  • Transportation plan gets nod from state House

    When it comes to getting from points A to B, few states do as good a job as Kentucky.

    It certainly doesn’t hurt that our central location puts us closer to more Americans than any other state, and only three states have more miles of navigable waterways. We’ve added to that by having not one but two of the country’s busiest cargo airports, and we’re also among the top 10 states when counting the number of railcars originating here, a statistic that sheds light on the true size of our manufacturing and coal industries.

  • USDA working to help feed hungry children in the summertime

    As we near the end of another winter, many parents and children are already beginning to think about summer. Sadly, though, the thought for some parents is: “How will I feed my children?”

  • 'Called to a disruptive cure'

    Whenever my husband starts a sentence with, “Before you say no, hear me out,” I know I’m headed for a heart attack or two.

    It’s usually about an idea he has for a change around the house, from knocking down a wall to rearranging the furniture.

    No matter what the change is, I immediately hate the idea only because I hate change of any kind.

    I’ve had the same hairstyle for 30 years, the same job since 1992, the same husband since 1975. The furniture in my house hasn’t changed since we moved in 16 years ago.

  • Exchanging fears for peace

    “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:6-7).

    Recent events in the course of our daily lives create worry and stress to fill our minds. News reports of violence, hate, and anger create a sense of anxiety in us.

  • Returning Raiders looking for success

    With all but one player returning from last year’s team the Trimble County Raiders show promise of an improved season on the baseball diamond this spring.

    The 2017 Raiders soldiered through a 7-17 campaign overall, winning only 5 of 21 games against Eighth Region foes. The Raiders closed their season abruptly in the opening game of the postseason, falling 11-0 in five innings to South Oldham in 29th District Tournament.
