  • Tuttle family expresses appreciation for kindnesses of community

    Editor and Dear Friends:

    The outpouring love, kindness, and generosity of the Carroll County Community and surrounding counties has been phenomenal. We consider ourselves to be very fortunate to live and work here. Our family has received visits, meals, calls, cards, emails, and messages too numerous to count. Even though we have lost Caroline, her memory lives on through the love we all had for her.  Your prayers have given us strength as we search for peace while we travel down this road of grief.

    Thank you again,

  • Roots of the Thanksgiving Day holiday in America

    Sometimes in this busy land of plenty we need to stop and review our national and spiritual heritage to remind us how we got to where we are today.

    Throughout history mankind has celebrated the harvest with ceremonies of thanksgiving. Harvest festivals and thanksgiving celebrations were held by many cultures: the Hebrews, the ancient Greeks, Romans, Chinese and Egyptians.

  • It’s time we work together

    Our world is at a point of crisis that most of us could never have imagined. Factors of climate, war, culture, environmental destruction, resources, unemployment and financial decline are creating fear and uncertainty of the future. We are at what some predict as the end times.

    Whether you agree with this or not, one thing that we all agree on is the need to set aside our differences and focus on mutual goals of restoration. We can no longer divide the focus by remaining in conflict within ourselves, our families, our communities, our country and our world.

  • Phantoms and mirror magic

    A month or so ago, I met a man with part of his right arm missing -- he was a tree trimmer and had an accident involving a chain saw.

    I asked him if the missing part ever hurt. He said as a matter of fact, it was bothering him as we were talking.

  • Reader displeased with Trimble education

    Editor:

    I am never surprised with the 90 percent of the elected that serves we the people of Trimble County. Keep in mind I mean this with kindness of heart for most, not all, do a very good service they are elected to do for the great people that live here.

  • Quality care helps people feel better

    Editor:

    This year I celebrated my tenth year of providing OB/GYN care to those in our community and surrounding counties. I chose to practice in La Grange because the community was similar to the small town in which I was raised in eastern Kentucky. My goal was to bring quality care from the “city” to our community so our residents didn’t have to drive to town for excellent care.

  • Kentucky’s new test scores attracting national interest

    Over the last two decades, Kentucky has built a national reputation for its willingness to blaze new paths when it comes to education.  Early this month, we took another major step forward with the release of the latest round of school accountability scores.

  • Welcome to my demise

    Recently, I had a raging flare up of my chronic, terminal hypochondria.

    It always hits on a Friday after regular doctors’ and dentists’ hours are over, which only increases the intensity of the flare up.

    I’ve died many times from hypochondria, if only in my mind.

    This recent attack came as a result of using too many new dental hygiene products at once. I had seen a commercial that warned: If you’re not whitening your teeth, you’re yellowing them.

    Sounds ominous, right?
