  • Elementary Raider teams complete undefeated season

    Trimble’s fifth grade basketball team took on Switzerland County for a shot at going undefeated in the Van Wye league in Madison, IN. The Raiders were very lackadaisical at the game, seemed to have no energy and didn’t play like themselves in the game. They pressed in the first half, which helped account for 21 steals for the game but the Raiders also amassed 11 fouls for the half. Trimble went into halftime down 12-10.

  • Relieving health issues caused by stress

    Are you aware that stress is anything that interrupts balance in your body? The impact of this can be devastating. A person normally stores energy for the body’s ongoing daily functions.

    These reserves are mobilized in a crisis. This reaction to stress is called the Fight or Flight
    Response; it has a role to enable the body to have the ability to deal with a temporary life-and-death threat. In an emergency situation, different organ systems are activated and others are inhibited. 

  • Don’t be grudgin’ and judgin’

    There’s this woman. I’ve only met her in person two or three times, but she and I belong to the same professional organization of women authors and speakers, so I see her name continually. About 10 or so years ago she did something that I thought was reprehensible and I took great pleasure in knowing it’s one of God’s top 10 “thou shalt nots” and that she would one day reap what she had sown. That’s not just karma; that’s biblical - a double whammy.

  • LOOKING BACK

    30 Years Ago (Feb. 4, 1982)
     Annual rainfall for Jan. is 3.5 inches. Trimble County had had about 6.5 inches and Saturday another 2 inches of rainfall was added, sending creeks romping again. While rain was in this area, a 200-300 mile stretch about 50 miles wide had 12 inches of snow for St. Louis to Indianapolis. One-tenth inch of rain equals one inch of snow, thus we could have awaken to a snow-paralysis state on Sunday morning.

    Homecoming King and Queen Friday night were Junior Terry Howerton and Freshman Traci Brierly.
