  • Winter is coming: How to support a home bound friend

    People can become confined to their home for many reasons—sickness, recovery from surgery, chronic illness, disability and even weather.  With limited access to the outside, a person’s world can shrink considerably and create a disconnect from people and the community.  To help a homebound friend or relative stay engaged in life, you can:

    •Plan to call or visit when you are not rushed for time

    •Arrange a regular date to get together

    •Encourage the person to express emotions and to listen

  • Fresh fruit makes a great gift in any Christmas season

    We all have our favorite childhood memories of Christmas. It’s my favorite season of the year!

    Each Christmas, my mother and father would buy a bushel of apples and oranges. For lack of a better place to keep them, all of the fruit and Christmas candy was stored in their bedroom. Growing up on the farm, we did not have heat in the bedrooms. I can still remember opening the door and their entire bedroom was filled with the sweet fragrance of apples. I will never forget that feeling and the smells of that room as long as I live.

  • Panthers take heart-stopping win over Trimble, 64-63

    Trimble County’s Skiler Alexander toed the charity stripe with 19.4 seconds remaining in a frenzied game with border rival Carroll County—a contest where the momentum had swung back and forth like the pendulum on a grandfather clock. Alexander and his Raiders had watched a 14-point, 57-43 lead gradually disappear over the final five minutes of the game.

  • Trimble wears down short-handed Lady Panthers team

    The loss of Carroll County’s Top Gun early in the second quarter contributed to a dismal evening for the Lady Panthers en route to a 53-29 win for Trimble County at Bedford Friday.

    Carroll senior Hannah Devine suffered the injury while driving the free throw lane to the basket. Devine suddenly crumpled with a knee injury and left the game with about six-and-a-half minutes remaining in the first half. Devine attempted to return to the game with 4:10 remaining in the half but the pain was too severe to continue.

  • The ‘rest’ of the story

    In the past few years, my husband and I have made it a tradition to eat Christmas dinner at a nearby inn that serves a humungous buffet.

    Without fail, every time we go I bemoan the fact that my stomach can’t accommodate large quantities of food.

    I’ve seen people eat stacks of pancakes the size of Rhode Island and whole sides of beef and think that maybe I can do that too, but I can’t.
