  • I know this topic is late. However, the relevance of this topic is just as timely for this week as it would have been for last week. I would like starting with a little story. A little girl came to her mommy and asked, “Mommy, if Santa Claus brings us our presents and God gives us our daily bread and Uncle Sam gives us social security, why do we keep Daddy around?” That little girl’s question could seem precocious or realistically thoughtful.

  • “Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew Him not” (1 John 3:1).

    This past Sunday we celebrated Father’s Day. I hope you had a wonderful day and that it was indeed, a special day. With this in mind I want to write to you about the subject of Fatherhood.

  • When I was a kid, my father’s mother owned a bakery.

    Whenever we’d visit her, we would come home with huge pink bakery boxes filled with assorted butter cookies, plus bags of bagels and loaves of bread and the best cinnamon rolls and bear claws you could ever eat.

    Fun fact: My dad used to say when Uncle Benny swept the floor at night, whatever he swept up was what he put on the bear claws as toppings.

    I’m pretty sure he was joking, or else he wanted to gross us out so he could eat all the bear claws.

  • Long gone are the days of companies offering monthly pensions to their retirees. While there are still some baby-boomers that have been grandfathered into these pension plans, most are left with only 401(k) plans. So, what’s the deal? Are matching contributions into a 401(k) plan better or worse than a company pension for the employee? Why does it appear that the younger generation is left out in the dark when it comes to a company pension? The fact is, depending on your specific company’s matching contributions, having a 401(k) might be better for you in the long run.

    David Marye recently joined the Bedford Rotary Club, and like many members brings a rich history of his career to share with others.

    Marye has worked with mental health programs his whole career since obtaining a Bachelor of Science psychology from Centre College and a Master of Science in clinical psychology from Murray State in 1973. He grew up near Lexington, began working in Trimble County in 1980, and has resided here since 1990.

  • One of my favorite authors is Anne Lamott.

    I don’t agree with her politics or her theology, but she loves Jesus with a raw, earthy, profound and honest love.

    She’s a recovering alcoholic and is not shy about openly telling her story.

    In her book “Traveling Mercies,” she writes about what she sarcastically calls her “beautiful moment of conversion.”

    It was during the week after her abortion when she stayed home, smoked dope and got drunk.

  • Dear Readers,

  • BY CRYSTAL CAUDILLO | The Trimble Banner

    The Trimble County Board of Education was told Trimble County High School Principal Michael Slider had resigned during its regular meeting June 6 at the administrative office.

    The board then discussed the possibility of only having one principal for the middle and high schools and decided to support a motion to consolidate the two schools.

  • My family is fortunate enough to live in an older home with a lot of character. A section of the home is more than 100 years old. Along with the house are four trees that are irreplaceable. All of them are at least 100 years old. They make me look like a youngster in comparison. In short, I love our home. I can’t imagine living anywhere else.

  • A number of weeks ago, I injured my left knee.

    It had been months since I had gone to the Y to exercise and I had finally decided it was time to go back. I bought new exercise clothes and talked to the wellness director for even more motivation.

    I was psyched.

    On a Wednesday afternoon, I got to the Y 45 minutes before the Strong by Zumba class started so that I could walk on the treadmill first.
