  • Note to team - leave the popcorn to the fans in the stands

    Trimble County students were out of classes this week because of fall break. But while everyone, including the high school’s football team, was enjoying the break, the fun had to end sometime.

    Little did everyone know it would come to a screeching halt just before 8 p.m. Friday night.

    That was when the Raiders hosted the fourth-ranked Frankfort Panthers in a district match that ended with a crushing 6-56 loss for the home team.

  • Where is aid for people who lost food to storm?

    Editor:

    Why is it, when the electric was out long enough to ruin food in everyone’s refrigerator, that only welfare recipients get their food replaced?

    What about the families who live week to week that have children to feed? What about the senior citizens who buy their groceries once a month? The food is spoiled, and now they have no way to replace it until next month.

    I know of one welfare mother that gets $800 a month in food stamps, yes I said $800 a month, and is getting another $800 to replace the food she lost.

  • Volunteers made meals possible

    Editor:

    I want to thank Kenneth Kemble, Jacob Kemble, Tonya Edens, Mabel Parrish and Wesley Richmond for donating their time helping me at the Seventh Annual Repair Affair.

    Without their help it would have been impossible to feed the 130-plus volunteers who spent Saturday building and repairing homes for the elderly and disabled in Trimble County.

    It was another great year for us.
