• The Anderson News proving newspapers still have a pulse

    To the editor:

    I’m a resident of Frankfort and a regular reader of your paper.

    Those who have proclaimed the death of print journalism need to start reading small-town papers. You are maintaining the faint pulse of a sickly body.

    I like your commitment to local stories; it’s a welcome relief from the national coverage.

    Tip O’Neill’s theory that “all politics is local” is spot on. [Editor Ben Carlson’s] style reminds me of Mike Royko, one of my favorite columnists.

  • Writer wrong about faith columnist

    To the editor:

    When I opened Aug. 2 edition of The Anderson News, I was shocked and more than a little dismayed to read the letter to the editor headlined “Columnist’s condemnations drive away non-believers.”

    The columnist referred to here is me. I can tell you in all sincerity that condemnation of anybody is not nor ever would be my agenda. My job is to teach the gospel of Jesus Christ. One of the old preachers said before he can preach the love, grace and forgiveness of Christ, he had to preach the law, judgment and repentance.”

  • Columnist’s condemnations drive away non-believers

    To the editor:

    Two things captured my immediate attention as I read church page columnist Gary Thompson’s piece in the July 5 edition of The Anderson News.

    One is quite true as he expressed a personal fear: “My fear is that I come across as being only negative or admonishing.” That is actually true as each week if I were an unbeliever and not a believer in Jesus Christ, I would walk away with a feeling of condemnation following the readings.  

  • Carter dealing in alternative facts

    In her column last week, Teri Carter claimed to provide facts about former president Obama’s eight years in office.

    Instead, she provides mostly just her opinion, along with alternative facts. mostly opinion and/or alternative facts.

    Here are the real facts.

    The Dow

    The Dow was at 7,949 at the end of day on Obama’s inauguration. It closed at 19,804 on his last full day in office. That is not tripled.

  • Trump, McConnell, Paul, Barr owed thanks for efforts on coal

    To the editor:

    For the Kentucky Coal Association, the election of President Donald Trump gave us hope. Instead of vilifying coal like President Barack Obama did, the Trump administration recognizes that coal is a reliable and affordable source of energy.

  • Throw $20s on road, not your trash

    To the editor:

    I have lived in the town of Lawrenceburg for 53 years and have seen many changes. We have gone from Bill Black’s lakeside restaurant to a booming town of hamburger, pizza, chicken, Mexican and Chinese places.

    Recently, we had a new Bojangle’s open. No one told me that they were open yet … I didn’t have it on the radio, nor did I see it on television or in the newspaper.

    All I had to do was drive up and down the road or try to mow someone’s yard or deliver their mail.

  • Editorial cartoon, Carter’s column, were ‘deeply offensive’

    To the editor:

    I feel compelled to comment on the cartoon by Terry Wise and comments made by guest columnist Teri Carter in the most recent edition of The Anderson News.

    In case you missed the cartoon, it featured a toe tag of dead KY Republican governor’s lacking common sense.

    Guest columnist Teri Carter continues to criticize as well as bash our President Trump.

    Thank God for freedom of speech and expression of such for all Americans.

  • Media complicit in Obamacare

    To the editor:

    When Obamacare was pushed through eight years ago the majority of Americans did not want it. Yet the media, working with Democrats, did everything they could to sell it.

    That plan was full of holes and famously included the lie of the year that you could keep your plan and keep your doctor.

  • Come pray for America this Thursday at the Courthouse

    To Christians of Anderson County:

    “Jesus answered and said to them, When it is evening you say, It will be fair weather, for the sky is red; and in the morning, It will be foul weather today, for the sky is red and threatening. Hypocrites! You know how to discern the face of the sky, but cannot discern the signs of the times.” (Matthew 16:2-3)

    Do you have any doubt that we are living in perilous times?

    We are proud to be one of few programs within the state that offer a Challenger Baseball Division for children with special needs.
