Letters

  • 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.

  • Turner PTO offers thanks for Titan Fest

    To the editor:
    The PTO of Robert B. Turner would like to thank everyone who made this year’s Titan Fest such a wonderful success.
    We couldn’t have done it without the teachers, parents and other volunteers who gave so generously of their time  and resources.
    We would especially like to recognize those individuals and businesses who donated items for the auction and basket raffle.
    We also want to acknowledge the high school students who gave up their Friday night to bring their energy and enthusiasm to the games.

  • Clerk says thanks for election help

    To the editor:
    I want to take just a minute to thanks all those involved in helping make the General Election process go as smoothly as possible.
    I will start with my staff. The election process never stops in our office. My staff continually works to ensure that everything is ready for Election Day. My deputies work daily to process voter registration information along with preparing for the upcoming election.

  • Deputies did great job

    To the editor:
    You can tell a lot about a person when you take them out of their comfort zone.
    Friday night we had the honor of working with the Anderson County Sheriff’s Office. The event: Dinner With The Deputies. The cause: Shop With a Cop.
    The folks did a wonderful job and, even with all of my corny cop jokes, they were not distracted.

  • Herndon, Bearcat broadcast team help preserve lifetime memories

    To the editor:
    For most of us who enjoy sports, especially high school sports, we’ve been blessed with the coverage of John Herndon and The Anderson News.
    As a dad, Wednesday can’t come fast enough. While certainly the front page catches my eye, to be quite honest, I always start with John’s sports and work backwards to the lesser important news and information.  We’ve become accustomed to the multiple, award winning columns that he produces each week as “sports editor.”

  • Thanks all around for help with 5K run

    To the editor:
    I just want to write to say how proud I am to be associated with so many fine people who want to help young people.
    We put on 5K run to raise money for the boys’ basketball team and had112 runners register.
    First of all a thank you goes to the mayor for letting us use the city streets and city police. Police Chief Tommy Burris worked well with us, and the runners loved running on Main Street because it is flat and they could breathe properly. Thanks are also due the sheriff’s office.

  • Auxiliary is truly ‘Friends of Troops’

    To the editor:
    In preparing for the upcoming Christmas and Valentine mail collections, Friends of Our Troops would like to extend special thanks to American Legion  
    Auxiliary Unit 34 in Lawrenceburg, which participated in the most recent campaign.
    The group, which was one of the leading American Legion Auxiliaries in Kentucky, was led by Betty Butler.
    Cards and letters are received from across the nation, mixed thoroughly, divided into hundreds of packages, then sent to military units across the US and around the world.

  • Mandatory trash will harm seniors

    To the editor:
    Just some tidbits for you to chew on about the mandatory trash collection:
    1. I am sure some people in the county still have cisterns, so therefore no water bill.
    2. Not condoning it, but some seniors with a tiny bag of trash put theirs together and split the trash bill. This will be a hardship for those limited income seniors.
    3. It doesn’t seem fair that little Ms. Senior should pay as much for a tiny little bag of trash as Joe Public with the six kids who has eight bags or so a week.
    Just sayin’.
