Letters

  • 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.

  • Knocking, seeking, but God isn’t home

    To the editor:
    Are you as confused as I am as to whose side God is on in the political arena?
    The rejoinder materializing from my query has left me befuddled, bewildered, discombobulated, and … well, you know, confused.
    The founding fathers established a separation of church and state to ensure religious freedom in our country through the First Amendment. Even so religion and politics has always been a capricious amalgam at the dinner table as well as on the local and national scenes.

  • Historic district details intentionally vague

    To the editor:
    At a meeting on Dec. 6 about a proposed historic district, a large group attended to hear the details for the proposed historic district in downtown Lawrenceburg.

  • Thanks for Shop With Cop support

    To the editor:
    I would like to thank everyone for their support in our annual Shop With A Cop program.
    The continued success of this program is because we live in a very giving and supportive community. Each year the program continues to grow thanks to your help.
    A big thanks to all of our emergency service personnel that volunteered their time to shop with a child this year.  Of course, without the businesses and individuals who donated and helped us raise the money needed, none of this would be possible.

  • Commission thankful for input

    To the editor:
    To the residents of Lawrenceburg and the proposed historic district:
    We would like to thank all those who attended the proposed Historic District hearing on Dec. 6, 2011, especially those who spoke for or against our proposal.
    We consider this as a positive response to getting our citizens involved in the day-to-day workings of Lawrenceburg. As a committee that has worked on the Historic District designation for more than two and a half years, we were pleased to hear a diversity of opinions.

  • Conway owes explanation

    Editor’s note: The following letter was written to Judge-Executive John Wayne Conway and submitted here for publication.
    To the editor:
    I was totally shocked and terribly disappointed upon reading the Dec. 11 Anderson News article that you have arbitrarily tabled unification efforts to merge our local governments; particularly in view of the apparent good faith votes of the city council and fiscal court on Aug. 16 to adopt ordinances creating a unification review commission.

  • Conway, Ruggles ‘keeping them honest’

    To the editor:
    Recently, I have seen two government officials doing what they were elected to do.
    County Judge-Executive Conway and Magistrate David Ruggles have both been very vocal concerning what they perceived as government waste.
    I am not writing this letter to endorse their views, but only to endorse their watch-dog attitude. I truly believe that these two gentlemen understand how our economy works: lower taxes and fees, keep an eye on unnecessary or wasteful government, and you will empower the citizens of this county to spend money.

  • Report abuse to protect children, elderly

    To the editor:
    During these turbulent times we are hearing daily of mistreatment of our children and the elderly.
    People, wake up! We are all responsible for our most vulnerable, not just social workers, school nurses, teachers, police and other law enforcement.
    We, as family and friends, neighbors, co-workers or even fellow shoppers have a responsibility to report and follow up on unusual and questionable situations concerning our children and aging citizens.

  • Bearcats are proven heroes, winners

    To the editor:
    As I watched the 5A championship game online and watched the Bearcats fight for every yard, the amazing thing was that through out the entire game the announcers commended Anderson County for their attitude.
    At half time, they reminded the watchers and listeners that Anderson would not give up; that Coach Mark Peach would come out with a game plan; that the players  
    reflected their coach’s attitude in a positive way.
