  • Wrong place, wrong time

    When I watch movies, I enjoy the action/adventure genre. One of my favorites involves a tsunami. Apparently, it is possible for watercraft to survive the crushing force of the wave, if the boat can make it over before it crests. The movie showed several small boats racing toward the monster to scale its surface. Sure enough, our dauntless heroes rocketed ever upward as the smaller boats discovered that gravity is a harsh mistress. Falling back into the trough of the wave, they were soon pulverized when it crested.

  • Lady Raiders step ahead of Carroll early but fall in second half, 41-29

    Building experience as a team has been the mantra of the Trimble County Lady Raiders this season. By halftime in the Jan. 10 matchup against Carroll County’s Lady Panthers in the All “A” Classic tournament at Walton-Verona, the team showed signs of strength, going into halftime with a one-point advantage.

    However, a couple of treys by Carroll’s Andrea Searcy to start the third quarter left the Lady Raiders playing a game of catch up and ultimately falling to the Lady Panthers, 41-29.

  • Winter weather continues pounding Trimble

    Editor's note: Milton fire chief Jason Long provided information about Monday's two rollover crashes on Milton hill to the Banner after Tuesday's presstime. He also provided information about a two-vehicle accident Tuesday afternoon on the same stretch of road. His information has been added to the story.

    Not even a week after the first bout of winter weather in 2018 and the county had to deal with even more snowfall, school closures and slick roadways.

    As the Kentuckiana area spent 13 days with below freezing air temperature, the stage was set early Monday morning for hazardous conditions as the above-freezing rainfall froze to the cold surfaces.

    “It was a little worse than we’ve seen for a little while,” said Eddy Callis, supervisor of the Trimble County Road Department.

  • Frozen in time

    The recent onslaught of below-freezing temperatures that occurred between Dec. 24, 2017 and Jan. 6, 2018, may have inconvenienced many local residents, but it was a mild situation compared to harsh weather conditions endured by our antecedents a century ago.

    A New Castle man accused in connection with the 2015 murder of Angela Hall will get a jury trial in Trimble County Circuit Court next summer, after a new private investigator looks into the case for the defense.

    Bobby Austin Long would have gone to trial Jan. 22 on charges of complicity to commit murder, kidnapping, tampering with physical evidence and being a persistent felony offender, second degree, all of which stemmed from November 2015 for his alleged role in Hall’s death.

  • Problems plague rollout of new system in county clerk's offices statewide

    Problems with the statewide rollout of a new point-of-sale system for county clerks Jan. 2 and Jan. 3 forced around 75 patrons attempting vehicle registration renewal to be turned away by staff at the Trimble County Clerk’s office in Bedford.

    State officials directed county clerks Wednesday to revert to the previous system they were using while the state troubleshoots problems, said Trimble County Clerk Tina Browning.
