    The Trimble County Public Library is holding a public hearing for setting at 9 a.m. Thursday, Sept. 3.

  • 20th ‘Bash’ was a smash

    Editor:

    The 20th Annual Bedford Bash was a hit. Also, we raised more than $500 for the needy kids’ Christmas Party from the sale of the T-shirts.

    I, personally, would like to thank the sponsors, merchants, vendors and volunteers for your support of the Bash, and would like to hear any suggestions of ways to improve the event.

    Without your commitment and the help of the bank’s staff, the Bash would not be the event it is. Thank you.

  • Here's my 2 cents on the Milton-Madison Bridge project
