  • TIM COONS -- INCUMBENT

    The Trimble Banner Each of the three challengers for Trimble County sheriff in the May 18 Primary Election have stressed the belief that residents need to know they can call on the sheriff or his deputies 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Incumbent Tim Coons couldn’t agree more. He says that’s why he’s worked for nearly eight years to increase the staff in

  • Crawford announces bid for District 3 magistrate

    Editor: Our community is filled with people rich in diversity, abilities, opinions, talents and creative thinking, deserving of elected officials who are accessible and willing to listen. Officials should be working closely with constituents to find appropriate solutions to individual and community concerns. My personal and professional ex

  • Recent letter gave misinformation about TCHS prom policy

    Sadly, I am not perfect. I am reminded of that regularly – especially on Wednesdays when the paper hits the newsstands. That’s when I get calls from people letting me know that something we printed wasn’t quite right – or, sometimes, just plain wrong. I hate that. But, it happens, and I do my best to set the record s

  • Panthers give up two runs in the seventh, fall 4-3

    With two outs and a 3-2 lead in the top of the seventh inning, it looked like the Panthers had the game wrapped up against the visiting Simon Kenton squad. A ground ball was hit to junior third baseman Zach Wise for the seemingly third out of the game. However, the ball sailed on him, past the first baseman, allowing the tying run on base. A

  • Writer still waiting for paving in Milton

    Editor: I am happy for Mr. Dunn that he got his road paved. That is more than I can say for the northern part of Trimble County. There are two roads in Carmel Heights Subdivision that have been on the county road map since 1964 that have never been graded or graveled. So you can call that a good county official. I don’t think so. Of course, I don’t live south off th

  • CHIP PERRY -- CHALLENGER

    The Trimble Banner Chip Perry said he has covered at least three-quarters of the county while campaigning for Trimble County sheriff. “I’ve been knocking on a lot of doors. I’m amazed how many people have dogs,” he said, adding that he has learned to always carry dog biscuits while stumping. “I’m g

  • Trimble County voters urged to get to the polls May 18

    Over the past couple of weeks, I have been talking with candidates for Trimble County judge-executive and sheriff. We are presenting stories on the race for sheriff in the April 28 issue and for judge-executive race in the May 5 issue. I wish I could do more in-depth stories on the magistrate and jailer races, but I had to limit myself to the top two r

  • Please don’t vandalize candidates’ signs

    Editor: Election time is here again. Those entering the political race are going door to door for meet-and-greets, spreading their messages. And the signs, yes all those signs, are popping up everywhere to remind you just who would like to be your next elected official. To some, these signs are annoying and sometimes overwhelming; but to those who ar

  • Thieves hit area vending machines

    Kentucky State Police are asking the public for help in identifying two men who allegedly have broken into vending machines in Henry and Trimble counties. The latest incident occurred over the weekend at the Milton Car Wash in downtown Milton, next to the Swifty gas station, according to Trooper Michael Webb, public affairs officer for KSP Post 5 in Campbellsburg. The two men wer
