  • Landfill procedures inconvenient for users

    Editor:
    I would like to voice my complaint with how our local landfill has chosen to operate.
    In the past, you could drive straight in and go down the hill to be weighed. But some time ago, they chose to make you drive the long way around on a road that is badly maintained. There are potholes you park a Volkswagen in.

  • TCMS students raising fire-safety awareness

    Editor:
    We are sixth-grade Esprit students at Trimble County Middle School and we are raising awareness for fire prevention and safety.
    Fire is the most preventable and common disaster in Trimble County. Most people who are injured or killed in fires either don’t have a smoke detector or don’t have working batteries.
    We are sending surveys home with all TCMS students to find out the need for working detectors.

  • Sports engages small percentage of students

    Editor:
    This letter is to comment on the editorial concerning the Trimble County School Board’s interest in building an athletic complex. An earlier editorial indicated that I seemed to be in opposition to the complex. That is not necessarily the case.

  • New fields would boost participation, pride

    Editor:
    I would like to share my thoughts on the proposed sports complex.
    Athletics play an important role in the lives of students. If handled correctly, athletics teach the importance of academics, leadership, discipline, endurance, hard work, social skills, and also help with the obesity problem among our youth.

  • Sports complex project belongs on ‘back burner’

    Editor:
    Today I read that the school board is looking into building a new sports complex. My first thoughts were, “Yes! This is great for our youth, for I, too, did sports in school and began my Golden Gloves training while in my teens there.”
    Well, you guessed it: Then I remembered that our county educational system here in Trimble County is not doing too well with the educating of our youth and the drop-out rate is not so good, as well.

  • Hauler thanks city for Bedford waste contract

    Editor:
    I would like to take just a moment to say a great big “thank you” to the Bedford City Commission for awarding the 2011 city trash collection contract to Elite Waste Services.
    Your confidence in our ability to service the community is appreciated. We will do everything in our power to uphold the high standard of service that we’ve set in the rest of Trimble County.
    We look forward to working with the city of Bedford and all its residents.

  • Bedford PTA gives thanks to all Fall Festival supporters

    Editor:

    The Bedford Elementary School PTA wants to thank the community for its support of the 2010 BES Fall Festival, held Nov. 6.  We had a great turnout for the food, games, raffle and auction.

    The event was a huge success because of your donations, support, and time. The faculty, staff, and students are grateful to have such a wonderful and involved community that truly cares about the success of its young people.

  • Officials inspect creeks for sewage leaks

    Editor:

    The North Central District Health Department, in conjunction with County Judge-Executive Randy Stevens, the Trimble County Sheriff’s Office, the Eagle Resource Conservation and Development district, the Tri-County Community Action Agency, and other community partners began examining local waterways Monday, Nov. 8.
