    Some pretty amazing, less-known, positive happenings are going on in our county. Often, as we “long out of school” citizens are quick to criticize local school activities as somewhat distant and disconnected (except if we have kids in sports of course), find that many school connected educational programs are reaching out, working to provide community educational and volunteer opportunities. Such is the “Community Education Program” (CEP) of Kentucky.

  • Trimble County Schools will be hosting special events in conjunction with Veterans Day next week. As Veterans Day officially falls on Saturday this year, scheduled events will be held during the week prior at both elementary schools.
    Milton Elementary School’s Veterans Day luncheon and program will be on Wednesday, Nov. 8, with the veterans’ lunch at 12:30 and the program at 1:15 p.m.

    Sarah said if she got a promotion she’d like to be promoted to potentate -- that sounds like a cool thing to be, she said.
    It reminded me of the hymn, “Crown Him With Many Crowns,” in which Jesus is called “the potentate of time,” and also reminded me that a few years ago, Sarah gave me a very old hymnal, copyrighted in 1924, called “Harvest Hymns.”
