  • Nominations sought for Citizen of the Year

    I am writing to request nominations for the Bedford Rotary Club Citizen of the year award.

    Each year the Bedford Rotary Club looks for citizens of Trimble County that have “made a difference”.

  • Shelby Energy board of director’s election

    Editor:

    On Friday, June 22, 2012, Shelby Energy had their first contested election for a Board of Directors’ election in their 75 year history.  I was not successful in my attempt to be elected to the District III (Carroll and Trimble County) seat. 

  • Bedford fire chief alarmed over fiscal court budget cuts

    Editor:

    As you are reading this it has been over four weeks since Trimble County Fiscal Court approved the first reading of a “tighter” budget for 2012-13. It seems quite convenient that Judge Stevens announces his resignation two weeks later. His resignation made the paper, why didn’t the budget reading?

  • Successor suggested

    Editor:

    It appears Mr. Stevens is going on to bigger and better things and we the people of Trimble County are in need of new leadership. With no disrespect to the other members of the fiscal court, I, for one, would think that the person to replace Mr. Stevens would be able to have a vision to enhance the future of our county. I always thought that my very best friend, Dicky Webster, that has passed on was the best magistrate this county ever had until now.

  • Boosters say thanks

    Editor:

    The Trimble County Middle School and High School Band Program and the Trimble County Bank Boosters would like to thank all the wonderful businesses and individuals who so kindly supported our annual Spaghetti Supper fundraiser on May 24 through their extreme generosity of prizes for our raffle. The fundraiser was a huge success and we appreciate the support for our young musicians from our great community! A big thank you also to everyone who bought a raffle ticket or came and purchased a Spaghetti Dinner. We hope to see you again next year!

  • Volunteers needed

    Editor:

    Last year, my husband and I joined the Apple Festival Committee as volunteers to help put on the annual festival in September.  I can truly say we had a very rewarding experience in seeing the festival come together for the enjoyment of our community and visitors alike.  At best count, there were over 5,000 people who delighted in the festivities; including contests, arts and crafts vendors, music, food, activities for children, an antique tractor show, and of course, the beautiful handmade quilts!!!

  • Local candidate seeks votes for co-op board

    Editor:

    The first contested election for a position on the Shelby Energy Cooperative Board of Directors will happen this year at the 75th Annual Meeting.  

    You may wonder why someone would challenge the incumbent director representing Trimble and Carroll counties?  Because as a member-owner, I believe that the Board of Directors’ meetings should be open to the owner-members and that our energy should be clean, affordable and efficient. 

  • Bridge project means no Milton roadblocks

    Editor:

    It is the time of year again for Crusade For Children roadblocks in the county. It is, however, with great regret and heavy hearts that the Milton Volunteer Fire and Rescue Department will not be doing a roadblock this year.

    Our members enjoy doing this detail every year, so this was a very difficult decision for them. But, with work ongoing on the Milton-Madison Bridge and traffic flow uncertain because of that, our main concern must be with the safety of our firefighters and the traveling public.

  • Candidate thanks voters for support on May 22

    Editor:

    I want to thank the people of Trimble County for electing me as your new Circuit Court clerk. I am humbled and honored to have your support and trust. I am looking forward to the new duties and responsibilities I will face when I take office in January, and I will be working hard in my new position to make you proud.
