    By DAVE TAYLOR

    Trimble County Clerk Tina Browning has announced that the special election to determine whether county voters will accept or reject the local school board’s vote to levy a nickel tax will be held in conjunction with the statewide General Election in November.

  • Clutter

    No matter what you call it, clutter, mess, junk, or hoarding, I can produce the aforementioned with a snap of my fingers. I like to think of it as channeling my inner kangaroo rat. I also consider myself to be a recycler/reuser par excellance. My husband may see junk where I see possibility. After all, those mismatched beads may be drafted into a new role as part of a mixed media piece. Despite my well-crafted, logical argument in favor of keeping my materials I suspect some are being moved out of the house when I’m otherwise engaged.

  • Late summer cattle fly check can catch control breakdown

    Horn fly and face fly numbers will continue to build for a few weeks, which will put pressure on control programs. It is a good time to evaluate the pasture fly situation in your herd; check during the early afternoon on a sunny day (Figure 1) less than 100 horn flies per side and less than 10 face flies per head is a good target for animal protection. Consider an adjustment or supplemental measure if fly numbers exceed these guidelines.

  • Tax myths addressed

    Dear Readers,
    It is likely that moving forward over the next couple of months I will spend a lot of time writing about the Nickel Tax that is now set for election. I feel that it is important to use every opportunity available to me to assure that true facts are being released to the community. In a previous article I stated that it is the responsibility of every voter to know the facts on both sides of every issue. I hope to help with that process as much as possible.

  • JMK declared the winner after controversy-filled Columbia Cup

    J. Michael Kelly, driving the U-5 Graham Trucking, was named the winner of the 2016 HAPO Columbia Cup on Sunday after a controversy-filled final heat.
    Fans might have left the shoreline of the Columbia River thinking that Jimmy Shane drove the U-1 Miss HomeStreet Bank (Miss Madison) to victory.
    Shane had been driving in Lane 1 of the five-lap final, when he and Jean Theoret in the U-16 Oh Boy! Oberto — driving in Lane 2 — collided in the turn.
    Race officials immediately handed Theoret a one-lap penalty.

  • Missionaries of secularism target judge

    By Richard Nelson
    A Western Kentucky judge recently landed himself in hot water when the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) threatened a lawsuit over his refusal to perform a secular wedding. Trigg County Judge Executive Hollis Alexander was asked to perform nuptials for a Tennessee couple with an unusual request: they insisted the ceremony have no reference to God, someone Alexander believes is part of every marriage covenant.
