  • Fourth-grade Raiders win championship

    The Trimble County fourth-grade boys youth league team took the championship title in tournament play recently at Southwestern Elementary in Hanover, Ind.

    The boys beat Pope John, 31-12, in the opening game; Henry County in the semi-finals, 27-13; and St. Mary’s in the championship game, 30-22.

    In that final game, the young Raiders were out to avenge a loss to St. Marys from the first game of the season. St. Mary’s came out with some sharp shooting and jumped out to an early 12-4 lead.

  • Raiders enjoy big wins on hoops court

    The Trimble Banner

    It hasn’t been a banner year for the Trimble County Raiders varsity basketball team, but it has been exciting – particularly last week.

    On Saturday, the Raiders handed a 49-40 loss to the Williamstown Bearcats at this year’s Homecoming game – revenge for an earlier match up in which Williamstown took a 66-58 victory.

    That followed on the heels of a breath-taking win Tuesday, Feb. 1, against the Raiders’ arch rival, the Carroll County Panthers – also a home game.

  • Cell phone woes: From drowning one to losing another

    OK. It’s true. I’m not really all that enamored by cell phones.
    These “smart” phones have more features than I even know how to use, and personally, I don’t care to know. I just want to use them to make calls, store phone numbers and – yeah – play Ms. Pac Man.
