    Special to The Trimble Banner
    The hot topic at last week’s meeting of the Trimble County Board of Education was a vacancy the retirement of Evon Horn has presented for the second grade class at Bedford Elementary. To date, the board has not named a replacement for Mrs. Horn. A couple of teachers and some concerned parents were at the meeting to discuss this with the members of the board. The concern is such that there will be too many students in a classroom unless the board agrees to hire a replacement to fill the void.
