    The Trimble Banner
    Two defeats at the hands of the Walton-Verona Bearcats earlier in the season did not deter the Trimble County Lady Raiders from continuing their march to the Kentucky High School Athletic Association’s Sweet Sixteen. Trimble dismantled WV in Friday’s semifinal game by a 44-40 score to advance into Saturday’s championship matchup with favored Simon Kenton.

  • Wanting and getting more

    Once upon a time I had $3 pants.
    Dark, forest-y green rayon pinstriped dress slacks, with teeny flecks of black in the fabric. Regularly $45 marked down to $14.29 with an additional 30 percent off, then another 70 percent off -- $3 pants!
    I was so excited about my purchase that when I got them home I immediately put them in a place of honor in my closet and sat on my bed to admire my precious find.
    That’s when I realized I had nothing to wear with them. After much thought I decided a collarless black jacket would be perfect to go with my $3 pants.

  • Pro-life bill, other measures get Senate nod

    The passage of bills that would help children with disabilities, preserve rights of victims in criminal cases, and fight for the rights of the unborn highlighted another busy week in the Senate. As Thursday marked day 40 of our 60-day legislative session in Frankfort, we are still anxiously awaiting a budget bill from our colleagues in the House.

  • Final weeks of legislative session should be hectic

    As college basketball fans prepare for the postseason, it’s worth pointing out that the final few weeks of a legislative session are not that much different from March Madness.

    The key difference is that, while the men’s and women’s NCAA tournaments end with a single winner, a legislative session can have many shining moments.
