the book that chronicles his life and teachings. However, I don’t intend to enter this particular debate.
