  • LETTER: Support needed for House of Trees

    To the editor:
    I urge everyone in Anderson County to attend House of Trees on Friday, Nov. 19 or Saturday, Nov. 20 at the former Bill Waits Auto Mall.
    In 2002, I organized, with the help of family and friends, Relay For Life in Anderson County. This has become the most anticipated annual event celebrating life, remembering passed loved ones and raising money to defeat cancer.

  • LETTER: Plenty of Veterans Day opportunities

    To the editor:
    I gladly accepted the two Veterans Day invitations I received, one from King Middle School, the other from the Christian Academy of Lawrenceburg.
    It was an honor to be at King Middle School with Patriots, young and elderly, that served our country at home and on foreign soil.
    With CAL, I celebrated Veterans Day at the Lawrenceburg United Methodist Church. The Rev. John McDaniel delivered a heartfelt, first-hand account of his US Army experience.

  • COLUMN: We need rain, but we don’t need meth

    Column as I see ’em …
    When the lack of rain turned brown the combination of weeds and grass that make up my lawn, I wasn’t particularly pleased.
    When my wife started compensating for the drought by hosing down her precious flowers and such with pricey city water, I edged toward anger.
    But when I hear this getting-to-the-point-of-ridiculous drought has the potential to halt deer season, I was downright steamed.

  • COLUMN: Have you met our new website?

    A member of The Anderson News team just recently underwent a facelift. No, it wasn’t me. And actually, it wasn’t even a human.
    That’s right, our website, www.theandersonnews.com, is looking a lot better these days — and younger, too, I might add.
    While there is always room for improvement, I think you’ll find it much nicer than anything we’ve had before — not to mention it’s a lot more user-friendly.

  • LETTER: Candidates made tea party proud

    To the editor:
    Yes, nationwide did prove to be rough for the Democratic Party in last Tuesday’s elections.
    Make no mistake: The Republican Party is on probation — you can say on last-chance status.
    If Republicans do not follow through on the side of the American people, they will no longer exist.

  • LETTER: Veterans Day service coverage was ‘very nice’

    To the editor:
    I just want to say that the article you did in the [Nov. 10 edition of the] newspaper about the Veterans Day service is very nice. I am so happy to see them getting some news coverage once again. You have been a good asset to the newspaper for our veterans and you are truly appreciated.

  • COLUMN: Story hour at library is for adults, too

    In this special edition, I thought it only fitting that I do a special column. It’s no secret that I love books — I’m a firm believer in lifelong learning.
    Lately, we’ve had an ongoing discussion at the library, with those on our strategic plan committees. I’m in the camp that people read for fun, aka recreation.

  • LETTER: Visit to Lawrenceburg educational, enjoyable

    To the editor:
    My wife and I were recently in Anderson County on a short vacation and family history search. William Henry Bell was a great-great-grandfather of my wife, and I understand there may still be some of the Bells living in the area.
    We greatly enjoyed our visit and are appreciative of the kindnesses and assistance we received from the people who work at the library and city hall.
    The local bakery was a delightful place and we enjoyed strolling Main Street.
