  • School leadership teams developing innovative schedule for student needs

    Dear Readers,
    Recently our district middle and high school leadership teams have been meeting to create an innovative school schedule that will better meet the needs of our students and more effectively utilize our limited resources. Somehow this has turned into a belief that the district is going to do away with Honors classes at the high school.

    Trimble County’s youthful Raider basketball team may have been outmatched in terms of experience and size in their 29th District Tournament tilt with top seed Oldham County last week, but the Raiders played hard from the opening tip to the final buzzer. Oldham, enjoying the home team and home crowd advantage with the game being played in Buckner, raced out to a 16-4 advantage after the first quarter of play and never looked back en route to a 82-49 win.

    “It’s been a long time coming!”
    Trimble coach Kerrie Stewart enjoyed a thrill of a lifetime Friday as she and her Lady Raiders finally cut down the nets from the Oldham County High School gymnasium after handily defeating longtime nemesis Oldham County, 64-48,  to claim the school’s third consecutive district title. This was a first, however. The previous titles had been won at North Oldham in 2015 and at home last year.

  • Preparing for Lent

    A few years ago, I decided to give up recreational shopping for Lent, the 40 days prior to Easter.
    For a week prior to Ash Wednesday, the beginning of Lent, I prepared for my shopping fast by buying new shoes and yet another pair of white pants, several tops, some earrings and a new purse.
    To prepare effectively, I rationalized, one must get one’s obsessions out of one’s system, sort of like the time I ate an entire box of Hostess Ding Dongs at one sitting the day before I went on a diet.


    Feb. 26, 1987 (30 Years Ago)
    Trimble County Judge-Executive Jack Couch proposed forming an economic development council at the Feb. 17 meeting of Trimble County Fiscal Court. Couch stressed the need for such a council to work with the Commerce Cabinet in Frankfort. The council would hold regular meetings and explore the county’s potential to attract industry. Couch stressed the point that Trimble County is in a good location, in a hub between three airports and three major cities in the Midwest.

  • Senate has busy week

    Visits from advocacy groups, a ceremonial bill signing, and rallies in the Capitol Rotunda, along with the bipartisan passage of bills, marked a busy Week Four of the 2017 Legislative Session. We were excited to welcome the children of Kentucky National Guard members from across the state for the First Annual Kentucky Military Kids Day. It was an honor to host these families who have sacrificed so much to serve our state and our country.
