  • 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.

  • 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.
