Today's Opinions

  • General Assembly nears halfway mark

    One of the country’s great success stories over the last several decades has been the steep and steady decline in highway fatalities.
    It’s a welcome trend that has been especially pronounced here in Kentucky.  According to the state’s Office of Highway Safety, you have to go back to 1949 to find a year that had fewer than the commonwealth had in 2013.

  • Postmaster requests keep mailboxes clear

    Editor:
    Severe wintery weather conditions can create challenges for everyone, especially those whose job requires them to work outside in the elements. Postal letter carriers are among those who brave the snow, ice, sleet, and freezing rain to provide service to the community.  
    Letter carriers can be the first to visit someone’s home before snow removal or salting begins. That’s why I’m asking Trimble county residents to include the regular upkeep of residential mailboxes as part of any snow and ice removal routine. 

  • Citizens encouraged to attend meeting on waste landfill Feb. 20

    Editor:
    This is a request to the Citizens of Trimble County who are concerned about clean air, clean water, and the environment of our county to attend the Open Meeting that will be held by the Division of Waste Management on February 20th at 7:00 p.m. at the Trimble County High School gymnasium to answer questions and hear concerns regarding LG&E’s revised permit application for a 189-acre coal fly ash landfill.

  • County official voices pride in Lady Raiders

    Editor:
    What a thrill it was to go to Frankfort and see our Trimble County High School girls’ basketball team beat Murray on Wednesday night. Several hundred folks made the trip to see our “never-say-die” team overcome a much taller squad. Our ladies fought back over and over to win a two-overtime squeaker.

  • Hornback’s communication infrastructure bill gets nod

    This week in Frankfort, the Senate passed key pieces of legislation that help our students and school districts, provide economic development and access to better communications, and give law enforcement time-saving investigation procedures.

  • State’s education gets attention of General Assembly

    With more than half of state government’s revenue dedicated to education, it shouldn’t be a surprise that many of the bills considered by the General Assembly every year are also centered on the subject.
    That was certainly the case last week in the Kentucky House of Representatives, which sent to the Senate several pieces of legislation designed to improve different facets of our schools.

  • Who are the ‘church people’?

    Recently, someone passed on a bit of gossip to me.
    This person said, according to reliable sources, a certain person at a certain local church did something that, while doesn’t technically violate the letter of any of the Ten Commandments, is unseemly for, as this person put it, “church people.”
    That same week my pastor said someone came to him and informed him that a certain person who was attending the pastor’s class with the intent of joining the church was, indeed, not a very nice person, maybe even a despicable one.
