  • Nevada, rebirth of a free nation

    Editor:
    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

    Editor:
    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

    Editor:
    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. 

  • Citizens encouraged to attend meeting on waste landfill Feb. 20

    Editor:
    This is a request to the Citizens of Trimble County who are concerned about clean air, clean water, and the environment of our county to attend the Open Meeting that will be held by the Division of Waste Management on February 20th at 7:00 p.m. at the Trimble County High School gymnasium to answer questions and hear concerns regarding LG&E’s revised permit application for a 189-acre coal fly ash landfill.

  • County official voices pride in Lady Raiders

    Editor:
    What a thrill it was to go to Frankfort and see our Trimble County High School girls’ basketball team beat Murray on Wednesday night. Several hundred folks made the trip to see our “never-say-die” team overcome a much taller squad. Our ladies fought back over and over to win a two-overtime squeaker.

  • Renters Beware

    Editor:

    Before you give a deposit or sign a lease on a trailer in Bedford get a lot of close-up pictures before you move in. This is not necessary for Alvin or Lucian Sullivan, they are honest men and they will work with you on your rent to them. There are other ones out there just taking care of themselves and nothing else.

    If you would like more information about what trailers and where, please call me and I will gladly fill you in and share my five-month nightmare.
