  • Always handle firearms with care

    Fall brings with it hunting season, and Trimble County residents are urged to follow these gun-safety tips to prevent accidents at home or out in the field.

    Store ammunition and firearms in separate, locked cabinets or in closets that are inaccessible to children.

    Never store a firearm that is loaded. It is best to store it with the action open, or taken down when possible.

    Always handle a firearm as if it were loaded, but always check to see if it is loaded when handling it.

  • Milton PTO grateful for Fish Fry/Auction support

    Editor:

    The Milton Elementary School PTO, faculty, staff – and especially, our students – would like to thank everyone who came out in support of our annual Fish Fry and Auction.

    The cool, crisp fall day was perfect weather for a delicious fish sandwich, homemade cole slaw and baked beans.

    We would like to thank the businesses and individuals in our community for supporting us year after year.

  • Shooting of dog an unnecessary, heinous crime

    I  love animals. They hold a huge spot in my heart, and I’ve worked with a group in Carroll County for nearly eight years that tries to find new homes for strays and unwanted or neglected animals there.

    I have a soft heart that has resulted in the adoption of many stray animals during my adult life.

    Now that you know this about me, imagine how I felt when I first heard a dog had been shot to death in one of our neighborhoods in Trimble County.

The professionalism and compas

  • Area officials, public offered Open Meetings/Open Records seminar

    I would like to extend my gratitude to the Kentucky Press Association, the Institute for Rural Journalism and Community Issues, and the Scripps Howard First Amendment Center at the University of Kentucky. Spurred by a suggestion I made to KPA Executive Director David Thompson last month, these three Kentucky journalism heavy-hitters have scheduled a Sunshine Seminar for 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Thur

  • Stauffer Drive residents plan to vote for Callis

    Editor: We are the citizens of Stauffer Farms in southern Trimble County. We have been pleading with the county for the last year to pave Stauffer Drive, which is a gravel road. The dust is choking us and is straining our air-conditioning units. Magistrate Kirby Melvin disregards our calls and ignores our complaints. We have been attending Fiscal Court meetings every month, pleading our

  • Search group grateful for fund-raiser support

    Editor: The Trimble County Emergency Search Unit has had a good year. We have had several members certified in “man tracking,” basic search and rescue, and wilderness/advanced first aid. We would like to say thank-you to everyone who helped by buying ice cream at our fund-raising booths at the Trimble County Fair, the Bedford Bash and the Trimble County Apple Festival. We do appre

  • Make Halloween a safe night for children

    Editor: Halloween in Trimble County is 6-8 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 30. Here are some simple ways to make trick-or-treating a safe experience for children. Many Halloween accidents, from skinned knees to pedestrian traffic fatalities, can be traced to a child’s inability to see steps, curbs and vehicles because of ill-fitting masks. Be sure your child’s mask so that he or she can see obs
