• Thanks to Magistrate Hamilton


    I want to thank Magistrate Nolan Hamilton for the stand he took against the Trimble County ordinance concerning the sale of wine on Sunday. I appreciate that Nolan has values he is not afraid to stand by, even when he is in the minority.

    Most of us have only heard the stories of when Trimble County was “wet” and the problems it created, especially for law enforcement. The presence of the winery is the first step that could lead to our county returning to those darker days.

  • Milton resident urges action be taken on deadly U.S. 421 curve


    I am writing about an area on Hwy 421 in Milton that is dangerous and deadly. On the curve in the 9900 block, there were five accidents the past week with several injuries and one fatality. This is not just this past week that has been a problem. In the 14 years we have lived here, we have seen three deaths and more accidents than we can count. Many of the accidents are not listed in the Kentucky State Statistics as they are able to leave without assistance from the legal system.

  • Phil Ransdell rites a ‘wonderful sendoff’


    It was a beautiful autumn day ideal for a funeral and a burial in a remote countryside location.  We noted attendance was all close relatives.  Since the cemetery was located not too far from Campbellsburg where our farm is, we elected to be one of the ten vehicles in the funeral procession from Bedford.

  • Bedford city officials planning Thanksgiving meal for community


    Last week my husband and I were sitting at home talking about the upcoming holidays. We thought how nice it would be to have a community Thanksgiving at the community center for everyone who either could not afford dinner or was alone and had no one to spend the day with.

    On Monday I went in to work and wrote on my calendar on Tuesday, Nov. 22, “Community Thanksgiving.” I had not said anything to anyone about this.

  • Appreciation expressed for success of reunion


    We would like to thank everyone who came and brought delicious food to the Farmhouse Reunion. Thanks to everyone who helped us get it all together. A special thanks to the Band for the great music. We had a wonderful night.

    We hope the time spent with us Saturday night helped you relax for a little while to enjoy each other, the delicious food and great music.

    Thanks to the Trimble Banner for helping us advertise it.

    Thanks for another Great Reunion,

    Norvel & Judy Barnes

  • Bedford Fire Chief writes to thank public servants for their service and sacrifice


    With this last week being a time of great reflection and remembering in our nation’s history I would like to take this opportunity to give thanks. I would like to thank all the service men and women who have served and are serving this great country. Your job is one with huge sacrifices and sometimes horrible consequences.

  • LG&E neighbor concerned over fly-ash landfill plans


    For the last 24 years, my family and I have lived in a beautiful country setting next to land owned by LG&E. After doing nothing to their land for all this time, LG&E has submitted an application for a permit to construct a fly ash landfill directly across from our home, in which I have a state-certified day care.

  • Appreciation expressed for Bedford Bash sponsors, volunteers

    Dear Editor. Merchants, Fellow Business People and Individuals:

    The 22nd Annual Bedford Bash was a hit. We raised over $300.00 for the needy kids Christmas party through the sale of T-shirts. We gave away several prizes and had a great time. I have heard several positive comments on Young Country and the 5th Annual Car Show.  

    Congratulations to the Trimble Banner for winning the Window Decorating Contest.
