  • 4th of July a time for celebration, honoring sacrifice

    While the calendar tells us that summer technically began about two weeks ago, the truth is that it feels like the season is halfway over by the Fourth of July, since that is roughly the mid-point between school years.

    Our country’s “birthday,” of course, is one of the first history lessons our students learn. We declared our independence 242 years ago this week, when we formally decided we no longer thought of ourselves as 13 colonies but a nation in our own right.

  • The importance of foundational values

    Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness are the values on which our great nation was founded. Written in the Declaration of Independence, these words ring true for all Americans and have held fast for more than two centuries. Ratified on July 4, 1776, the Declaration has long been held in the hearts of the American people as a source of hope and inspiration to protect the freedoms we hold so dear.

  • Church: It's not really about me?

    Since my husband and I have no beach getaway plans this summer, I thought it might be fun to take Sunday mornings and visit some out-of-town churches.

    So, a few weeks ago I researched online for churches that look interesting, making a list of ones to visit. The challenge: finding churches we both find interesting — we each look for different things in a church.

  • High summertime temps can stress farm animals

    Mother Nature has already been bringing the heat and humidity. In fact, Kentucky experienced the warmest May on record, and livestock are feeling it. Producers have options to keep livestock thriving in the summer heat.

  • Enrollment trends show decline over past decade

    A decade ago, the student enrollment picture for Trimble County Schools painted a different picture than the tale today.

  • Cardinal Hills celebrates 50 years

    Driving the main highways in Trimble County, it might be easy to pass the two road signs directing visitors to the Cardinal Hills Golf Course just off Stark Lane outside of Bedford.

    The course will celebrate its golden anniversary next month, with 50 years in operation. The course opened for business in the summer of 1968 with Jerry and Sharon Stark operating the course alongside Jerry’s parents, Hubert and Lola Stark.

    “The day that he ever opened the course was dad’s first time of playing golf,” Stephen Stark said.
