  • Warm, sunny days are the perfect occasion to hit the road to discover new things. But the dream of getting away may seem impossible to some of us when the costs of traveling, including food, lodging and entertainment, are piled on top of everyday living expenses.
    These tips may make it easier for you to get away without breaking the bank.

    Special to The Trimble Banner
    The past several years Bedford Rotary Club has been treated with visitations from Trimble County Middle School Beta Club members, along with their sponsor/teacher, Crystal Harris.

    The following cases were heard the week of April 25, 2016 in Trimble County District Court, the Honorable Diana E. Wheeler presiding:

  • I threw newspapers when I was twelve years old. One of my early morning customers was Mr. Striplin, the president of our local bank. On a pre-dawn morning as I struggled with a bike load of papers, he stepped out from his door and said, “Bruce, you need a motorcycle”

  • Note: On May 3, my husband and I will be married 41 years. I’ve adapted this column from 2009.
    While out for our semi-regular Sunday drive, as I flipped through the radio stations I asked my husband what kind of music he liked.
    That’s the kind of questions you ask on a first date, not after 41 years of marriage!
    I’m not sure what that says about the state of our marriage. You don’t even know what kind of music your husband likes?
