Today's Opinions

  • Band Booster expresses thanks for band support

    Editor:

    The Trimble County Band Boosters would like to thank Lois Adair and Debbie Noblin for being so helpful and nice to the band last week during Band Camp. It takes a community to support small band programs like we have at Trimble County and these ladies are fine examples of the community.

  • Cross country parent writes in support of Coach Vincent

    Editor:

    I am writing in regards to the article that was in the July 20 edition entitled “TCHS track/cross country coach suspended.” The parent that provided the information for the paper failed to mention some important facts. My daughter has been a part of the track/cross country team for three years and I feel I may have some things to add.

  • Reader encourages community involvement in Bedford Bash

    Editor:

    Our 22nd Annual Bedford Bash is just around the corner on August 26th, 2011.  Entertainment will consist of Trimble County High School Band and Trimble County cheerleaders starting at 6:30 p.m., then Young Country starting at 7 p.m. Asphalt Angels will be having a car show around the courthouse. The theme is “Military Pride.” We will draw for gifts at different times during the evening.  

  • State ends fiscal year with surprise surplus balance

    There have been several positive signs in recent months that the worst of the recession may finally be behind us, but perhaps the best indication yet for Kentucky came late last week. That’s when Governor Beshear announced that state government ended the just-completed fiscal year with nearly $157 million more than expected.

  • Controlling thoughts leads to inner peace

    Betty came to me for consultation to find peace in her life. She described several situations of chaos and disruption. She has two daughters who had difficult relationships and a father who was very ill.

    Stress at work was a constant threat of cutbacks. Her workload had increased because of the last cutback, which left her department understaffed. She was working longer hours with higher quotas.
    She was worried about the erratic weather and growing violence around the world.

  • Summer education programs

    For many students, the end of the school year does not mean an end to time spent with a teacher.

    In fact, hundreds work as hard during summer vacation as they do during the rest of the year.  Two of the most popular programs Kentucky offers are Governor’s Scholars and the Governor’s School for the Arts, both of which give select high school students a chance to spend several weeks on a college campus with others as driven as they are.

  • Reader supports Coach Vincent

    Editor:

    On a personal note, I have known Jeff Vincent for six years because of his strong and prosperous team that he coaches. He not only supports and encourages kids on his own team; he also does the same for others such as me.  

  • Trimble alumni encouraged to enjoy TCHS centennial

    This week’s edition of the paper may fill some youngsters with dread at the thought of another school year being just around the corner. For most, however, there is the anticipation of a new adventure and new worlds to conquer. For some parents, the term “back to school” brings a sigh of relief.
