  • Each year, Trimble County Middle School observes Red Ribbon Week with many other schools across the nation. Red Ribbon Week is an alcohol, tobacco and other drug and violence prevention awareness program observed annually in October in the United States.

    The Red Ribbon Campaign was started when drug traffickers in Mexico City murdered DEA agent Kiki Camarena in 1985. This began the tradition of displaying Red Ribbons as a symbol of intolerance towards the use of drugs. This red ribbon is a unified message of our commitment towards a drug free community.

  • The City of Bedford has teamed up again this year with the local churches and civic organizations to offer a free Thanksgiving Dinner on Tuesday, Nov. 20, at 6 p.m. The event will be held at the Morgan Community Center in Bedford. Everyone is invited.

    “Last year we kind of threw it together at the last minute and we served over 185 people,” Bedford Deputy Clerk Rita Davis said. “We were shooting for 200 so we came really close. This year we would like to reach that number or even go over.”

    Today in 4-H we talked about people getting sick and ways to keep from getting sick.  One way to keep from getting sick is to wash your hands.  You sneeze on yourself then you start touching things and spreading germs.  

    The first step in washing your hands is to get warm water and apply soap.  When you get cold water your pores shrink and trap the dirt and germs.  When you use warm water the pores on your skin expands.  This allows you to get the dirt and germs out.  

  • The holiday season is generally a time for celebrating and enjoying the company of friends and family. Unfortunately, it is also a time when people eat more high-fat, high-calorie foods than they normally would. If you have diabetes, it is sometimes difficult to  maintain your blood glucose within the target range set by your doctor.  Some careful thought and planning can go a long way to help you manage your blood glucose and still have a good time around the holidays.

  • Fall is the time to think about all those flowers we associate with spring: daffodils, crocus, and other easy-to-grow flowering bulbs. If you aren’t growing spring-flowering bulbs in your landscape, you are missing out on some easy-to-grow plants that provide early color to your garden, according to Rick Durham, UK Extension Specialist in Consumer Horticulture.
