  • Aviation industry big in Kentucky

    Most Kentuckians know that the commonwealth plays a major role in the auto industry – in fact, only two states produce more cars and trucks than we do – but far fewer are likely aware that our work in aerospace and aviation has overtaken it.
    Last year, that industry accounted for nearly $8 billion in exports, topping the $5.9 billion generated by our auto parts and assembly factories. Overall, about half of everything that Kentucky ships beyond our borders ultimately goes toward moving people and products over the ground and in the air.

  • Retired educator, coach is Rotarian of the Year

    Special to The Trimble Banner
    Each year, the Bedford Rotary Club recognizes a member who has exemplified exceptional service work for the club and the community at large. Jim Hurst received the honor this year, not only for his service in 2014-2015, but for an accumulated record of service since joining Bedford Rotary in 1999.  As all club members recognize, being a part of Bedford Rotary means lots of time commitments and often a sharing of one’s resources to make the club viable. Jim has done this willingly for many years.
