    David Marsh visited TCMS last week to inspire and encourage students to plan for their future. He discussed his accomplishments in middle school, high school and now college.
    “If you want something the first step is to create a plan of action,” Marsh strategically explained. “As early as seventh grade I had a mind-set, I wanted to play football in college. I knew it would take hard work and dedication.”

  • Lady Raiders rout Carroll Co., 60-36, in road game

    By TIM HENDRICK
    The Trimble Banner
    A game of extremes allowed Trimble County to race to a huge halftime lead as they defeated Carroll County 60-36.
    Carroll County head coach Paul Stone said the loss was on him.
    “I decided that we need to stop Trimble’s big two and played a triangle and two defense.” Stone said. “We let Bailey Duke have the outside shot and it did not work.”

  • Are attitudes changing toward abortion issue?

    By Rick Nelson
    Last week started out with many commemorating the work of Dr.  Martin Luther King Jr.  It ended Friday with people marching and assembling in cities (not hit by the wintery blast) to uphold human dignity of a different kind. While King was the face of the civil rights movement, it is unlikely the pro-life movement will ever have a single representative, but if they do, it will probably be the face of an anonymous woman who’s had an abortion.

  • Stepping towards grace

    Since my friend Mike has been sober, he’s taken me to one of his AA meetings every so often.
    I don’t struggle with alcohol, but I have my own compulsions and obsessions.
    It’s my opinion that every one of us is addicted to something and that those somethings can and do change, sometimes daily.

  • DO YOU REMEMBER?
  • Senate’s short week ‘significant’

    Although week three of the General Assembly was short due to the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday and the inclement weather Friday, the Kentucky Senate passed significant bills and welcomed visitors who braved the snow in Frankfort.
    On Tuesday we passed two of our priority bills: Senate Bill (SB) 4 and SB 10. SB 4 would require those seeking an abortion to have a face-to-face, in-person counseling session with a physician 24 hours prior to the procedure. This effort to promote the rights of the unborn passed with bipartisan support.

  • Several bills move forward despite short work week

    With the General Assembly off on Monday for the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday and on Friday because of the snow, last week was an especially short one for legislators.
    A reduced schedule didn’t keep the House from moving several bills forward, however.
    On Wednesday, for example, the chamber’s Judiciary Committee put its support behind House Bill 229, which would give the Attorney General’s office jurisdiction to pursue and prosecute human trafficking cases.
