    Trimble County Fiscal Court has prepared and submitted a draft solid waste management plan to the Division of Waste Management, Kentucky Natural Resources and Environmental Protection Cabinet.

  • Years ago I visited with a woman who sold biblical toys, action figures of Bible characters like Moses, David and Goliath and Jesus.
    The Jesus doll, about twice the size of a G.I. Joe, had movable fingers and joints and if you pressed a button on Jesus’ back he talked.
    As the woman demonstrated, Jesus started reciting Bible verses -- and wouldn’t stop.
    I was there to interview the woman for a newspaper story and tried to have a conversation with her but couldn’t concentrate because Jesus wouldn’t stop talking.

  • Walker’s Bend where I began my life was rural, really rural, not gentrified country or suburban—rural. The main difference between rural and city, you have more bathroom options.

  • When Kentucky State Police Trooper Josh Lawson entered Bedford Rotary’s meeting room on Aug. 16 — in full uniform including dual weapons — we thought surely we were in trouble.  What law(s) had we violated?  Well, isn’t that the first impression many of us have when confronted by a police officer?  A kind of negative feeling about our police at first blush?

    I love animals. I love all animals. I firmly believe that all creatures were created for a reason no matter how elusive that reason may appear.

    I love the outdoors. I hate to stay inside. I love sunshine, moonlight, thunderstorms and everything in between.

    Given this particular set of attributes one may assume that nothing in the outdoors at any time would disturb me. One may assume that, but one would be wrong.
