  • Historical society sends appreciation for turnout at 180 event

    Editor:
    We didn’t gather around the cake and blow out candles nor did we sing “Happy Birthday” but there were some who hummed as they viewed displays of Trimble County’s 180 years.
    Trimble County was formed by an act of the Commonwealth of Kentucky General Assembly in 1836 out of sections of Oldham, Henry and Gallatin counties. The county government was formally organized on March 27, 1837 and began on the first day of April of that year. The first meeting was held in the Bedford Methodist Church.

  • 2017 session was busy: 793 bills introduced

    Dear Readers,
    I am excited to share information this week regarding Trimble County Middle School.

It is a free program that provides educators with resources needed to bring personalized learning into the classroom.
    The mission of Summit is to prepare a diverse student population for success in a four-year college or university and to be thoughtful, contributing members of society.

  • Reader urges voters to sign petition on school tax recall

    To the Citizens of Trimble County:

  • Massie introduces bill to eliminate federal education department

    Should a presidential appointee and an army of bureaucrats in a remote office building thousands of miles away decide what values, morals and ideas to instill in your children? I think not. Of all the harmful things our government in Washington, D.C., does, micromanaging education is perhaps the worst.

  • Senate passes school legislation

    Early mornings turned to late nights and spirited debate echoed through the House and Senate chambers as we closed in on the final days of the 2017 Legislative Session in Frankfort. A flurry of bills were sent to Governor Matt Bevin’s desk this week, highlighted by measures to empower our Kentucky teachers and create better learning environments for our Kentucky students.
