  • In Orwell’s world, Wisconsinites are good, Tea Partiers are bad

    To the editor:
    During our national “summer of discontent” leading up to the passage of the health care bill, the Tea Party movement grabbed headlines with its passionate opposition to that specific bill along with other concerns around which they coalesced.
    They often confronted their elected representatives in town hall meetings, so much so that many of those representatives stopped participating in those forums.
    Tea Partiers were passionate, often raucous, and sometimes boorish in their energetic efforts to make themselves heard.

  • Distilleries need break on ad valorem tax

    To the editor:
    Bourbon is a proud symbol of Kentucky craftsmanship and tradition that’s hailed around the world. It’s a legendary signature industry that creates 10,000 good-paying jobs and pours hundreds of millions into the Bluegrass economy.
    It’s also a growing, thriving industry in these times of economic hardship. Distillery growth has helped Kentucky weather the global recession by adding six percent of new jobs this past decade, while other state manufacturers have shed 19 percent of their employment.

  • Obama, congress should adopt Superman’s credo

    To the editor:
    Our Constitution requires the president to give information of the state of the union to Congress and recommend such measures as “he shall judge necessary and expedient …”
    Congress received no such information from President Obama on Jan. 25. No specific measures were recommended to address the 50.2 million impoverished Americans or any of the other well-known problems that range from debt and meaningless wars to the tyrannical lobby industry.

  • City should own up to mistakes that ended in baby’s death

    To the editor:
    I want to let people know how I feel about the mayor and the City of Lawrenceburg officials.
    I feel they are all incompetent to even have jobs where it concerns people’s lives. The police force has “Serve and Protect” on its cruisers, but it doesn’t seem that applies to everybody who lives in Anderson County.

  • LETTER: Maybe Donald Duck would do a better job

    To the editor:
    I just got the time to sit down to enjoy reading The Anderson News, one of my favorite things to do.
    My first thought was that this is a very good day.
    As I looked down the first page, there is Judge-Executive John Wayne Conway introducing an ordinance. Oh, gee wiz, what now.
    As I said, it did start out to be a very good day.
    What the heck is wrong with you people? Get a life or a new job.

  • LETTER: Paper ‘exhibits journalistic professionalism’

    To the editor:
    This letter is an opinion based upon reading Ben Carlson’s editorial in last week’s paper.
    Apparently, as Ben opines, there are a few unhappy, non-reading, non-subscriber types about.

  • LETTER: Baby-shaking story gave needed information

    To the editor:
    You and Judge [Charles] Hickman are to be commended for the Jan. 26 story about [Derek] Hartley’s baby-shaking offense.
    As your article indicated, Mr. Hartley was apparently ignorant about the effects of shaking a baby, as are most people who commit this offense.

  • LETTER: Chesser family says thanks

    To the editor:
    The family of Tony L. Chesser would like to thank everyone who donated, volunteered, attended or helped in any way with the [recent] benefit. There are so many companies, families and people to thank that the list would be endless. We could not have done this without you. We are blessed to have such wonderful family and friends.
    Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
    Jason and Danielle Chesser
    and family

  • LETTER: Teach our youth about respect, not selfishness

    To the editor:
    It’s unfortunate that we as a country have to endure so much as a free republic, referencing the lives taken (young and old) in Arizona from a mad man. When reflecting back to our forefathers, founders and ancestors — they engaged in battle, waging war for our freedom today. We knew their cause, their struggles — what be ours? We have become so divisive, and we reside in the “United” States.

  • LETTER: Lousy snow removal prompts change in vote

    To the editor:
    My family has lived in rural Anderson County for years. Never have we had a problem with our county roads like we have had this winter.
    On several occasions, my neighbors and I have called the county road department to complain about the condition of our roads, and every time we get the same answer: “We will get to it,” but it never happens.
    It has us all wondering where our tax dollars are going because they are not going toward our roads being taken care of.
