  • Reader questions intent of ‘special interest groups’ in county

    Editor:

    Is there no shame in Trimble County?

    I can remember that 10 years ago when a special interest group of people were crying about how we needed zoning here. They said that if not passed the lower class of people would destroy Trimble County by moving in with their trailers, drinking, their drugs and trashing our beloved county. It did not happen.

  • Community’s support appreciated at school’s Fall Festival

    Editor:

    The Bedford Elementary School PTA would like to thank the community for their support of the 2011 BES Fall Festival. We had a great turnout for the food, games, raffle, and auction.

    The Fall Festival 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 their young people.

  • Reader supports Magistrate Hamilton

    Editor:
    Once again I would like to applaud Nolan Hamilton for his stand against the Sunday sale of wine. He is serving the county well. After attending the court meeting the other day I feel like most of the county is against this ordinance. I saw people from different parts of the county. I have come to realize the only thing left to do is at the ballot box. So, friends, be sure to vote in the next election. We must do all we can to stand against things like this.

  • Trimble County Search & Rescue Unit

    Trimble County Search & Rescue Unit
    Editor:

    A lot of people don’t know who we are and what we do. We are there if you need us to be. The Trimble County Emergency Search Unit is a group of wonderful skilled and trained volunteers that help to find lost and missing persons and that’s why I joined the team three years ago. I am a single mother of three, very proud of them all and I try to make them proud of me in all I do now. I am very glad this unit is there if I ever need them to be called upon to find my children if they ever wondered off.

  • Reader expresses thanks to magistrate

    Editor:

    I want to thank Nolan Hamilton for taking a stand against the sale of wine on Sundays. I regret that it is legal at all in the County but as it is I ask the Magistrates and the Judge to vote against this ordinance.

    Again thank you Nolan for the stand you took and keep up the good work.

  • Reader seeks new Trimble school board

    Editor:

    Remember this, Trimble County has one of the worst educational systems in the 120 counties.

  • Reader ‘applauds’ Magistrate Hamilton

    Editor:

    I’m writing in regards to the winery. I totally agree with Nolan Hamilton. I feel the county made a big mistake when they voted to allow a winery in the county. Since this has already happened I feel the least we can do is not allow it to be sold on Sunday. Just this past week we had a motorcycle fatality in Milton. We are told alcohol may have played a part. Why are we encouraging this type of action by allowing alcohol to be sold in the county?  I applaud Mr. Hamilton for taking a stand. We need more commissioners like him.

  • Thanks to Magistrate Hamilton

    Editor:

    I want to thank Magistrate Nolan Hamilton for the stand he took against the Trimble County ordinance concerning the sale of wine on Sunday. I appreciate that Nolan has values he is not afraid to stand by, even when he is in the minority.

    Most of us have only heard the stories of when Trimble County was “wet” and the problems it created, especially for law enforcement. The presence of the winery is the first step that could lead to our county returning to those darker days.

  • Milton resident urges action be taken on deadly U.S. 421 curve

    Editor:

    I am writing about an area on Hwy 421 in Milton that is dangerous and deadly. On the curve in the 9900 block, there were five accidents the past week with several injuries and one fatality. This is not just this past week that has been a problem. In the 14 years we have lived here, we have seen three deaths and more accidents than we can count. Many of the accidents are not listed in the Kentucky State Statistics as they are able to leave without assistance from the legal system.
