  • Warm temps inspire spring gardening

    Everyone seems so excited about gardening with the onset of early warm weather. Flowers are blooming 2 to 3 weeks earlier this year. In the garden you can plant peas, onions, potatoes, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, kale, spinach, kohlrabi, brussel sprouts, carrots, beets, radishes, and lettuce. Carole and I enjoyed our first harvest of asparagus, just the other day.

  • TCHS SPRING SPORTS: BASEBALL

    Trimble County Head Baseball Coach Frank Ragland is hoping to improve on the accomplishments of last year’s Raider team that compiled a 12-13 record. Ragland lost three members of that team—Cameron Adamski, Jimmy Duncan and Luke Sands—to graduation.

    Despite bright spots, which included taking runnerup spots in the 8th Region All A Classic and the North Central Kentucky Conference tournament, the Raiders came up short in the first round of the District post-season tournament.

  • LOOKING BACK

    30 Years Ago (April 15, 1982)
    Two miles of sewer line has already been laid in Bedford. In addition, 50 percent of the collector lines and force mains have been laid. Work has started on the lagoon and with improving weather conditions, Mayor James Black thinks there is no reason why construction of the sewer system can’t come right along.

    You dump on Barth Hill Road; you may be responsible for a $300 fine and clean up. There is a lookout and will report anyone seen dumping in this area.

  • Rep. Rand reviews the week in the House

    During even-year legislative sessions, no other bill gets more attention than the budget, which is understandable, because no other bill directs so many of the General Assembly’s priorities.

    Even so, that doesn’t undercut the importance of other legislation also set to become law, and as my colleagues and I prepare to wrap up the 2012 Regular Session this coming Thursday, there are more than a few of these bills that deserve mention.

  • DO YOU REMEMBER?
  • Letters to the editor not to be confused with rumor or fact

    A letter to the editor written by Milton resident Larry Graves and published in last week’s issue of The Trimble Banner apparently has ruffled feathers in and around Milton. It has been brought to my attention that the letter has generated some criticism leveled at this newspaper--to the point that some have questioned whether The Trimble Banner reports rumor or fact.
