  • Improving your sleep patterns

    What you eat affects your ability to sleep. Avoid eating pasta and meat casserole late in the evening. Carbohydrates and protein, as well as sugary desserts can disturb restful sleep and may even keep a person awake. Sugar products can be related to moodiness and a racing mind. Poor digestion can be related to getting less sleep. Catnip/lemon balm tea and taking one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar with honey or Alovera Juice for indigestion.   

  • LOOKING BACK

    30 Years Ago (Sept. 23, 1982)
     Fiscal Court met Thursday morning at a special meeting to approve the issue of bonds in the amount of $50,000,000 for the LG&E company’s Trimble County Generating Station at Wise’s Landing. The money is to be used in the completion of the pollution control facilities there.

    The Bedford Town Board met Monday night and presented a proposal to annex the area near Bedford called Bedford Commons. The six-acre tract off Cutshaw Lane is the site of the HUD backed project.

  • DO YOU REMEMBER?
  • Why church?

    Scattered throughout any community are tiny, struggling churches.

    Sometimes they’re invisible. If you blink while driving past them you’ll miss them. Or they’re eyesores - run down, weather worn.

    In my 20 years covering local religion for the newspaper, I’ve gotten to know the people at some of these little churches.

    I’ve attended their services and could count the people in the pews with two hands and not need a third.

  • Area native author remembers ‘Growin’ Up Kentucky’

    By JULIE BALL HAMBRICK
    The Trimble Banner

    We live in disposable days: get it, use it, throw it away. With eyes glued to screens all day, we fail to see life as it is and was, beyond the digital world. We miss meaningful lessons others may leave behind. Unseen, these bits of history disappear without a trace.

  • County OKs Sheriff's Office requests

    The members of Trimble County Fiscal Court on Monday approved the expenditure of up to $10,000 for the purchase of tasers on behalf of the Trimble County Sheriff’s Department.

    The purchase would be made from county coffers, which would be reimbursed with funds appropriated for the purchase through a grant from the Kentucky Department of Homeland Security to the sheriff’s department.
