    “I think we should have beat them because I believe we’re as good as they are. That’s what is frustrating to me as a coach!”

  • Athletic complex expenditures addressed

    Dear Readers,
    As we continue to get closer to Election Day I continue to hear of certain questions or statements that are made concerning the nickel tax. It has been my goal with my weekly article to provide as much factual information as possible and clear up misconceptions as I hear them. Please understand that there have been valid questions and concerns asked in the past months and I have been happy to have those brought to me. This week is no different. There are two items I would like to address this week.

  • Ode to lost sheep

    I have a Facebook friend in Colorado, another Christian writer I’ve met with a number of times over the years at various Christian publishing events.
    For the past few years she’s been writing about her oldest son, Zach, who is a drug addict.
    He’s had periods of being clean, but they haven’t lasted. Last summer he nearly died from a drug overdose -- his third overdose in less than a year -- and spent several days in ICU on a respirator, suffering seizures.

  • Big data dilemma

    All this uproar over government eaves dropping, hacked email accounts and “big data” collection has reminded me of my childhood. Aunt Geraldine was doing “big data” hacking back in the 1950s, she tipped the scales at 300 and it was called the party line. No need to get upset, as the Good Book says, “There is nothing new under the sun.” All I ask, if the government is eaves dropping on us, at least give everyone a chance to listen in and get in on the party…..line that is!

  • LOOKING BACK

    Sept. 25, 1986 (30 years ago)
    An extremely tired elderly man was happy to see rescuers Sunday night after he strayed from the Trimble Nursing Center and became lost. About 28 members of the Trimble County Rescue Squad, Milton Fire Department, Bedford Fire Department, both EMS units and several civilians responded to the call at the nursing home when the staff discovered that a resident, Wyatt Powell, was missing at about 8 p.m. Sunday. Powell was found at 9 p.m. about ¾ mile behind the nursing home, near a cornfield on an old logging road.

  • Consider conversion of Trimble LG&E plant to gas

    By Charles R. Liston, Ph.D
     My residence is just above Wise’s Landing, just south of the Trimble generating station.  Thus, though I can view the Plant from our property, the proposed landfill does not directly affect me nearly as much as the unfortunate folks residing very close to this proposed development, and whose property values will no doubt plummet.  Some will no doubt have to move.
