  • 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    It is my opinion that the city’s recently approved ordinance to allow golf carts on city streets needs to be repealed.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.

  • Leaders good at spending other’s money

    To the editor:
    In these hard economic times, I am appalled at the leaders in this country.
    Whether they are leaders in local or federal government, they just don’t get it when it comes to taxes and the welfare of the people.
    There isn’t a person who goes to work every day who is not tired of paying more taxes when every penny must be accounted for in the family. You look at your check and taxes are going up while your pay is going down.

  • Archery teams says thanks

    To the editor:
    I would like to take the time and opportunity to thanks those who came and patronized the car wash we had Sept. 17 at The Soap Factory.
    It is due to the generosity of our community that we are able to get one step closer to our goal of taking three teams from Anderson County to the World NASP Tournament World Champion title.
    We could not begin to attempt this task without the continuing love and support from the businesses and citizens of Anderson County.
    We hope to make you proud once again.

  • Paying for KU’s mistakes

    To the editor:
    So, Kentucky Utilities messed up and know wants its customers to pay for its lack of management.
    It hired a company to do a job, didn’t watch over the people that company hired and for months let that person write down what he wanted without even spot-checking his work.
    Now, do you really think we should pay for KU’s bad management? Really?
    Enough is enough. We do need to stand up because KU has it where we don’t have a choice. We only have one electric company in the city, and one electric company in the county.

  • Don’t put one man’s profit motives ahead of overall public interest

    To the editor:
    I read with great interest the article titled “Upset residents lobby for, get public hearing,” [in last week’s newspaper].
    I attended and participated in all planning and zoning meetings regarding Mr. Larry Cann’s zoning change request within the vicinity of Harry Wise Road, including the fiscal court meeting which this article featured.

  • Taking issue with Herndon’s ‘arrogant, petty statements’

    To the editor:
    I am very offended by the following statement Sports Editor John Herndon made in his column last week in his column titled “Carlson’s take on home-schoolers playing public sports just wrong”: “The bottom line is clear: If a school is not good enough to educate a child, why is it suddenly good enough for a child to have the privilege of playing a sport?”
    I am a product of public school education. At this present time I am a home school educator of my first grade daughter and three other preschool children.
