  • Items published in court news are public record.

    Crime reports are provided by local law enforcement agencies. Charges or citations reported to The Trimble Banner do not imply guilt.
    The following cases were heard the week of April 4:

  • As you tackle spring cleaning, don’t forget your refrigerator! Keeping your refrigerator clean is an important part of keeping your food safe.

  • What has had seven, or possibly eight broken noses, two blown out knees, two wrecked ankles, a few mangled toes, two ravaged hips, and an absolutely destroyed back? The answer to this riddle is my husband and I. He was a sports jock and I was a rock jock. If it involved bunting, punting, running, sprinting, jumping, tackling, passing, sliding, batting, and came with a referee, he was your man.

  • A young soldier and his commanding officer boarded a train and sat down next to a grandmother with her pretty young granddaughter. As the train roared through the tunnel you heard a kiss and a slap.
    The commanding officer was rubbing his cheek as they rolled out of the tunnel. He was thinking, “The young lady was aiming for the soldier and hit me instead.”
    The grandmother was thinking “Good for my granddaughter, standing up for herself like that, that will teach that young whippersnapper a lesson.”

  • The other day my husband opened up both of the closet doors in our bedroom and pointed out that my stuff has progressively crept into his closet and that I should do something about it.
    “Like throw your stuff out to make more room for mine?” I asked.
    Um, the answer to that would be no.
    So, I got a plastic bag and started filling it with clothes I no longer wear, and then I started going through old file folders filled with notes and beginnings of columns. That always prompts a bits and pieces column, like today’s. So, here goes:

  • April 17, 1986 (30 years ago)
    The Trimble County Public Library staff will begin re-registration of patrons on April 10, 1986, according to Librarian Patti Abell. To re-register a patron needs only to come into the library or bookmobile to fill out an application. The patron will then be given a “borrowers card.” The card is embossed with a metal plate which states the borrower’s name. In the future no one will be allowed to borrow material from the Trimble County Public Library without presenting their borrower’s card.

    The Milton City Commission will meet at 7:00 p.m. at the Milton Municipal Building.
    Trimble County Senior Citizens golf lesson with Don Bowling at Cardinal Hills Golf Course at 10:00 a.m.

  • The City of Bedford will be hosting a 200-year celebration party to commemorate the town’s founding in 1816. Records show the settlement now known as Bedford was organized with elected officials and streets were laid out late in 1815 with a gentleman named Jack Pryor being elected as Mayor of Bedford. Kentucky Secretary of State’s records show the town was founded Feb. 6, 1816. 

  • Trimble CARES Coalition is hosting a “CARES FOR LIFE 5K Run/Walk” in the city of Bedford this Saturday, April 16, 2016. This run/walk is to bring unity to Trimble County and take a stand against substance use and cancer!
    Organizers say this will be a large substance-free event. Activities for children will be available as well as substance abuse and primary health resources.
    All proceeds will benefit “Trimble County Relay for Life” and “Trimble CARES Coalition.”
