  • July 24, 1986 (30 years ago)
    Tina furnish of Route 3 Milton, was crowned Miss Shelby Rural Electric for 1986. Tina is the 17-year-old daughter of Terry and Patricia Morgan. Tina was chosen from a field of 13 young ladies competing for the crown. She received a $1000 scholarship to help with her education.

  • On Dec. 8, 2014, no one got eaten alive on the Discovery Channel’s “Eaten Alive” -- and some viewers who tuned in to see carnage were outraged.
    On May 6 of the same year, actress Shailene Woodley outraged feminists by announcing that she’s not a feminist, and on Aug. 28, Hello Kitty fans were outraged when the Sanrio company said Hello Kitty “is not a cat.”

  • The railroad detectives had shown up at Jared’s front door for the second time in a month.
    “Mr. Walker, your boy is going to have to stay off the train trestle down at the river. One more time and I won’t be coming here to talk.”
    After they left, my uncle turned to Jared, my cousin, and said, “I have talked to your grandfather and grandmother and you are staying the summer with them. Maybe a good dose of farm labor will help you think before you jump.”

  • This July 4th my family and I visited a nearby water park. The day was beautiful and the park was full. Dear Old Father Time, Bless his soul, has seen to it that roller coasters are no longer conducive to my optimum gastric stability. In short, my stomach will throw all engines into reverse and I will ruin the lunch plans for my fellow merry makers. Since my laptop causes motion sickness, imagine what a high-speed amusement projectile will cause. I now content myself with bumper cars, cars-on-a-track, and any kiddy ride on which I can stow away.

    Special to The Trimble Banner
    Kelly Nichols and her husband Randy moved to Trimble County from Fillmore, Indiana, after they bought a small farm with house and tobacco barn in August, 2014 from Dorothy Wentworth at 504 Mt.

  • Salsas are usually mixtures of high acid foods, such as tomatoes and/or fruit, with low acid foods, such as onions and peppers. With the addition of lemon juice, citric acid, or vinegar in the right proportion, salsa becomes a high acid food and can be safely processed in a boiling water canner. However, only research-based recipes should be used. Other salsa recipes, found on the internet, in published books, or from grandma’s recipe stash, should not be home canned unless they have been properly tested for safety. Enjoy those salsas fresh, or frozen for longer storage.

  • Summer months are the harvest season for blueberries and blackberries, both of which have the potential to grow very well in Kentucky. Harvest time for blueberries, which are native to North America, is from early June through early August. Blackberry harvest is from mid-June to early October. These delicious fruits offer several health benefits, and they capture the essence of summer in their sweetness.
