• Concerns answered


    I am the president of Milton Fire and Rescue writing in response to Mr. Graves’s letter in the April 4 Trimble Banner. This letter and these comments are my own.

    These are some things the people of Milton and Trimble County need to know about.

    First, the Tornado Victims Benefit Concert, held for all those affected by the March 2 tornadoes—although light in turnout—was a success.

  • Reader has concerns about fire department


    This is something the people of Milton and Trimble County need to think about. First off, I hope the Tornado Victims Benefit Concert on Saturday, March 31, was a great success. There were several victims in Trimble County that lost everything they own and others that needed help. I wish them the very best.

  • EPA regulations need support from all

    New EPA regulations proposed for limiting carbon pollution, soot, toxic mercury and other pollutants coming from coal-fired power plants are long overdue and can result in better health for our citizens, create jobs and counter climate change.

  • TCEM director thanks all for help after storm

  • Milton Fire & Rescue seeks local donations


    On March 2, 2012, Milton Fire & Rescue Station No. 2 in Milton Kentucky was hit by an EF-3 tornado. We lost the Station, a 1983 Spartan Fire Engine, a mobile fish fry trailer, some gear, radios and pagers, and some other items that were stored at this station. Our Fire Department is an all-volunteer department that relies on donations only since we are not a taxing department.

  • Hotel group calls for opposition to tax hike


    Please take up the voice of Kentucky citizens to defeat another tax increase.

    House Bill 368 is working through the Legislature. This bill will enable cities across the state to charge an additional three percent tax on restaurant sales. This is a fifty percent tax increase on restaurant meals. This is a sneak attack to raise taxes on every citizen in the Commonwealth.
    These taxes will just be passed on to the citizens, and make every restaurant meal more expensive.

  • Time to clean up Bedford Cemetery


    Spring is just around the corner and it is time to clean up the Bedford Cemetery.

  • Bedford Fire Department soliciting subscriptions


    All citizens and members of the community are reminded that it is the time of the year when the Bedford Volunteer Fire & Rescue Department is asking for your help with yearly subscriptions. These subscriptions are used to fund the department with utilities, training, fuel, equipment, maintenance of building and equipment, and other needs to serve the community in the Bedford Fire District.
