  • Digging into family history reveals several military veterans

    Most of my life, I never considered mine to be a military family. We had picnics on Memorial Day, but it was more or less just a family day. Veterans Day came and went, with not a thought toward any family members who served.

    It really wasn’t a topic that we discussed.

    I did know we had veterans in my family. My mother’s sister, my Aunt Max, was a member of the Army Nurses Corps in World War II. While serving at the 115th Station Hospital in England, she met my Uncle Gerry Bosscher, an orthodontist from Grand Rapids, Mich., who was an Army doctor.

  • Team praises department

    To the editor,

    On behalf of the Trimble County Raider boys basketball team, we would like to extend our deepest gratitude to the Bedford Volunteer Fire Department for allowing us to use their facility to host our first annual “Haunted House” fundraiser, held Friday, Oct. 31 and Saturday, Nov. 1.

  • Public meeting Nov. 19 for Prestonville project

    The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has scheduled a public meeting at 10 a.m. Wednesday, Nov. 19, at the Westside Volunteer Fire Department to discuss a proposal from a Louisville company to build a terminal on the Kentucky River, 0.7 miles south of the confluence with the Ohio River.

    Once built, the terminal will be used by Louisville Paving Co. for barge deliveries of liquid asphalt, which the company will store in two large tanks on the property, located just outside the Prestonville city limits.

  • Candidate appreciates all voters

    To the editor,

    Election day was a big day for all of us, and I want to thank all of our voters for the big turn out. I know sometimes it is hard for people to get out and I want to say I am proud of Trimble County for all the effort that was made to cast their vote. I was one of the Bedford city commissioner candidates listed on the ballot, and as you know I lost the race, yet I still feel that I need to thank not only the ones who voted for me, but also thank the voters who did not vote for me.

  • Thanks for coming home

    To the editor,

    The Milton Elementary School PTO would like to thank everyone who took part in making our “Homecoming” Fish Fry on Oct. 18 a success. We truly appreciate all those who volunteered their time and financial support. A big thank you to all the individuals and businesses in Trimble County and the surrounding communities who donated money and items for the annual auction.

  • Kentucky Veterans Memorial expanding

    If you missed out on buying a personalized brick when the Kentucky Veterans Memorial was built at General Butler State Resort Park, you’ll soon have a second chance.

    The original bricks pave portions of the walkway to the monument and the ground in front of the large, free-standing stones that honor each branch of the military. They were sold to raise money for the project, and are engraved with the names of veterans.

    Jim Mosgrove and Shelby Bickers, two members of the memorial board, have made 165 more bricks available, and already have sold 10.

  • Food donations needed now more than ever

    Editor:

    I’m sure it’s no surprise to any of you that these are troubled times – global financial upheaval, a stagnant national economy, job losses and general unrest.  

    With this combination of issues, it’s easy to understand the predicament some organizations such as our local food bank/pantry can face. Demand for food from the pantry has risen, just as everyone in the community is finding it more expensive to keep their own pantry shelves stocked.

  • XC Raiders compete in regional racet

  • Haven offers hope to women facing unplanned pregnancy
