  • Reader takes issue with state senator

    Editor:
    Our State Senator, Paul Hornback, co-sponsored SB152 which says exactly this: Amend KRS 6.716 to reduce the ethics training time requirement for members of the General Assembly from three hours to thirty minutes and remove CLE eligibility; repeal KRS 7.101 requiring sexual and workplace harassment training for General Assembly members.
    That’s right, Senator Hornback wants to eliminate sexual harassment training for legislators and reduce the total ethics training time to just half an hour.

  • Former resident writes to discourage alcohol vote

    Editor:
    I spent many fond years of my childhood in Trimble County. I appreciate how peaceful and safe I always felt. After living in Pulaski County for 20 years, I long for the peaceful atmosphere I felt growing up in Trimble County. I keep track of Trimble County events through The Trimble Banner and occasional visits. Although there have been many changes, I appreciate the lack of many vices I experience daily in my current hometown.

    To the Voters in the City of Bedford:
    I want to express my opposition to the sale of alcohol in our town of Bedford. We are already having problems with drugs, vandalism assaults and all that goes with these. We now and have for some time needed a town cop to help combat these problems. So please vote against the sale of alcohol in our town.

  • No respect for other people’s property

    Editor:
    My wife Dawn and I have lived in Trimble County for almost 17 years now on the old Adams farm property. At first, it was a peaceful, rural, beautiful neighborhood with country gravel roads, no water, no electricity. Slowly, modernization approached, some people moved away, some people died off. Henceforth, the second and third wave of people moved into our little piece of heaven.
