  • Jan. 15, 1987 (30 Years Ago)
    Trimble County Judge-Executive Jack Couch reported at the recent meeting of Trimble County Fiscal Court that the county housed prisoners in the Oldham County Jail 622 days in 1986 at a cost of $14 a day, for a total of $8,714. Trimble averages about 15 prisoners per month being housed at the Oldham facility. Oldham is planning construction of a new regional jail facility to house prisoners in Oldham, Trimble and Henry counties.

  • There’s always something new to click on Facebook, and recently it’s been “What Has 2016 Taught You?”
    According to Facebook, here’s what I’ve supposedly learned this past year:

    “Forgiving is easy, it’s trusting them again that’s hard.”
    The folks or whoever/whatever at Facebook added, “The past year has changed you completely. You’ve seen your life from a completely different angle and this led you to new experiences.”
    Hmmm.

  • My car has become a hysterical mess. Like many cars it’s fully equipped with a plethora of indicator lights. For example, the car will tell me when it needs gas, an oil change, the seatbelts fastened and much more among an infinite variety of status updates. While it’s true that these lights can be extremely helpful for the motorist, my car has managed to take these helpful alerts to a new level.

    Each year, the Kentucky League of Cities (KLC) offers a vast array of educational classes, training, seminars, and webinars for city elected officials across the commonwealth. Mayor Todd Pollock recently attended the City Officials Academy sponsored by KLC in Lexington with newly elected Commissioners Tammy Liter-Scott, Gary “Newt” Johnson, and Johnathan T. Pollock. City Clerk Jennifer Thompson and City Attorney Amy Eversole also attended the training conference.

  • During the cold winter months, it is harder to find activities to do with younger children. It seems all too easy to allow a child to spend more time on the computer or in front of the television. However, these activities can get in the way of time together as a family and can even impede development of important kindergarten readiness skills. What are some ideas that families can do instead to help young children learn reading skills?

    We all have been hearing bits and pieces lately on drones, though most of us are clueless regarding details. When invited to speak at our Rotary Club about this new technology, Ralph Hance was most happy to accept. Hance is in charge of 4H programs for Trimble County Extension and has been teaching 4th, 5th, and 6th graders in the county the past three months (monthly “in-class” sessions) all about drones, how they work and potential applications.

    FELONY

  • I have been betrayed! I have been in considerable pain for the past week because of my conservative attitude toward wisdom teeth. I only grew three because tooth four resolved to play coy. Tooth four would attempt to grow and retreat. This pattern continued for years until we both grew tired of the game, it went into dormancy and we haven’t spoken since.
