  • Signature staff member invites public to visit

    In a recent edition of the Trimble Banner, there was a full page ad from some out-of-town law firm targeting our nursing home here in Bedford, KY. As the full-time chaplain at Signature HealthCare of Trimble County, I witnessed several heartbreaking reactions from our residents (who we call neighbors) when they saw the ad that morning. One neighbor’s reaction stands out in particular. Ms. Gladys Penick with a distraught look on her face asked, “Why would they do that? I’ve been here two years, and everything has been great.”  

  • Reader encourages others to vote for ‘God’s way and will’

    I am not a liberal/progressive Democrat. I’m not a Republican. My party is the Watchmen Party. Read Ezekiel chapter 33 in the Bible.
    It’s not about what party you’re in. If you are a godly man or woman, one day you will stand before the Lord Jesus and you will have to give an account of what you do or say. We need to put men or women in office/position who will stand up for our Christian faith.

    Readers share ‘pitfalls’ of AT&T 4G LTE network
    It was with great interest that we read the article in the Trimble Banner titled “AT&T Improves 4G LTE Network in Trimble,” published July 30, 2015. Coincidentally, we had been interacting with AT&T all week regarding the same issue, and although the improved network may benefit many in Trimble County, we had a different experience and would like to share it, in order that others are made aware of some of the pitfalls of the new network.

  • Reader: Time for a superintendent to take schools out of ‘state control’
