  • 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.   

  • Christian Academy coverage appreciated

    To the editor:
    On behalf of the Christian Academy of Lawrenceburg, thank you for the great coverage of the open house and dedication of our new school this past week.
    We are blessed to live in a community where our hometown newspaper supports folks who are working to make a positive difference in our “friendly, growing” piece of small town America.

  • School board stunners keep coming

    To the editor:
    I did not think I could be more stunned when the school board let the former ECC building and acreage go for $78,100 after the million dollar add on a few years back.
    But then I saw the article that the school board will be renting a portion of it back for $12,000 a year for the regional training center.

  • Democrats ‘mean’ to Romney trick or treater

    To the editor:
    I’m 11 years old and in the sixth grade from Lawrenceburg.
    I dressed up as Mitt Romney for Halloween and went trick or treating.
    About five people refused to give me candy. One old lady yelled at me and told me to get out of her yard.
    I think they were Democrats; they sure were mean.
    When I grow up I’m going to be a Republican, for sure.
    I’m kind of afraid to sign my name because they might come and try to get me.

  • Test scores: widening gap or bridge to future success?

    The word “gap” elicits two images when tied with measuring educational success.
    1. An impassable gulf.
    2. A sliver of space easily closed.
    Let’s talk about what “gap” really means.
    The Kentucky Department of Education recently released the test scores of its new assessment model, and Anderson County’s data indicated some seemingly contradictory results.

  • Tell magistrates to protect Earth and your wallet

    The Anderson County Fiscal Court will have a chance to fix a $320,000 mistake when it meets Nov. 20, and could use a little encouragement between then and now to ensure it does.
    It appears there’s a chance that magistrates who approved spending that amount on a recycling building have since thought better of the idea, and are starting to see government-run recycling for what it really is: a black hole where taxpayer dollars go to die.

  • Look to the garden for Christmas gift ideas

    Happy Halloween! I think October came in on a skateboard and went out on a jet pack! Time is just flying by and the next two months may well be the same way. That said, didn’t we have a beautiful St. Luke’s Little Summer! I so wanted to play hooky from work and be outside. Now it’s cold again! Don’t worry though, we should have one more warm spell, known as Indian Summer, before Thanksgiving.
