  • Growing population growing older in Kentucky

    The U.S. population is growing faster than a blade of bluegrass in spring. But a larger population will not necessarily mean a younger population, for either our country or the Bluegrass State.
    The less-than-robust birth rate nationally and here in Kentucky over the past decade means that the largest population growth -- at least over the next few decades -- will be among the baby boomers (those born between 1946 and 1964), which means most population growth will be among older and the oldest Americans, demographers say.

  • Senator wraps up final week of session

    Long nights, intense debate, and media attention from across the globe wrapped up what started as a quiet final week of the 2017 Session of the Kentucky General Assembly. Minutes before the Senate gaveled out for good, Governor Matt Bevin called this session the most productive in history.  It was truly an honor to work alongside the governor with the new House Majority to pass many great initiatives for our commonwealth.

  • Rep. Rand lists summaries of approved bills

    It’s been good to be back among the people of the 47th House District since the adjournment of the 2017 session of the Kentucky General Assembly on March 30.  I’ve enjoyed talking to so many of you about the many issues we faced and the final decisions that were made, some with my support and some without.

  • Donations welcome for Project Prom

    Editor:
    Project Prom began in the late and has been successful for years as it offers a fun and exciting way to celebrate a substance-free prom night for our juniors, seniors and their guests. There has been a great sense of pride and community involvement in the planning and implementation of this rite of passage for Trimble County students. The buy-in from the entire community is astounding!

  • 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

    The 2017 session of the Kentucky General Assembly is now history and with its conclusion comes the consideration of what was accomplished — both good and bad — and how the adoption of these policies will play out for the future of the Commonwealth.

  • Summit Basecamp at TCMS

    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.

    There was a time when most people connected with their elected officials over landline phones or by sending a letter through the postal service.
    Oh, how times have changed.
