    Trimble County’s Raiders scored the first seven points of the game and Carroll County’s Panthers scored the final six in last week’s border rival clash at Bedford.

  • Party like a prodigal

    There’s a group of people in North Carolina who call themselves People of the Second Chance (POSC).
