Trimble County

  • Trimble spared in redistricting

    Henry and Carroll counties are no longer part of the state’s 26th Senate district. Those counties, which, historically, have been served by Republican Sen. Ernie Harris, now fall into the 20th District, represented by Sen. Paul Hornback, also a Republican.

    Population growth statewide, as documented by the 2010 U.S. census, means districts for both the state House of Representatives and Senate were redrawn, approved and signed into law by Gov. Steve Beshear last week. Lawmakers are still working to redraw the six districts for the U.S. House of Representatives.

    For The Trimble Banner

    I enjoyed the recent article published in The Trimble Banner on Pearl Harbor so much. It brought back so many memories of my brother and the impact it had on my family at that time.

    Several men from our county were named in the article and among them was my brother Richard “Dick” Willhite. Although I was small at the time it was a time that knowing my “hero,” my oldest brother, was in danger and the concerns we had for him even got through to a young girl.
