    Special to the Banner

    Organizers of the Trimble CARES Coalition were on hand to discuss the history of fighting substance abuse and other issues prevalent in the community at the Feb. 20 meeting of the Bedford Rotary Club.

  • In James 1:19-20 the biblical writer tells the readers, “You must understand this, my beloved: let everyone be quick to listen, slow to speak, slow to anger; for your anger does not produce God’s righteousness” (NRSV).

  • Several years ago I began a column: “The other day a co-worker posted on Facebook that it had been the ‘week from hell.’

    “We had all felt it. It was as if a black cloud hovered over us, raining down all kinds of bad. We had made mistakes. Tempers flared. Fingers pointed.

    “Cranky people called, which didn’t help our own crankiness. We scowled. We sulked. We wished we were anywhere but here.

    “It was one B-A-D week.”

    That could be said of the past several weeks, locally and globally.

  • Murray State University

    Murray State University has announced its dean’s list recipients for the fall 2017 semester. The list recognizes the academic accomplishments of the University’s undergraduate students.

    “We take great pride in our students’ academic achievements,” said Mark Arant, provost and vice president for academic affairs. “This recognition is a testament to their hard work, dedication and excellence during the fall 2017 semester.”

  • MADISON, Ind. – In recognition of Colon Cancer Awareness Month in March, King’s Daughters’ Health (KDH) will again be providing free take-home, DNA-based colon cancer testing kits through its physician/provider offices. Testing kits are available from physicians who care for adult patients - Family Medicine and Internal Medicine providers.

  • March is Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month. It’s a good time to raise awareness about the third-most common cancer in the United States and talk about possible ways to prevent it. Recently, scientists have begun to show that a healthy gut may play an important role in colorectal cancer prevention.

  • Kentucky, with its ever-increasing interest in purebred livestock, offers purebred cattle breeders one of the most unique and effective state-supported promotional events ever developed – the Kentucky Farm Bureau Beef Expo. This year marks the 23rd Annual Expo, which is held the first weekend in March, at the Kentucky Fair and Exposition Center in Louisville, Kentucky. This may only be the 23rd year of the expo, but looking back at previous years, the Kentucky Beef Expo actually has more history before its state supported start in 1987.
