  • Christians should unite for National Day of Prayer

    To the editor:
    Is America in a crisis? I believe so.
    I believe America is in a crisis of belief.
    Sometimes it seems like our world is spinning out of control.  Maybe it seems that your own life is spinning out of control.
    Do you often long for peace and tranquility? God won’t force himself in where he is not invited.
    Particularly, our government has been pushing God out of American life every way they can.
    God will keep out. “America, America, God shed his grace on thee. …”

  • CASA says thanks for successful auction

    To the editor:
    Court Appointed Special Advocates, which serves Franklin and Anderson counties, would like to thank you for your support of the “Bids for Kids” auction that benefited the CASA volunteer program.
    A special evening was held in Frankfort on April 19 in support of CASA. Donated artwork was auctioned and works for sale included framed and unframed landscapes, prints, watercolors, cityscapes, abstracts and more.
    Dinner was offered after the auction with a portion of all restaurant sales supporting CASA.

  • Hard work results in cleaner Wildcat Road

    To the editor:
    Thanks to a group of hard-working people, Wildcat Road is one step closer to becoming the pristine landscape it once was.
    Last week, tons of waste and garbage was removed from one of the prettiest one-mile stretches of road in Anderson County.
    I want to offer a sincere thank you to everyone who made possible this major cleanup project.

  • No reason for ‘butchered’ Parkway, stink near college

    To the editor:
    You ask if something is bugging me, and I’ll say there is.
    Have you driven down the Blue Grass Parkway? It is an eyesore from exit 48 toward the Lawrenceburg exit. The trees on the side of the Parkway have just been butchered and hacked up. It looks like a tornado went through there.
    It’s shameful. What is it, laziness that they can’t do better than this?
    It’s ugly!
    Also, a lot of people were hit by tornadoes this year. Suppose they drive down the Parkway — big reminder, wouldn’t you say?

  • Lawrenceburg should do business in city

    To the editor:
    The most shocking part of the story about Rodney Goodlett (“Insurer threatens to leave town, may run for mayor” in last week’s paper) was not about who had to buy a business license to get the city’s insurance contract, but the fact that the city of Lawrenceburg had no more loyalty to those buying licenses and paying taxes than to give the contract to some out of town people.
    I am sure the answer would be, “Well, we saved money.”

  • Input needed for sewers in Bob-O-Link

    To the editor:
    This letter is meant to clarify and add to the article, “City sewer service for Bob-O-Link?” which appeared in the April 11 edition of The Anderson News.
    The reason I went to the council meeting and asked for their assistance was as quoted, “to get the ball rolling.”  
    I knew the city had extended the main trunk line to the entrance of our subdivision and installed a pump station.

  • Cub Scouts thankful for community’s help

    To the editor:
    Thank you to everyone in Lawrenceburg for supporting those in need in March.
    The Cub Scout core value for March 2012 was compassion.  Lawrenceburg Cub Scout Pack 38 was very active in exercising this core value and had a lot of help from those from Lawrenceburg.

  • Bagdad days to celebrate heroes

    To the editor:
    I am writing to inform the public of a community event that will honor Kentucky’s military heroes.
    On May 12, Bagdad Days, a community event sponsored by Bagdad Baptist Church, will be celebrating 20 years.  As part of this celebration, the community will pay special honor to those Kentucky individuals who have served in military combat for our country.

  • Owner searching for missing dog

    To the editor:
    The owner of the missing English mastiff is desperately pleading for the help of Anderson County residents.
    Tasia is not used to running loose in the county and she may be acting afraid and difficult to catch.
    If you see Tasia, she is probably very hungry and could probably be trapped with food in an enclosed area.
    We are very hopeful that she stays out of the traffic but firmly believe that she is trying to make her way back into town, where she calls home on Court Street.  

  • Band of Brothers serves community well

    To the editor:
    At a recent boys’ and girls’ basketball game, the Band of Brothers Community Service Organization, along with Morgan Norton, Allie Rogers, Brittany House, Haley Elder, Lauren Fowler and Abby Pike, collected donations for our local food pantry.
    The Band of Brothers is a group of senior football players who have determined they would like to serve their community.
    Serve they did.
    With the help of the beautiful young ladies, they collected at the gate, concessions area and throughout the crowd during both ball games.
