  • Road plan, ‘pill mill’ measures pass in 5-day special session

    FRANKFORT - The headline this session-weary Friday is: Road Plan funding, ‘pill mill’ controls pass special session in minimum 5 days.

    Of course, a good newspaper editor would make it punchier and pithier and probably a whole lot snarkier; this has not been a popular special session in the public prints or airwaves, and few if any legislators themselves were happy about having it.

  • TCHS assistant coach is new golf pro at Perry Park

    A new face at Perry Park Golf Resort in Owen County will be familiar to many in Trimble and Carroll counties.

  • SPRING SPORTS: TRACK & FIELD

    Trimble County High School’s track and field athletes are again hard at work this spring, making the best of the same handicap that has plagued all previous Raider track teams before them—the lack of a track facility on which to practice or host competitions.

    Nevertheless, “we have had a great start to the season,” first year Head Coach David Apel said. Apel succeeds longtime track mentor Jeff Vincent who was dismissed by the Trimble school system in January.

  • Which way should I go?

    I am notorious for my lack of a sense of direction.

    Just the other day one of our photographers at the newspaper caught me going south when I should’ve been going north to an assignment.

    He laughed about it, as did I. But there have been many times I’ve given him wrong directions to an assignment and he hasn’t laughed.

    Even with a GPS and written directions I still get it wrong six out of 10 times.
