  • 1979 tax, school impact on economic development addressed by superintendent

    Dear Readers,
    In last week’s edition of The Trimble Banner there was an article regarding the 10 cent tax that was passed back in 1979. I have some additional information on that to share this week and then I hope that discussion can be put to rest.

  • Robertson announces as candidate in Board of Education race

    Editor:
    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

    Editor:
    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.

  • Striving for the best for Trimble’s students

    Editor:
    With all the changes in our community and schools, the one thing that stays constant is that we continually strive for what is best for our community, our students and their families.

  • Analysis of state’s traffic accident trends offered

    About a decade ago, Kentucky started to see a welcome trend as the number of highway fatalities began a steady decline.
    Totals that regularly exceeded 900 a year before 2007 dropped to 638 in 2013, a figure not seen in the commonwealth since the 1940s.
    Unfortunately, that was as low as it would go. The number of fatalities on our roads last year was almost a fifth higher than the benchmark set just two years earlier, and through the first seven-plus months of this year, it’s eight percent ahead of where it was last August.

  • Superintendent addresses ‘stream of misinformation’

    Dear Readers,

  • Open letter to God

    Dear God,
    As you know, last Sunday morning I posted the following on Facebook:
    “Dear God,
    I’m trying to control the universe as best I can, but I think I’m failing at it. It might be time for me to step aside and let you take over -- I hear you laughing! -- but I’m not sure I know how to do that, seeing as I’ve been doing this for so long.
    “So, please be patient with me and don’t smite me with boils or ugly hair.
    “Thank you, NK”

  • Kentucky State Fair has something for everyone to enjoy

    Kentucky State Fair has something for everyone to enjoy
    Editor:
    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.
