  • Reader disapproves of Summit implementation

    Dear Mr. Blair,

    Congratulations on your courage and conviction to print the ‘Disgust and disappointment.’ article of June 27, 2019 in The Trimble Banner dealing with parent’s displeasure with Summit Learning. I myself am not a fan of the program and appreciated the justification of my opinion. I am happy knowing that I’m not the only one with a dissenting opinion.

  • 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.

    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.
