  • “Tear down and build completely new?”

  • Reader supports tax

    Editor:
    History fascinates me. The names involved may change but HISTORY repeats itself. John Arbuthnot Fisher (Jackie) is not a name remembered by many. It should be - as an example. Almost singlehandedly he pushed Britain in 1900 to 1910 from the age of sail, muzzle- loading cannon and wooden ships to the era of steel-hulled, dreadnought battleships, turbine engines, and breech-loading guns. But most importantly he established a new school, an educational facility necessary to teach the practical application of all aspects of seamanship, navigation, and engineering.

  • Tax dollars will pay for recall election

    To Editor and the People of Trimble County:
    It seems that Steve Miracle and the Trimble County Board of Education are going to opt for a special election to vote on the nickel tax. They are good at saying folks should be well informed. We agree.
    The nickel tax was voted down this past November.
    The special election will cost between an estimated 20-25,000 dollars. (The school board is responsible for paying this cost. They will use your tax dollars already paid for this cost.)

  • Reader urges vote for the nickel tax Tuesday

    Editor:
    On June 13, we have the opportunity to vote for the Nickel Tax in the special election. We can step up and be the heroes the children of our community deserve by joining other strong communities who recognize the wisdom of investing more to support their schools.

  • Donations welcome for Project Prom

    Editor:
    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. There has been a great sense of pride and community involvement in the planning and implementation of this rite of passage for Trimble County students. The buy-in from the entire community is astounding!

  • Historical society sends appreciation for turnout at 180 event

    Editor:
    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.

    Editor:

    Each year an astounding number of lives are lost on Kentucky roads due to some form of distracted driving.
