  • Goodlett family says thank you

    To the editor:

    The family of the late Kenny Goodlett sincerely thanks all family and friends for their support, prayers, flowers, visits, cards, donations, food and phone calls after his recent passing.

    During the days of his illness and weeks following his passing, we have been truly blessed with such an outpouring of love and support.

  • Vietnam vet story was ‘wonderful’

    To the editor:

    Staff writer Ricki Barker did the most wonderful job on the story headlined “Vets have lifelong bond,” about the Vietnam War buddies who reunited after 44 years.

    Great job, Ricki! Thanks for making it a proud time, not the terrible time it was.

  • Media should stop naming, showing killers

    To the editor:

    Evil debuted in the Garden of Evil. Since its famous debut, it has filled history books with infamous dates and egregious crimes like the recent church shooting in South Carolina, which also launched subsequent attacks on the wrong fronts.

  • Court correct on same-sex marriage

    To the editor:

    I read with interest Editor Ben Carlson’s column on the Supreme Court decision to allow gays to marry legally in last week’s paper.

    You have a libertarian, unusual opinion that the government should not be involved in the union of any two people — in other words, anyone should be able to marry anyone else without the benefit of a marriage license, or a legal permission slip, as you called it.

  • More self-government needed

    To the editor:

    In his column last week, Editor Ben Carlson stated his opinion concerning the recent Supreme Court’s decision on same-sex marriage.

    I respect Ben’s opinion. I only want to state my opinion about that decision. It seemed to me that the court affirmed equality between us all. I agree with the decision, and I believe we need self-government.

  • Good stewards of your tax dollars

    To the editor:

    In a world where it seems every day we see wasteful government spending, I am happy to report at least one of your tax districts here in Anderson County is doing its best to be good stewards of your tax dollars.  

    In full disclosure, I am on the Fire Board of the Anderson County Fire Protection District, although I am writing this letter as a fellow taxpayer.  

  • Elected liars don’t care about you

    To the editor:

  • Teen programming at library cause for concern

    To the editor:

    We have some very great concerns about the Anderson Public Library’s teen programming.
    As young adults, there are no programs for people our age. We were allowed to partake in the teen programs, however, since several staff changes, the rules have been changed to prevent us from being a part of the teen programs. We were told to join the adult programs, which are far and few in between.

  • Why are property values falling? All you need to do is look around

    To the editor:

  • Hoping Janie enjoys retirement

    The June 3 edition of The Anderson News we received in our mailbox was different. John Herndon and Don White, two people I truly respect, gave lengthy tributes to someone I had only met in passing. Being from Ohio and arriving in Kentucky when I was 25 in 1977, I thought Kentucky was backward.

    Backward came to be a word I thought differently about as the years rolled by. Now I know how fortunate I am to be in this commonwealth with its traditions, and to have had the pleasure to read each week what is printed in The Anderson News.
