  • Like it? Don’t like it?

    I’m already on the record for being in favor of the Trimble County Board of Education’s plan to possibly build a new baseball/softball/tennis complex for high school athletes.
    Personally, I think it would be a boost to the entire community, and would have a positive impact on students at the high school and, eventually, in the lower grades.

    Texting and driving? You may want to pull over.
    On Jan. 1, a state law went into effect to help Kentucky law enforcement officials reduce the dangerous problem of “distracted driving.”
    Anyone caught texting while driving will face a $25 fine for the first offense, plus court costs. Subsequent offenses carry a $50 fine, plus court costs.
    The law also prohibits anyone younger than 18 from using a cell phone, even just to talk, while driving a vehicle. The same fines apply to violators.
