  • 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.

  • Mission Yard Sales ends Saturday

    To the editor:
    Sovereign Grace Church would like to thank the kind people of Anderson County for donating to our Missions Yard Sale this summer.
    With your help we have raised over $20,000 that will go to the spread of the gospel around the world. This money will help to send out mission teams, translate the Bible for people groups who do not have the Bible in their language, and support missionaries on the field.

  • New recycling system inconvenient

    To the editor:
    I visited the new recycling bin at Walmart today and saw that I would have to take my unsorted recycling from bin to bin and sort it at the site in the hot sun. Plus, I couldn’t reach the bin doors to open them.
    I brought it all home and put it in the regular trash.
    Will people who didn’t recycle when it was picked up at their house now get excited about recycling and schlep it to one of the centers?

  • Wake up and start recycling

    To the editor:
    If you had to bury your trash and garbage in your own back yard, would you recycle?
    I often ask this question, especially to those I know do not recycle. The answer I usually get is, “Of course.”  
    I continue my questioning with, “Well, then, why do you not recycle now?” The answers are varied: I do  
    not want to sort all that stuff. I do not a have a blue recycle bin. It’s too much trouble. The list gets longer. None of these reasons can be substantiated.
