• Feeley votes sought

    The upcoming election for the 12th Judicial Family Court Judge is important for the families in Henry, Oldham and Trimble Counties.  Having worked in our court system in excess of 27 years, I have observed our judges during this time and wish to express my respect and feelings about the necessary dedication required to do this job well as our judges have done over the years.  

  • Be an informed voter this November 4th

    It will soon be time to vote in the upcoming election.  Before you vote did you know you can go online and check out the voting record of candidates?  We did just that and you can too.
    At the end of this letter will be an internet address you can access to check the facts we have found.
    Here is what we found.  Senator Mitch McConnell’s voting records.
    AGAINST raising minimum wage.  Many people are working two or three jobs just to live, allowing no time for families.

  • Nevada, rebirth of a free nation

    Just the other day in Nevada Americans stood strong and I truly believe history was being made and a rebirth of a free nation is at hand. Sad to say it will take a little longer because the un-American government backed off when we the people did not cow under.

  • Reader responds to minimum wage letter

    In response to Tod Griffin’s letter (Feb. 13, 2014) about not increasing the minimum wage, Tod said that it was a fact that raising the minimum wage would fail miserably as an anti-poverty policy but Tod fails to cite proof. Everything I’ve seen says the opposite.
    He claims that “Raising the minimum wage would in fact reduce job opportunities for young minorities” but again fails to cite facts supporting this often repeated lie.

  • Postmaster requests keep mailboxes clear

    Severe wintery weather conditions can create challenges for everyone, especially those whose job requires them to work outside in the elements. Postal letter carriers are among those who brave the snow, ice, sleet, and freezing rain to provide service to the community.  
    Letter carriers can be the first to visit someone’s home before snow removal or salting begins. That’s why I’m asking Trimble county residents to include the regular upkeep of residential mailboxes as part of any snow and ice removal routine.
