  • 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.

  • 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

  • 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.
