  • Pipeline opponents resorting to fear tactics

    To the editor:
    I’m quite tired of all the hysteria surrounding the Bluegrass Pipeline.
    Neighboring states like Ohio are participating in the next American energy revolution and actually celebrating new tax revenue from the transport of natural gas and its byproducts coming from the Utica and Marcellus shale. For once, we are overtaking radical regimes as top producers of energy.

  • Bluegrass Pipeline not a done deal

    To the editor:
    Many Anderson county residents have heard about the [proposed] Bluegrass natural gas liquids pipeline.  Locally, there have been community meetings where residents have voiced various concerns, dozens of articles in various newspapers across the state, and 10 counties passing resolutions against the project.
    Landowners, residents and lawmakers have joined together across the Bluegrass to protect their land and their communities.   

  • Adopt a senior pet in November

    To the editor:
    November is senior pet month. Why not think about giving an older dog or cat a home? There are many advantages to adopting a senior companion animal.

  • Obama’s blunder is destroying America

    To the editor:
    As Americans we toil daily to provide for ourselves and for our family … ah, the pursuit of happiness for many.
    Some of us may be less fortunate or challenged to work for a wage so we seek outreach from other entities.  

  • Thanks for ‘Trick or Treat on Main’

    To the editor:
    We would like to thank the mayor and others for allowing us to trick or treat on Main Street on Friday night.
    It was a blessing meeting other church families and businesses of the community. It was a great turnout and I pray we have this event for years to come.

  • America needs another revolution

    To the editor:
    Our founding fathers anticipated many potential threats to their envisioned democratic republic and included safeguards in our Constitution.
    Since 1787, three threats to America have evolved to dire status and require safeguards. Namely, career politicians, special-interest money and immoral conduct. Of the three, immorality is the greatest threat.
    Morals are manmade. They boil down to simple right and wrong.

  • Cops & Rodders a great event

    To the editor:
    The annual Cops & Rodders 2 2013 Car Show to benefit the Kentucky Sheriffs’ Boys & Girls Ranch and the Anderson D.A.R.E. program’s Shop With a Cop with Sheriff Troy Young hosting the event was a huge success.
    We send our sincere thanks to Sheriff Young, the Anderson County Sheriff’s Office and all those supporting this event and helping out. Your support and help of this event ensures we continue to reach Kentucky’s youth in a positive manner.

  • Hope remains for local atheist

    To the editor:
    This is in response to the guest column written by Jerry Milburn that appeared two weeks ago.
    Sir, with all due respect, you do err. You see, God had no intentions to dismiss his holy name from the nation, public or any other document set forth by those who refused to trust in him. The Bible didn’t get this far for nothing. Matthew10:33: “But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.”

  • Benefit for Nick Crouch successful

    It was a success. We appreciate everyone who donated and supported the effort to assist Nick.

  • Practice what you preach, Milburn

    To the editor:
    I read Mr. Jerry Millburn’s guest column (Hypocrites on school board know they’re wrong) in the paper a few weeks ago and would like to share some observations.
    Mr. Milburn made a reference to prayer being in the closet. Sure, the Bible makes that statement in Matthew 6:6. The only problem is that refers to personal prayer and not group.
