    Special to The Trimble Banner
    Bedford Loan and Deposit’s celebration was a hit! Trimble County Citizens came out to an open house Saturday to support the bank for their 125 years of serving the community.
    There were free to go cups, drawings for prizes, picture albums of years and years of celebrations at the bank and stories to assist the pictures.

  • Aunt Bertie was getting ready for Thanksgiving. She sent Uncle Clovis out to the chicken coop to wring a few hens’ necks. Any of y’all ever done that? If you have – you’re rural.
    Clovis brought a couple of hens back to the kitchen and Aunt Bertie began pulling feathers off.
    Clovis has a little pet monkey named Jack, smartest little critter you’ve ever seen, indeed. Monkey see, monkey do, is his middle name. Jack sat on his stool watching Bertie plucking those chickens.

  • Prior to our marriage my husband had a well-tended, lush back yard. His backyard was approximately an acre. For the purposes of this story I will include the side yard since it has also experienced unrelenting attacks. He mowed and weeded regularly and things ran smoothly along their appointed courses. He had a routine that worked. That was before he met me. Shortly after we married things began to change. The changes weren’t dramatic at first. Things began to shift in a gradual, insidious manner. The first major change came in the form of horses.

  • It’s nearly Thanksgiving, and soon delicious, juicy turkeys will take center stage at many of our holiday meals. It’s so important that these birds are properly cooked and prepared, because we don’t want anyone to get sick from a food-borne illness.

  • It’s that time of year when talk turns to turkeys. Technically, there is only one breed of turkey, with several varieties, although many people incorrectly refer to these varieties as breeds.
    Turkeys are raised only for meat. They are not raised for egg production, as with chickens, ducks and quail. As a result, turkeys do not produce very many eggs.
    The most common type of commercial turkey raised in the United States is the Broad-Breasted White. It has a larger breast than the other varieties of turkeys.
