    Carlson unfairly criticized over dentist’s two DUIs

    To the editor:

    My family and I have received on many occasions excellent care from Dr. Dahlen.

    My family and I, along with others, have watched with interest our local paper’s coverage of Dr. Dahlen’s problems with the law that endangered other citizens’ lives.

  • EDITORIAL: Time to cut KACo down to proper size

    Remember those old cries of “Break up Ma Bell!” back in the 1980s when the monopolistic telephone company practically ran the world?

    Although breaking up the Kentucky Association of Counties might seem a bit extreme, perhaps it’s time to trim a few of its overgrown branches.

    For those living under a rock over the past month, KACo has been under almost constant attack after the Herald-Leader exposed its lavish — and at times vulgar — spending practices.

  • COLUMN: Is it football season yet?

    Fall has always been one of my favorite seasons. There’s just something about the smell of dead leaves.

    Last year, for me though, fall brought with it a new list of reasons to fall in love.

    First downs. The wildcat formation. The red zone. Man-to-man coverage. Touchdowns!

    What can I say? The football bug got a hold of me and left a lasting bite with an itch that can’t wait to be scratched.

  • COLUMN: Sunlight, and how to keep yards mowed

    Column as I see ’em ...

    Had an interesting chat with the city attorney based on a note in last week’s column about the need for the city to crack down on mowing the yards of abandoned homes.

    He asked for what I would do about the problem, which I’ll gladly share here.

    First, I’d solicit bids from yard mowing services to cut the yards, eliminating the need to use city employees and freeing them to do more pressing work.

  • COLUMN: Rolling on rollover no more

    So, apparently I talk a lot.

    Those of you who have never met me may find that hard to believe, but those of you who know me know that once you get me started, I just keep going.

    Apparently last month I just kept going and going and going — at least on my cell phone.

    My parents still receive the paper copy of my cell phone bill, so imagine my surprise when my mother called last Thursday and told me my bill for that month was nearly $400.

    Yes, $400. It’s normally about $60.

    Paper should focus on Obama, not Dahlen

    To the editor:

    Picking up [last week’s edition of] The Anderson News, as we always do, was a true disappointment to my husband and myself.

    It’s not that the “Dentist charged” (you know the rest) story was in the paper, but where and how it was displayed. You must have needed this for your ratings.

    With what is happening, the destruction of our nation by [President] Obama’s agenda, is this the best you can do?

    Fourth celebration worth the wait

    To the editor:

    I would like to extend a generous thank you to those who made the rescheduled Fourth of July celebration on the Green a success.

    We survived the storm and were rewarded with an excellent band, a fantastic fireworks display and the opportunity to have the community come together for an affordable evening.

    Thanks to our mayor and the city of Lawrenceburg, and thanks to the American Legion Ladies Auxiliary for a fine parade.
