  • October 30, 1986 (30 years ago)

  • Every few years I go home.
    Although home for me for the past 25 years has been here in Florida, “home” home is Southern California. My DNA is a combination Valley Girl and the OC.
    Last week I went home to attend my only, and therefore by default, favorite sister’s 40th wedding anniversary party.
    I missed her wedding 40 years ago when I was living in Maine and very, very pregnant with my daughter Alison, who also flew out to California from her home in Maryland, along with my favorite only granddaughter, Caroline.

  • I have a credibility problem. The medical profession has an axiom which advises, “When you hear hoof beats look for horses, not zebras.” In other words, look for the most likely explanation and not the unordinary. In my case when I hear hoof beats I think of unicorns! Once an idea is in my head, no matter how unlikely, it captures my imagination and reduces me to a novelty.

  • Over 3000 vehicle-deer collisions occur each year in Kentucky, and autumn is the peak season.  According to the Kentucky State Police, almost half of all such collisions occur in October, November and December.  November is the peak month by far, averaging around 750 collisions annually.  Three people were killed in each of the past two years.

  • It’s hard to believe that winter is right around the corner. If you’re a horse owner, you should already be preparing your winter hay supplies.
    How do you estimate the amount of hay you will need? If you have mature horses at maintenance level, you want to feed a mainly forage diet.
    The estimate would be similar to a 1,100-pound horse eating 2 percent of its body weight. That equals 22 pounds of hay per day. Feeding for 120 days, December through March would equal 1.3 tons of hay per horse.

    Special to The Trimble Banner
    The Bedford City Commission held its meeting on Oct. 18, 2016 at the Morgan Community Center. The Commission first discussed the status and concerns of the cemetery, sanitation and streets/sidewalks.
    Mayor Todd Pollock had received a complaint from a citizen regarding the upkeep of a family member’s grave. Pollock responded that the caretaker of the cemetery had been in the hospital and unable to perform his duties.
    Sanitation had no concerns.
