  • Raider rally falls short, 5-4

    Down five runs heading into the sixth inning, the Raiders rallied, but fell just short, 5-4, to rival Carroll County on the road Thursday, March 22.

    “I’m really happy about that because we’ve had trouble with (closing out games) in the past,” Carroll first year head coach Josh Mefford said. “We’ve had those bad innings where we’ve kicked the ball around, but this time they hit the ball … We kept our heads in it, and we made the plays we were supposed to make.”

  • Lady Raiders take win, 3-2

    The Trimble County Lady Raiders notched their first win of the season in a down-to-the-wire battle against border rival Carroll County on the road Wednesday, 3-2.

    First-year head coach Tanya Black was overflowing with excitement following the game. “Our first two games we hit the ball pretty decent, but just couldn’t get over that hump and this time we fought hard and did well, very proud of them,” she said.

  • Where is God?

    Every time my town has an event that draws a lot of people, from a Saturday’s farmer’s market to a festival or parade, a local pastor and members of his church are there, handing out gospel tracts.
    During the St. Patrick’s Day parade, Brother Troy was on the corner, handing out tracts.

    The one he gave me had an I.Q. test on the front with only one question. “GODISNOWHERE — What does this say?”

    People either see “God is nowhere” or “God is now here.”

  • LOOKING BACK

    30 Years Ago (April 1, 1982)
    A group representing the Marble Hill nuclear power plant met Wednesday at the office of County Judge-Executive Clyde Greenwood and the gist of the discussion was along lines of procuring money for planning from the builders. Kentucky and Trimble County takes the position that Kentucky taxpayers shouldn’t pay a dime’s worth of cost for protection from something created by an Indiana based utility.

    James W. Egerton, Jr. has retired from the Jefferson Proving Ground after 31 years of combined military and civil service.

  • DO YOU REMEMBER?
  • The week in the Kentucky Senate

    While we passed several important bills this week, my time was dominated with review of the House’s proposal, House Bill 265, for the state’s two-year budget. The plan will be roughly $9 billion per year or $18 billion total. In that, the Senate proposal carries about 6.58 percent authorized debt which is lower than the House’s proposal of 6.8 percent and even lower than the Governor’s proposal of 7.1 percent.

  • This week in the Kentucky House

    In one key way, legislative sessions are a lot like March Madness: The intensity picks up as the number of days winds down.  That makes this week, then, the General Assembly’s version of the Final Four.
