    Positivity and joy are very important aspects of life, especially with the negatives prevalent in today’s culture. From the ever-growing list of hardships that currently face adults to the little-known day-to-day worries of a high school student, keeping a smile on the face and one’s head held high are both luxuries difficult to attain. However, they are also important methods of therapy that can only be brought on by the influence of those who surround a person.

    Countywide, Trimble County voters elected in April 1943 by a majority of 274 votes to prohibit alcohol sales within the county’s borders. The subject was a heated topic in the days following the implementation of the National Prohibition Act, which became law in October 1919. The law was repealed in December 1933. Local Option elections were held three times during the decade following the repeal, with the county voting to be dry in 1933 and 1935, and voting wet in Dec. 1936 by a margin of 112 votes.

    I post entries on the Trimble County Historical Society’s Facebook page from John L. Wright’s journals he kept from 1909-1943. In the year 1915 at this time of year they were getting ready for “hog-killing.” He wrote that they had gone to get the gammon sticks and I was asked what those were. I know many of the old-timers will remember how this is done and it is a dying art—and farming IS an art.
