  • Convert old library into facility for Adult Education

    Editor:

    I’ve got an idea.

    Why not make the old library the new Adult Education Building?

    With the high level of high school children dropping out of school this poses a problem with the overcrowding at the present location. Sure, someone is going to have to pay for it but let’s concentrate on our young adults’ education.

  • Bob’s Bunch Walk to Defeat ALS

    Bob’s Bunch Walk to Defeat ALS

    Editor:

    Bob, along with 62 family members and friends walked on May 14, 2011 to raise money for research to cure ALS also known as Lou Gehrig’s.    We were one of the largest groups present and raised over $8000.   Through the hard work of volunteers that placed canisters in the community, sold cookbooks and requested donations, we were able to go over our original goal of $1000.    

  • Candidate’s campaign modest in finances

    Editor:

    I am John Lackey, candidate for Commissioner of Agriculture.

    It is appalling what candidates for public office feel they have to spend to win election. No middle class person can afford these sums. Larger contributors do expect something in return.

    My campaign hopes to show that voters appreciate a qualified, hands-on candidate who finances a modest appeal from personal resources. This lets an elected official call them as he or she sees them, without influence from groups seeking a personal interest.

  • Importance of foster parenting during May Natl. Foster Care Month

    Editor:

    May is National Foster Care Month, a time to shine the light on the foster care experience. Let’s start with some figures:

    More than 6,800 Kentucky children and youth are in out-of-home care, with 75 to 80 percent of those in foster care. Most are placed in temporary foster care due to parental neglect or abuse.

    The average age of a child in care: 10.7 years.

    More than 73 percent of the children/youth in care are white; 19.3 percent are black and 4.3 percent are Hispanic.

  • Do we really need a Weapons Ordinance?

    Editor:
    According to NRAILA website, (as of June 2010) “it is illegal for a person with a concealed carry permit to carry a firearm into any courthouse, soley occupied by the Court of Justice courtroom, or Court proceeding.”  Unless my understanding is wrong, courtroom and court proceeding should cover the issues of concern of Judge Conrad, Judge Stevens, or even Perry Arnold.

  • Letter to the Editor

    Editor:

    I was very fortunate to have attended the 2011 Washington, D.C., trip with the Trimble County High School junior and senior students on April 4-8. While there, I spent much time with the students and faculty sponsors. As a military veteran, the trip was my first to our nation’s capital. The trip could not have been more special, due to the wonderful students of TCHS.

  • Call local bee collector if hives unwanted

    Editor:

    I am writing in response to an article from The Spring Spruce-up, inserted in last week’s The Trimble Banner. The article called bees pests, (cutline under picture) and said “bees are among the many insects that return to wreak havoc on homeowners”
