Her parents, Richard and Jane Beckner, still reside in Trimble County.

  • I have a credibility problem. The medical profession has an axiom which advises, “When you hear hoof beats look for horses, not zebras.” In other words, look for the most likely explanation and not the unordinary. In my case when I hear hoof beats I think of unicorns! Once an idea is in my head, no matter how unlikely, it captures my imagination and reduces me to a novelty.

  • Over 3000 vehicle-deer collisions occur each year in Kentucky, and autumn is the peak season.  According to the Kentucky State Police, almost half of all such collisions occur in October, November and December.  November is the peak month by far, averaging around 750 collisions annually.  Three people were killed in each of the past two years.

  • It’s hard to believe that winter is right around the corner. If you’re a horse owner, you should already be preparing your winter hay supplies.
    How do you estimate the amount of hay you will need? If you have mature horses at maintenance level, you want to feed a mainly forage diet.
    The estimate would be similar to a 1,100-pound horse eating 2 percent of its body weight. That equals 22 pounds of hay per day. Feeding for 120 days, December through March would equal 1.3 tons of hay per horse.

    Mayor Todd Pollock had received a complaint from a citizen regarding the upkeep of a family member’s grave. Pollock responded that the caretaker of the cemetery had been in the hospital and unable to perform his duties.
