  • Raiders earn home win over Henry's Wildcats

    Sweet revenge! Having lost two contests at New Castle earlier in the season Coach Stacey May’s Trimble County Raiders turned the tables on the visiting Henry County Wildcats last week. The Raiders had fallen in double overtime to the Wildcats on Dec. 28 during the Henry County Invitational Tournament 70-66, and suffered another defeat at Henry on Jan. 19, 74-60. On Tuesday, Feb. 13, the Raiders came ready to play, charged ahead early and battled to a 51-44 victory.

  • 4 minute offense by Lady Wildcats keep Lady Raiders from victory

    Recovering from a slow start in the first half after which they trailed by nine points, the Trimble County Lady Raiders battled back to put themselves within four minutes of capturing a win over the visiting Henry County Lady Wildcats on Tuesday, Feb. 13. However, Henry County made the most of those final four minutes to claim a 36-29 win over Trimble.

    Sophomore Abby Ponder scored all eight of Trimble’s points in the first half as Henry jumped out to a 9-6 advantage after the first eight minutes of play and extended the lead to 17-8 at halftime.

  • How to talk about tragic events with children

    Recent news events in Las Vegas, California, Puerto Rico, Texas and now Florida, discuss acts of violence and natural disasters leaving many of us in a state of shock and awe. As hard as it is for adults to make sense of these unfathomable acts, it is even harder for children. Talking to your children about natural disasters, violence and death is not easy, but can go a long way in making them feel safe, secure and loved.

    Ways you can help your child will be different based on your child’s age, knowledge of the situation and their unique personality.

  • Beautiful but deadly

    By CRYSTAL CAUDILLO

    It’s been my experience that some of the most beautiful things in the world have a dark side – a very, very dark side. One of the most strikingly colored snakes is highly venomous. The Coral Snake is banded with yellow, red and black stripes. Unfortunately, to be bitten by one of these pretties would prove to be an extremely disappointing way to get close to nature.

  • Waugh ready to move forward in life

    Jaclynn Waugh came to Jefferson Community and Technical College’s Trimble County Adult Education to get her GED. Although Waugh expected the process to take a while, she accomplished it in a short amount of time and with very little assistance. Walking through the doors of Adult Ed was the “start of a new life to success,” Waugh said. Getting her GED feels like a weight has been lifted and Waugh said she could now move on with her life. She wanted everyone who is thinking about getting a GED to know about her experience with the Adult Education program.
