Today's Opinions

  • What’s up with all the ‘W’s on the Milton-Madison Bridge?

    Recently I have heard some rumblings about a contest to name the new version of the Milton-Madison Bridge.

    We’ve always called the current Milton-Madison Bridge the “Milton-Madison Bridge.”

    That is, unless you are a died-in-the-wool Indiana resident who hates anything blue and white or anything associated with Kentucky and the proliferation of Wildcat memorabilia everywhere. THOSE people insist on calling it the “Madison-Milton Bridge.”

  • Reader enjoyed Callis Grove article

    Editor:

    As a current member on the board of Callis Grove camp meeting I read with great interest the article last week in The Banner about the camp. I would like to express my sincere thanks for the wonderful article you wrote. The pictures were good also. It took some people back to the old days of camp meeting. I talked to some who said they remembered those days. Thanks for all the time and effort you put into the article. Not only myself but I heard others comment on what a good article it was. Thanks again.

  • Adult education sees enrollment growth

    It has been a little more than a decade ago since the General Assembly revamped the state’s adult education programs, a high point in the legislature’s ongoing efforts to improve the classroom from preschool to the workplace.

    While a lot of work remains, the past decade has been exactly what we had hoped. In fact, from 2005 to 2009, adult education enrollment grew by 30 percent – faster than any other state over the same period. There are now about 40,000 citizens who are helped academically each year.

  • Thoughts on coming home to Jesus

    A while ago someone sent me a newsletter from The Coming Home Network International.

    Attached was a note that read: “Mrs. Kennedy, I understand you are a lapsed Catholic. If so, you may find this (newsletter) of interest. Why not return to our Mother Church?”

    It was signed, “a friend.”

  • 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.
