  • The summer of my 10th birthday found me on my grandparents’ farm in rural, Appalachian Alabama. Their farm was a collection of barns and outbuildings around a small, white frame house sitting on a hill overlooking the Coosa River. Being devout Baptists, my grandparents paid especial attention to the scriptural injunction of Genesis Chapter 9—that part about multiplying and replenishing. They obeyed that scripture 13 times of which I am aware. Their 13 children produced a bountiful supply of grandchildren of which I am one.

    Countywide telephone service is a luxury that Trimble County has never enjoyed. Many residents of the county who live in the outermost edges of the county cannot call the county judge’s office, the sheriff’s office or the emergency medical service without dialing long distance and having to pay the toll. But the condition is about to change. The 1986 General Assembly has passed two pieces of legislation which relate to countywide telephone service. Both bills are on the governor’s desk.
