  • 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.

  • Let’s focus again on state motto

    The News-Enterprise
    At the conclusion of a vile presidential campaign between two major party nominees with dubious track records and questions of character, America is ready to be done with politics for a while.
    But, as always, lessons can be learned.
    First among them: Amer­ica still belongs to the people and not pollsters nor politicians.

  • $1.9 billion needed for infrastructure improvements

    Other than during a rare boil-water advisory, most of us don’t think twice when we turn on the faucet. We just expect clean and plentiful water to be there.
    For about 95 percent of Kentuckians, that’s exactly what we get each and every day from the 400-plus public and community water systems that serve the commonwealth. These systems meet or exceed health-based standards at an incredible rate of 99.73 percent.

  • 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.

  • A dangerous duck

    The phrase “lame duck” was first used in London in the 18th century.  It was slang for a stockbroker who could not pay off his debts.  In this country, it was later used to describe a politician who has lost re-election or is not running again, but who stays in office for the remainder of his term.  In fact, President Lincoln was one of the first to use the term here in the United States, when he said, “a senator or representative out of business is a sort of lame duck.  He has to be provided for.”
