  • Trimble obligates funds for animal shelter

    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 animal shelter is a joint project between Trimble and Henry counties to provide dog control, sheltering and disposal for their respective counties. 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.

  • The great cover up of 2011

    In the continuing saga of my ongoing battle over household décor with my husband, this time it’s the back sliding glass door.

    But before I get to that, let me back up to say that in the first 30 or so years of our marriage my husband rarely expressed an opinion about how to decorate the house except for one hard and fast rule: I could choose any color to paint the walls as long as it was antique or Navaho white.

    Other than that I had free reign — and I love to reign.

  • LOOKING BACK


    30 Years Ago (Sept. 10, 1981)

     W.R. Abbott, Bedford postmaster, presented Coleman Sibley and Glenn Allen Fisher pins representing at least 25 years of service for the Federal government not only as postal service but military service and other federal civilian service.

    School started September 1, and students returned to all new facilities this year. Trimble County took advantage of federal funds and passed a tax levy to become one of the few places in the nation to build a new school plant.

  • A decade later a time to remember and continue the fight

    The acts of terror perpetrated on the United States a decade ago (has it really been 10 years?) were an unconscionable effort by people who hate our way of life to bring America to her knees. But the way America went to her knees was not quite in the manner the merchants of evil had envisioned.
