    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.

  • Captain David Whitten pulled up anchor and got his crew of four back under way Monday, June 15 beginning the second leg on their journey to the Gulf of Mexico on a hand made packet boat — the adventure of a lifetime.

    Whitten, who in his real life is a carpenter and contractor in Russell, Penn., said he was inspired by a book he read about Harlan Hubbard, a local man who built a shanty boat with his wife and lived on the river for years. If an older couple could do it, Whitten said, he believes five strapping young men and not quite so young men could certainly do it.
