Today's Opinions

  • Electronic voter registration

    Last week I made the historic announcement that all eligible Kentuckians will soon be able to register to vote online. I am proud to lead the charge to bring voter registration in Kentucky into the 21st Century.

  • Aviation industry big in Kentucky

    Most Kentuckians know that the commonwealth plays a major role in the auto industry – in fact, only two states produce more cars and trucks than we do – but far fewer are likely aware that our work in aerospace and aviation has overtaken it.
    Last year, that industry accounted for nearly $8 billion in exports, topping the $5.9 billion generated by our auto parts and assembly factories. Overall, about half of everything that Kentucky ships beyond our borders ultimately goes toward moving people and products over the ground and in the air.

  • Free/reduced lunch and Title I

    This week I would like to take the time to express to our parents and community the importance of the free and reduced (F/R) lunch program that exists in our schools. This a vital program in so many ways but I feel the numbers for Trimble County are inaccurately reported due to applications not being filed. I hope that knowing how F/R lunch rates impact students and schools we will begin to see more parents taking the time apply for the program.

  • WWJD? You might be surprised

    By Nancy Kennedy
    A few weeks ago, a woman called me with an idea for my column.
    She had just read “In His Steps,” a book written in 1896 that sparked the “WWJD” (What Would Jesus Do?) phenomena in the 1990s, the WWJD bracelets, bumper stickers, refrigerator magnets, et al.
    The book, written by Charles Sheldon, is a fictional story about a pastor who challenges his congregation not to do anything for an entire year without first asking, “What would Jesus do?” and then do that.

  • Organization head appreciative of efforts for Apple Festival

    Editor:
    Despite the sprinkles on Saturday, the 25th Annual Trimble County Apple Festival was a HUGE success!!!  
    My personal “THANK YOU” is extended to all COMMITTEE MEMBERS, VOLUNTEERS, and SHERIFF’S DEPARTMENT, for your untiring efforts to accomplish this triumph!  I am so blessed be a part of such a great community!!!  
    After a brief time for some much needed rest, I look forward to preparing for our 2016 FESTIVAL.
    REMEMBER – we are always looking for smiling faces. It’s never TOO early to volunteer!

  • Stumbo, KSP hope for increased officer safety

    When it comes to keeping us safe, it can be easy to take for granted those who protect us – until tragedy re-reminds us that their job can carry a steep price.
    That was very much on everyone’s mind last week, when House Speaker Greg Stumbo joined with the father of Kentucky State Police Trooper Joseph Cameron Ponder – who was killed in the line of duty on Sept. 13 – to pledge their support for actions that would help reduce the dangers frontline officers all too often face. It is a cause I support as well.
