  • County’s gifts & giving a blessing to students

    Dear Editor,
    I am always amazed at the spirit of giving and caring that I see on a daily basis in Trimble County. I am writing to thank all those that made the Back to School Fair a tremendous success. It truly does take a ‘village to raise a child’. There are so many that are fortunate to be able to give as there are also many that are fortunate to be in a position for all this kindness to be available.

  • Reader enjoyed steam locomotive history

    Editor:
    I hope everyone read the wonderful historical article by Dave Taylor on Steam Locomotives that was in The Trimble Banner on July 13. If not, dig that paper out and enjoy some important area history.

  • Food insecurity a national problem

    It is said that Kentucky is a poor state and, for many areas of the state, that is true. But poverty is not something peculiar to Kentucky. Neither is hunger.

  • It is well with our souls

    The news was horrific and sordid: Church staff member arrested for a sexually salacious crime.
    Sadly commonplace, it happens all over the U.S. -- you just never expect it to happen to your church.
    But last week, it happened to mine when our former worship director was arrested and charged with multiple sex-related crimes against minors.
    A local sheriff’s detective called him a “textbook predator.”
    We as a church loved him -- still love him. And we as a church abhor what he has done.

  • Farm bill affects us all

    By Mark Haney, President
    Kentucky Farm Bureau
    The first permanent farm bill was passed in 1938 when farming was much different than it is today. But the purpose of the bill still basically remains the same; to establish and oversee programs that maintain an abundant food supply and help farm families be successful.

  • Conventions offer economic boost to Louisville facilities

    What do the National Rifle Association, National Farm Machinery Show and Kentucky State Fair have in common? They were top draws for visitors to the Kentucky Exposition Center and Kentucky International Convention Center (KICC) in Louisville in 2016.

  • Ark encounters resistance

    By Richard Nelson
    The Ark Encounter celebrated its first anniversary this month but instead of fanfare and praise, some news media and protestors poured rain on its parade. The Biblical theme park, which consists of a life-size replica of Noah’s Ark based in Northern Kentucky, faced 75 protesters and criticism from a columnist who said the group promotes “fringe beliefs.” But hey, it’s the Ark, right?  Compared to criticism that Noah faced, I’m sure this modern-day rendition will weather the storm.
