  • Christian leadership on display

    To the editor:
    It’s amazing to live in small town America where one can be reminded that “friendly, growing Lawrenceburg, Kentucky” can still be a place where the climate and culture of what made us great as a nation still exists.
    It was great to see the emotion of our small part of the world step forward when all of the controversy surrounding whether or not we could pray developed last week. It was wonderful for a football team to see the emotions of a coach who was willing to stand up for what he believes in as a Christian.

  • Parent offended by prayer policy

    This past Friday night at our high school football game I had the opportunity to join a group of people that wanted to pray. Our right to pray is under attack and those that are in leadership roles are not standing up for us. They are hiding behind excuses and running scared from the ACLU. Does praying really offend them? Does it really offend you? You say, yes? That is your right.

  • ‘Atta boy,’ support for last week’s column response to Herndon

    To the editor:
    I enjoyed reading Alex Chesser’s guest column in The Anderson News. I thought that what he wrote was thoughtful, well reasoned, and eloquent.
    I also felt that he showed significant courage in saying what he did, especially given the values that are common here.
    Given the sure to be controversial nature of what he wrote, I wanted to give him an “atta boy” and offer support (if he needs it) because of any negative feedback or personal attacks that may come his way because of it.

  • Goal of ACLU is to purge faith out of Kentucky life for good

    To the editor:

  • ‘Stupidity’ evident in Obamacare, Middle East

    To the editor:
    The dictionary defines stupidity as slow to learn or lacking intelligence. Practical applications of both definitions can be observed in the outcomes of the U.S. Congress and the White House. Salient examples abound.

  • Bikers more than meets the eye

    To the editor:
    Cruising down I-75 this past Tuesday, motorists gave a double take as they witnessed Hoss Cartwright breezing down the Interstate on his POW MIA Harley trike with a shower chair strapped to the passenger seat.
    Hoss, a highly decorated Vietnam vet and member of the Vietnam Vets Motorcycle Club (VNVMC) was escorted by Ed Peirce, also a Vietnam Vet, and member of the Second Brigade Motorcycle Club (SBMC) as well as Joanne Hunter, a Marine Corps Nurse Vet. They were headed to Berea to offer aid to a veteran brother with a broken leg.

  • Former school district bus driver Brothers made into ‘scapegoat’

    To the editor:
    Timmy Brothers was a good bus driver and an easy person to get along with on an adult and student level over his 20 years.
    He drove my children from 1992 to 1996 until we moved. I feel as though Timmy was targeted unfairly for a lesser rule broken and picked out among many bus drivers who merely got a tap on the hand for leaving children on the bus at the bus garage, children driven around for up to an hour after not being let off where they were suppose to be while parents or grandparents were frantic as to their whereabouts.

  • The importance of jury nullification

  • Downs’ coverage provides help for couple in need

    To the editor:
    A big thank you goes to News Editor Meaghan Downs of The Anderson News for her coverage of an unfortunate situation for the elderly couple in our county who were in need of assistance in getting their electricity turned on.
    The couple contacted our county’s charity group, Helping Hands--Heart of Community (HHHC), for possible assistance due to word of mouth from one of their neighbors.
    We are thankful that word of our group’s charitable work is getting around the county so we can help as many people in need as possible.

  • Poem speaks volumes about hearing loss

    To the editor:
    Loss of hearing is a big problem, but it is exacerbated when friends and family do not know how to deal with it.
    I was one who didn’t understand how important these tips are until I read this poem, written by Roy Bain in 1996, and related it to my own severe loss of hearing.
    Hopefully, sharing this with the community will encourage others to share it, too.
    When at first our hearing begins to fade, though the signs are foretelling, we may choose to evade.
