    To start the new year, the Trimble County Public Library and the Trimble County High School partnered together to create scientific experiments.

  • Whenever I need big-time prayers, I go to the big guns: my 6-year-old great-niece, Leah.

    This past summer when Hurricane Irma was about to decimate Florida, Leah prayed for the “hurricane to go away” and especially that her “Tee Tee Nancy” wouldn’t be scared.

    Irma didn’t go away, but it did decrease enough in strength that at least my house didn’t blow away.

    So, I put that in the win column for Leah’s answered prayers.

    Plus, I wasn’t afraid, so that’s two wins for Leah.

    My family traveled to Arizona to see family. During the drive, it occurred to me that I couldn’t remember Arizona’s state motto. Despite bullying my memory to give up the goods, the answer stubbornly remained in hiding. In true Grinch fashion, I decided, “If I can’t remember the motto I’ll make one instead.” After making this decision the rest came easy. None of these are intended to mock Arizona or Arizonans. Some of my most beloved people live in this fascinating state.

  • During the snowy and icy months, a person’s risk of falling increases. Typical injuries include broken ankle, hip, arms and shoulders as well as head and back injuries. LIM College recommends the following safety steps to help you be careful in the winter:

    Walk like a penguin—flat footed and take short steps.

    Wear footwear that provides traction, such as flat and waffled rubber soles versus heals or leather.

    Step down, not out from curbs so that your foot does not slide.
