    By Trevor Browning
    Special to The Trimble Banner
    Last week, the Trimble County Drama Club kicked off their 2016-2017 season with their performance of “White Christmas,” which, unlike most iterations of the holiday classic, was loyally based on the 1954 film and was also the first known stage adaption of said treatment—meaning that some of the songs from the film like “Minstrel Show,” “Mandy” and “Choreography” were included in the show and performed for perhaps the first time on the Trimble County stage.

  • All I want for Christmas... Part 10

    To me Christmas is giving to each other and seeing your loved ones. Christmas is also about the birth of Jesus Christ. Christmas isn’t about getting gifts it’s about giving gifts. Be grateful you get gifts.

  • All I want for Christmas... Part 9

    Snowy Woods
    Snow, snow, snow
    I watch you fill the woods with snow
    And people walk throw you making a crunch, crunch, crunch noise
    I make a snow angel
    Which brings me happiness
    And sometimes you make me cold
    The wind against my thick coat
    Make me love winter snow
    So much more

    Dear Santa,
    Hello, my name is Logan.  I am 7 years old.  I am in second grade.  How do you get into a house without a chimney?  How are you doing? How many reindeer do you have?  This year I would like these gifts.  I would like a 6-pack Fanta, Mindcraft story mode, X-box one, Call of Duty Ghosts. I think I have been good this year.  Here’s what I have done to earn these gifts.  I cleaned up my room.  I’ve been good.  I’ve done chores.  Your friend,
    Logan Craig
