  • Take ‘Reel Action’ against underage drinking

    I have a story to tell you. If you’re a parent, this could be tough reading; but, it’s necessary reading.
    If you’re a teenager, chances are you’ve heard a similar tale somewhere along the line.
    Either way, it will affect you. My hope is that it moves you to take some action – some “REEL” Action.

  • Humans can't follow rules, which is why God gave us 10

    I’m a recovering helicopter parent, having spent countless hours and huge amounts of energy hovering over my kids, trying to turn them into mini versions of myself.
    Unfortunately, or maybe fortunately, neither daughter is exactly like me, although they have both inherited the need for a “Do not touch” linen closet — shelves of carefully arranged towels and linens that are not to be touched. Ever.

  • Bedford PTA gives thanks to all Fall Festival supporters

  • Melvin thanks supporters, family for election victory

    Editor:

    I would like to thank those of you who came out and voted for me during the election. It humbles and pleases me to know you put your trust in me to lead this county forward with experience and fairness.

    I thank those, too, who supported me during the campaign and election with visits, encouragement and phone calls.

    Last but not least, a “Thank You” to my family.

  • 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.
