Today's Opinions

  • Fall is time to celebrate apples, high school marching band

     This week I’m celebrating the Anderson County Band’s big win in Nelson County. They swept the competition, coming out grand champions.

  • Support needed for adult education

    I am writing to encourage the Anderson County community to support adult education, an investment in America’s future.

    I want to let the citizens of Anderson County know that the week of Sept. 24 to 30 is Adult Education and Family Literacy Week.

    The Adult Education Program in our community is located on the campus of Bluegrass Community College here in Lawrenceburg.

  • Class of ’77 thanked for generosity

     To the editor:

    On Saturday, Sept. 16 the Anderson County High School class of 1977 held its 40-year reunion, attended by about 30 graduates.

    These folks unselfishly took it upon themselves to collect among those present a cash contribution to the Anderson County Scholarship Fund.

  • Boy Scouts shine brightest during cook-off

    Column as I see ’em …

    The real bright spot for me from this year’s Burgoo Cook-off didn’t really involve any of the participating teams. It was a pair of Boy Scouts who joined us on the tiny section of the Lawrenceburg Green that wasn’t swallowed nearly whole by a circus tent. (More on that in a minute).

  • Legislature should stop funding its pension

    To the editor:
    Let me address your statement in your last editorial that retired teachers/state employees were not the only ones getting ripped off.
    Your implication is that the taxpayers have or will be ripped off by paying the pension funds that are owed to retirees.

  • Wright’s guest column a ‘slap in the face’

    To the editor:
    I’ve just finished reading the guest column written by James Wright in last week’s paper, calling for the removal of the Confederate monument in front of the county courthouse.
    I consider it a slap in the face to all Anderson County.
    First of all, there is no racial divide in our county. We do not consider each other whites, blacks or any other color. We are Americans and we show each other the respect that we each deserve.

  • Fire district tax increase ‘disappointing’

    To the editor:
    I have followed the story of the Anderson County Fire Protection District’s efforts to raise taxes since it was first published in The Anderson News.
    I appreciate the desire and willingness of the volunteers involved with the fire district to help others in the community. I wish to appeal to that desire in asking that the ACFPD reconsider its decision to raise taxes to the maximum allowable rate per Kentucky law.
