• Resident offers thoughts on proposed LG&E coal ash landfill

    Editor and Citizens of Trimble County:
    RE: Permit No. 112-00008
    LG&E professes to be a good neighbor, but their only motive is PROFIT. They pay relatively little in taxes and only employ a handful of Trimble County residents.
    In return, they want to pollute our air, land and water along with damaging our roads. The new ash disposal site will do all of these. Then, in 25 years when they are done, they will leave us with their poisons.

  • Robertson announces as candidate in Board of Education race

    I became a permanent resident of Trimble County 18 years ago. Born and raised on a tobacco farm in Henry County, I spent the majority of my working career in the Louisville area. This agricultural oasis, tucked away in a bend of the river, provided relief from the streets and expressways of city life. Through friends and neighbors, church and family, I’ve found a home and a community to care about.

  • Pate announces as candidate in Family Court Judge race

    After much prayer, discussions with my wife, Debby, other family members and friends, and with the encouragement of many people in the community, I have decided to seek the office of Family Court Judge for Henry, Oldham and Trimble Counties.
    As many of you know, becoming Family Court Judge has been a 10-year effort for me. I believe that my background in sociology and my many years of practice in family law uniquely qualify me for this position.

  • Kentucky State Fair has something for everyone to enjoy

    Kentucky State Fair has something for everyone to enjoy
    Since 1902, people have traveled the Bluegrass State to come together at the Kentucky State Fair and celebrate being a part of our great Commonwealth, while discovering the very best of what it has to offer.
    The Kentucky State Fair performs the delicate balancing act of honoring the state’s rich history and reflecting the ever-evolving lives of those who call it home. At the heart of the Fair is the celebration and recognition of agriculture and our roots as an agrarian state.

  • Judge Goodwin announced for November election

    The retirement of Family Court Judge, Honorable Timothy Feeley, presented an opportunity for me to apply for the vacancy he left in the Twelfth Judicial Circuit. I am honored to be the Governor’s choice for the position of Family Court Judge for Trimble, Henry, and Oldham Counties. I am grateful for this decision and the confidence in my experience as a family law practitioner and Master Commissioner.

  • Reader objects to LG&E permit application

    I object to the permit being filed by LG&E for construction of a low hazard class A dam for storm water management at the special waste landfill being constructed by LG&E.
    This will be on a tributary of Corn Creek, one of the few federally listed “Outstanding Resource Waters” in the State of Kentucky.
