  • Grad urges: ‘Believe in yourself!’

    The following is a story by a student, Thomas Moody Jr., that came to JCTC Trimble County Adult Education in June, 2017:

    Adult Ed has given me the opportunity for a bright future. I have heard all my life that I can’t and I believed it even though my small support team would say “yes you can.” My previous school said I would not graduate high school and I would not be able to pass the GED exam. The school withdrew me and I didn’t fight because I thought they were right.

    While high school halls are typically vacant on a Saturday afternoon; on Oct. 28 that was not the case. Early in the evening it was filled with young performers cascading down the halls, cloaking the average windows and walls into a stretch of horror and fear. Outside the high school you may have heard music from the Halloween dance, or screams from the haunted house—both of which resulted in a tremendous success.

  • Roll clocks back Saturday night

    Kentucky Press News Service
    Daylight Saving Time will come to an end Sunday as the nation switches back to Standard Time.
    The change, as usual, will be at 2 a.m., but most people change their clocks by turning them back one hour before going to bed the evening before which, in this case, will be Saturday. That means, for example, if going to bed at 11 p.m., turn your clocks back to 10 p.m. before going to sleep. Then they will have the correct time on Sunday morning and you will have gotten an extra hour of sleep.
