  • Resident seeks help supporting HB 372 regarding coal ash buffer zones

    Editor:
    Attention Please!!!! I need your help!!
    My home and family farm, along with several residential properties, are in jeopardy of being invaded by a new coal ash landfill. The state regulations only protect adjacent property owners with a “buffer zone” of 100 feet at present time. These landfills have to be 250 feet from almost everything else, but humans residing in their homes and properties, again 100 foot from a residential property line, and YES, there is something very wrong with that!!

  • Kentucky retired teachers call for passage of HB 4

    Editor:
    Members of the Kentucky Retired Teachers Association (KRTA) call on legislators to pass House Bill 4 to protect the financial security of some 141,000 Kentuckians. The measure will restore the financial integrity of the Kentucky Teachers’ Retirement System (KTRS) in a fiscally responsible manner that protects taxpayers, active and retired teachers.

  • 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.
