  • Ode to the greatly offended

    One night several weeks ago, my husband said good night, ran into the bedroom and locked the door — something he’s done dozens of times, always in a playful, good-natured way, always unlocking it within seconds.
    I usually laugh, except when I don’t, like that one night several weeks ago.
    That night, for whatever reason, I decided to be Greatly Offended.

  • Sponsors of Library Summer Reading Program appreciated

    Editor:
    Another great Summer Reading Program has wrapped up for this year at Trimble County Public Library, and it was such a busy and exciting time for all of us!
    Each year, the library works hard to provide an exciting and successful reading program to encourage students to read during the summer months. Reading over the summer makes sure that kids hold on to important reading skills and are ready to keep learning when school begins in the fall.

  • State ranks high among USA in river, rail transportation

    Over the last several weeks, there has been renewed discussion about two of Kentucky’s oldest forms of transportation: rivers and railroads.

  • What to do if you inherit someone’s 401(k)

    By Jason Alderman
    Talk about good news wrapped in bad: In the midst of grieving the loss of a loved one, you learn that you were named beneficiary of their 401(k) plan. Chances are you’ve got too much on your mind to make any sudden decisions about what to do with the money.
    However, don’t procrastinate too long. The IRS has ironclad rules, deadlines and penalties concerning inherited retirement accounts, which vary depending on what type of account it is. This column discusses inherited 401(k) and similar employer-provided plans.

  • Life lessons in the mud

    Although I personally don’t get the fascination with running races through mud, these days lots of people do.
    A few years ago, my two daughters did a mud race together. My oldest daughter, Alison, said the obstacles freaked her out and she doesn’t like climbing cargo nets and was leery of leaping over fire.
    “Otherwise, the mud was fun,” she said. “Once you commit to being muddy and know you’re going to feel gross and will be cleaning mud out of your ears for weeks after, it’s just plain fun.”

  • State programs aimed at Kentucky’s reforestation

    There is a saying that the best time to plant a tree is 20 years ago, and the second best time is now.
    Earlier this spring, state leaders joined with local Scouting organizations and utility companies to begin bringing that saying to life, and to do it in a way no other state has ever attempted. Their long-term goal, known as “Kentucky’s 20/20 Vision for Reforestation,” is to plant 20 million seedlings over the next 20 years.
