  • 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.

  • No more ‘yes’ men, woman for library

    To the editor:
    I read your column in last week’s paper about the way our property taxes are divided and think most of us can agree that while the library is very useful and we all love it, the expense is outrageous.
    This is a classic case of abuse of our tax money. I recently went to a library board meeting and it took me about five minutes to identify the problem. It’s the board.
    These folks are doing the best they can, but there are no accountants, bankers business owners, etc., on it.
    The library tells them what she wants and gets it.

  • Team encourages others to make difference

    To the editor:
    The Anderson County High School Volleyball Team participated in 2012 Relay For Life event held on Friday, June 8 at the American Legion Park.
    Coach Bobby Hardin and Coach Courtney Delong encouraged the teammates to embrace team bonding by actively participating in this community outreach event for a worthy cause. Together the team helped raise $360 and increase awareness to celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against this disease.  

  • Assistance needed for Wall of Honor

    To the editor:
    The Veterans Wall of Honor is in need of funds for maintenance of landscaping.
    We are asking for the community’s help with this beautiful area of Lawrenceburg.
    No veteran has ever had to pay for his or her name to be placed on the Veterans Wall.
    Donations may be mailed to Veterans Wall of Honor, P.O. Box 672, Lawrenceburg, KY 40342.

  • Support urged for community theater

    To the editor:
    If you haven’t heard of them before, I want to introduce you to the Anderson Community Theater.
    This group of actors consists mainly of our local residents with a lot of talent.

  • Willing to pay for more sports

    To the editor:
    I read sports editor’s column in last week’s paper about his concern for the expansion of Kentucky High School Athletic Association sports.
    The column leaves the reader thinking the KHSAA is on a tear, adding new sports right and left.
    In fact, until this year the KHSAA has not sanctioned a new sport for member schools since 1978. It has in fact been a long drought when it comes to adding popular and accessible sports in high school athletics.
