  • 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.

  • Letters to the editor: ‘Angry Beasmore’ looking for headlines

    To the editor:
    This letter is in response to the article in the paper on May 16 regarding “Angry Beasmores demands answers.”
    First and foremost, I am confused as to why the Beasmores are demanding answers to questions when they already have been informed of the answers. Ms. Beasmore attended the court proceeding regarding the Marrs property. Everyone at the proceeding learned that this property is in litigation to dissolve a business partnership, and that it is up to the court to make a decision regarding what happens to it.

  • Obama should run for different presidency

    To the editor:
    In recent weeks I have watched the news and special events going on for the re-election of [President] Obama and I’ve come to the conclusion that yes, he should run and be nominated but for something other then the president of the United States.
    I think he would make an excellent candidate for the Screen Actor’s Guild (now known as SAG-AFTRA), and should make a run to become the president of that labor union.

  • Leaders should follow the rules, too

    To the editor:
    When some business tenants of mine were forced to obtain a conditional use permit, they pointed out that one of our county officials, Jason Denny, doesn’t have one for his own home-based business.
    Denny, our county clerk and a former magistrate, has operated his lawn care business for years from his home. It seems to me that it would be virtually impossible for him not to know he needed a permit to operate a business from his home.

  • CASA thanks volunteers

    To the editor:
    CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) organized a Stop Child Abuse fund raising event April 7 by having
    CASA volunteers, and some other very special volunteers, collect money at various intersections in the city.  

  • Truck pulls benefit community

    To the editor:
    In response to the article in last week’s paper regarding the truck pull event sponsored by Eddie Carey, as a Lawrenceburg resident and a participant of the truck pull, we voice our support for the event.
    We’d be disappointed to see Lawrenceburg lose this event to a surrounding county. Folks are losing sight of what this event does for the community.

  • 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?
