  • Daughter thankful for article on mother

    To the editor:
    Thank you for choosing to write the facts of our precious mother’s body being [allegedly] damaged by the staff of Sunset Memorial Gardens.
    That body belonged to Katherine Galbraith, a woman who had lived through the Depression, World War II, the death of her child and the suicide of her husband.
    She was much loved by her daughters, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, niece and countless others she adopted along the way of her life.

  • Phrases to help promote a happier life

    To the editor:
    Life isn’t fair, so don’t expect it to be.
    Life is filled with good and bad, and you will get your share of both.
    Victory is easy. Disappointments will teach  us more than joys.
    There is a silver lining to every dark cloud. Destructive times in life are like concrete blocks. You have the power to let go. It is up to you.

  • Take time to help, care for elderly

    To the editor:
    If you don’t have contact with the elderly, you don’t know what you’re missing.
    Ever wonder what you’re grandmother, grandfather or any other elderly person does all day? Oh, I’m sure some of them are still very active & spend a lot of time with their families, but what about the Ms. Jones who lives on your street? She may not be so active or have family close by.

  • Use paper to foster pride in county

    To the editor:
    I find that one of the best ways to learn about your community is by reading the local newspaper, and after moving to Lawrenceburg, my family and I became immediate subscribers.
    Week after week I anxiously awaited the arrival of the paper to see what type of entertaining story would be reported on the front page. The Anderson News never disappoints.  

  • Food pantry thankful for support

    To the editor:
    We would like to thank all the people and businesses who donated food and their time to make this year’s Community Christmas Outreach Meal at Open Hands Pantry a huge success.
    It is because of your generosity that we were able to provide meals for 469 people. We had many people come to the pantry to eat and fellowship, which we encourage, and we delivered meals, also.
    A big thanks goes out to Mark and Susie for all you did to make food available to us. May God bless you all.

  • Lack of travel policy latest example of city, county government blunders

    To the editor:

  • Pierian Club says thanks

    To the editor:
    The Lawrenceburg Pierian Woman’s Club would like to thank our friends and neighbors for their generous support of our holiday fundraiser.
    We made and sold more than 500 dozen bourbon balls and buckeyes.
    The proceeds from our sales will enable us to continue our college scholarship program and contribute to Backpack Buddies and other local charities.
    Special thanks to Wild Turkey Bourbon’s Master Distiller Jimmy Russell and St. Lawrence Catholic Church.

  • K-9 deputy new weapon in war on drugs

    To the editor:
    As a deputy sheriff I am frequently asked about a solution to the drug problem in our beloved county. Wanting to assure that person that we indeed have a firm grip on the issue, I begin to explain that the keys to the drug problem are not held by one person or department, but are kept by a much larger network.
    I always say that it starts with the public. As citizens, we must commit to the war on drugs as being avid watchdogs and refuse to turn a blind eye to drug activity in our community.

  • Banning fake pot, bath salts isn’t answer

    To the editor:
    Does every level of government just need to create more laws year after year in order to “fix” what we deem is wrong with society?
    Do elected officials wake in the morning thinking we can solve our problems with more regulations, more government, or maybe even a historical district?
    Did you ever stop and think for a moment that we as individuals are free to make choices that can have positive and negative effects on our lives?

  • Dairy Cheer employees say thanks

    To the editor:
    We would like to thank the citizens of Lawrenceburg for their outpouring of support.
    Thirty people now have a little hope and restored faith during this time.
    We love this town and the way it comes together whenever one of its own is in need.
    Lawrenceburg has a special breed of people. We may love, fight and bicker with one another, but when something happens to someone in our town the message is clear: Don’t mess with Lawrenceburg.
