  • Prayers answered: Pay here

    How much would you pay to have your prayers answered?
    For the past four years, until the Seattle-based website with 1.3 million Facebook fans was taken down, people could pay the Christian Prayer Center between $9 and $35 to pray for them.
    From 2011 to 2015, more than 125,000 people forked over more than $7 million for their more than 400,000 transactions/prayer requests.

    Countywide telephone service is a luxury that Trimble County has never enjoyed. Many residents of the county who live in the outermost edges of the county cannot call the county judge’s office, the sheriff’s office or the emergency medical service without dialing long distance and having to pay the toll.

  • Bicycle plate change underway on Milton-Madison Bridge

    Construction crews have started work to change the bicycle plates on the Milton-Madison Bridge. The work – which will smooth the bridge transition for bicycle traffic - involves changing the plates in each shoulder on each end of the truss bridge.
    Milling work is expected to take about two weeks. Once that is completed, the new plates will be installed. Work will occur at one location at a time and will require no lane closures - only shoulder closures. The work will not impact the pedestrian walkway.
