• Letters to the Editor

    To the editor:

    A huge thank you to all those in our local government responsible for providing us with our recycling program.

    We finally have a program that should have been in this county long before now. It is a wonderful service and hopefully, our citizens will all participate.

  • Project Graduation seeks donations

    To the editor:
    First and foremost, we would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to each business, individual or group that has eagerly contributed to the 2016 Project Graduation event.
    If you have contributed in the past and have not been contacted this year for a contribution, we apologize and would like to take this opportunity to appeal to our community to help with the costs associated with this event. Project Graduation is funded entirely by donations and is coordinated by a group of parents of the 2016 graduating class.

  • Letters to the editor

    To the editor:
    Voters across the Bluegrass state will vote in our first Republican caucus March 5, which will select delegates to go on to the National Republican Convention in July.
    Our votes now count more than ever since we are casting them along with other early states.
    It is imperative that we choose the best and brightest candidate who will lead us into a safe and prosperous future and away from the precipice of disaster where our country now stands.

  • City should talk to train crews

    To the editor:
    As a native of Lawrenceburg, and a locomotive engineer, I’d like to offer another perspective regarding the blocked railroad crossing problem.
    First and foremost, no train crew ever wants to unnecessarily block a crossing. They’re doing their job; please don’t ever blame the crew.

  • From peaceful trail to time bomb

    To the editor:
    I am writing in regards to Highway 151, Graefenburg Road, here in Anderson County.
    My family and I have been traveling this road daily since 1983 and have watched it transform itself from a peaceful secondary rural road, into one of Kentucky’s most infamous highways of destruction.  
    The facts speak for themselves.
    Please allow me to share some historical facts concerning Highway 151 that many are not aware of.

  • Hoping Auditor Harmon will untangle Beshear-Stumbo mess

    To the editor:
    Thankfully we already have our new state Auditor, Mike Harmon, making our unfunded pensions a top priority as we start to dig ourselves out of the mess left by Beshear and Stumbo.
    Of course, Stumbo will be around a little longer, until Kentucky closes the deal by electing a Republican majority, allowing us to enter the 21st century.

  • Democrats aren’t Kentucky’s future

    To the editor:

    As we enjoyed our Christmas with above average temperatures, all the folks I came into contact with remarked how happy they were with the warm weather, particularly after the past two brutally cold winters.

    I then thought maybe this global warming nonsense might be true.

    Wouldn’t it be great to grow food later in the year and feed the hungry?

    But alas, like every other liberal Democrat promise, it was short-lived.

  • Juror speaks out on Nutgrass verdict

    To the editor:

    The letter said to report for jury duty. I can do this, I told myself. I’m honest and would do my best to be fair. Little did I ever dream I would be in court until 10 p.m.

    Interesting? One of the jurors whispered to me, “This is so boring. I wish they would talk about something else.” Fat chance of that happening, I thought.

    To be real frank, it is the worst job I’ve ever had. Next time I have jury duty, I’ll relocate to Canada.

  • YKK thankful for response

    To the editor:

    During the holiday season we often reflect on everything that we have to be thankful for. I want to publicly thank all the Anderson County residents who donated to our food and toy drive for Open Hands Food Pantry.

    The response from our community was overwhelming! I would also like to thank Walmart and their employees for allowing us to park our large box truck and solicit donations.

    In addition, Walmart was also generous enough to donate numerous items as well.

  • Churches going extra mile for Red Cross

    To the editor:

    This past Saturday, the American Red Cross held a class on operating a disaster shelter at St. Lawrence Catholic Church.

    We had over 20 volunteer workers, all now members of the Red Cross.

    The volunteers were from St. Lawrence and Ninevah Christian Church, both of which are shelter sites. We also had 13 people who were from Sand Spring Baptist Church, who came because of miscommunication. Their class will be after Christmas, and I have to apologize for the mistake.
