  • An ode to Wisconsin lava flows, legless dogs and worry

    The other day I found an old, yellowed and brittle newspaper cartoon that I had cut out and saved.
    Dated from 1987, it’s a drawing of a woman sitting in a wing-back chair holding her knees with her feet tucked underneath her.
    The caption reads: “This year’s Irrational Fears Grand Champion worries, from her home in Madison, Wisconsin, about being caught up in a deadly lava flow.”

  • Harvey unites a divided nation

    A relatively small group of hate-filled people protesting and fighting in Charlottesville, Va., earlier this month showed what sharp division can do to a nation.

    Meanwhile, a much larger group of Americans in Texas, of various political backgrounds, skin tones and social status, are banding together this very moment to help each other out in the wake of devastating flooding in the wake of Hurricane Harvey.

  • DO YOU REMEMBER?
  • Nation is greater when we stand as 1

    It was shortly before 9 a.m. that most Americans knew something was wrong that bright fall day 16 years ago.
    Regular TV programming ended abruptly nationwide as video of smoke pouring out of a tower of the World Trade Center in New York City dominated broadcasts. A commercial airliner had hit the tower in what was at first thought to be an accident. When a second plane hit the second tower at 9:03 a.m., America’s worst fears were confirmed: The crashes weren’t accidents. The planes had been hijacked.
    The U.S. was under a terrorist attack.

  • District Rotary leaders visit Bedford

    Our new Rotary International District Governor, Missy Eckenberg, along with Assistant Governor JoAnn Hepperman, attended our August 29 meeting. Our District (6710) is large and is comprised of 55 clubs from central and western Kentucky, with some 2,800 + members. Each year, a new governor (term is August 1 to July 31 the following year) attempts to attend all club meetings at least once, a difficult and demanding task. Much road time!

  • Rotarians hear of library summer reading program

    By CHARLES LISTON
    Special to The Trimble Banner
    One of Rotary International’s six main causes includes “Supporting Education”. Our Bedford club has historically been active with this cause for many years and supports our local schools in many ways in support of education at all levels. We were most appreciative to learn, once again, how active the Trimble County Public Library is in carrying out summer reading activities for our community.
