  • City doing the right thing by enforcing curfew violations

    Last week, Bedford city officials warned everyone; this week they’re publishing an old curfew ordinance. Next week, they’ll begin enforcing that ordinance in earnest.

    In a perfect world, curfew ordinances wouldn’t be necessary. Under-age children would be at home with their parents or guardians doing something productive and not out vandalizing other’s property.

    But this isn’t a perfect world.

    It was the first time the uniforms had seen light since last year’s team lost a playoff game against the No. 1 ranked Beechwood High School on Nov. 14. Beechwood eventually won the state championship.

  • Voter to Trimble sheriff: ‘Where’s the beef?’

    Editor:

    I would like to publicly ask our sheriff:  Where’s the Beef?  

    He promised us night patrols as part of his re-election campaign last time, but we still aren’t having any meat with our voting salad. We did get a U.S. Marshal, though – that really put the fear in our local delinquents and criminals!

  • Camp puts band students through tough paces

    TB Correspondent

    Trimble County school band members have one advantage over other students: For four days straight last week, they had a chance to get back into the early morning routine during band camp at Trimble County High School.

    Camp started daily at 8 a.m., and band members found themselves working hard until 8 p.m. If they were lucky, they could call it the day at 5:30 p.m. last week.

    Thursday was the only overnight for the squad, which slept over at the school. But, after a big breakfast, it was back to work at 8:15 a.m.
