  • 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.
    Mary E. Sea

  • 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. 

  • Fly the flag, but please do it right

    To the editor:
    I’m sure every American would agree that they love to see Old Glory proudly flying at every state building, institute, college, school and business, but when is it time to take flags down to be replaced?
    Good question.
    As a veteran I would say as soon as it begins to tear or unravel from the whipping winds or from age.

  • Sorry for disrespecting Conway, staff

    To the editor:
    The statement “It’s hard to be humble” is true.
    A couple of weeks ago I called Judge-Executive John Wayne Conway’s office. He was not there at the time, so I spoke to his secretary.
    After giving her an earful of problems, I soon realized how disrespectful I was to her.

  • Editor Carlson should keep ‘falsehoods’ out of newspaper

    To the editor:
    I would like to make some comments concerning an article in the June 5 edition of The Anderson News and Editor Ben Carlson’s column in the June 12 edition titled “Search for .22 round a living nightmare.”
    Gene and Kathy Linzy stated that the IRS sent them 88 inappropriate questions and only gave them two weeks to answer them. That is over 4.5 hours per question and to me seems sufficient. If there is any way for you to make those questions public, please do so.

  • Instead of building swimming pool here, join effort in Franklin County

    Now that the talk of making the dream of a swimming pool a possible reality in Anderson County has begun again, I’d like to offer a citizen’s suggestion related to our county needing a facility to provide activities for both our children and adults.
    Most of us would agree that our county is in dire need of a facility that would provide a place for youth to hang out and spend time with friends, and most of us would prefer that their activities be of a healthy nature.

  • Tired of school system, local government dumping on us

    To the editor:
    For the past few years while reading The Anderson News and Anderson County politics, I’ve got angry, just shook my head and made a few comments on Facebook about our so called government.
    During the last election, I will have to say that [editor] Ben Carlson WAS NOT my favorite person, but since the election I have really enjoyed his editorials, mainly because the truth hurts.
    Last week’s editorial should win him an award, especially if you live in Anderson County and pay taxes.

  • Wars, ongoing scandals cost Americans dearly

    To the editor:
    Terrorism alone has never been nor will it ever be a threat to our way of life. The application of self-serving dishonesty in Congress and the White House is the only real threat to America.

  • Yes, Mrs. Clinton, it does matter

    To the editor:
    According to Hillary Clinton on the subject of Benghazi, her attitude of “What does it matter?” kind of says it all about many things going on in our government in recent times.
    Starting with Benghazi, for many of us who have lost loved ones through violent acts, it does matter how and why it happened, and what could have prevented it. Maybe to Mrs. Clinton these types of things are mundane and just an everyday occurrence. Though I can’t speak for her or her conscience, her remark whether intentional or not was rather callous.
