  • Oldham resident encourages vote for Michael Pate

  • For the nickel tax

    Editor:
    For—is part of the word FORWARD. That word is dynamic and directional. It shows bearing. It has relational context to where you are now. It points to progress. It suggests advocacy. It means CHANGE. Our current Trimble County High and Middle Schools are antiquated. The block and brick facilities are younger than I am in years, but as learning places for today they are ancient; our teaching methods and learning processes have left them behind.

  • Taxed too much

    Editor:
    If the Trimble County High School needs so many repairs, then why didn’t they do the repairs instead of building big expensive fields? Seems like repairing the building would be more important.
    As Rick Rand pointed out, there is no guarantee that the state will give up any matching funds. If they do not, then we property owners are saddled with additional taxes for the next 20 years.
    Presently over 60 percent of our property tax is school tax, plus we have school tax on personal property, our phone bills and our electric bills. Enough!

  • Rotary Club expresses thanks for lunchwagon support

    Editor:
    The Bedford Rotary Club wishes to thank all who visited our food trailer at the courthouse last Tuesday, October 12.  This helps us to serve this community in several ways.  Look for us again next year starting in May.  If anyone would like to suggest something to improve our services with the trailer, just drop a note to Charles Liston at crlist@aol.com. We are always trying to get better!  Cheers for the coming holidays from all club members.

  • Retired judge Feeley endorses Goodwin

    After more than 10 years as the family court judge for Oldham, Henry and Trimble counties I accepted a position in Governor Bevin’s administration.  Upon recommendation from a local committee, Governor Bevin selected Doreen Goodwin as the new family court judge.  This was a strong and positive selection.

  • Oldham circuit clerk endorses Goodwin

    Editor:
    We, in Oldham, Henry and Trimble County, have been fortunate to have some extraordinary judges.

  • Kentucky abundant with fish, wildlife and nature sporting

    For hundreds of thousands of Kentuckians and out-of-state visitors, there is no place quite like the commonwealth when it comes to hunting, fishing or just experiencing all that nature has to offer.
    In a given year, more than 550,000 people fish, 347,000 hunt and another two million either boat on our rivers and lakes or observe our wildlife. Not surprisingly, these outdoor activities are a major driver of our economy, with the Kentucky Department of Fish & Wildlife Resources estimating the annual impact at nearly $6 billion.

  • Absence of politicians noted at LG&E hearing

    Editor:
    I noticed none of our local politicians saw fit to attend the public hearing concerning the ash disposal site proposed by LG&E. I guess they are not concerned with the desecration of a beautiful county or with the individuals who will be poisoned by it. Also, when a new sinkhole opens up under that liner, the ash will push through and poison the ground water. This very well may pollute Trimble and Henry County water supplies. It is easier to stop a potential problem than it is to fix it once the damage is done.
