  • Contrasting TCHS graduating classes, 1946 vs 2015 (69 years)

    Editor:
    I was quite favorably impressed to learn this year’s Trimble County High School graduating class was composed of 97 young scholars! Wow! And they had won over $1.3 million in scholarships to continue their education. At the same time I am wondering if these new graduates appreciate that which they have accomplished and enjoyed during their years in Trimble schools.

  • Parent of child with lunch issue urges readers: sign petition

    Editor:
    For those of you following the school lunch petition, judge me however you want, but first know the facts. I’m the guilty parent “who only cares about her kids now,” and I’m “the piece of crap screwing a system.”  Not once have I ever been contacted regarding the situation.

  • Feeding our young ones

    Editor:
    Shame on you!!!!! Trimble County, Kentucky if you allow the school system to keep our young ones from having a good meal just because their parents can’t (or, yes in some cases “won’t”) pay their lunch tabs. To the school board and local politicians I say “shame on you” and to all citizens of Trimble County, I hope you will protect these children from this type of discrimination.

  • Reader troubled by front page photo

    Editor:
    As I perused my anxiously awaited Trimble Banner, my first words upon seeing the picture ‘Sewer Repair’ were “You have got to be kidding!”
    The picture shows Bedford Waste Water Superintendent Jim Hoskins operating a small tractor with a backhoe attachment on an incline. This by itself is not too newsworthy except that the picture shows the R.O.P.S. (Roll Over Protection System) is partially removed and therefore non-functional!

  • Kentucky retired teachers call for passage of HB 4

    Editor:
    Members of the Kentucky Retired Teachers Association (KRTA) call on legislators to pass House Bill 4 to protect the financial security of some 141,000 Kentuckians. The measure will restore the financial integrity of the Kentucky Teachers’ Retirement System (KTRS) in a fiscally responsible manner that protects taxpayers, active and retired teachers.

  • Resident seeks help supporting HB 372 regarding coal ash buffer zones

    Editor:
    Attention Please!!!! I need your help!!
    My home and family farm, along with several residential properties, are in jeopardy of being invaded by a new coal ash landfill. The state regulations only protect adjacent property owners with a “buffer zone” of 100 feet at present time. These landfills have to be 250 feet from almost everything else, but humans residing in their homes and properties, again 100 foot from a residential property line, and YES, there is something very wrong with that!!
