  • Happy Mother’s Day!

    Last month my youngest daughter asked if I would write a letter of recommendation for her.

    She had applied for a scholarship geared toward young women on their own who are working on making a better life for themselves. My daughter has been putting herself through school for about six years now.

    When she asked, she had me at “Hi Mom. I need a favor.”

    Unfortunately, according to the letter guidelines, as her mom I’m not eligible to write a letter of recommendation.

    Moms don’t count.

  • LOOKING BACK

     30 Years Ago (April 30, 1981)
    Trimble County Schools held their classified personnel dinner Friday night with awards going to bus drivers, custodians, cooks and other personnel who keeps the schools safe and clean for students.

    Guy McClure provided in his will that a chapel be prepared at the Trimble County Nursing Home. A dedication service will be held May 10 and opened to everyone.

    Jamie Hargrove will address graduates of Trimble County High and Milton High schools May 9.

  • Alcohol-related fatalities decline

    One of the country’s great success stories over the last several decades has been its ability to reduce the devastation caused by drunken driving.

    The number of alcohol-related fatalities has dropped by about half since 1982, even though we are driving far more miles now.  That positive trend is even better for our younger drivers.

  • Alumni event short on attendance but enjoyable

    Saturday’s annual gathering of the alumni of Trimble County’s schools was somewhat disappointing for alumni banquet organizers.

    Don’t get me wrong. The meal prepared by the Trimble County school corporation’s cafeteria staff was nothing short of excellent. The fellowship of those in attendance was enthusiastic and cheerful. The Bedford Elementary School cafeteria facility provides an outstanding venue for revelers from school days past.

    What was missing? You!
