    “We better watch the weather tonight, I heard bad weather is coming!”
    That was the comment from my husband last Tuesday night, Feb. 28. Wow! Was he correct! WAVE 3 had three meteorologists analyzing and reporting what they knew about the storm, throughout the night. They were providing the general public with times, areas, and expectations. Their timeline was impeccable.

    After having a wonderful year last year, the JCTC Trimble County Adult Education center is experience extremely low numbers of students. Our rankings in the state are very bad at this time. As mentioned in the last notes, we desperately need assistance from our community partners to let students know about our services.  At this time and while funds are available, we are paying for students to take the GED Test for free. We offer other testing for free, as well.
