Today's Opinions

  • Hard work by students, staff push test scores to new levels

    Dear Readers,
    With the public reporting of state assessment scores today you have hopefully seen the great academic progress made by our students and staff through last year’s instruction. Achieving the classification of Distinguished as a school and a district is quite an accomplishment and our students and staff deserve recognition for the outstanding work they put in last year. Trimble County truly has great students and some of the best teachers anywhere around. Let me put this into perspective for you.

  • U.S. Civil Rights Commission: Religious freedom code word for discrimination

    By Richard Nelson

  • Kentucky’s online portals provide helpful info

    One of the country’s most enduring challenges is making sure that our citizens, both young and old alike, have at least a basic understanding of government and the role we all play in making it work.

  • Kentucky abundant with fish, wildlife and nature sporting

    For hundreds of thousands of Kentuckians and out-of-state visitors, there is no place quite like the commonwealth when it comes to hunting, fishing or just experiencing all that nature has to offer.
    In a given year, more than 550,000 people fish, 347,000 hunt and another two million either boat on our rivers and lakes or observe our wildlife. Not surprisingly, these outdoor activities are a major driver of our economy, with the Kentucky Department of Fish & Wildlife Resources estimating the annual impact at nearly $6 billion.

  • Athletic complex expenditures addressed

    Dear Readers,
    As we continue to get closer to Election Day I continue to hear of certain questions or statements that are made concerning the nickel tax. It has been my goal with my weekly article to provide as much factual information as possible and clear up misconceptions as I hear them. Please understand that there have been valid questions and concerns asked in the past months and I have been happy to have those brought to me. This week is no different. There are two items I would like to address this week.

  • Consider conversion of Trimble LG&E plant to gas

    By Charles R. Liston, Ph.D
     My residence is just above Wise’s Landing, just south of the Trimble generating station.  Thus, though I can view the Plant from our property, the proposed landfill does not directly affect me nearly as much as the unfortunate folks residing very close to this proposed development, and whose property values will no doubt plummet.  Some will no doubt have to move.

  • Absence of politicians noted at LG&E hearing

    Editor:
    I noticed none of our local politicians saw fit to attend the public hearing concerning the ash disposal site proposed by LG&E. I guess they are not concerned with the desecration of a beautiful county or with the individuals who will be poisoned by it. Also, when a new sinkhole opens up under that liner, the ash will push through and poison the ground water. This very well may pollute Trimble and Henry County water supplies. It is easier to stop a potential problem than it is to fix it once the damage is done.
