    The Trimble County Raiders played their last football game of the season Friday night at Kentucky Country Day School in Louisville, resulting in a disappointing 53-0 loss for Trimble.

    We were eating pizza — thin crust perfectly crisp, topped with ooey gooey decadent cheesy goodness that was just the right degree of meltiness.

    As our eyes rolled back in our heads in pizza ecstasy, my friend Tara said she had recently read that the sign of a culture in decline is its glorification of its cuisine and deification of its chefs.

    Bobby Flay and Wolfgang Puck anyone?

  • State takes lead in science, technology

  • Two arrested after theft, pursuit in south Trimble

    The Trimble County Sheriff’s department arrested two men in connection with the alleged theft of a number of items from a residence on U.S. 42W in Pendleton Thursday.

    Sheriff Tim Coons said a 911 call was received from Warren Wheeler who, when driving past his residence at 5745 U.S. 42W, noticed a gate, which is normally closed and locked, standing wide open. Wheeler went to the residence of his brother, Lloyd Wheeler, to see if he had opened the gate. Lloyd had not and returned with Warren to the first location.
