  • 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.

  • Teacher supports school tax vote

    Editor:
    If I remember correctly, it went something like... “I want the truth!” (Tom Cruise) “You can’t handle the truth!” (Jack Nicholson) and so on. If I’m wrong, you can always Youtube it, I’m sure it’s there. But you get the gist, Right? So what am I talking about? Of course, that oh, so controversial Nickel Tax, and that looming question on whether or not I should support my county’s children.

  • Henry voter likes Michael Pate for judge

    Editor:
    Tuesday we will be asked to vote for Family Court Judge for the 12th Judicial Circuit District (Henry, Oldham, and Trimble Counties).
    I know firsthand what it is like to stand in family court. I’ve been there.
    I know how important it is to have a Judge who has integrity and a heart for families, a Judge who has the experience and knows family law, someone who has the temperament to rule impartially based on those laws, someone honest and forthright.
    Unfortunately, one candidate has made misleading statements during the campaign.

  • For the nickel tax

    Editor:
    For—is part of the word FORWARD. That word is dynamic and directional. It shows bearing. It has relational context to where you are now. It points to progress. It suggests advocacy. It means CHANGE. Our current Trimble County High and Middle Schools are antiquated. The block and brick facilities are younger than I am in years, but as learning places for today they are ancient; our teaching methods and learning processes have left them behind.

  • Taxed too much

    Editor:
    If the Trimble County High School needs so many repairs, then why didn’t they do the repairs instead of building big expensive fields? Seems like repairing the building would be more important.
    As Rick Rand pointed out, there is no guarantee that the state will give up any matching funds. If they do not, then we property owners are saddled with additional taxes for the next 20 years.
    Presently over 60 percent of our property tax is school tax, plus we have school tax on personal property, our phone bills and our electric bills. Enough!

  • Rotary Club expresses thanks for lunchwagon support

  • Retired judge Feeley endorses Goodwin

    After more than 10 years as the family court judge for Oldham, Henry and Trimble counties I accepted a position in Governor Bevin’s administration.  Upon recommendation from a local committee, Governor Bevin selected Doreen Goodwin as the new family court judge.  This was a strong and positive selection.
