  • Feed the Children Committee feeds the hearts of a special Trimble County couple with a passion

    Just a little over a year ago, Charles Reid attended a few local community meetings. He was seen at the Trimble CARES Coalition meeting, Network Providers meeting, and several local church meetings. He was very passionate with a heartfelt request. This man was on a mission. He wanted to be a part of the solution to prevent our Trimble County children from being hungry.

  • Making peace with God

    By MICHAEL JINKINS
    I wonder in this moment how many stars are slipping into oblivion. How many are being born.
    The turn, turn, turning of the universe goes on all around us all the time, and among and within us too. To everything there is a season in this ceaseless sea of changes, waves rising from the ocean only to fall back again.
    My thoughts have turned increasingly toward wisdom literature over the past year, as losses and griefs have accumulated.

  • Getting Jesus right

    Last week, the Rev. Doug Shepherd died.
    I met him in 2002 at his auto parts business.
    His dad was in the auto business too, and they were both Pentecostal preachers.
    I had been writing a story for the paper about the 100th anniversary of Pentecostalism, and although I had lots of history and background information, I wanted to talk to a real-live Pentecostal.
    At the time, “Brother Shepherd” preached on Sundays, but during the week he fixed cars.

  • LOOKING BACK

    April 23, 1987 (30 Years Ago)
    Trimble County senior Lora McCoy has signed a letter of intent to play basketball at Georgetown College. Last season Lora led the Lady Raiders with a 11.7 points per game scoring average. She was named to the North Central Kentucky Conference All-Conference Team, 31st District Tournament All-District Team and the All-Carroll County Invitational Team. Georgetown coach Susan Johnson said McCoy is the second Trimble girl to be signed to play basketball at Georgetown. Holly Kries played for Georgetown some years ago.

  • McConnell reflects on recent state visits

    As a Senator, my job requires that I spend many hours in Washington, but Kentucky is my home and I make it a priority to be in the state when the Senate is not in session.  Over the last two weeks, the Senate was not in session so I decided to again travel throughout the Commonwealth as I often do.  Not only is this a great way to engage with Kentuckians from every corner of the state, but it’s also a great way to ensure I can continue my work most effectively as Kentucky’s voice in the Senate.  

  • DO YOU REMEMBER?
  • Tobacco settlement money to assist hemp processor

    The landmark 1998 Tobacco Master Settlement Agreement has brought hundreds of millions of dollars to the Commonwealth over the past two decades. I keep up with how that money is spent—in agriculture, health care and early childhood education, as appropriated—and thought you’d enjoy an update, too.
    I was particularly interested to learn that a Kentucky-based company looking to process the fiber of around 750 acres of hemp and the jute-like plant kenaf has been approved for $381,500 in state tobacco funds to expand its processing facility.
