  • Trimble tumbles twice at home

    The Trimble County Raiders fell to defeat in a pair of home contests of high school basketball last week. The Raiders “wilted under the pressure” against an extremely scrappy Gallatin County Wildcats team on Tuesday, according to Trimble Coach John Leep III, falling by a 74-37 score. Trimble returned to action Thursday against Whitefield Academy, a game Leep predicted beforehand would be “a tough challenge.” Whitefield, like Gallatin, took an early advantage and never looked back en route to a 64-50 win.

  • Trimble’s seniors celebrate lopsided Henry Co. win

    Despite a ragged start Trimble County’s Lady Raiders put together a great defensive effort to overcome the visiting Henry County Lady Wildcats Monday in a 57-32 rout on Senior Night.

    “The effort tonight I thought defensively is what made the difference in the game,” Trimble Coach Kerrie Stewart said after the game. “We started out a little sluggish, a little slow. It was a different lineup than what we’re familiar with.”

  • Bipartisan support in prescription drugs effort

    When the General Assembly began the legislative session last month, there was already broad agreement on what the three biggest issues would be: Writing state government’s budget; realigning legislative and Kentucky Supreme Court districts; and limiting if not stopping prescription drug abuse.

  • Senate tackles travel, education measures; redistricting to courts

    Greetings from Frankfort! Anyone visiting the capitol this week would have enjoyed watching democracy in action, both on an individual level as well as a grander level. We passed legislation that made road travel safer for the Amish, we moved forward in education, and we found consensus on congressional redistricting even as legislative redistricting moved to the courts. It was a full week.

  • U.S.S. Hancock sailors proud of World War II battle scoreboard

    After striking Japanese home islands since July 10, 1945, and battering Tokyo Plains on the 17th and 18th of July, we were low on ammunition, fuel oil, gas and supplies. While underway and zigzagging at sea it took three days for the Third Fleet to receive over 6,000 tons of ammunition, about 400,000 barrels of fuel, 1,700 tons of provisions, 100 replacement aircraft and over 400 replacement officers and men. This was probably the largest transfer operation ever completed on the high seas.
