  • Team encourages others to make difference

    To the editor:
    The Anderson County High School Volleyball Team participated in 2012 Relay For Life event held on Friday, June 8 at the American Legion Park.
    Coach Bobby Hardin and Coach Courtney Delong encouraged the teammates to embrace team bonding by actively participating in this community outreach event for a worthy cause. Together the team helped raise $360 and increase awareness to celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against this disease.  

  • Resisting the Nanny State

    I don’t like when someone tries to hold my hand.
    Particularly, the government.
    Or really, anyone that makes it his or her business that I mind my own.
    Recent news stories wormed their way into my head the last few weeks, stories that continue to irritate me like bug bites that just won’t stop itching.
    For example, New York.  My birthplace. The land of sea salt air and sand and the most delicious pizza you’ve ever tasted.

  • An eye-opening look at your county tax bill

    It comes in your mailbox every fall, an envelope from the sheriff’s office that contains a yellow slip of paper replete with a dizzying array of numbers.
    If you’re like most people you glance at the bottom line, mumble an expletive or two and shove it into a folder for use when filing an income tax return.
    In these days of 30-year mortgages that include an escrow account for property taxes, an alarming number of people don’t really take a moment to digest that slip of paper, which tells us much more than a grand total.

  • County changes require checking vehicle insurance

    For the past five years Anderson County has been a test county for a new insurance program for vehicles.
    This program was implemented statewide on June 5.
    What does this mean to you?
    By law, your insurance company is required to send a list of Vehicle Identification Numbers (VIN) that they have insured to the Department of Insurance each month.
    These VIN numbers are entered into the statewide computer database.

  • Rabbits and turtles are no match for determined farmers

    Ever have one of those days? I had one of those days, this past Sunday.
    It started out just great, with perfect weather for all my outdoor chores.
    I started at 7 a.m. and got all kinds of things done, projects completed and everything looked good. I even got to run a few errands off the farm and scored a great new indoor mini greenhouse, to boot.

  • Assistance needed for Wall of Honor

    To the editor:
    The Veterans Wall of Honor is in need of funds for maintenance of landscaping.
    We are asking for the community’s help with this beautiful area of Lawrenceburg.
    No veteran has ever had to pay for his or her name to be placed on the Veterans Wall.
    Donations may be mailed to Veterans Wall of Honor, P.O. Box 672, Lawrenceburg, KY 40342.

  • Support urged for community theater

    To the editor:
    If you haven’t heard of them before, I want to introduce you to the Anderson Community Theater.
    This group of actors consists mainly of our local residents with a lot of talent.

  • Checklist to ensure child is kindergarten-ready

    Is your child ready for kindergarten?
    In Kentucky, children are admitted to kindergarten by age. If a child is age 5 by Oct. 1 of the school year, then the child is eligible for kindergarten.
    In Kentucky, school readiness means that each child enters school ready to benefit from early learning experiences that promote a child’s success. Beginning with the 2013-14 school year, all kindergarten students in Kentucky’s public schools will be screened with the BRIGANCE Kindergarten Screen.
