  • Trimble ‘came ready to play’ in Carroll win

    The Lady Raiders continued their dominance over border rival, Carroll County, extending their win streak to five games continuing from last season. Consistent serving was the key to victory for the visitors. They missed four serves in the first game and only one in the second.

    “I think my girls came ready to play tonight,” Trimble head coach Ruth Staples said. “… I told them to be more mentally prepared serving, and it must have worked.”

  • Ladies open with win over Walton-Verona

    The Trimble County Lady Raiders impressed their coach and delighted the crowd in the friendly environs of Trimble County High School’s gymnasium Thursday. Trimble opened the 2011 volleyball season with straight set wins over Walton-Verona, 25-22 and 25-20.

    After losing by two in the third game of scrimmages against Carroll County’s Lady Panthers and TCHS alumni the Lady Raiders kept their composure in the late stages of each game against W-V when the Lady Bearcats made a run.

    Harold “Bubba” Dennis was disoriented and afraid after a pickup truck driving the wrong direction on Interstate 71 in Carroll County crashed into the bus in which he was traveling on a Saturday night 23 years ago.

    He knew there had been a crash, but he didn’t know right away the bus was on fire or the driver of the pickup truck was intoxicated.

  • Change is sometimes for the greater good

    Every so often my husband gets a certain look in his eye and then says, “Before you say no, hear me out.”

    What comes next almost always involves a stepladder, can of spackle, his drill and a huge mess.

    I remember the time he tore the spare bedroom apart and temporarily stored a bed in the front bathroom. For days I muttered, “There’s a bed in my bathroom!”

  • LOOKING BACK

    30 Years Ago (Aug. 20, 1981)

    Lions Club annual fish fry and picnic was a success.

    A group of South African burley growers were in Trimble County this week. They met with Conservation officers and local farmers as they toured the county studying new ways to grow their burley.

  • Kentucky an environmentally adept leader

    When it comes to being “green,” Kentucky is taking a leading role in proving that, environmentally speaking, less is really more.

    Our recycling rate, for example, has doubled over the last decade, and in 2008, we passed the national average for the first time. Now, nearly a third of our recyclable materials – such things as aluminum, plastic, glass and paper – are being re-used rather than shipped off to the landfill. Altogether, it amounts to about two million tons annually that are being saved.

  • What’s up with all the ‘W’s on the Milton-Madison Bridge?

    Recently I have heard some rumblings about a contest to name the new version of the Milton-Madison Bridge.

    We’ve always called the current Milton-Madison Bridge the “Milton-Madison Bridge.”

    That is, unless you are a died-in-the-wool Indiana resident who hates anything blue and white or anything associated with Kentucky and the proliferation of Wildcat memorabilia everywhere. THOSE people insist on calling it the “Madison-Milton Bridge.”
