    By Trevor Browning
    Special to The Trimble Banner
    In the spirit of the Halloween season, the Trimble County High School Drama Club will present their 2015 Haunted House production “Eaten Alive” this weekend at the high school.
    Many months have passed since the drama club’s last outing; their final show of the 2014-2015 season, “Plaza Suite.”

  • Bullying defined

    Dear Readers,
    Several years ago I was privileged enough to attend a training on Bullying presented by Dr. Allan L. Beane. Dr. Beane has been one of our nation’s leading experts on the topic for many years and having been exposed to his teachings I can vouch for his expertise.
    The topic of bullying is so important that it may take more than one week for me to address it so in the upcoming weeks there will be more information provided. I hope that it helps you as parents to be more aware of whether your child is being bullied or if your child is the bully.

    Landmark News Service
    The Carroll Count Panthers secured a spot in the district playoffs Friday night, defeating Trimble County 52-22 at Panther Field. With a week 11 bye, the Raiders end the season winless, 0-10.
    Trimble head coach Justin Franklin said it was more disappointing not being in the playoffs than it was being shutout this season.

  • We are all ‘millennials’

    Since last year I’ve gotten three new podmates at work, all millennials (those born in the 1980s to the early 2000s).
    One just turned 30, one just turned 27 and one, at 22, is younger than my favorite denim jacket that I still wear.
    I call them my pod kids and they call me their pod mom.
    Of the three, the 30-year-old was horrified to learn that she is a millennial. She had me watch a “Millennials in the Workplace” You Tube video that hilariously portrayed her generation as, among other things, always expecting a reward for doing their job.

    Kentucky’s sick road fund can’t provide essential highway services. And people in Trimble County are among those in the “growth” areas of the state who are paying a high price for inadequate roads. That was the message Kentuckiana Regional Planning and Development Agency’s board got today from Jack Fish, President of Kentuckians for Better Transportation, at a Bedford meeting.

  • Domestic violence, sex crimes, bullying addressed by forums

    As a matter of public policy, domestic violence, sexual assault, human trafficking and bullying were seldom discussed for much of our country’s history, much less adequately addressed. 
    Thankfully, that era is largely behind us. Today, society is much more aware of these acts of aggression and how to stop them, and as a result, we’re seeing a greater number of victims get the care they deserve.
    In many ways, Kentucky has been a leader among the states in this regard, and 2015 is poised to be remembered as a high-water mark in this journey.
