  • Glyphosate-resistant weeds spreading in Kentucky

    Kentucky farmers have battled weeds resistant to herbicides containing glyphosate for the past decade. A recent survey of agriculture and natural resource agents with the University of Kentucky Cooperative Extension Service indicates these weeds are becoming more widespread.

    Marestail (also known as horseweed), Palmer amaranth and waterhemp are examples of weeds that are not being controlled with glyphosate. All three weeds can pose problems for soybean growers according to James Martin, UK Weed Science Specialist.

  • Trimble’s elementary teams enjoy success in league play

    Trimble County’s 5th grade boys have won their league tournament for the second year in a row. In the semifinal game the Raiders took on Switzerland County, a team that had taken Trimble into overtime only two weeks prior. Trimble adjusted their defense by putting David Duncan on the Pacers’ main scoring threat, which helped shut him down and kept the Raider big men out of foul trouble. Trimble led 30-13 at the half en route to an easy 41-24 final.

  • Henry spoils Raiders’ Senior Night

    The Trimble County Raiders closed out the home portion of the 2011-12 basketball regular season by honoring the team’s seven seniors on Valentine’s Day. One of the larger crowds to attend a home contest this season—including parents, family members, friends and fellow students—who were on hand to honor the seniors watched as the Raiders fought valiantly but unsuccessfully to erase a sizable deficit en route to a 65-51 loss at the hands of the visiting Henry County Wildcats.

  • ‘Three free sins’

    It’s not every day that I get “three free sins” in the mail, but today I did.

    Unfortunately, I used them up even before I got the envelope opened.

    I’m talking about Bible teacher, author and Christian radio personality Steve Brown’s new book, “Three Free Sins,” subtitled, “God’s Not Mad at You.”

    The title comes from Steve’s former call-in radio program where he gave callers three free sins - six if they called on a cell phone.

  • LOOKING BACK

    30 Years Ago (Feb. 25, 1982)

  • DO YOU REMEMBER?
  • Heroes live (& die) among us in the form of public servants

    Front page announcements in The Trimble Banner this week and last informed the community of the deaths of two public servants of years past—former sheriffs David Craig and Denny Long. Both performed the duties of the county’s highest law enforcement office admirably and professionally. Both were quality individuals, both while in public office and in private life.

    Ironically, the passing of these two gentlemen within 14 days of each other leaves us without a living former sheriff in Trimble County.
