  • Clarity needed on firefighter issue

    To the editor:
    Editor’s note: The following was written to Daniel Werfel, acting director of the Internal Revenue Service, and printed here with the author’s permission.
    Dear Acting Commissioner Werfel,
    I am writing you because of concerns I am hearing from my constituents in the Sixth District of Kentucky regarding the treatment of volunteer fire departments under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), specifically with respect to the Employer Shared Responsibility Provision.

  • EMS team was ‘guardian angels’

    To the editor:
    Anderson County has one of the best EMS teams in the country and I personally want to thank them from the bottom of my heart.
    On Thanksgiving Day, my family and I had a great meal and a wonderful family gathering.
    After all of my babies and grand babies had all left, I had to go off and do something.
    To mess up the rest of my day, I had a very serious heart attack and I actually thought, “Well, this is all she wrote.” I felt like I was dying and later found out that I really was.

  • Gaines no victim of sinister court system

    To the editor:
    Your conclusion last week in your “Column as you see ’em” that David Gaines was “railroaded” into pleading guilty is somewhat of a stretch.
    You make it sound as though Mr. Gaines is the innocent victim of a sinister court system picking on the little guy. No. I don’t buy that one.
    Gaines’ troubles are the result of a series of his bad choices. He made a bad choice when he combined drinking alcohol with using firearms.

  • Pipeline opponents resorting to fear tactics

    To the editor:
    I’m quite tired of all the hysteria surrounding the Bluegrass Pipeline.
    Neighboring states like Ohio are participating in the next American energy revolution and actually celebrating new tax revenue from the transport of natural gas and its byproducts coming from the Utica and Marcellus shale. For once, we are overtaking radical regimes as top producers of energy.

  • Bluegrass Pipeline not a done deal

    To the editor:
    Many Anderson county residents have heard about the [proposed] Bluegrass natural gas liquids pipeline.  Locally, there have been community meetings where residents have voiced various concerns, dozens of articles in various newspapers across the state, and 10 counties passing resolutions against the project.
    Landowners, residents and lawmakers have joined together across the Bluegrass to protect their land and their communities.   

  • Adopt a senior pet in November

    To the editor:
    November is senior pet month. Why not think about giving an older dog or cat a home? There are many advantages to adopting a senior companion animal.

  • Obama’s blunder is destroying America

    To the editor:
    As Americans we toil daily to provide for ourselves and for our family … ah, the pursuit of happiness for many.
    Some of us may be less fortunate or challenged to work for a wage so we seek outreach from other entities.  

  • Thanks for ‘Trick or Treat on Main’

    To the editor:
    We would like to thank the mayor and others for allowing us to trick or treat on Main Street on Friday night.
    It was a blessing meeting other church families and businesses of the community. It was a great turnout and I pray we have this event for years to come.

  • America needs another revolution

    To the editor:
    Our founding fathers anticipated many potential threats to their envisioned democratic republic and included safeguards in our Constitution.
    Since 1787, three threats to America have evolved to dire status and require safeguards. Namely, career politicians, special-interest money and immoral conduct. Of the three, immorality is the greatest threat.
    Morals are manmade. They boil down to simple right and wrong.

  • Cops & Rodders a great event

    To the editor:
    The annual Cops & Rodders 2 2013 Car Show to benefit the Kentucky Sheriffs’ Boys & Girls Ranch and the Anderson D.A.R.E. program’s Shop With a Cop with Sheriff Troy Young hosting the event was a huge success.
    We send our sincere thanks to Sheriff Young, the Anderson County Sheriff’s Office and all those supporting this event and helping out. Your support and help of this event ensures we continue to reach Kentucky’s youth in a positive manner.
