Letters

  • Christians: Let’s unite in prayer

    To the editor:

    This letter is for all of the Christians in Anderson County.

    As the New York Daily News hit the stands, its editorial pages had been stripped of the scheduled copy and, instead, the newspaper published the Lord’s Prayer.

  • Don’t miss opportunity to vote

    To the editor:

    Hundreds of thousands of young Americans are serving our military to preserve our way of life, and yet fewer and fewer citizens are participating in our democracy.

    May 19 is primary election day when Kentuckians will be selecting candidates for governor, commissioner of agriculture, and other constitutional officers.

    Members of Anderson County Farm Bureau hope every voter will make their voices heard by casting informed votes for our government leaders.

  • Diabetes takes close family friend

    To the editor:

    It was a sad day for our family April 8. We had to put down our dog, Bear, because of his diabetes.

    He was blind and his liver was failing He stopped eating and when he did, it would come back up.

    He became very weak and started to wobble when he walked, it was very hard for him to get up and move around.

    It was time for him to give it up.

    Bear was a kind, gentle and loving dog. He loved kids and adults alike.

    He will always be in our hearts and minds. We dearly miss him. We love you, Bear.

  • N word shouldn’t be used at all

    To the editor:

    I am going to cut to the chase with Sports Editor John Herndon’s column last week titled “Harrison’s words a reflection of society.”

    The one line, “Some downplay the racial slur as common language among young African Americans.” Yes, I noticed he said “some,” but it’s now just as much, if not more of young Caucasian males and females throwing the N word around as everyday common language.

  • Big shout out to firefighters

    To the editor:

    I am writing to send a big thank you to the men and women in the local volunteer dire department who came to our rescue April 1.

    My hero, my son Kaleb Diaz who is 10 years old, called 911 and the fire and rescue were there within minutes to extinguish the fire that had gotten out of control when simply trying to burn leaves in the ditch line.

  • Thankful for Boot Drive

     

    To the editor:

    April is Child Abuse Prevention Month and the Anderson County Ad Hoc Committee for CASA held its annual Boot Drive April 4.

    Thanks to city firefighters Katherine Read, Michaela McCane, Morgan Penn, Tim Read, Theresa Fannin, T.J. Hannah and Allen Davenport, we doubled the money we raised last year.

  • Hats off to Lawrenceburg employees

    To the editor:

    Our city employees were out in last Thursday night’s terrible storm since 9:30 and were still out at 3:30 a.m. to repair a broken water pipe on Ripy Street.

    I’m so very thankful for these dedicated individuals. Instead of being home with their families in a nice warm dry bed, they were out making sure others will have water for showers in the morning.

    It was dangerous for them out there with torrential rain, 40 to 60 mph winds and lightning.

    I can’t say enough good about our city employees.

  • Spending, with no common sense

    To the editor:

    America has sank into a quagmire of debt and depravity.

    Our founding fathers enacted two safeguards to prevent incompetence and long-term corruption in Congress. Consequently, representatives are reelected every two years so that voters can fire incumbents that mishandle tax dollars, and the press is expected to report all corrupt or incompetent departures from frugality.

    The two measures have evolved to ineffectiveness.

  • Newspaper doing what it should

    To the editor:

    I meant to write this letter before now.

    I want to welcome Ben Carlson back to the role of publisher/editor of The Anderson News.

    Under his leadership the paper is more than a source of information about local happenings, though that is important enough.
