  • Family relationships explored in film ‘Sins of the Mother’

    One of the truly great inventions of the modern era is the DVR.

    I love mine with all my heart, mind, soul and strength.

    Last week I watched a movie I had recorded called “Sins of the Mother,” about the relationship between a young woman and her formerly abusive, alcoholic mother.

  • Improving your sleep patterns

    What you eat affects your ability to sleep. Avoid eating pasta and meat casserole late in the evening. Carbohydrates and protein, as well as sugary desserts can disturb restful sleep and may even keep a person awake. Sugar products can be related to moodiness and a racing mind. Poor digestion can be related to getting less sleep. Catnip/lemon balm tea and taking one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar with honey or Alovera Juice for indigestion.

  • Why church?

    Scattered throughout any community are tiny, struggling churches.

    Sometimes they’re invisible. If you blink while driving past them you’ll miss them. Or they’re eyesores - run down, weather worn.

    In my 20 years covering local religion for the newspaper, I’ve gotten to know the people at some of these little churches.

    I’ve attended their services and could count the people in the pews with two hands and not need a third.

  • Shall we brag?

    One of my favorite stories is the one where my friend Mike announced that he had given up pride for Lent.

    He was so proud of his decision, couldn’t wait to start. Just knew he’d nail it.

    That was about seven or so years ago and we still laugh about it.

  • Lady Raiders Softball Coach appreciates support at Apple Festival

    Editor:

    I would personally like to thank the community for all their support to our program during the Trimble County Apple Festival. I also know there were others that came from out of town just to get one of our apple dumplings, so thank you all as well.

    I also want to apologize to all of you who didn’t get one. We have run out the past two years on Sunday afternoon.

    But, thanks to everyone’s support, we raised some much-needed money for our travel expenses for the upcoming season.

  • Milton utility addresses concerns of letter in Aug. 29 Banner

    Editor:

    This letter is in response to the letter submitted to The Trimble Banner from Candice Humphrey.
    Letters were mailed in March 2012 to all Milton Water and Sewer customers explaining the new rates.

    Ms. Humphrey called our $50 reconnect fee outrageous. I suggest Ms. Humphrey contact Trimble County Water and Shelby Energy to get their reconnect fees. If so, she will find our reconnect fee is the lowest of the three.
