  • JMK declared the winner after controversy-filled Columbia Cup

    J. Michael Kelly, driving the U-5 Graham Trucking, was named the winner of the 2016 HAPO Columbia Cup on Sunday after a controversy-filled final heat.
    Fans might have left the shoreline of the Columbia River thinking that Jimmy Shane drove the U-1 Miss HomeStreet Bank (Miss Madison) to victory.
    Shane had been driving in Lane 1 of the five-lap final, when he and Jean Theoret in the U-16 Oh Boy! Oberto — driving in Lane 2 — collided in the turn.
    Race officials immediately handed Theoret a one-lap penalty.

  • Missionaries of secularism target judge

    Just when I think I’m not so bad, something happens to show me that I am so bad – bad to my rotting bones.
    There’s this person.
    For some reason I feel an intense, irrational, utterly petty competitiveness with her, even though we’re not competitors in any area whatsoever. Frankly, I don’t think she even knows who I am, but I sure know who she is.
    I make it my business to know her business and am giddy with glee whenever something goes even a little bit askew in her life.

  • Three inches of water

    I inherited my creative urge from my grandmother. With her bright blue eyes sparkling, whenever she walked in a room you knew everything was going to be better simply by being in her presence. Always an optimist, she would give home-spun wisdom and encouragement: “Don’t borrow troubles from tomorrow, there is sufficient ones for today,” or “You can’t see over the hill or around the corner,” to quote a few.

  • LOOKING BACK

    August 7, 1986 (30 years ago)
    More than 30 Trimble County farmers participated in “Operation Haylift,” an effort to donate hay to farmers in the drought-stricken South. Over 3,000 bales of hay were hauled from Trimble County to a railroad car pickup point at Shelbyville. One local farmer hauled 250 bales to Shelbyville himself.
