    The members of Trimble County Fiscal Court reached a consensus during a special meeting Friday to obligate funds necessary to construct an animal shelter on property located near the Valley View Landfill.

The Kentucky Humane Society in January informed the two counties that, effective June 30, they would not be renewing contracts to provide those services.

  • Teaching your children about money

    As national and international economic uncertainly lingers, parents have an opportunity to talk with their children about finance, budgets and money. This helps children gain a deeper understanding of how money allows families and other units, such as organizations or governments, to function. The big-picture financial news headlines provide an opportunity to teach children how those stories apply on a very personal level— to their own family.

  • Autumn apple season is approaching

    Fall is my favorite time of year. I love the cool, crisp mornings followed by warm sunny afternoons. Haze is usually less this time of year. Sometimes, it seems you can almost see forever on a sunny fall day. Another reason I like fall is because of one of my favorite fruits, the apple. Who doesn’t enjoy hot apple cider to warm the insides on a cool fall day. On my birthday, each December, my wife Carole already knows what I want for dessert, apple dumplings! She makes the best!

  • Learning about state’s insects

    Insects are encountered just about anywhere, making them a fascinating learning tool for youth. They also provoke a variety of reactions, from “ick” to “cool.” For kids who react favorably, starting a 4-H entomology project is a valuable way to learn more about Kentucky insects. Youth learn how to collect, label and display insect specimens, which they can use to participate in state fair projects.

  • Rand reflects on Sept. 11

    There are only a handful of days in which a whole country collectively remembers what it was doing.  Some have been high points in our history, like V-E and V-J Day at the end of World War II and Neil Armstrong’s first steps on the moon.  And some have been moments we wish had never occurred, like Pearl Harbor, President Kennedy’s assassination, and the tragedies of September 11, 2001.

    For those old enough to remember that last date, it seems hard to believe that 10 years have slipped by since that cool and clear morning.
