  • 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.

  • Golf carts on streets a bad idea

    To the editor:
    Golf carts, cars and trucks on city streets with a speed limit of 35 mph.
    That sounds like an accident waiting to happen.
    It is my opinion that the city’s recently approved ordinance to allow golf carts on city streets needs to be repealed.
    If it is not, the carts should have brake lights, turn signals, seat belts and be insured to cover it while being driven on city streets.

  • Thanks for buying Lawrenceburg Green

    To the editor:
    I would like thank Mayor Edwinna Baker for purchasing the Lawrenceburg Green.
    The Friday night movies are a great idea (along with other fun activities on the Green) and it is nice to see
    local activities for community members of all ages.
    Who knows? Maybe we will be able to get a skating rink this year for December on the Green.
    Thanks again; we all really appreciate everything your doing.

  • ‘Constitutional fight’ editorial on the mark

    To the editor:
    This is in response to last week’s editorial titled, “It’s time to pick a Constitutional fight.”
    It’s far and few between when I see a headline such as that, and this subject brings me to my feet.
    As a Tea Party member from the start — along with millions of Americans including grandparents, parents, college students and people from all walks of life — this is what we have stood for.

  • Trash collection, but no pool

     To the editor:
    It’s time for the people of Anderson County to stand up and say something about our local government.
    I don’t believe they should be able to tell us we have to have mandatory trash collection when the trash company only picks up what it wants, not what is sent out.
    They say they’re trying to stop people from throwing things on the sides of the roads. Well, then, make it mandatory for the trash company to pick up what is put on the curb. Then see how much gets thrown on the sides of roads.
