  • 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.

  • Thanks for help, prayers

    To the editor:
    Recently, our house was destroyed by fire.
    We want to thank everyone, from the brave people who tried to save our home, to those who have helped with donations, assistance and prayers.
    Thank you, and God bless you.

  • Christianity radically different from cults

    To the editor:
    Columnist Nancy Kennedy wrote a column in the Feb. 15 edition of the paper in which she used the phenomenon of “cargo cults” to illustrate something about the Christian life.
    In response, Yossarian Riley wrote a Feb. 22 letter to the editor in which he appeared to equate Christianity with the cargo cults that came into being among remote tribes following World War II.
    I had never heard of cargo cults so I searched the Internet to learn more.

  • Government keeps ripping off the poor

    To the editor:
    This is a poor state with a government that has policies in place to give it excuses to steal from the poor.
    I am one person and the following has happened to me.
    State taxes: we are being nickel and dimed out of our money. When you pay taxes out of your paycheck you expect to get back all that is owed you, right? But you don’t because there are those zeros in the cents column, including your “owed” line. If any cents are owed you they keep it.  
    Multiply that for the entire state.

  • What are you putting in your mouth?

    To the editor:
    What’s on your plate? If you do not eat locally grown, raised, and/or produced food, then more than likely you are eating food that is not real.
    This food has been chemically processed and refined while adding artificial ingredients to produce it in different shapes, sizes, tastes, colors and forms. And since our government allows genetically modified organisms (GMOs) to be consumed by humans and farm animals, our food may contain foreign genes, which have been spliced together in laboratories.

  • Christians share similarities to other cults

    To the editor:
    I enjoyed Ms. Kennedy’s Feb. 15 column titled “Seeking God’s face without a formula.”
    Over the years I have encountered the story of “cargo cults” many times while studying World War II history. 
    I find the phenomena interesting and a fine example of writer, inventor and futurist, Arthur C. Clarke’s third law of prediction which states: any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.

  • 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.
