  • Assist others mourning losses this holiday season

    To the editor:
    2012 is winding down and across this great land we celebrate the Christmas holiday and prepare to usher in a new year.
    This is a joyous time of year for most of us as we soak up the sights, sounds, and scents of Christmas. The excitement in our children is contagious and the warmth of our families and friends coming together brings joy to our hearts. Many of my most precious memories as a child and adult originated from the splendor of this time of year.

  • Toys for Tots says thanks

    To the editor:
    We wish to extend our gratitude to all the generous people of Lawrenceburg for all of the donations of money and toys to the Toys for Tots program.
    Without your generous donations many children would not have a happy Christmas this year.
    A special thanks to Walmart of Lawrenceburg for allowing us to set up and collect toys.
    God bless to each and every family, and Merry Christmas and happy New Year.

  • Many thanked for help with play

    To the editor:
    I am 44 years old and I have never felt the spirit of Christmas more than directing the show “Yes, Virginia The Musical.”
    I’d like to first start by thanking The Anderson News and you, Mr. Carlson, for giving the cast of Virginia the wonderful newspaper props that you so graciously printed and donated to us.

  • Enforce gun laws we already have before making more

    Column as I see ’em …
    It was sadly predictable that before the 20 children murdered last week in Connecticut were even buried, politicians were using their tiny corpses as soap boxes to spew their anti-firearm foolishness.
    Lost in their zeal to run roughshod over the Constitution is the obvious answer, which is that until schools are no longer declared gun-free zones, whack-a-dos like the guy in Connecticut will take turns wading into schools filled with children and shooting them like fish in a barrel.

  • Holiday traditions should put smile on face, song in heart

    Welcome to the fastest time of the year. I know the watches and clocks and smart phones still run on a 24-hour day, but those hours seem to get shorter, a lot shorter, around Christmas.
    The only way to fight this battle is good planning and creativity. Well, a song in your heart and a smile on your face helps, too.

  • Know these facts when buying, selling vehicle

    As we approach the end of the year, I chose topics that relate to that very subject.
    Buying, selling vehicle at end of year
    If you have sold or intend to sell a vehicle before the end of the year, be sure that the buyer transfers the vehicle at the county clerk’s office. Just signing the title and having it notarized will not remove the vehicle or the tax obligation from your name. Whomever’s name is in the AVIS System (state transportation system) on Jan. 1 of that year is responsible for the property tax on that vehicle for that entire year.

  • This week, let’s have fun with numbers

    It’s the 12th day of the 12th month, 12 years into the 21st century.
    Those who really like numbers, like these. Plus, they’re just fun to write. One-two, one-two, one-two. Flip the one and two around and you’ve got the first day of winter. Oh, I’ve got more.

  • For homebound, a visit can be best gift of all

    The holiday season is a time to not only give gifts that you can buy or make yourself but also to provide special service and visits to people you love.
    The homebound often appreciate a visit as much as having a gift. With limited access to the outside, a person’s world can shrink considerably and he may feel disconnected from people and the community.
