  • Why is library restricting toll-free calls?

    To the editor:
    Egads! Now I cannot even make a toll free phone call from the Anderson Public Library.
    I can’t call to look for a job in Frankfort, Harrodsburg or Versailles, now not even toll free calls.
    Someone please tell me why I pay taxes for this public facility? Where is all the money being spent? It is not in giving me a job when they were hiring.
    There’s no work in Lawrenceburg, and that’s as far as local phone goes; this is a scam worthy of its own post.

  • Go ahead, close Wildcat Road

    To the editor:
    While raising funds for my kids’ team, I’ve had the opportunity to see the best that Anderson County has to offer, as well as some of the worst.
    As part of a grant secured by the county, we participated in 11 miles of road clean up. This was a great opportunity for us to give back to the community and earn much-needed funds in the process.

  • Angry over lights, road to Mickey D’s

    To the editor:
    Is anyone else getting tired of the red light at Main and Woodford?
    Why is it they put a turn light on Woodford Street and not one for Main Street?
    There is so much trouble turning from Main Street to Woodford Street, unless you get lucky and can miss a car and do a quick turn.
    The same issue exists at US 127 Bypass and Glensboro Road. Why is there not a turn light there, either?
    Oh, and another thing. When is someone going to take responsibility for the road into the new McDonald’s?

  • Attacks on the church coming from within

    To the editor:
    It is disheartening to read and listen to all the hateful and disparaging things being said about the church these past few weeks.

  • Christian Academy thanks ACHS archery team

    To the editor:

  • Preserve and protect the beauty of Wildcat Creek

    To the editor:
    I can’t describe my joy at hearing of the upset about the state of Wildcat Creek.

  • Closing Wildcat Road sickens reader

    To the editor:
    It ills me to see that some disrespectful knuckleheads dumped their trash off Wildcat Road. I hope they get caught some day. However, the idea of closing part of the road is more sickening. So many of us drive it just to enjoy this county treasure. I am sure it is rough to be a county employee who has to clean what they can, but I would think it is part of the job. I hope and pray county officials will not let this happen

  • ‘Guys and Dolls’ deserve plenty of support

    To the editor:
    I want to extend an invitation to everyone in Anderson County and beyond to come to something that is beyond the sports at the high school. There is something else evolving among our young people, and we have many talents emerging from our drama and choir department at the high school.

  • Thanks for helping family cope with cancer

    To the editor:
    My family and I would like to thank everyone for everything they did for our family when our 2-year-old daughter, Ryleigh McKinney, was fighting cancer.
    When we found out in May that she had stage 4 liver cancer, our world was crushed. Our community came together with prayers, thoughts, kind words, support, food, and money.
    You name it and everyone was ready to help.
    Many people have done something to help us get through this tough time, so we figured this would be the best way to thank as many people as possible.

  • Stop dumping on Wildcat Road

    To the editor:
    It’s been a tough winter on Wildcat Road.
    The blizzard of 2012 didn’t come in the form of ice and snow this year, instead it came in the form of trash.
    The paved part of Wildcat gets its share of beer bottles, fast food wrappers and aluminum cans. Once the pavement turns to gravel, the littering turns to dumping.  Construction debris, furniture, electronics, tires, car parts, landscaping leftovers, even a hot tub have all turned up this winter.
