Letters

  • Nero’s not fiddling on Main Street yet, but he is warming up

    To the editor:
    I just had to write and let everyone know about my recent visit to town.
    As a former Anderson Countian, I was pleased to find friendly people still living there in Lawrenceburg. I ate lunch at a Main Street café — like found in New York City — and was offered a free dessert for waiting for my food.
    I hadn’t realized I had waited and I was enjoying the atmosphere and staring at the delicious desserts.
    At the local bank I was warmly greeted and a recently paved street brought me into town.

  • Relay committee thankful for help

    To the editor:
    On behalf of the American Cancer Society and the Relay for Life of Anderson County, I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for helping to make the 2012 Relay for Life held on June 8 a success.
    Once again, the City of Lawrenceburg and the American Legion Post Unit 34 provided the beautiful park for us to hold our event and as always, was very accommodating to whatever we needed.

  • Recycling bins will be convenient

    Editor’s note: The following is in response to a letter from Lawrenceburg resident Richard Spencer titled “Recycle bins a questionable idea at best,” that was printed in the July 4 edition of the paper.

    To the editor:
    As committee chair for the Anderson County Environmental Committee, I would like to thank Mr. Spencer for taking the time to provide feedback on our plan for improving Anderson County’s environmental program.

  • Community outpouring for Cody Ramsey was tremendous

    To the editor:
    I would like to thank so many of you in this community for the outpouring of support that was offered to the family of Cody Ramsey during the difficult and trying time following his death.
    It was refreshing to see the small-town values that still exist within our growing community.
    Brian Ritchie was so caring and professional and he, along with his staff, did an outstanding job with the visitation, funeral services and arrangements for Cody. Death is never easy for a family, but a sudden death can be overwhelming for a family.

  • Remembering the flag

    To the editor:
    I am writing this letter in regard to a photo and writing project I recently completed.
    I had some close friends recommend that I submit the picture with my writing to my hometown newspaper, possibly for publication on the Fourth of July.
    Thank you so much for your time and I hope you consider printing my work in your newspaper.

    The Flag
    He looks at the flag waving in the air, too young to know the meaning it bears.

  • Recycle bins a questionable idea at best

    To the editor:
    I see the big picture for Anderson County Environmental Committee’s recycling program to become not only profitable in terms of the environment and landfill waste management, but at the very least cost-neutral for taxpayers or even become self-sustaining.

  • ‘Hoping’ for a ‘change’ this November

    To the editor:
    I hope everyone has been enjoying their summer — gee whiz I wish it would warm it up.
    The cold of November is fast approaching and Election Day looms.
    The Obama Care vote of last week (5-4) was the final straw for me in viewing this president’s intentions to mislead and deceive the American people. Obama orchestrated this “tax” document and has shaken this country intending to deceive the American public with a healthcare bill that is dominated by taxation principles.

  • CASA needs Anderson board members

    To the editor:
    The Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) serving Franklin and Anderson counties is in immediate need of individuals willing to serve as active members on the board of directors or assist the organization by volunteering in other capacities.
    CASA (www.franklin-andersoncountycasa.org) is a private, non-profit organization that provides trained volunteers to serve as advocates for abused and neglected children involved in Family Court.

  • Restaurant owner provided ‘blessing’

    To the editor:
    After eating at Tony’s Bar-B-Que Barn after a group motorcycle ride to Lawrenceburg on June 20, my motorcycle would crank but not start.
    Tony Howard, the owner of the restaurant whom I’d never met, saw what was going on and asked if he could help. We informed Tony of the problem and he proceeded to empty the bed of his pickup truck.
    Tony, I and several friends from Southeast Christian Church in Louisville loaded my bike onto his truck, and Tony drove me to Louisville and dropped me off at home.

  • Volunteer enjoys volunteering here

    To the editor:
    I spent the past week working with the Kentucky Changers in Lawrenceburg and at Open Hands Food Pantry.
    I have never worked before, giving food to the needy. It truly blessed my heart.
    I had the privilege of praying with 60-plus families and passing out prayer rocks.
    Please, Anderson County, donate food and money to the  panty. Director David Montgomery is doing an awesome job, but he needs your help because he can’t do it alone.
