Opinion

  • Apparently, hell has frozen over. For the life of me, I don’t have an opinion on anything local today. Huh. Anyone who knows me even a little should find that surprising. I guess that’s summer in rural Kentucky. Not a lot of controversy, now that the Primary Election is out of the way. But, we still have plenty of things coming up, in terms of activities. First is R

  • Editor: When I think of what I am most proud of, it is driving along U.S. Hwy. 42, taking me through each county in the 26th District and enjoying the beauty of horse farms along the way. Their important roles in Kentucky’s signature industry have always been taken for granted by me, until the last few years. The thoroughbred business and horse racing in Kentucky are in dee

  • Editor: You may have heard of Tona Barkley because she and her husband, John Harrod, are local musicians who perform throughout the region. Another reason you may know her is because she is on the ballot to serve as a director of Owen Electric Cooperative. We have known Tona for more than 30 years. She is an intelligent, hardworking an

  • Editor: To the voters of District 2, your support in the May 18 Primary Election is greatly appreciated.

Thanks, also, to those of you who were kind enough to let me display my campaign signs, those who came by and those who phoned. I am grateful to my family, who

  • Editor: Why did your newspaper have an article in the Wednesday, May 12 issue regarding The Moving Wall Memorial, yet no information in your Wednesday, May 19 issue - not even in the Community Calendar? For Carroll County to host this extraordinary memorial replica should have been front page of your paper since it was the day before the wall’s arrival. While detai

  • Editor: One of the lessons we all should have been learning through the last couple years is that large corporate enterprises can run extremely askew from the public interest. We have even seen them operate against their own best interests as their executives helped themselves to personal financial rewards while steering their companies into

    Saturday’s going to prove to be a challenging day for one of our community’s most   important annual events — the Carroll County River Sweep.

  • Editor: The Medride Program in Carrollton is in need of volunteers. It is operated out of the Senior Center on Sixth Street and the van is parked in front of the center. Volunteer drivers take seniors to medical appointments, usually to Madison, Ind., La Grange, Louisville and occasionally to Campbellsburg or Warsaw. We could use more retir

  • "If I have to tell you one more time to stop it, I’m gonna turn this car around and we’ll go back home!” How many times do we remember that threat – made by our exasperated parents – when we, as children, were behaving badly on a trip in the car? Well, I’m starting to feel like the parent of naughty chil

  • Editor: Trimble County Youth League Baseball would like to say thank you to Jason Ginn, Jeffrey Scott and Shelby Energy for helping us make our fields brighter at the Trimble County Park.

  • Editor: As the red buds have faded and the scent of lilacs have waned, the oaks, locust and walnuts have sprouted their leaves again, it can only mean one thing at the John T. Ray Complex in Robert Westrick Memorial Park. That one thing is the sound from the umpire… “play ball” and America’s pastime, like the bird

  • Editor: The management, staff, and clients of New Horizons Assisted Living would like to thank Ghent Fire Department Assistant  Chief Robert Hofmman and his dedicated volunteers for the quick and professional response to a fire alarm here at our facility.  We are thankful that we did not have a fire, however, a malfunction in one o

  • Several weeks ago, we received a “poem” – for lack of a better word – that just recently was included in a mass-mailing aimed at Trimble County voters.

    Whether the individual or group who sent it to our office meant for it to be published, I don’t know. But, we didn’t – for two reasons.

  • Editor: This is in regard to the lovely poem surfacing in our community mailboxes about two of our magistrates and judge. Why do we personally have to attack people? Why couldn’t the person or persons responsible for it sign their name at the bottom of it? Or use the correct names of the three people? Do you know these people personally? Do you care if they have famili
