    Special to The Trimble Banner
    David Marsh visited TCMS last week to inspire and encourage students to plan for their future. He discussed his accomplishments in middle school, high school and now college.
    “If you want something the first step is to create a plan of action,” Marsh strategically explained. “As early as seventh grade I had a mind-set, I wanted to play football in college. I knew it would take hard work and dedication.”

  • My family and I were watching a Doomsday movie about a pair of rogue comets hitting the Earth causing an extinction level event. I really don’t know why I watch these kinds of movies because I am always disturbed afterwards and have trouble sleeping. I have insomnia so these worries about extinction level events do nothing to help me sleep; so I experience 4:30 a.m. This part of the morning is the time when my worries about all things dark and gloomy hold sway over my thoughts.
