  • Milton Fire & Rescue seeks local donations

    Editor:

    On March 2, 2012, Milton Fire & Rescue Station No. 2 in Milton Kentucky was hit by an EF-3 tornado. We lost the Station, a 1983 Spartan Fire Engine, a mobile fish fry trailer, some gear, radios and pagers, and some other items that were stored at this station. Our Fire Department is an all-volunteer department that relies on donations only since we are not a taxing department.

  • Hotel group calls for opposition to tax hike

    Editor:

    Please take up the voice of Kentucky citizens to defeat another tax increase.

    House Bill 368 is working through the Legislature. This bill will enable cities across the state to charge an additional three percent tax on restaurant sales. This is a fifty percent tax increase on restaurant meals. This is a sneak attack to raise taxes on every citizen in the Commonwealth.
    These taxes will just be passed on to the citizens, and make every restaurant meal more expensive.

  • Time to clean up Bedford Cemetery

    Editor:

    Spring is just around the corner and it is time to clean up the Bedford Cemetery.

  • Bedford Fire Department soliciting subscriptions

  • Locals encouraged to experience ‘Citizens’ Police Academy’

  • Resident supports Signature Healthcare

    Editor:

    My name is James Gividen. I am a resident at Signature HealthCare of Trimble County, and I’ve been here for 14 months.

    I am responding to an ad that was placed on the back page of the Trimble Banner (Dec. 14, 2011) that said our Signature nursing home is not a good place.

    I want to say that it is a good place. I’d recommend it to anyone who needs to be in a nursing home. The nursing staff is excellent. The kitchen staff is excellent. The place is very clean.

  • Heavy volume of truck traffic a concern on Wentworth Road

    Editor:

    My family and I live on Wentworth Road, neighboring the land LG&E has designated for the proposed ash landfill. Lately, we have been subjected to constant large truck traffic from 6 in the morning to as late as 8 at night. In the last two weeks, it has been extended to include Saturdays and, this past weekend, they worked all day Sunday.
