    Foods containing antioxidants can boost a person’s immunity and go a long way in preventing disease.

    Antioxidants are vitamins, minerals and other compounds in food that protect cells in the body from damage by compounds called free radicals. Free radicals occur naturally when the body breaks down food or when it is exposed to tobacco smoke or radiation. Free radicals may play a role in heart disease, cancer, and other diseases.

    A skeleton was found Sunday afternoon fastened in tree roots on the river bank in Spring Creek bottom.

    Forrest Burkhardt was walking along the Ohio River about a quarter ‘till 5, when he noticed the human skeleton ensnarled in tree roots left exposed by the undercutting of the water. Obviously it is surmised that the skeleton was washed in and lodged amid the roots.


    Trimble’s net teams are hoping for an exciting tennis season this spring after what Coach Vanita Fogle called “an adjusting and learning year” in 2010. The veteran coach returns as girls’ mentor and adds the responsibility of helming the boys’ tennis program.

    “The boys’ team had two to graduate last year with the rest of the boys being freshman,” Fogle said. “They will be bringing back a lot of good experience and ability they matured with from last year. I am looking forward to coaching the boys.”


    Trimble County Head Baseball Coach Frank Ragland is hoping to build on the accomplishments of last year’s “building season” after guiding a young Raider team to a 9-20 record. Trimble’s 2011 incarnation of the “boys of spring” features only three seniors but includes a wealth of talent from a group of players who earned valuable experience under fire a year ago.


    Look for Trimble County High School’s track program to ascend to a new level of achievement in 2011. Head Coach Jeff Vincent is very positive about both the girls’ and the boys’ track programs.

    “I’m pumped about this season,” he said in answering a preseason questionnaire. “Our goals include winning the NCKC, NCKTC, and Regional Championship and sending as many kids as possible to the state meet. Not only do we want to make it to state, we want to make noise there too. It should be a very fun season.”

  • Trimble suffers shivering loss

    The outdoor temperature was almost better suited for a hockey match-up than a baseball game when the Carroll County Panthers came to do battle with the Trimble County Raiders on the baseball diamond Thursday.

    Spectators who braved the cold either snuggled in blankets on the aluminum bleachers or huddled by their car heaters as the boys of spring held a frost fest.

    Catcher’s mitts, fielders’ and batters’ gloves were no protection for the lads as heavy, gray clouds cast a gloomy pall over the event.
