  • To the editor,

    What ever happened to enjoying a small town parade and letting the kids have fun outside while you catch up with friends? In a time when everything seems so hectic, kids are glued to the computer and the price of gas is limiting our ability to have fun, it’s time to take a step back and enjoy ourselves and this great community.

    We have the perfect opportunity for that. The Trimble County High School Raider football team is hosting their annual Midnight Madness Saturday, August 23.

  • Time to make sure teens know drinking isn’t OK

    Editor:

    It is summertime, and your teens may have more free time on their hands. Most of our teens are making healthy choices this summer – like not drinking alcohol.

    Unfortunately, there are many who do choose to drink. Most young people who start drinking before age 21 do so when they are about 13-14 years old. That is why parents and all adults should send a strong message that underage drinking is not OK.
