  • Late night fireworks made animals, humans suffer

    To the editor:
    I want to comment about the terrible fireworks that were going off all over town (during the Fourth of July).
    They seemed like they would never stop, and think of all of the people who have heart trouble, cancer, have trouble breathing and all of the other health problems people have.
    Think also about our pets, including dogs, which have a greater sensitivity to loud noises. My dog suffered so terribly that he got into a closet and we had to set a fan in there to keep it cool and from having a heart attack.

  • Lawyers should represent the community

    To the editor:
    So — it’s not enough that a member of our city council has to denounce the lawyers of Main Street as “shysters,” but then he has to go and apologize for it. Well, methinks that Mr. Evans doth now protest too much, that he should have stuck with his initial assessment, and that he deserves a certain measure of comeuppance for his apology.

  • Clarity needed in health insurance brief

    To the editor:
    This is to the staff reporters that had a news brief related to health care coverage in last week’s paper.
    You had two words that really stuck out to me when I took the time to look up this web page on this subject, since my husband and I can’t get insurance due to pre-existing conditions.
    The two words were may and could. If you would take the time to look this up before you reported on this  

  • Apology for ‘shyster’ comment during council meeting directed at attorneys

    To the editor:
    The verbal statement I made during the board of council meeting on July 11 and was published in The Anderson News was a trivial comment made during a very controversial moment in a meeting.
    If indeed it was offensive to anyone of the lawyers on Main Street, I do humbly offer my apology.
    I was not truly aware of the way most lawyers regard the term in their professional way.
    To all of you, please accept my sincere apology.
    Ken Evans
    Lawrenceburg City Council

  • Schraub following Glenn Beck’s advice

    To the editor:
    Thank you, Dennis Schraub, for your insightful follow-up to our editorial about Glenn Beck.
    Obviously from your quotes you were a Glenn Beck watcher.
    I am so glad that you stockpiled and were able to come up with so many great dated quotes that Beck had on his shows with Fox and other networks, which I am sure were his heartfelt sentiments and not his sarcasm.

  • 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.
