Today's Opinions

  • From ‘limo’ to ‘lightning’

    Editor’s note: Nancy Kennedy is on vacation this week. Her husband requested this column from 2004 about his 1968 Ford Falcon station wagon be rerun. He still misses that car. Nancy doesn’t.

    Although a brand new Ford F-150 “Lightning” pickup truck tops my husband’s list of dream vehicles, his eyes still mist whenever anyone mentions ‘the limo.”

  • State’s communities feature festive fall celebrations

    Fall may technically have begun early last week, but for many Kentuckians, it really started about a month ago, when the season’s first wave of festivals arrived.
    Our nation has always used the harvest period as a time of celebration, and these gatherings, many of which draw tens of thousands of tourists, seem to grow more popular with each passing year.

  • CARES coalition holds September meeting

    The Trimble CARES Coalition met at the Trimble County Cooperative Extension Office for their monthly meeting Sept. 24, 2014.

  • Legislators going ‘Back to School’ nationwide

    Starting this week, hundreds of state legislators from across the country will begin visiting classrooms to kick off the 16th annual “America’s Legislators Back to School Program.”

    Sponsored by the National Conference of State Legislatures, this event initially lasted just one day but now extends through much of the school year.  While most students tour the state Capitol at least once, often during a field trip in elementary school, this program brings state government to them.

  • DNA research and your diet

    Anew field called “Nutrigenomics”is devoted to the study of the effects of foods on genetic behavior. By analyzing how different foods interact with specific genes, researchers have confirmed that the food you eat directly influences the metabolic programming of your cells.

  • Whether it’s things or feelings, hoarding is never good for you

    When we moved to Florida from California 23 years ago, we did so with only the things we could fit into two vehicles.

    That meant getting rid of 15 years’ worth of possessions to start over, which was both sad and exciting.

    I especially hated parting with the coffee table my husband had accidentally autographed. He tends to write hard and had been signing checks. After that, at a certain angle you could see a half-dozen “Barry Kennedy” indentations in the table top.

  • Coalition spreads the word on substance abuse prevention

    On Aug. 27, the Trimble CARES Coalition met at the Trimble County Extension Office. During the meeting Director Denise Hall and Seven Counties Prevention Specialist Patty Gregory shared resources and data that they received while at the CADCA training this summer.

    Trimble County Attorney Perry Arnold shared information on a recent conference including raising awareness on clothing, such as “710” means OIL upside down referencing marijuana oil and DGK indicating drug use.
