    Project Prom began in the late and has been successful for years as it offers a fun and exciting way to celebrate a substance-free prom night for our juniors, seniors and their guests.

    We didn’t gather around the cake and blow out candles nor did we sing “Happy Birthday” but there were some who hummed as they viewed displays of Trimble County’s 180 years.
    Trimble County was formed by an act of the Commonwealth of Kentucky General Assembly in 1836 out of sections of Oldham, Henry and Gallatin counties. The county government was formally organized on March 27, 1837 and began on the first day of April of that year. The first meeting was held in the Bedford Methodist Church.

  • Reader takes issue with state senator

    Editor:
    Our State Senator, Paul Hornback, co-sponsored SB152 which says exactly this: Amend KRS 6.716 to reduce the ethics training time requirement for members of the General Assembly from three hours to thirty minutes and remove CLE eligibility; repeal KRS 7.101 requiring sexual and workplace harassment training for General Assembly members.
    That’s right, Senator Hornback wants to eliminate sexual harassment training for legislators and reduce the total ethics training time to just half an hour.
