  • Rebels riddle Raiders, 43-20

    A game plan of deliberate slowed-down offense was well executed in the early stages of Trimble County’s outing with regional power Owen County on Dec. 6, but Trimble’s inability to generate points on the scoreboard proved to be the Raiders’ downfall. Owen eventually pulled away in the second half to score a 43-20 win.

  • Lady Raiders’ 4th quarter overwhelms Williamstown

    A strong second half capped by a 31-point fourth quarter enabled the Trimble County Lady Raiders to throttle the visiting Williamstown Lady Demons by a score of 74-46 on Friday.

    Williamstown led briefly, 4-2, in the early moments of the game. Trimble’s tenacious defense enabled eight steals from Williamstown’s offensive effort in the first half alone.

  • Raiders eclipse Shawe’s Hilltoppers in see-saw battle

    Clutch free throw shooting down the stretch gave Trimble County a 50-44 win over Shawe’s Hilltoppers in a game which was much tighter than the final score would indicate.

    “It was a great game back and forth,” Trimble Coach John Leep III said following the exciting game. “Both teams are really similar—heavily guard oriented. It was a fun game to coach in. The players really enjoyed getting to play against a border rival.”

  • Lady Raiders celebrate ‘big win’ over Shelby County

    Trimble County’s Lady Raiders jumped out to an early 10-4 lead early in Monday’s game with Shelby County and never looked back on their way to a 52-44 defeat of the Lady Rockets in what Trimble Coach Kerrie Stewart called “a big win for us.”

    While holding a 35-24 advantage late in the third quarter the Lady Raiders weathered a storm over the next six minutes of play at Shelby pulled within one, at 42-41, with 3:54 remaining in the game.

  • Flunking sainthood

    This week I turned 57.

    I thought by this age I’d get the hang of the whole sainthood thing. The Protestant definition of a saint is simply a follower of Jesus.

    However, that doesn’t seem enough. There should be more to it than that. For instance, by now I should have at least the beginning buds of a halo or be able to say no to temptation eight out of 10 times — or two out of 10!

    But the truth is, I still struggle.

  • DO YOU REMEMBER?
  • Governors serve as guideposts to state’s rich history

    This week, Steve Beshear is being formally sworn into his second term as governor, kicking off what is Kentucky’s 59th inauguration.

    While the governor is often the most well-known official in the state – like presidents, their tenures serve as guideposts to our history – the truth is that few of our past leaders are well known beyond the counties named in their honor.

    This week is a good time to learn a little more.

  • Historical Society presents gifts in Christmas event at library

    The members of the Trimble County Historical Society held their annual Christmas Dinner Saturday, Dec. 10, at the Trimble County Public Library.

    After a delicious meal, U.S. Army Col. Glenn Fisher (ret.), Historical Board Chairman, on behalf of the Masonic Lodge F. &A.M.#158, presented Lisa Wegner, Library Director, with a copy of a cookbook compiled by four of the churches in the county.
