  • Burgoo cook-off great for Shop With a Cop

    To the editor:
    The recent Burgoo Festival featured the first ever Burgoo Cook-off, with all proceeds going to the Anderson County Shop With a Cop Program.
    When it was over, $460 had been raised for this amazing program.
    I feel some thanks are very much in order.
    First and foremost I’d like to thank Editor Ben Carlson, who came up with the idea and marched on with it in the face of numerous naysayers who proclaimed that it would not amount to anything.

  • Finally, a president who supports coal

    To the editor:
    The recent news that the Big Sandy Power Plant near Louisa will continue to operate as a coal-burning electrical generation plant should be a cause for celebration throughout its distribution area.
    I applaud Kentucky Power Company President Greg Pauley’s decision to keep it coal. It’s good to see a president that appreciates coal. From day one, President Obama has been against coal. He has allowed the EPA to promulgate its own rules that have sent miners home due to the stalling-out effect of their rules on the industry.

  • Spared rod to blame for Healing Field thefts

    To the editor:
    Regarding the article two weeks about about the theft of flags from the Healing Field, Auxiliary member Pam Rice said the thefts were “very disturbing.”
    Congressman Ben Chandler said he can’t understand why anyone would resort to stealing flags.
    Attorney Marie Hellard agreed, saying she also can’t understand the thefts.
    What concerns me more than the thefts is that you all don’t get it, and some of you are in positions of power.

  • Trick-or-treat hours should be set to later time

    To the editor:
    The celebration of Halloween climaxes with the trick-or-treaters going door to door throughout our neighborhoods.
    Typically, this is done at sundown as it used to be done in Lawrenceburg.
    For the past two years the time has been move to an earlier time in the evening.
    This has taken some of the fun and spookiness out of the experience for everyone.
    As very large supporters of Halloween, we decorate every year for this fun and spooky event.

  • Company cut trees despite being told not to

    To the editor:
    In September, a man representing Blue Grass Energy stopped at our home. He was checking with homeowners about trees directly under or surrounding power lines.
    My husband said he was asking for permission to cut down or trim these trees. He told the man he could trim but not cut the trees along our front driveway.
    Those trees, water maples, were planted or put out with the help of my dad, Floyd Stratton. He passed away in 2001, so these trees are or were of great value to me.

  • Culvert thief invited to attend church

    To the editor:
    This letter is to the man who stole the cast iron culvert from the driveway at 216 Horn Drive.
    I know who you are, so don’t think you got away without anyone knowing.
    I really don’t care about the culvert, and probably would have given it to you had you asked.
    I do, however, care about you.
    I forgive you for taking that which did not belong to you. I have been praying for you and invite you to the Sunday morning service at Lawrenceburg First Baptist Church to hear about God’s love for you.

  • Good job, Eddie Carey

    To the editor:
    I would like to thank the KTPA, Mr. Eddie Carey and all of his help who worked so hard last weekend to put on the truck pull.
    It was really a good show and some good, clean entertainment.
    I can only hope [he] can continue to have these truck pulls. Everybody enjoyed the show, and Eddie’s hard work.
    Hopefully, it will be bigger and better next year.

  • Wall Street mob playing right into Obama’s hands

    To the editor:
    The most recent newsmaker takes place in the Big Apple – protesting Wall Street.

  • Truck, tractor pull benefited community

    To the editor:
    I attended the truck and tractor pull the weekend of the Burgoo Festival on both Friday and Saturday nights.
    I was amazed to see so many people in attendance, the very young and the old, like me.
    The event was well planned and organized by Eddie Carey as a fundraiser for a gentleman with cancer.
    When you see Eddie, tell him thanks for a job well done.
    Eddie has a vision for the motorsports park to become one of the premier pulling tracks in the nation, and if last weekend was an indication, Lawrenceburg could become just that.

  • Stolen flags: more questions than answers

    To the editor:
    Last Friday morning I attended the ceremony at the Healing Field at the American Legion.
    I was so glad to see a large group gathered for such an important event.
    As I listened to Congressman Ben Chandler, state Rep. Kim King and other officials, I stood there trying to understand why anyone would steal a United States flag, especially one that had been flying over a marker representing a fallen hero.
    I gave up. I can’t understand and was appalled over such disrespect to the flag and to the memory of those fallen soldiers.
