  • Courtney Tigue Baxter best choice to protect our community

    Editor:

    When campaigning for Campbellsburg Mayor two years ago, my primary concern was the safety and welfare of city residents.  As Mayor, I have worked with citizens, local law enforcement, and the court system to protect individuals and their property.  Keeping our community safe is and will always be of the utmost concern to me.  This is why I feel compelled to endorse Courtney Tigue Baxter for Commonwealth’s Attorney 12th Judicial Circuit that serves Henry, Trimble and Oldham Counties.

  • Writer advocates vote for Bill Adkins

    Editor:

    Bill Adkins, who is running in the 4th Congressional District, believes the middle class has long been under assault by special interests. Middle class citizens do not have paid lobbyists protecting them—billion dollar corporations do. Without a strong middle class, the nation cannot survive. Bill Adkins will work for solutions to help defend and rebuild the middle class.

  • ‘A time to mourn...’

  • Forgiveness and ‘forgetness’

    (Editor's note: A Chronicle reader requested that we reprint this column that first ran in July 2004. It’s a good one, so here goes.)

This trait  must be created inside ourselves and be demonstrated by our outward acts. We are each challenged to examine our own behavior and thoughts. We need to control our response to external events, actions and opinions of others in order to build compassion for what  motivates their behavior. Compassion starts with being able to understand where the other person is coming from.

  • Banquet promises to be an evening of laughs and memories

    Alas, the final planning meeting for this weekend’s Trimble County Alumni banquet came and went last Saturday with one solitary soul in attendance--me.

  • Game of thrones

    It’s no surprise to people who know me that I am not a fancy Nancy.

    I’m not plain, and I am (I hope) feminine, but I’m definitely not lacy, doily, flowery foo-foo.

    I’m so not a princess.

    That said, I’m constantly getting invited to women’s events that border on the fancy. This past weekend, I was with a group of women at a nearby Victorian hotel, which has fancy in its very structure.

  • Oldham attorney lends support to Baxter for Commonwealth Atty.

    Editor:

    In the Sept. 27 edition of The Oldham Era, a candidate for Commonwealth Attorney ran an ad regarding local attorneys’ support of Courtney Baxter for Commonwealth Attorney. The candidate asks, in his ad, “What do they expect to receive in return?” As past-president and 30-year member of the local bar association, the former head of the Public Defenders Office, contributing member of the committee that wrote the local rules for civil and criminal practice, and Courtney Baxter supporter, I can answer that question.

    We expect:
