  • The value of each vote on the Nickel Tax assessed

    Dear Readers,
    I continue to be encouraged by those in the community who have begun to seek more information on the Nickel Tax. I have enjoyed talking to you and greatly appreciate you commitment to be an informed voter. As you now know test scores have been released and on that same day they were released the battle cry of some who oppose the tax went up--“If our schools scored so high then we don’t need a new school.” This reasoning is ludicrous and definitely uninformed to the issues facing Trimble County Public Schools.

  • More Trimble volunteers sought for NCRC exam

    Special to The Trimble Banner
    Recently, Trimble County Magistrate Kenny Green and Milton Mayor Denny Jackson took leadership roles in our community and rose to the challenge of taking the NCRC exam. Both of them gave up their time and came into the Trimble Adult Education Center to take a series of tests (Reading, Math, and Locating Information) that will prove to employers looking to locate in Trimble County that we have a population that possessed the skills to handle most areas of employment.

  • Boo, old fool

    Many Baby Boomers are having the “discussion”:  How are we going to take care of each other in our “golden years,” “active years,” “evening of life years”—any euphemism you can use is fine; it all means the same thing. We are getting OLD.

  • Why are Christians so mean?

    I don’t know why I was so surprised, but I was.
    A few weeks ago, my pastor spoke on a controversial topic, racism, and did an absolutely amazing job, balancing truth and grace.
    That’s not what surprised me.
    What surprised me was learning that he was attacked for it, the target of mean-spirited vitriol, face to face encounters and emails.
    People love grace, but truth? Not so much.
