Today's Opinions

  • Make the heebie jeebies go away

    Today I have the heebie jeebies.
    I’ve been listening to a podcast (that’s like a radio program that you download from the Internet) about fear: Why are people afraid? How can they get rid of fear?
    The podcast began with a story about woman with Urbach-Wiethe disease, a rare condition that has three symptoms: a scratchy voice, raised dots around the eyes and absolutely no sense of fear.
    The part of her brain that registers fear is calcified. She can be happy, sad, angry, feel love and feel hate, but she can’t feel fear.

  • Writer invites readers to dance

    Editor:
    ROCK AND ROLL DANCE featuring music from the 50’s and 60’s from my private collection. Dance will be held at the Trimble County Fairgrounds in the Senior Citizen building, Friday August 18th, 7-9 p.m. Refreshments will be served. The dance is open to all ages, bring your dancing shoes as I take you down memory lane back in time when sock hops were common, and American Bandstand was watched by teenagers across America.  

  • Growth slow in Kentucky’s Road Fund

    Kentucky’s Road Fund isn’t growing as fast as some would like. But it’s doing much better than it was two years ago.

  • Summer reading season concludes

  • 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.
