  • Research contends that men perceive colors differently than women. I can’t recall where I read this information, but I’m inclined to agree. My husband has lived in our house for fourteen years, ten of those years were before we met and married. Consequently, the painting and improvements made to the house were done B.C. - Before Crystal.  I don’t have any delusions about being an interior designer; however I do know what I like regarding interior design.

  • Our house has a type of staircase which is fairly typical in an older home. The stairs are very narrow and steep. They climb in their steep, narrow way to a second story, which must have been designed for Lilliputians.

    The Trimble County School Board voted last Wednesday to discontinue the varsity football program. Superintendent J.W. Sachleben said the decision was based on a lack of interest in football among the available male students and not enough numbers to play the game. During last year’s season, several of the players quit, a couple of the team’s best players were forced to the sidelines because of injuries and as a result the varsity roster dropped to only 12 players. Two games were cancelled.
