  • Youth In Need Holiday Assistance Program efforts appreciated

    Editor:

    The Trimble County Youth In Need Holiday Assistance Program has been able this season to provide well over 200 youth and more than 90 families with gifts and food for Christmas. This is a yearly service that is provided through the Trimble County Schools Family Resource Center and the Youth Services Center.

  • Heavy volume of truck traffic a concern on Wentworth Road

    Editor:

    My family and I live on Wentworth Road, neighboring the land LG&E has designated for the proposed ash landfill. Lately, we have been subjected to constant large truck traffic from 6 in the morning to as late as 8 at night. In the last two weeks, it has been extended to include Saturdays and, this past weekend, they worked all day Sunday.

  • Holiday movie moments are like visiting old friends

    Almost everyone has a favorite Christmas song, movie or story. While I enjoy the songs and stories of the Christmas season I want to take a nostalgic look at some of my all-time favorite movies to watch at this time of the year. At the Taylor house it has always been a rule that we don’t listen to Christmas songs or watch Christmas movies until Thanksgiving evening.

  • Governors serve as guideposts to state’s rich history

    This week, Steve Beshear is being formally sworn into his second term as governor, kicking off what is Kentucky’s 59th inauguration.

    While the governor is often the most well-known official in the state – like presidents, their tenures serve as guideposts to our history – the truth is that few of our past leaders are well known beyond the counties named in their honor.

    This week is a good time to learn a little more.

  • The responsibility of choosing kindness

    I have had several clients lately that express a lack of kindness in their relationships at home and at work. This seems to be prevalent in our world of changing values. In her book The Business of Kindness, Olivia McIvor defines twelve kindness traits to demonstrate character building. These are as follows in three primary areas:

    •Kindness to oneself – authenticity, attitude, resilience, excellence

    •Kindness to one’s colleagues- trust, compassion, courage, friendship

  • Bedford Deputy Clerk writes to thank community

  • Reader questions intent of ‘special interest groups’ in county

    Editor:

    Is there no shame in Trimble County?

    I can remember that 10 years ago when a special interest group of people were crying about how we needed zoning here. They said that if not passed the lower class of people would destroy Trimble County by moving in with their trailers, drinking, their drugs and trashing our beloved county. It did not happen.

  • Community’s support appreciated at school’s Fall Festival

    Editor:

    The Bedford Elementary School PTA would like to thank the community for their support of the 2011 BES Fall Festival. We had a great turnout for the food, games, raffle, and auction.

    The Fall Festival was a huge success, because of your donations, support, and time. The faculty, staff, and students are grateful to have such a wonderful and involved community that truly cares about the success of their young people.
