  • Veterans’ benefits in Kentucky topped $1.7 billion in 2010

    Veterans Day is always a special time for our country, but it promises to be even more memorable on Friday because of its location on the calendar.

    That’s because, for the first time ever, the year aligns perfectly with the holiday’s specific time of remembrance. It will be another century before anyone else can pause to honor those who have served our country on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month of the eleventh year.

  • Reader expresses thanks to magistrate

    Editor:

    I want to thank Nolan Hamilton for taking a stand against the sale of wine on Sundays. I regret that it is legal at all in the County but as it is I ask the Magistrates and the Judge to vote against this ordinance.

    Again thank you Nolan for the stand you took and keep up the good work.

  • State takes lead in science, technology

    Over the last few decades, Kentucky has gained a well-earned reputation for its groundbreaking work in science and technology.

    We will forever be home to the world’s first self-contained artificial heart and the nation’s first hand transplant, for example, and two of our researchers were behind the world’s first 100 percent effective cancer vaccine.

    Remember this, Trimble County has one of the worst educational systems in the 120 counties.

  • Reader ‘applauds’ Magistrate Hamilton

    Editor:

    I’m writing in regards to the winery. I totally agree with Nolan Hamilton. I feel the county made a big mistake when they voted to allow a winery in the county. Since this has already happened I feel the least we can do is not allow it to be sold on Sunday. Just this past week we had a motorcycle fatality in Milton. We are told alcohol may have played a part. Why are we encouraging this type of action by allowing alcohol to be sold in the county?  I applaud Mr. Hamilton for taking a stand. We need more commissioners like him.

  • Thanks to Magistrate Hamilton

    Editor:

    I want to thank Magistrate Nolan Hamilton for the stand he took against the Trimble County ordinance concerning the sale of wine on Sunday. I appreciate that Nolan has values he is not afraid to stand by, even when he is in the minority.

    Most of us have only heard the stories of when Trimble County was “wet” and the problems it created, especially for law enforcement. The presence of the winery is the first step that could lead to our county returning to those darker days.
