    Special to The Trimble Banner
    While attending a recent school board meeting, I learned about an important activity to resurrect and improve the green house at Trimble County High School.  With other school developments in 2014, the original greenhouse needed to be removed. The importance of having a “teaching” greenhouse for a school so intimately tied to agriculture in our county stimulated an immediate search for a new location, and a planning process for how to fund and construct the facility.

  • (Frankfort, KY) – Beginning with the upcoming school year, children entering kindergarten must be five years old on or before August 1.
    Up until now, the cutoff was October 1.
    The General Assembly changed the law in 2012, based on the premise that younger students may not be ready for kindergarten and may not get off to a successful start. The change takes effect for the 2017-18 school year, for which schools will soon be registering students.

    Special to The Trimble Banner
    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?

  • 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.
