  • King’s road to victory not an easy one

    To the editor:
    Last Tuesday, Kim King was overwhelmingly re-elected to represent Anderson County in the Kentucky House of Representatives. She was able to do this with many powerful entities working hard against her. After all was said and done, Kim King not only won her seat district wide, she won Anderson County, even though her opponent Kent Stevens was from Anderson County.

  • Tell officials to support recycling building

    To the editor:
    On behalf of the Anderson County Environmental Community, I would like to provide some factual information to clear up the editorial from Nov.7, “Tell magistrates to protect Earth and your wallet.”
    Last spring, the committee, with support and approval from both the county and city, applied for and received a $125,000 grant to purchase equipment to improve Anderson’s recycling program.  

  • Time to do away with constables

    Column as I see ’em …
    It looks like Kentucky is on its way to doing something that should have been done decades ago: getting rid of the elected position of constable.
    A report released last week by the Department of Criminal Justice Training was sort of a Capt. Obvious moment for many who already knew that the position is about as useless as a bucket without a bottom.
    The report calls constables “irrelevant as an arm of law enforcement,” which is actually much kinder than the description I would have offered.

  • Try healthy alternatives to holiday favorites

    Cool weather has arrived, the stores are full of holiday decorations and turkeys are in the freezer. The holiday season is almost here.

  • War is never the right answer

    To the editor:
    A world in peace is something that some of us cannot imagine. I know that as long as I can remember there has been war in some part of the world that affected me in some way.
    How can we establish a lasting peace you may ask? Some may say by raging more wars to gain the advantage over other countries. This is the wrong answer. War only creates more war.

  • Hospice an integral community resource

    To the editor:
    My mother was very ill with heart failure and in the hospital. She wanted to go home. Her doctor said she could with Hospice care. This was the first I had heard of Hospice.
    Their efficiency (combined with sensitivity and compassion) was so welcome at a confusing time in my family’s life. Hospice care combined the highest level of quality care with emotional and spiritual support.

  • Sheriff thanks community for Trick or Treat success

    To the editor:
    On behalf of everyone involved, I would like to thank all those involved for making Trick or Treat on Main a huge success.  
    Combining DARE Project Safe Street with the City’s Treat or Treat on the Green along with businesses and churches got us the result we wanted, the best Halloween event ever.
