  • Father’s ministry led editor’s family to Trimble County

    First of all, I am not a Trimble County native.
    I was hatched in a small hospital in the tiny, hospitable hamlet of Milan in Ripley County, Ind. Two years after Milan recovered from my birth tiny Milan High School won the Indiana high school basketball state championship. Yep, the same burr-headed Milan Indians that the movie “Hoosiers” was based on went to school with my older siblings. My brother still maintains contact with several of the former players these many years later.

  • Exercise restores vitality, rejuvenation

    I had a client named Frances who was always tired. She came to me because she had lost her zest for living and seemed to just drag through every day.
    I asked what used to bring her happiness and relaxation; she replied, without hesitation, music.
    So, she agreed to use music and movement to help improve her vitality. I put on some flowing mood music with wind instruments and told her to slow her breathing – inhaling and exhaling gently to relax to the rhythm of the music.

  • Mid-life crisis or ‘Extreme Makeover: Professional Edition’?

    I’m pretty sure it’s a mid-life crisis.
    But I can’t afford to buy a convertible, so I’ve decided, instead, to redefine myself – professionally speaking. Kind of like Madonna, but without the flair.
    It’s with mixed emotions that I put together my last issue as editor of The Trimble Banner. I’ve decided to start my own business and see what else is out there in the world.

  • Subscriptions due to Milton Volunteer Fire and Rescue

    Editor:

  • Strict spay/neuter laws likely would reduce shelter costs

    Animal control can be a large expense to county and metropolitan taxpayers, and there is one central reason why: irresponsible pet ownership.
    Basically, overcrowded animal shelters and overwhelmed animal welfare groups are cleaning up messes made by people who refuse to do the right thing when it comes to their pets. Trust me, I know exactly how expensive this can be.
    Over the past eight years or so, Trimble and Henry counties had been paying hundreds of thousands of dollars to the Kentucky Humane Society to handle local animal control.

  • Claifying the new subscription system for Banner website

    I’ve had several people ask me questions about last week’s front page article on our move to a subscription-based website, effective Feb. 23.
    Don’t worry. If you’re a subscriber to The Trimble Banner, you’ll have access all news and other content at MyTrimbleNews.com. Access to the website is free for all of our print subscribers.
    But you will have to take a few quick steps to get registered, then you’ll be ready to use the digital version of the newspaper.

  • FEBRUARY: EARTHQUAKE AWARENESS MONTH

    Earthquakes that occur in the New Madrid fault zone are potential threats to portions of seven U.S. states – Kentucky, Indiana, Tennessee, Illinois, Arkansas and Missouri.
    In Kentucky, the fault lies in Western Kentucky, crossing the Ohio River in two places.
    During a major earthquake, you may hear roaring or a rumbling sound that gradually grows louder. You may feel a rolling sensation that starts out gently and, within seconds, becomes violent.

  • Learning to let go allows woman to find true love

    I have an inspiring story about a very unhappy young woman who was one of my clients.
    Linda’s depression resulted from the break-up with her boyfriend months earlier. She had not been able to pick up the pieces and move on.
    Her thoughts kept returning to what she had lost and what she had done wrong. Mike, her ex, refused to talk to Linda, and he had actually started a serious relationship with Betty. It was up to Linda to work on building a path to her future.
