  • Viewing yourself through the eyes of another can be a very enlightening experience. It happened to me recently. What I saw was one part funny, one part mortifying and one part confusing. I hope my attempt at fractions made sense. A single word is just not sufficient to describe the impact of my realization of how much of my time is devoted to foolishness.

The PSC recently set a July 1991 date for LG&E to complete the new plant. Meanwhile, the PSC continues a statewide study to determine future electricity needs.

    Special to The Trimble Banner
    While attending a recent school board meeting, I learned about an important activity to resurrect and improve the green house at Trimble County High School.  With other school developments in 2014, the original greenhouse needed to be removed.
