  • Kentucky abundant with fish, wildlife and nature sporting

    For hundreds of thousands of Kentuckians and out-of-state visitors, there is no place quite like the commonwealth when it comes to hunting, fishing or just experiencing all that nature has to offer.
    In a given year, more than 550,000 people fish, 347,000 hunt and another two million either boat on our rivers and lakes or observe our wildlife. Not surprisingly, these outdoor activities are a major driver of our economy, with the Kentucky Department of Fish & Wildlife Resources estimating the annual impact at nearly $6 billion.

  • Absence of politicians noted at LG&E hearing

    Editor:
    I noticed none of our local politicians saw fit to attend the public hearing concerning the ash disposal site proposed by LG&E. I guess they are not concerned with the desecration of a beautiful county or with the individuals who will be poisoned by it. Also, when a new sinkhole opens up under that liner, the ash will push through and poison the ground water. This very well may pollute Trimble and Henry County water supplies. It is easier to stop a potential problem than it is to fix it once the damage is done.

  • Open letter from Judge Goodwin

    Editor:
    My name is Doreen S. Goodwin and I am running to keep my position as Family Court Judge for Oldham, Henry, and Trimble Counties. Recently, one of my opponents filed a complaint against me with the Kentucky Judicial Campaign Conduct Committee for use of the phrase “Governor’s Choice” in my campaign materials, alleging the use of these words is misleading to the public. I wish to take this opportunity to clarify my use of this phrase and explain my intent to the voters in my use of these words. I apologize for any confusion. The truth is as follows.

  • Resident offers thoughts on proposed LG&E coal ash landfill

    Editor and Citizens of Trimble County:
    RE: Permit No. 112-00008
    LG&E professes to be a good neighbor, but their only motive is PROFIT. They pay relatively little in taxes and only employ a handful of Trimble County residents.
    In return, they want to pollute our air, land and water along with damaging our roads. The new ash disposal site will do all of these. Then, in 25 years when they are done, they will leave us with their poisons.

  • Robertson announces as candidate in Board of Education race

    Editor:
    I became a permanent resident of Trimble County 18 years ago. Born and raised on a tobacco farm in Henry County, I spent the majority of my working career in the Louisville area. This agricultural oasis, tucked away in a bend of the river, provided relief from the streets and expressways of city life. Through friends and neighbors, church and family, I’ve found a home and a community to care about.

  • Pate announces as candidate in Family Court Judge race

    Editor:
    After much prayer, discussions with my wife, Debby, other family members and friends, and with the encouragement of many people in the community, I have decided to seek the office of Family Court Judge for Henry, Oldham and Trimble Counties.
    As many of you know, becoming Family Court Judge has been a 10-year effort for me. I believe that my background in sociology and my many years of practice in family law uniquely qualify me for this position.

  • Striving for the best for Trimble’s students

  • Kentucky State Fair has something for everyone to enjoy

    Kentucky State Fair has something for everyone to enjoy
    Editor:
    Since 1902, people have traveled the Bluegrass State to come together at the Kentucky State Fair and celebrate being a part of our great Commonwealth, while discovering the very best of what it has to offer.
    The Kentucky State Fair performs the delicate balancing act of honoring the state’s rich history and reflecting the ever-evolving lives of those who call it home. At the heart of the Fair is the celebration and recognition of agriculture and our roots as an agrarian state.
