  • Legislature works under ‘somber cloud’ after storms

    By the time you are reading this, a week will have passed since the monster tornadoes targeted many of our communities. I want to tell the victims that you are not alone; Kentucky stands with you. The Red Cross has been overwhelmed with Kentuckians’ generosity, so much so, that they are now asking for cash donations instead of material items.

  • Am I taking care of me or you?

    It is mistakenly accepted that self-care is selfish, if a person doesn’t take care of his or her own needs, eventually the result is burnout. This same person will resent others because they failed to sacrifice as they have. They have a tendency to lose themselves in service in the process of martyrdom and then get upset if others are not martyrs.

    Perhaps this is generationally passed down from the environment in which they were raised. Role models play an in important part in forming who a person becomes.

  • We are all so loved

    Oh, to be loved as Dennis Williams is loved!

    A week or so ago on a Sunday afternoon, two women I don’t know knocked on my door.

    They said they knew me, or at least knew me through my writing and somehow thought I could help them find their friend Dennis.

    They knew enough about me to deduce that I owned my own home and searched the county property appraiser’s website to find my address so they could come and see me in person because they were that desperate to find their friend who was missing.

  • McConnell pays tribute to Kentucky storm victims

  • Bookmobile shrinks but still on the job

    The Trimble County Public Library bookmobile is getting smaller, but will still be doing a big job. When the bookmobile broke down in January, the library discovered that the cost to attempt repairs on the 1993 bread truck style bookmobile was more than the vehicle is worth.

    Through the years, since the community first started bookmobile service, new vehicles and service were paid in part by state grants. Those grants are no longer available due to state budget cuts and bookmobiles are very expensive.
