  • A wonderful tribute

    Editor:

    Friday, August 17th was a special day in Bedford. I was so moved by our American Flag draped across Hwy 42 and all the people waiting to show their respect for Mark. Thanks so much to the EMTs, Fire Departments, and Law Enforcements for making this possible.

    Quoting Jon Dunlap in time of crisis our community really comes together. Our EMTs and Fire Departments are not only a service but a family.

    The definition of a volunteer is one who gives of himself for service of his own free will.

  • Reader says magistrate should resign following DUI arrest

    Editor:

    I was deeply troubled when I opened our Trimble Banner. One of our magistrates had been arrested for DUI. I don’t know what the public thinks, but I sure think he should be forced to resign. He isn’t the only one in our government offices that has been arrested for DUI.

    To the magistrate: Be a man and resign your position as magistrate. You are my magistrate, therefore I feel the need to speak out.

    How can you even think you are doing your job? I cannot see how you feel you are serving the public.

  • County attorney expresses frustration with judicial system, cites example

    Editor:

    I am the Trimble County Attorney. Courtney Baxter is running for Commonwealth Attorney in the November election. I have endorsed Mrs. Baxter and wholeheartedly support her election. She is the only candidate who has years of experience as a prosecutor and is qualified to do the job.

  • Bedford Family Practice staff members praise efforts of firefighters

    Editor:

    Dr. Wintson Yap and the staff of the Bedford Family Practice would like to recognize the men and women of the Bedford Fire Department & Ambulance Service, Milton Volunteer Fire & Rescue Department, Campbellsburg Fire & Rescue Department, Trimble Co. Sheriff’s Department and the Kentucky State Police for their quick response to a fire that destroyed a house on July 18 next to our office.

    If it were not for the efforts of the brave men and women of these departments our office would have been destroyed by the fire.

  • Reader questions removal of shade trees from courthouse lawn

    Editor:

    I am gravely confused and dismayed regarding the beautiful trees that are now missing from our courthouse square. What in the world happened? Where did they go? And more importantly, why?  Who in the world authorized such destruction? 

  • Ely family expresses appreciation for community’s kindness

    Editor:

    On behalf of the Ely family, I would like to send out a very special thank you to the Milton and Bedford Communities.

    On the 7th of July, my brother Thomas Wayne Ely passed away at the very young age of 33. Tommy had no insurance and our family could not afford the cost of his final expenses. With the help of the community and several close friends, we were able to raise the $2,300 to help cover the costs.
