  • Workshop to offer discussion, education for managing diabetes

    Dear Editor,

    Nov. 14 may be National Diabetes Day but for me and countless others every day is a diabetes day. This means that we must always plan our schedule carefully, have a snack available and the constant concern for our blood sugar levels.

    Diabetes is not just about the one living with diabetes. Very early in the efforts of the local coalition in Henry County (Health and Wellness Coalition of Henry County) came up with this thought and it is our mantra:

    Diabetes is a personal diagnosis

    Diabetes is a family diagnosis

  • Letter to the editor | Oct. 25, 2018

    The first reading of this ordinance has just been passed by Trimble Co. Fiscal Court. Judge Jerry Powell, Magistrates David Scott and Don McCarty voted for it. I believe they have betrayed the majority of the people in Trimble Co. Fiscal Court is going to pass this ordinance and the people of Trimble Co. will suffer because of their action. They have a personal agenda and have deceived the people.

  • Trimble CARES thanks community for Friday Night Lights support

    Dear Editor,

    Our first Friday Night Lights was here and was greeted with rain, thunder, lightning and a bit of despair that all the preparations were down the drain. But lo and behold, dedicated volunteers began to arrive, the cheerleaders and their parents were preparing concession food, the band members were tuning up their instruments and community supporters were waiting in their cars for the doors to open.

  • Candidate addresses lack of questionnaire

    To the Editor:

    I saw the “Meet the Candidates” article in your paper and wondered why I hadn’t heard about it so that I could participate and express my views and goals for a better Trimble County that I have been working hard for.

  • Reader reminisces about 'Coach'

    Editor’s Note: The Banner received an anonymous letter identifying the “Do You Remember” picture from the Dec. 21 issue. Here is the letter in its entirety:

    Your mystery photo of Dec. 21, 2017 has come to my attention.

    I immediately recognized the man we call “Coach,” Mr. Lee Peyton Jr. He taught in Trimble County back then. He and his family lived near Campbellsburg, Ky. He was a fine guy that has been deceased a few years. He bravely fought a cancer that he lost his life to.
