    Strawberry diseases and trickling irrigation kept the attention of a group of horticulturists from all over the Louisville area during a field trip in Trimble county last Friday. Sponsored by the University of Kentucky Cooperative Extension Service, the trip focused on problems and solutions in strawberry renovation, disease control, trickling irrigation, and other farm concerns. Specialists from the University of Kentucky traveled with the group of about 15 to various parts of Bray Orchards to inspect tomato, pepper, and raspberry fields.

    Bedford town board member Woody Bruther handed in a letter of resignation at Monday night’s board meeting. Bruther stated in his closing statement, “In the 3-and-a-half years, I have served on the board, I have tried to serve well. Due to the negative response from the board, I feel it is best to resign.”  Bruther said he felt defeated over the issues of unsafe houses in town and the board’s unwillingness to allow the city police officer to carry a gun.

  • Research contends that men perceive colors differently than women. I can’t recall where I read this information, but I’m inclined to agree. My husband has lived in our house for fourteen years, ten of those years were before we met and married. Consequently, the painting and improvements made to the house were done B.C. - Before Crystal.  I don’t have any delusions about being an interior designer; however I do know what I like regarding interior design.

  • Our house has a type of staircase which is fairly typical in an older home. The stairs are very narrow and steep. They climb in their steep, narrow way to a second story, which must have been designed for Lilliputians. Not only are the stairs unsuitable for any member of my tall family, the ceilings in the upstairs rooms slope down. I can’t count the times I’ve nearly concussed myself when I forgot the clearance level in my closet.

    Local crops are early this year, due to an unusually dry, warm spring. Probably the farmers who will benefit most from the lack of moisture are the strawberry growers. The strawberries are already ripening and according to several sources who have sampled them they are luscious and especially sweet. The berries are being readied for market and “U pick ‘ems” are about two to three weeks earlier than usual. Several of the picking fields are already open for business.

  • I broke the trash can. I didn’t exactly break it, more like dislocated it; and it wasn’t the entire trash can, just the lid- typical. Needless to say this was another fine example of the way most of my days progress. My motto is “If it can be broken, it will be broken.” It’s not that my aim is destruction; it simply seems to be the outcome.

  • Crystal Caudillo, new columnist for The Trimble Banner, was born and raised in Crestwood. She attended college at Murray State University where she received a Bachelor’s degree. She received a Master’s Degree from Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville.
    “Both degrees were in communication disorders which trained me to become a speech therapist,” she says. “I worked as a speech therapist in the public school systems in Kentucky, Indiana and Illinois.

  • Our home resembles an airport terminal during the height of the holiday season. I don’t mean we have planes departing and arriving. Nor do I mean we have luggage carousels frustrating passengers once they realized they landed in Louisville and their luggage is somewhere in Houston. What I mean is we have several creatures, of assorted species, in perpetual motion.

    The Trimble County School Board voted last Wednesday to discontinue the varsity football program. Superintendent J.W. Sachleben said the decision was based on a lack of interest in football among the available male students and not enough numbers to play the game. During last year’s season, several of the players quit, a couple of the team’s best players were forced to the sidelines because of injuries and as a result the varsity roster dropped to only 12 players. Two games were cancelled.
