    Trimble County senior Lora McCoy has signed a letter of intent to play basketball at Georgetown College. Last season Lora led the Lady Raiders with a 11.7 points per game scoring average. She was named to the North Central Kentucky Conference All-Conference Team, 31st District Tournament All-District Team and the All-Carroll County Invitational Team. Georgetown coach Susan Johnson said McCoy is the second Trimble girl to be signed to play basketball at Georgetown. Holly Kries played for Georgetown some years ago.

  • Last week, the Rev. Doug Shepherd died.
    I met him in 2002 at his auto parts business.
    His dad was in the auto business too, and they were both Pentecostal preachers.
    I had been writing a story for the paper about the 100th anniversary of Pentecostalism, and although I had lots of history and background information, I wanted to talk to a real-live Pentecostal.
    At the time, “Brother Shepherd” preached on Sundays, but during the week he fixed cars.

  • My home has somehow spawned a new, hybrid, highly toxic variety of dust. I’m not entirely sure if it’s a new permutation or a ghastly amalgamation brewed by the contributions of each individual dust-producer in my home.
    The dust producers are, in no particular order, cats, dogs, dust mites, my family, and stuff tracked in from the yard. Stuff tracked in from the yard are, in no particular order, cats, dogs, birds, horses, squirrels, trees, grass, hay and the entire complement of every plant I’m raising or were blown there by a errant breeze.

    The Milton City Commission met last Thursday at the municipal building in Milton. Mayor Denny Jackson called the meeting to order at 7 p.m. After approving the minutes from the previous meeting and the monthly financial reports, the Commission had a second reading of the ordinance increasing the franchise fee for utility companies to 3 percent. In other business, the Commission chose to hire Angela Dunaway as city clerk. Commissioners Troy Alexander and Seth Willis abstained from voting to make the personnel change.
