  • Writer invites readers to dance

    Editor:
    ROCK AND ROLL DANCE featuring music from the 50’s and 60’s from my private collection. Dance will be held at the Trimble County Fairgrounds in the Senior Citizen building, Friday August 18th, 7-9 p.m. Refreshments will be served. The dance is open to all ages, bring your dancing shoes as I take you down memory lane back in time when sock hops were common, and American Bandstand was watched by teenagers across America.

  • County’s gifts & giving a blessing to students

    Dear Editor,
    I am always amazed at the spirit of giving and caring that I see on a daily basis in Trimble County. I am writing to thank all those that made the Back to School Fair a tremendous success. It truly does take a ‘village to raise a child’. There are so many that are fortunate to be able to give as there are also many that are fortunate to be in a position for all this kindness to be available.

  • Reader enjoyed steam locomotive history

    Editor:
    I hope everyone read the wonderful historical article by Dave Taylor on Steam Locomotives that was in The Trimble Banner on July 13. If not, dig that paper out and enjoy some important area history.

  • Use caution when handling fireworks

    To the Editor:
    Phantom Fireworks hopes everyone enjoys a wonderful family Independence Day holiday, and, if you use consumer fireworks, please use them safely.  There is no good consumer fireworks experience if it does not emphasize safety first.
    Phantom advises everyone to follow the safety rules, obey the fireworks laws where you are using them and have the products used by a sober adult who conforms to the rules.

  • CASA organization seeking volunteers

    Editor:
    In 2007, CASA, a non-profit that helps abused and neglected children, expanded its program to include Trimble County. 10 years later the organization is looking to continue growing its program as child abuse and neglect cases rise in Kentucky.
    Last year, there were 28,000 substantiated cases of abuse and neglect in the state. 1 in 5 of those occurred in CASA of the River Region’s service area. While CASA served 447 children, there were over 400 waiting for someone to stand up for them.

  • Supports school board, superintendent

    Editor:
    In response to a letter to the editor by Ms. Gayle Banta I would like to say:
    Your current superintendent and board members have done very well in trying to keep your community informed. I read the articles each week that the superintendent has written in order for you and your community to be informed---maybe you should read them!

  • Reader unhappy with board of education

    Editor:
    Back in November the voters of Trimble County rejected a 5-cent school tax increase. Now the school board attempts to cram the 5-cent tax down the throats of Trimble County citizens again. How many times can a few individuals try to force the rest of us to pay for something we don’t want?
    I suggest we need to replace this school board as soon as possible.

  • Reader urges vote for “only solution”

    To my Trimble County Community:
    Many of you may know me, many of you may not. As I write this letter I’m pulled in many different directions but only have a few words to express those. I write to you today about the Nickel Tax. This issue has become a very polarizing issue in our community.
    I know people who no longer speak over something as trivial as $74 per year. I didn’t pull this number from a hat, that’s my increase if the Nickel Tax is passed.
