  • Six stabbed in fracas at Bedford party

    Six people were injured in a fracas Saturday, Nov. 6, that allegedly began as a verbal argument at a Bedford party and escalated when one of the guests pulled a knife and then a sawed-off shotgun on several others.
    Aaron Woosley, 25, of Lancaster, Ky., had been invited to a party hosted by Chris Barnes at his 216 Clark Drive, Bedford, home. During the party, an argument began between Woosley and another guest, Josh Sparkman of Bedford, according to Trooper Michael Webb, public information officer for Kentucky State Police Post 5.

  • Testing Trimble's emergency preparedness

    It was only a test, but to a casual onlooker it could have seemed like the real thing.

  • Jackson, Melvin beat challengers

    After a seemingly endless political season, Trimble County voters spoke Tuesday and the results are in. Voters spoke loudly, too, with about 45 percent of registered voters going to the polls.

    In Trimble County’s main contested races, Denny Jackson prevailed over challenger Steve Brierly to retain the mayor’s office in Milton. Jackson received 143 votes to Brierly’s 54 votes.

    Jackson, who had served on the commission for more than a decade, was appointed mayor in October 2009 after the unexpected death of then-Mayor Donnie Oakley.

  • Wood calls it a day

    The Trimble Banner

    Perhaps snow, rain, heat or the gloom of night never kept Pete Woods from completing his appointed rounds, but retirement will.

    Wood, who has been a mail carrier for the Milton Post Office for nearly 39 years, will finish his route for the last time on Friday, Oct. 1.

    Postmaster Cecilia Oak is hosting a retirement open house for Wood from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, Oct. 2, at the Milton Post Office in downtown. The public is invited to attend.
