  • Wired, but tired? Avoid the stress of being overloaded

    When Mary Ann came into my office that first time, she had a tired, harried look on her face and seemed nervous. She related that she had no time for herself between the duties of her part time job as a nurse, the responsibilities to her ailing mother and the duties of being a wife and mother of two pre-teen daughters. With the holidays approaching, she felt added stress and found it hard to calm down and get a good night’s sleep.

    Managers can be found almost everywhere; offices, restaurants, supermarkets, hospitals - the list goes on and on. In the stands at a football game on a Friday night, look very closely and through your squinted eyes you may see another type of manager. The three blue-clothed teens standing along the sidelines are managers of the football team. And that brief glimpse may be the only recognition they receive the entire night.

    Special to The Trimble Banner

    The Trimble County Raiders suffered a bruising defeat at their homecoming football game Friday at the hands of the Gallatin County Wildcats . The final score of the game was 32-12.

    Shortly before the game, Trimble County High’s homecoming court strode onto the field. The court was presented by class; senior Austin Collins was named this year’s Homecoming King and fellow senior Deanna Nava was crowned Homecoming Queen.

  • Glory to God — and me too?

    When I was a kid we used to listen to a record album of silly songs.

    One song went: “Glory, glory, hallelujah. Teacher hit me with a ruler. She bopped me on the bean with a rotten tangerine….”

    I can’t remember the rest. But even all these years later, whenever I hear the word “glory” that stupid song pops into my head. (And now it will pop into yours.)

    LG&E have moved in their sign and have a huge crane to lift it into position, giving it a prominent fixture of attraction to the plant.

  • Legislator reviews KSP report on state highway safety

    While no one can accurately predict where a traffic accident might take place, information gathered by the Kentucky State Police gives us a pretty good idea of when the odds are certainly more in our favor.

    Based on its latest annual report, which was released last week, one of the safest places to be on the highway in 2010 was in a vehicle driven at dawn on a Sunday in March by a woman in her late 60s or early 70s who was making her way between Owensboro and Henderson on the Audubon Parkway.
