  • Hey Rues: Here’s a taste of the real Glenn Beck

    To the editor:
    After reading the Rue’s heartfelt tribute to Glenn Beck, the soul of Fox News, I was almost moved to tears.
    With crying towel in hand I read each paragraph with hopes that some facts might emerge, but alas as usual, I could find none.
    But, hopefully a few of Glenn’s historic quotes below will give your readers an idea of why the writers of this tribute adore and will so deeply miss this warm and compassionate man.

  • Longing for the days when Cornish was judge-executive

    To the editor:
    I never thought I would want former judge-executive Steve Cornish back in office, but maybe I was wrong — at least the county roads got mowed equally.
    I live in the Ninevah area and we haven’t been touched this year. Check out our stop sign at the corner of Lanes Mill and Ninevah roads. I guess I no longer have to stop there.
    Perhaps if I have a wreck there I can sue Anderson County like Lea Beasemore, only I would win.

  • Glenn Beck will be missed on Fox News

    To the editor:
    Those of you who read our letters to the editor in the Anderson News probably know that we are fans of Fox News.
    It is because of that network we were fortunate enough to hear Glenn Beck, a person you either like and agree with, or you don’t. For us he has been someone who has tried to inspire this nation to open our eyes, ears, minds and hearts to what is going on around us.

  • Relay thankful for those who helped

    To the editor:
    On behalf of the American Cancer Society and the Relay for Life of Anderson County, I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for helping to make the 2011 Relay for Life a success.
    Once again, the City of Lawrenceburg and the American Legion Post 34 provided the beautiful park for us to hold our event and as always, was very accommodating to whatever we needed.

  • Letter on burning, farming off the mark

    To the editor:
    I am writing to respond to Ms. Deanna Campbell’s letter last week titled “Feed lots bigger problem than burning trash.”
    I strongly disagree with her letter that defended burning household garbage, objected to garbage pickup because “some people cannot afford it” and attacked farmers — especially beef cattle farmers.

  • Barnett wrong, Conway right

    To the editor:
    In response to Magistrate Kenny Barnett’s remarks in last week’s edition of The Anderson News about Nick Satterly being the new parks and recreation director, I thought I would express my pleasure with Judge-Executive John Wayne Conway and the parks and recreation committee for choosing Nick as director.
    The only complaint I can make toward his new position is that I lost one of the best employees to ever work at our HVAC department.

  • Time to take stand against so-called government

    To the editor:
    Anderson County is the image of whacko D.C. — tax and spend and drive out existing businesses and keep out growth.
    Very sad. Being a business owner myself, excuse my language, but the business owner is screwed. We went to pay for our business tax and were told we had to pay county. Why? We don’t work in the county. The answer we received, was, “I don’t set the rules just enforce them.” Sound familiar?

  • Cap donation to VA explained

    To the editor:
    I was asked why we donated 100 new ball caps to the VA hospital in Lexington.
    On his 80th birthday in June, my brother Jim said he wanted to do something to honor the memory of his childhood friend, David Bradshaw of Nicholasville.
    David died in Korea and is buried at Camp Nelson.

  • Why is Lawrenceburg so anti-business?

    To the editor:
    While the Anderson County Chambers of Commerce was removing its belongings from City Hall several weeks ago (more on that in a minute), we were told by City Attorney Robert Myles that he would not do anything about the sign ordinance until he listened to a proposal for changes by chamber members.
    And yet here he is, championing a new ordinance that not only makes signage violations fineable, but Lord help those who should appeal their fine because it could then double.

  • Feed lots bigger problem than burning trash

    To the editor:
    I don’t live in Anderson County, but I hope you, your readers and the powers that be will listen.
    In The Anderson News Extra on Monday, May 30, you ran an article about Anderson County’s “dirty little secret.”
    It’s a strange thing that everyone is so concerned about people burning their trash, yet no one ever seems to question these obnoxious feed lots for cows.
