  • Former resident writes to discourage alcohol vote

    Editor:
    I spent many fond years of my childhood in Trimble County. I appreciate how peaceful and safe I always felt. After living in Pulaski County for 20 years, I long for the peaceful atmosphere I felt growing up in Trimble County. I keep track of Trimble County events through The Trimble Banner and occasional visits. Although there have been many changes, I appreciate the lack of many vices I experience daily in my current hometown.

  • Bedford residents urged to vote “No” on sale of alcohol

    To the Voters in the City of Bedford:
    I want to express my opposition to the sale of alcohol in our town of Bedford. We are already having problems with drugs, vandalism assaults and all that goes with these. We now and have for some time needed a town cop to help combat these problems. So please vote against the sale of alcohol in our town.

    The holiday season is well under way. Many of you enjoyed a bountiful Thanksgiving feast with your loved ones and will do so again during Christmas and New Year’s Day.
    But for others, the holidays aren’t so merry. More than 700,000 Kentuckians don’t always know where their next meal will come from, according to the Kentucky Association of Food Banks, a Berea-based organization whose member food banks distributed 52 million meals in all 120 Kentucky counties last year.

    It may not have generated much publicity, but Kentucky’s economy hit a high-water mark in October, when our civilian labor force saw its biggest one-month gain in at least 40 years.
