    A few years ago, the thought of a grocery store opening in Bedford would’ve been a pipe dream. It was a necessity that many desired but also saw as unrealistic. It seemed impossible to successfully run a legitimate grocery store in a town like Bedford, mostly because of population status as well as previous businesses that tried similar endeavors—however, these negative odds are exactly what resulted in the championing status of the locally owned and operated Poppy’s General Store.

  • There are a multitude of reasons that a student struggles academically, but the most detrimental is the lack of confidence. It is with hope that two recent graduates at JCTC Trimble County Adult Education prove to others that the power to overcome lies within yourself. Kelsie Metz and Deborah Thompson, both struggled with a lack of confidence and uncertainty, but walked away with a diploma in their hands.
    “Many people said I would not amount to anything. Getting a GED was the place to start,” Kelsie said.

  • Very large birds seem to be attracted to me. I like birds but I have never gone to any major efforts to all attention to myself. This situation began with the appearance of a vulture.

  • It’s berry season in Kentucky. At the grocery store and Farmers Markets, many of our growers have a great selection of berries, including blackberries and raspberries, now available.
    These two berries, along with boysenberries, are collectively known as brambleberries. They get that name from the thorny, tangled vines from which they grow.  Brambleberries are harvested from June through August in Kentucky.

  • The Trimble County Youth Services Center and Family Resource Center are teaming up to host a Back to School Fair again this year.
    This will be a community-wide effort to provide clothes and shoes for those students and adults who are living on a tight budget. Be sure to tell anyone you know might be in need of this outreach effort to make them aware of this opportunity.

  • I’ve lived in Florida long enough to know that sometimes we have drought conditions and sometimes the water in the rivers and lakes gets so high it overflows.
    About five years ago, this area of Florida was bone dry. It was so dry that a local man who lived on a canal -- “waterfront property” -- converted the dried-out canal off his boat dock into a golf course, complete with putting green, fairway and a tall grass hazard.
