    Of all the holidays the nation celebrates each year, only one calls on us to pay close attention to the clock: Veterans Day.

  • Thanks extended to Project Comfort

    Editor:

    To the people from Project Comfort who came to my home and dug my water line, what kind and generous people you are to give your time and equipment for such a big job.

  • Beautify the county, hit the streets to take down campaign signs

    Now that the election is over, it’s time for the cleanup to begin.

    Some of you might think I’m talking about cleaning up the airwaves after all of the disgusting mud-slinging forced into our households through television campaign ads. Others might believe I’m talking about the mess in government. Pick your area of concern and the level of government  — local, county, state or national.

  • Stauffer Drive residents plan to vote for Callis

    Editor: We are the citizens of Stauffer Farms in southern Trimble County. We have been pleading with the county for the last year to pave Stauffer Drive, which is a gravel road. The dust is choking us and is straining our air-conditioning units. Magistrate Kirby Melvin disregards our calls and ignores our complaints. We have been attending Fiscal Court meetings every month, pleading our

  • Search group grateful for fund-raiser support

    Editor: The Trimble County Emergency Search Unit has had a good year. We have had several members certified in “man tracking,” basic search and rescue, and wilderness/advanced first aid. We would like to say thank-you to everyone who helped by buying ice cream at our fund-raising booths at the Trimble County Fair, the Bedford Bash and the Trimble County Apple Festival. We do appre

  • Make Halloween a safe night for children

    Editor: Halloween in Trimble County is 6-8 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 30. Here are some simple ways to make trick-or-treating a safe experience for children. Many Halloween accidents, from skinned knees to pedestrian traffic fatalities, can be traced to a child’s inability to see steps, curbs and vehicles because of ill-fitting masks. Be sure your child’s mask so that he or she can see obs
