Today's News

  • Spring cleaning, random thoughts

    The other day my husband opened up both of the closet doors in our bedroom and pointed out that my stuff has progressively crept into his closet and that I should do something about it.
    “Like throw your stuff out to make more room for mine?” I asked.
    Um, the answer to that would be no.
    So, I got a plastic bag and started filling it with clothes I no longer wear, and then I started going through old file folders filled with notes and beginnings of columns. That always prompts a bits and pieces column, like today’s. So, here goes:

  • LOOKING BACK

    April 17, 1986 (30 years ago)
    The Trimble County Public Library staff will begin re-registration of patrons on April 10, 1986, according to Librarian Patti Abell. To re-register a patron needs only to come into the library or bookmobile to fill out an application. The patron will then be given a “borrowers card.” The card is embossed with a metal plate which states the borrower’s name. In the future no one will be allowed to borrow material from the Trimble County Public Library without presenting their borrower’s card.

  • Home Sweet Home: No better place

    As a small child I remember sitting on my grandma’s lap and listening to her talk about traveling across the United States with my grandpa, on the back of a BMW motorcycle.

However, my grandmother always ended her stories with a statement I didn’t quite understand. “After all of those beautiful places and nice people, the best part of a vacation was arriving back home where the grass was a little greener, people sweeter and the winding river bordering the county.”

  • Legislature hopes to solve differences over state budget

    This week, the General Assembly returns to the Capitol for a single day to wrap up the 2016 legislative session.
    While this time traditionally has been set aside just to consider whether the House and Senate should override any vetoes a governor might issue, we have begun in recent years to also use this time to vote on other bills that were unresolved before the veto recess. This year, the biggest of those is the state’s two-year budget.

  • Bedford bicentennial party, parade planned this Saturday

    The City of Bedford will be hosting a 200-year celebration party to commemorate the town’s founding in 1816. Records show the settlement now known as Bedford was organized with elected officials and streets were laid out late in 1815 with a gentleman named Jack Pryor being elected as Mayor of Bedford. Kentucky Secretary of State’s records show the town was founded Feb. 6, 1816.
