    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.

  • Kentucky a leading state in workforce development

    Whenever corporate leaders scout for new locations to expand or re-locate their business, they consider such obvious things as infrastructure, government incentives, taxes and the cost to build.
    Above all else, though, they look at the quality of the local workforce, according to annual surveys done by Site Selection magazine, a national trade publication that tracks economic development.

  • When perfect isn’t enough

    A few weeks ago, I watched a movie on TV called “The Perfect Family.”

    Right away, just by the title, you know they’re not perfect.

    The main character is Eileen, the mother of the family. A devout Catholic, she attends Mass every day, and at confession she confesses every sin she can think of down to her gossipy thoughts.

    She serves communion and delivers food to the homebound. She’s careful to pray before meals and keeps a family altar in her home.
