Letters

  • LETTER: Sentencing calls justice into question

    I am appalled that the judicial system in Anderson County is so inconsistent.
    In the past month, there have been several stories where the punishment for crimes just makes no sense to me. The Rachel Lawhon and the Gordon Lunceford cases for example. Ms. Lawhon was found guilty of basically a cyber crime, no physical contact, while Mr. Lunceford was found guilty of physically abusing a child.
    Ms. Lawhon was sentenced to seven years; Mr. Lunceford’s sentence was probated.

  • LETTER: Thanks for prayers and support

    To the editor:
    We never know what will happen to us in this life, but God has a plan for all of us. On Saturday, Aug. 14, my life changed completely. The stroke I suffered has had such an impact on me, my family, friends and those close to me.
    I wish to thank the many churches, ministers, businesses, friends and everyone that contributed to the benefit.
    I especially want to thank you for the many prayers offered on my behalf — don’t stop praying.

  • LETTER: Book makes citizens proud to be from Lawrenceburg

    To the editor:
    I just finished reading “With Purpose and Promise” by K. Melissa (Etherington) Burton. For those who do not know, this is a book about Lawrenceburg, revolving around Kavanaugh School and the first basketball game ever played in Lawrenceburg.
    I would like to thank Melissa for writing such a supreme fiction, historical and classic book.
    The book was beyond my expectations as a reader. I hope that if you read “With Purpose and Promise” you will receive the great reward I did — pride being a citizen of Lawrenceburg.

  • LETTER: Thanks for making ‘Titan Fest’ a success

    To the editor:
    The PTO of Robert B. Turner Elementary would like to thank everyone who made this year’s Titan Fest such a wonderful success. We couldn’t have done it without the teachers, parents, and other volunteers who gave so generously of their time and resources. We would especially like to recognize those individuals and businesses who donated items for the auction and basket raffle.

  • LETTER: Generosity to vets appreciated

    To the editor:
    On behalf of all members of American Legion Post No. 34 and Auxiliary Unit No. 34, I wish to extend my heartfelt thanks to Open Bible Church (Jeff Tyler, pastor), Family Worship Center (Tony Andrade, pastor) and New Life Christian Church (Vern Huber, pastor) and the respective members of those churches in their generous recognition of all veterans by providing a delicious meal for those in attendance at the Veterans Day ceremony which took place on the Fairgrounds on Nov. 7.

  • LETTER: Support needed for House of Trees

    To the editor:
    I urge everyone in Anderson County to attend House of Trees on Friday, Nov. 19 or Saturday, Nov. 20 at the former Bill Waits Auto Mall.
    In 2002, I organized, with the help of family and friends, Relay For Life in Anderson County. This has become the most anticipated annual event celebrating life, remembering passed loved ones and raising money to defeat cancer.

  • LETTER: Plenty of Veterans Day opportunities

    To the editor:
    I gladly accepted the two Veterans Day invitations I received, one from King Middle School, the other from the Christian Academy of Lawrenceburg.
    It was an honor to be at King Middle School with Patriots, young and elderly, that served our country at home and on foreign soil.
    With CAL, I celebrated Veterans Day at the Lawrenceburg United Methodist Church. The Rev. John McDaniel delivered a heartfelt, first-hand account of his US Army experience.

  • LETTER: Candidates made tea party proud

    To the editor:
    Yes, nationwide did prove to be rough for the Democratic Party in last Tuesday’s elections.
    Make no mistake: The Republican Party is on probation — you can say on last-chance status.
    If Republicans do not follow through on the side of the American people, they will no longer exist.

  • LETTER: Veterans Day service coverage was ‘very nice’

    To the editor:
    I just want to say that the article you did in the [Nov. 10 edition of the] newspaper about the Veterans Day service is very nice. I am so happy to see them getting some news coverage once again. You have been a good asset to the newspaper for our veterans and you are truly appreciated.

  • LETTER: Visit to Lawrenceburg educational, enjoyable

    To the editor:
    My wife and I were recently in Anderson County on a short vacation and family history search. William Henry Bell was a great-great-grandfather of my wife, and I understand there may still be some of the Bells living in the area.
    We greatly enjoyed our visit and are appreciative of the kindnesses and assistance we received from the people who work at the library and city hall.
    The local bakery was a delightful place and we enjoyed strolling Main Street.
