  • Tree,shrub, sidewalk sale notices draw fire

    Ordinance enforcement once again has taken a hefty chunk of Carrollton City Council’s time as residents flocked to a meeting to voice concerns.

    Letters informing residents and businesses they are in violation of various ordinances brought out many individuals to speak at the regular meeting of city council Monday, Aug. 24.

    Sidewalk sales and trees and shrubs blocking access or views were the two main points of concern for those attending the meeting.

    The Trimble Banner

    A customer who went inside Bedford’s Stop-N-Go while fueling her car about 9 p.m. Monday, Aug. 3, was responsible for a minor gasoline spill at the Marathon station there.

    Trimble County Sheriff Tim Coons said Dr. Donna Smith of Louisville left her car unattended while it was fueling. He said she  expected the gas pump’s automatic shut-off to kick in when the tank of her car was filled, while she went inside.

    It didn’t.

  • THE SECRET IS OUT

    Landmark News Service

    Art Alphin is ready to let the cat of the bag – a confession, if you will.

    Alphin, 61, a retired Army lieutenant colonel, opened a Bedford manufacturing company in January 1991 called A-Square. For nearly 20 years, the building that sits in behind the Bedford Water Company on U.S. 42 – and what went on inside – has been a mystery, except to a select few people.

    “The locals have had a lot of question about what went on in this building, and now they’ll know,” Alphin in an interview last week.

  • 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.
