  • The holiday season is a time for enjoying the company of friends and family, a time for frequent parties and social gatherings and a time when high-fat, high-calorie foods are available. As a result, there are many opportunities for putting on extra pounds.

    Research shows that the average American gains about one to two pounds during the holidays. This may not seem like a lot, but the problem is that this weight is kept on and it can accumulate with each passing year.

  • The Agriculture Water Quality Act was passed by the Kentucky General Assembly in 1994. It states that landowners with 10 or more acres in agricultural production must develop a water quality plan. If you farm 10 or more acres or plan to harvest trees on 10 or more acres in Kentucky, then you are required by state law to implement an agriculture water quality plan, according to Amanda Gumbert, UK Water Quality Extension Specialist.

    Actually, very few Trimble County farmers have completed their required water quality plans.

  • 30 Years Ago (Nov. 19, 1981)

    Sondra Rodgers, movie actress and Trimble County native, was hospitalized after a mugging near her Hollywood, Calif. home.

    Work will be beginning on 7.5 miles of sewer system for the town of Bedford tomorrow, Nov. 20. The system is financed, Mayor James D. Black said, by a $1,100,000 EPA grant, supplemented by a $525,000 government loan, and an additional $52,000 FHMA loan was obtained to assist low income people whose incomes were not sufficient to hook onto the system.
