  • Plan and develop a budget for wise holiday spending

    With the holiday season upon us, it’s important to remember to reduce holiday stress and the after-holiday bills by developing a budget for gift giving, food and entertainment expenses.      

  • USDA’s Beginning Farmer Rancher Program next month

    The Louisville area extension services will be offering the USDA Beginning Farmer Rancher Program starting in January of 2012.  This program will be open to individuals who currently farm 20 acres or more, and who have been farming on their own for less than 10 years.   The program is meant to be a very in depth farm management program, so some basic farming knowledge is required.   The schedule of classes has been planned to hopefully minimize classes during busy times of the year.

  • Rebels riddle Raiders, 43-20

    A game plan of deliberate slowed-down offense was well executed in the early stages of Trimble County’s outing with regional power Owen County on Dec. 6, but Trimble’s inability to generate points on the scoreboard proved to be the Raiders’ downfall. Owen eventually pulled away in the second half to score a 43-20 win.

  • Lady Raiders’ 4th quarter overwhelms Williamstown

    A strong second half capped by a 31-point fourth quarter enabled the Trimble County Lady Raiders to throttle the visiting Williamstown Lady Demons by a score of 74-46 on Friday.

    Williamstown led briefly, 4-2, in the early moments of the game. Trimble’s tenacious defense enabled eight steals from Williamstown’s offensive effort in the first half alone.

  • Raiders eclipse Shawe’s Hilltoppers in see-saw battle

    Clutch free throw shooting down the stretch gave Trimble County a 50-44 win over Shawe’s Hilltoppers in a game which was much tighter than the final score would indicate.

    “It was a great game back and forth,” Trimble Coach John Leep III said following the exciting game. “Both teams are really similar—heavily guard oriented. It was a fun game to coach in. The players really enjoyed getting to play against a border rival.”

  • Lady Raiders celebrate ‘big win’ over Shelby County

    Trimble County’s Lady Raiders jumped out to an early 10-4 lead early in Monday’s game with Shelby County and never looked back on their way to a 52-44 defeat of the Lady Rockets in what Trimble Coach Kerrie Stewart called “a big win for us.”

    While holding a 35-24 advantage late in the third quarter the Lady Raiders weathered a storm over the next six minutes of play at Shelby pulled within one, at 42-41, with 3:54 remaining in the game.

  • Flunking sainthood

    This week I turned 57.

    I thought by this age I’d get the hang of the whole sainthood thing. The Protestant definition of a saint is simply a follower of Jesus.

    However, that doesn’t seem enough. There should be more to it than that. For instance, by now I should have at least the beginning buds of a halo or be able to say no to temptation eight out of 10 times — or two out of 10!

    But the truth is, I still struggle.
