Today's Opinions

  • Alumni event short on attendance but enjoyable

    Saturday’s annual gathering of the alumni of Trimble County’s schools was somewhat disappointing for alumni banquet organizers.

    Don’t get me wrong. The meal prepared by the Trimble County school corporation’s cafeteria staff was nothing short of excellent. The fellowship of those in attendance was enthusiastic and cheerful. The Bedford Elementary School cafeteria facility provides an outstanding venue for revelers from school days past.

    What was missing? You!

  • LOOKING BACK

    30 Years Ago

    April 23,1981

    The iron gates at the entranceway of Moffett Cemetery were stolen Thursday or Friday of last week. Placed there more than 90 years ago, the gates definitely are antique vintage and, doubtless, very valuable. Vincent Oakley discovered the gates missing Saturday morning. He said the gates would be easily identified by the lions’ heads so decoratively atop the iron uprights of the gates.

  • Wrapup of Senate session

    As with much of life, the 2011 General Assembly Session had its share of successes and disappointments. We made advances in economic development, education, and healthcare and definitely raised the debate on what is the appropriate conservative use of the tax dollar and did our best to sound the alarm about what happens when the bill finally comes due.

  • Letter to the Editor

    Editor:

    I was very fortunate to have attended the 2011 Washington, D.C., trip with the Trimble County High School junior and senior students on April 4-8. While there, I spent much time with the students and faculty sponsors. As a military veteran, the trip was my first to our nation’s capital. The trip could not have been more special, due to the wonderful students of TCHS.

  • Call local bee collector if hives unwanted

    Editor:

    I am writing in response to an article from The Spring Spruce-up, inserted in last week’s The Trimble Banner. The article called bees pests, (cutline under picture) and said “bees are among the many insects that return to wreak havoc on homeowners”
