  • 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?

  • 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.
