Letters

  • Support for Rothenburger

    To the editor:
    I am writing to acknowledge my support for Shelby County Judge-Executive Rob Rothenburger for Kentucky’s next Agriculture Commissioner and to ask for your support.

  • Cemetery policy is much too strict

    To the editor:
    The rulers of the cemetery have spoken and I’m confident many hearts are troubled.
    Yes, I agree there are some gravesites that are overstated to say the least. Many, including that of my parents, are well maintained and conservative.
    It is hard for me to understand how the removal of these concrete floral urns honoring my parents will ease mowing. The urns are placed against the monument and should create no additional problems. The flowers are nurtured and watered several times weekly, all of which allows some moments of reflection.

  • Please remember National Day of Prayer

    To the editor:
    In recent years, many people have tried to discredit America’s Christian roots. I am concerned that Christians are deliberately giving up a freedom to enjoy joining corporately to pray for our nation.
    In 1775, the Continental Congress asked the colonies to pray for wisdom in forming a nation. Many times since then, our nation has been called to prayer and the first Thursday of May each year has been designated as the annual observance for the National Day of Prayer (Public Law 100-307-May 5, 1988)

  • ‘Older Americans: Connecting the Community’

    To the editor:
    Every May since 1963, people all across our country have celebrated the enormous contributions of older Americans.
    The Anderson Senior Center is joining in the festivities with a full month of special activities and events, spotlighting the contributions of our seniors to our community.

  • Thanks for helping Alabama mission

    To the editor:
    We would like to thank all the business and individuals that donated water, money and other items to be taken to the tornado victims in Alabama.
    We arrived in Alabama on Sunday night, dropped the truck and unloaded it early Monday morning. They took down 250 cases of water, 18 cases of canned goods, several cases of diapers, baby wipes, sanitary gloves and baby formula.
    After unloading the truck, we volunteered at one of the areas.

  • Hurley doing great job for health dept.

    To the editor:
    I am writing in response to the April 20 Anderson News editorial. I am an Anderson County resident and News subscriber. I’ve also known Brandon Hurley and many Anderson County Health Department staff and board members as professional public health colleagues.
    I’ve noticed a significant increase in community outreach activities covered and advertised in the News since Brandon joined ACHD, such as the fall flu vaccine drive-through clinics at the community park.

  • Chandler ‘detached’ from issues

    To the editor:
    In a speech to Farm Bureau recently, Congressman Ben Chandler stated that debt “is one of the great issues of our day. It has gotten worse for a number of reasons. I could go into a laundry list of those reasons,” but avoided doing so.
    The laundry list, however, is being lived out by Chandler, even though he refused to speak about it. Chandler has lately been omnipresent, visiting libraries, passing out flags and appearing on TV warning of the dangers of using credit cards online, and telling people to take CPR lessons.

  • Fayette judge-executive urges merger

    How would the good people in Lawrenceburg and Anderson County like to save money by downsizing government?
    In Fayette County we no longer have two police departments, two fire departments and other duplication of local government services.

  • Brother’s faith an inspiration

    To the editor:
    The Lord’s will, and our purpose in it, is often hidden from us due to our own intellect.
    For many years I couldn’t wrap my head around this faith thing. Him working through me now, and giving me wisdom, I realize that my intellect was in the way of his purpose.
    Total surrender is ultimately necessary in order to receive his blessings, and to carry out his will for others to receive it.

  • Where was coverage of ‘Annie?’

    To the editor:
    This letter to the editor is directed to the editor of The Anderson News.
    I am disappointed at the complete lack of coverage of the Anderson County High School ACT CATS spring musical, Annie.
    This production was a community event that spanned two weeks and involved dozens of the youth of this community in both performing and technical roles.
    It represented countless hours of effort on the part of the students and of the educators who live and work here.
