    Anyone want to try an “Iron Man” competition? It’s only a 140.6-mile distance, which must be completed between 7:00 a.m. and midnight the same day, and involves a 2.4-mile swim, 112-mile bike ride and finally a marathon run of 26.2 miles.
    It was exhausting sitting there and hearing about this at the recent Bedford Club meeting on Feb. 11. John and Stacey Crawley of Crawley Heating and Cooling, Madison, provided a comprehensive overview of the program, of which they are participants.  

  • Good Samaritan of Trimble County

    Special to The Trimble Banner
    Thirteen-year-old Trystan Liter recently demonstrated a random act of kindness placing him in the category of a Good Samaritan. Instead of asking for presents at his birthday party, Liter requested all of his guests bring canned goods.
    Trystan explained, “My parents provided me with a great party at the old elementary school in Milton. I really didn’t need anything else. Therefore, I had my friends donate canned goods so we could give them to a local food bank.”
