  • Ask Signature HealthCARE of Trimble County Administrator Mark Witt about his facility and he’ll quickly tell you the Bedford facility is a “gem in Trimble County.” During a recent interview Witt extended an invitation to the community at large to visit the facility, “look how far we’ve come and celebrate our success together.”

    Signature HealthCARE has come a long way in the last three to four years from almost being shut down by the state to now being recognized as a Five Star Facility by the federal government, Witt said.

  • You have probably heard that the cost of food is expected to rise next year. You can do several things to reduce your current grocery expenses and hopefully prepare yourself for the expected price increase.

  • Usually we only think of wearing respiratory protection around the farm when spraying pesticides on field crops. However, when it comes to corn and soybean harvest time, I have observed the dust so thick that combine operators had to put their lights on to see where they were going. I am not kidding! It is important for farmers to use respiratory protection to safeguard their lungs against dusts in the coming weeks and months as they harvest crops, clean out grain bins, open silos, and strip tobacco among other seasonal farming activities.
