  • RAIDERS’ BASKETBALL PREVIEW

    Get ready for the “new look” of Raider basketball.
    Many of the faces on the floor will be familiar. Most of those on the sidelines will be new. This year’s Raiders are pumped and ready to spring into the “Leep Era” of Trimble County basketball.

    John Leep III has replaced Bob Lauster at the helm of the boys’ basketball program. While retaining freshman coach Joe Perkinson from the Lauster program, Leep has brought a new bench of assistants from Carroll County, his alma mater.

  • GIVE THANKS

    “Thou great I AM,” the Puritans wrote in “The Valley of Vision,” “I acknowledge and confess that all things come of Thee — life, breath, happiness, advancement, sight, touch, hearing, goodness, truth, beauty — all that makes existence amiable.”

    Thou truly are a great and gracious God who has been truly good to me.

    Thank you, Lord, for the pleasures of life, for work and sleep, for irritants that refine my rough edges, for hard times that make me tough and good times that make me smile.

  • Nation has much for which to be thankful

    As we take time out of our schedule this week to enjoy the kick-off to the holiday season, I want to wish each of you a Happy Thanksgiving.

    We are now just one decade away from the 400th anniversary of that famous feast enjoyed by the Pilgrims and the Native Americans who helped them weather especially tough times.

    Though that harvest meal is the foundation for the holiday, it didn’t settle into its familiar place on the calendar until nearly 150 years ago, when President Lincoln declared it should be held on the last Thursday of November.

  • DO YOU REMEMBER?
  • Thanksgiving in America: How the holiday has evolved

    The Thanksgiving Day holiday is an American tradition dating to the time of the Pilgrims at Plymouth, Mass., in the early 17th century. What was once a singular occurrence of thankfulness among a colony of strangers in a new land for the blessings of Providence in their first year in New England has since evolved through multiple cultural changes as each new generation survived the last to become akin to a bridesmaid in the shadow of the commercially popular Christmas holiday season.

  • Volunteers sought to mentor children

    With the recent news stories about child abuse, and death, it is easy to turn away and let the social service system deal with the problems.

    In Trimble Family Court, the events that sometimes bring out the worst in parents are examined and remedies are put into place. But family court judges, lawyers and social workers have hundreds of cases each year, and sometimes, the child goes back to the same home with the parents or caregivers that mistreated them in the first place.
