  • 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.

In her book The Business of Kindness, Olivia McIvor defines twelve kindness traits to demonstrate character building. These are as follows in three primary areas:

    •Kindness to oneself – authenticity, attitude, resilience, excellence

    •Kindness to one’s colleagues- trust, compassion, courage, friendship

  • Economic forecasts present challenges for lawmakers

    Over the last month or so, there have been some encouraging signs that state governments are inching away from the toughest economic crisis in decades.

    Combined, the states have trimmed a half-trillion dollars since 2007, but the days of cutting much more appear over, at least for now.  According to the National Conference of State Legislatures, new budgetary gaps “are practically non-existent.”
