    The Trimble Banner
    The Trimble County Lady Raiders appeared to have their backs to the wall in the softball season opener against Owen County last Wednesday. With their team own 8-0 after an inning-and-a-half of play, Trimble fans were starting to get the sinking feeling that this game might be over with pretty quickly.

  • When God is ‘too small’

    A few years back, I read about a woman who titles her years according to what she wanted to accomplish or see happen during the year.
    One year might be “The year of overcoming” or “Hope will see me through.”
    That one particular year was titled “Your God is too small” after a lengthy conversation she had with a friend about all the things she doubted would ever happen, from family members coming to faith in Christ to whether she would ever or could ever sell her house.

  • Lesser known measures also receive the attention of House and Senate

    Each legislative session, the public understandably focuses most of its attention on the biggest issues facing the General Assembly, which this year range from addressing a heroin epidemic to modernizing rules for the telecommunications industry.
    There are always other measures, however, that also deserve recognition because of the positive impact they will have on the state. With the House and Senate returning to the Capitol early this week for the session’s final two days, it is worth noting many of those bills that are set to become law.

  • Giving back to the community

  • New ‘print on demand’ vehicle registration saves time, money

    FRANKFORT, Ky. – Some time- and cost-saving changes to Kentucky’s vehicle registration system are being implemented in county clerk offices across the Commonwealth.
    The vehicle registration system is changing to “print on demand” decals for license plate renewals. Instead of clerk offices having to stock booklets of preprinted decals, the new decals are printed at the time of registration.
