• Bedford Fire Chief writes to thank public servants for their service and sacrifice


    With this last week being a time of great reflection and remembering in our nation’s history I would like to take this opportunity to give thanks. I would like to thank all the service men and women who have served and are serving this great country. Your job is one with huge sacrifices and sometimes horrible consequences.

  • LG&E neighbor concerned over fly-ash landfill plans


    For the last 24 years, my family and I have lived in a beautiful country setting next to land owned by LG&E. After doing nothing to their land for all this time, LG&E has submitted an application for a permit to construct a fly ash landfill directly across from our home, in which I have a state-certified day care.

  • Appreciation expressed for Bedford Bash sponsors, volunteers

    Dear Editor. Merchants, Fellow Business People and Individuals:

    The 22nd Annual Bedford Bash was a hit. We raised over $300.00 for the needy kids Christmas party through the sale of T-shirts. We gave away several prizes and had a great time. I have heard several positive comments on Young Country and the 5th Annual Car Show.  

    Congratulations to the Trimble Banner for winning the Window Decorating Contest.

    This is just a note to tell you how Kline, I, and all those that faithfully attend Callis Grove Camp certainly appreciate the wonderful job you did on the Callis Grove Camp article. It was very timely as just before the camp started. It took lots of time gathering the info although we know you personally knew lots of info about the old camp.

  • Reader enjoyed Callis Grove article


    As a current member on the board of Callis Grove camp meeting I read with great interest the article last week in The Banner about the camp. I would like to express my sincere thanks for the wonderful article you wrote. The pictures were good also. It took some people back to the old days of camp meeting. I talked to some who said they remembered those days. Thanks for all the time and effort you put into the article. Not only myself but I heard others comment on what a good article it was. Thanks again.

  • Band Booster expresses thanks for band support


    The Trimble County Band Boosters would like to thank Lois Adair and Debbie Noblin for being so helpful and nice to the band last week during Band Camp. It takes a community to support small band programs like we have at Trimble County and these ladies are fine examples of the community.

  • Cross country parent writes in support of Coach Vincent


    I am writing in regards to the article that was in the July 20 edition entitled “TCHS track/cross country coach suspended.” The parent that provided the information for the paper failed to mention some important facts. My daughter has been a part of the track/cross country team for three years and I feel I may have some things to add.
