New Special Prosecutor Apointed in Trigg Sheriff Investigation

A new special prosecutor has been appointed by the Kentucky Attorney General’s Office to direct the misconduct investigation involving Trigg County Sheriff Aaron Acree. Muhlenberg County Commonwealth’s Attorney Clayton Adams was appointed last week by the AG’s office after Todd County Attorney Jeff Traughber asked to be removed from the case. In a September 14 letter to the AG’s office, Traughber said it was “apparent that the investigation may result in multiple charges including at least one felony” against Acree. He then asked for the AG’s office to relieve him of the appointment, adding a new appointment that “possesses the necessary staff and resources to dedicate to the prosecution” was needed.

Queen Elizabeth II died of ‘old age’ — hours before announcement was made

Queen Elizabeth II died of simple “old age” — and nearly 3 1/2 hours before her royal family announced it to the world, according to a copy of her death certificate released Thursday. The much-loved 96-year-old monarch’s death was listed as being at 3:10 p.m. on Sept. 8, less than 3 hours after Buckingham Palace had warned that her doctors were “concerned for Her Majesty’s health.” It was also three hours and 20 minutes before the royal family formally announced that she had “died peacefully at Balmoral,” her Scottish retreat. The timing meant that the UK and its Commonwealth had for hours unknowingly...

Ken Plum: Closer look at higher education in Virginia

My advice to young people has always been to go to any college you want as long as it is in Virginia. Whatever the criteria for choosing an institution to pursue higher learning, Virginia colleges and universities can meet the need. For liberal arts, engineering, science, performing arts, big or small, there is a school well-ranked nationally that will meet the criteria. While the community college system is organized statewide, all other institutions are individually planned and administered with a personality all their own. Taking a granddaughter visiting college campuses recently reminded me once again of the diversity and strength of our colleges and universities.

Massachusetts Scores High on Being One of the Best States for Teachers to Work In

Where would we be without the help of our beloved teachers? We admire our teachers for their dedication to educating and guiding the younger generations. Educators have overcome many hardships whether it be working through the Covid-19 pandemic or enforcing the Student Succeeds Act in their classrooms. Teachers ensure that all their students are guaranteed an equal education opportunity. While everyone across the United States respects their dedication to helping others, many of these teachers are overworked and underpaid.
