  • 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.

  • Community thanked for support

    To the editor:
    The inaugural Marie Crawford Garmon Scholarship Golf Scramble was held June 15 at Wild Turkey Trace Golf Course.
    The scramble committee would like to extend its sincere thanks to all the sponsors, participants and volunteers who make this event such a tremendous success.
    Because of the generosity of our community the event was able to raise over $10,000 that will be awarded in scholarships honoring Marie Garmon.  This scholarship will be given to Anderson County students beginning in May 2014.

  • Garmon fundraiser will benefit scholarship fund

    To the editor:
    The Anderson County Scholarship Fund is pleased to accept the generous gifts from all who participated in, contributed to or volunteered to assist the Marie Crawford Garmon Scholarship Golf Scramble held last month at Wild Turkey Trace Golf Course.
    To date, the Anderson County Scholarship Fund has received $10,759 in contributions in memory of Ms. Garmon, which is very much appreciated.

  • Media guilty of misusing power

    To the editor:

  • Son celebrates seven years cancer-free

    To the editor:
    While I was reading the June 26 edition of The Anderson News about the Relay for Life, I realized it was not mentioned that my son Keith Sea, who helped carry the Relay for Life sign, is a 7-year cancer survivor.
    Keith lost both of his grandmothers, Fannie J. Scrogham and Laura Kate Sea of Anderson County, to cancer.

  • Thanks for making Relay a success

    To the editor:
    On behalf of the American Cancer Society and Relay for Life of Anderson County, I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for helping to make Relay for Life 2013 held on June 21 a success.

  • Kentucky’s values not linked to ideologically elit

    To the editor:
    At this time of the year talk naturally turns toward patriotism.
    If comments I’ve encountered are any indication, many are confused as to what patriotism is. It is a grave mistake to think that patriotism is about devotion to any particular political theory; it is an even graver mistake to think it involves sycophantic praise for those currently holding government office.
