  • Teacher Spotlight: Dennie Brierly

    By TREVOR BROWNING
    Special to The Trimble Banner
    Mr. Dennie Brierly is someone I speak to on a daily basis. Despite the fact that I haven’t been enrolled in one of his classes since my freshman year, he still stops me to say hello whenever or wherever I see him. No matter if I bump into him in the hall or happen to see him on the street somewhere, Mr. Brierly is constantly smiling and asking me how I’m doing.

  • This is your life

    By MICHAEL JINKINS
    Special to The Trimble Banner
    I suppose you’d have to be at least as old as I am to remember the television program, “This is Your Life,” in which a person was presented with several surprise guests, people from the person’s past who had been important in their lives, often decades earlier. For some reason the phrase “this is your life” came back to me recently as I was sitting in the lobby of a hotel in Atlanta waiting for the final session of the conference I was attending.

  • Bedford Springs hosts singing duo Sunday

  • Random notes on grace

    I hate clutter, although you’d never know it by looking at my desk.
    This morning I had some free time, so I decided to go through the piles of notes and scribbles scattered around, which usually results in a “random notes of grace” column.
    I hope something will be helpful or encouraging to you today:
    Some months ago, I wrote down something my friend Mike said: “I had faith that I was going to heaven, but I didn’t trust God to fix me NOW because I didn’t see how he would or could do it.”

  • Leaders must continue focus on Kentucky’s growing drug epidemic

    By ANDY BESHEAR
    Kentucky Attorney General
    “The single greatest threat to Kentucky is our drug epidemic.
    The crisis is killing our family and friends – it is the main source of crime in our communities and it is preventing job and economic growth. This is the crisis of our times, and we must find new ways to stop drug dealers and help those addicted recover.
    With the rapid rise of stronger, more powerful drugs like heroin, fentanyl and carfentanil, the opioid epidemic is killing more and more Kentuckians.

  • DO YOU REMEMBER?
  • Growing population growing older in Kentucky

    The U.S. population is growing faster than a blade of bluegrass in spring. But a larger population will not necessarily mean a younger population, for either our country or the Bluegrass State.
    The less-than-robust birth rate nationally and here in Kentucky over the past decade means that the largest population growth -- at least over the next few decades -- will be among the baby boomers (those born between 1946 and 1964), which means most population growth will be among older and the oldest Americans, demographers say.
