  • 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.

  • Reader takes issue with plant pollution

    Editor:
    As usual, “our good neighbor” LG&E are caught polluting Kentucky’s water, as a newspaper article from The Cumberland shows.
    If the citizens of Trimble County allow this ash dump to go in, I can promise you they will pollute your air and water.

  • Kentucky Chamber applauds leadership for Right to Work legislation

    The Kentucky Chamber applauds Governor Bevin, Senate President Stivers and Speaker Hoover on their leadership to make right to work legislation a reality during the first week of the 2017 General Assembly and thanks all legislators who voted to ensure Kentucky is a state where business wants to locate.

  • Former resident writes to discourage alcohol vote

    Editor:
    I spent many fond years of my childhood in Trimble County. I appreciate how peaceful and safe I always felt. After living in Pulaski County for 20 years, I long for the peaceful atmosphere I felt growing up in Trimble County. I keep track of Trimble County events through The Trimble Banner and occasional visits. Although there have been many changes, I appreciate the lack of many vices I experience daily in my current hometown.

  • Bedford residents urged to vote “No” on sale of alcohol

    To the Voters in the City of Bedford:
    I want to express my opposition to the sale of alcohol in our town of Bedford. We are already having problems with drugs, vandalism assaults and all that goes with these. We now and have for some time needed a town cop to help combat these problems. So please vote against the sale of alcohol in our town.

  • No respect for other people’s property

    Editor:
    My wife Dawn and I have lived in Trimble County for almost 17 years now on the old Adams farm property. At first, it was a peaceful, rural, beautiful neighborhood with country gravel roads, no water, no electricity. Slowly, modernization approached, some people moved away, some people died off. Henceforth, the second and third wave of people moved into our little piece of heaven.

  • Candidate Stephen Emery seeks support in family court judge race

    Editor:

  • Teacher supports school tax vote

    Editor:
    If I remember correctly, it went something like... “I want the truth!” (Tom Cruise) “You can’t handle the truth!” (Jack Nicholson) and so on. If I’m wrong, you can always Youtube it, I’m sure it’s there. But you get the gist, Right? So what am I talking about? Of course, that oh, so controversial Nickel Tax, and that looming question on whether or not I should support my county’s children.

  • Henry voter likes Michael Pate for judge

    Editor:
    Tuesday we will be asked to vote for Family Court Judge for the 12th Judicial Circuit District (Henry, Oldham, and Trimble Counties).
    I know firsthand what it is like to stand in family court. I’ve been there.
    I know how important it is to have a Judge who has integrity and a heart for families, a Judge who has the experience and knows family law, someone who has the temperament to rule impartially based on those laws, someone honest and forthright.
    Unfortunately, one candidate has made misleading statements during the campaign.
