  • Teachers take part in public education rally

    With the legislature finishing its 60-day regular session Friday and Saturday, teachers from across the state were on hand to voice support for public education.

    The rally forced the closure of nearly 40 school districts across the Commonwealth.

    The first district to announce it would cancel class? Trimble.

    Superintendent Steve Miracle said it didn’t matter what the other districts did in terms of opening, closing or sending delegates from school faculty, but that he made the decision based on what was best for Trimble’s educators.


    From a family blacksmith shop in the post-Civil War era that eventually spurred the creation of Burrows Garage and Wrecker Service in 1917, Scott Burrows has worked hard to preserve his family’s legacy.

    Burrows, the fourth-generation owner-operator of Burrows Wrecker Service in Sligo, was recently named a member of the Class of 2018 International Towing and Recovery Hall of Fame. He is one of eight named to this year’s class.

  • County schools close tomorrow for Frankfort rally

    Trimble County’s students will get a three-day weekend on the heels of returning from spring break as schools will be closed tomorrow, April 13.

    The closure will allow teachers to attend the end of this year’s legislative session, Superintendent Steve Miracle said. It was a direct response to Gov. Matt Bevin’s vetoes of House Bill 200 and House Bill 366, the budget and revenue bills, respectively. Principals polled teachers to see if there was a large number who wanted to be in Frankfort and there was, Miracle said.
