    The Trimble Banner

  • Third generation now operating Bray’s Orchards

    Special to The Trimble Banner
    “Honey, stop the car! There is a roadside market with fresh vegetables, jams/jellies, flowers and homemade ice cream!”
    That could be the conversation for any couple passing through Trimble County on Highway 42W, just outside of Bedford. However, to the local community Bray’s Orchards is legendary, having served the county since 1930.

  • Nickel tax question will appear on November ballot

  • Clutter

    No matter what you call it, clutter, mess, junk, or hoarding, I can produce the aforementioned with a snap of my fingers. I like to think of it as channeling my inner kangaroo rat. I also consider myself to be a recycler/reuser par excellance. My husband may see junk where I see possibility. After all, those mismatched beads may be drafted into a new role as part of a mixed media piece. Despite my well-crafted, logical argument in favor of keeping my materials I suspect some are being moved out of the house when I’m otherwise engaged.

  • Late summer cattle fly check can catch control breakdown

    Horn fly and face fly numbers will continue to build for a few weeks, which will put pressure on control programs. It is a good time to evaluate the pasture fly situation in your herd; check during the early afternoon on a sunny day (Figure 1) less than 100 horn flies per side and less than 10 face flies per head is a good target for animal protection. Consider an adjustment or supplemental measure if fly numbers exceed these guidelines.

  • Tax myths addressed

    Dear Readers,
    It is likely that moving forward over the next couple of months I will spend a lot of time writing about the Nickel Tax that is now set for election. I feel that it is important to use every opportunity available to me to assure that true facts are being released to the community. In a previous article I stated that it is the responsibility of every voter to know the facts on both sides of every issue. I hope to help with that process as much as possible.
