    The Trimble County Lady Raiders battled to two convincing home court wins in the past week, topping District foe North Oldham by a 46-32 score and overwhelming Gallatin County, 66-38.

    The Carroll County Panthers shot 55 percent from the field–including 8-15 from 3-point range–and allowed just 14 points in the first half to defeat visiting Trimble County, 66-34, Feb. 2.
    It was Carroll’s third straight win, their longest streak of the season thus far. “We finally got to the top of the hill, it looks like,” head coach Brian Crank said. “We knew it was coming, just a matter of time.”

    Every year, people who care go out and find the people who live in the woods or in their cars or sleep in abandoned buildings and get as much information about them as they can.
    People who care want to meet these people’s immediate and ongoing needs with tents and blankets and stoves, and also their long-term needs.

    The fifth week of the 2016 Legislative Session in Frankfort was historic in a number of ways. Governor Matt Bevin signed his first piece of legislation, Senate Bill (SB) 4. We also said goodbye to former State Senator and civil rights activist, Georgia Davis Powers.

  • Budget discussions moving forward in General Assembly

    Just as it is often said that games are won or lost during practice, a similar principle applies as well to legislation. Before a bill can clear the House or Senate, it has to make it through a committee first.
    That groundwork is especially crucial when it comes to the budget, which Gov. Bevin proposed late last month and the House Appropriations and Revenue Committee began reviewing in-depth last week. The chamber is on track to complete this work and vote by the early days of March.
