  • Our house has a type of staircase which is fairly typical in an older home. The stairs are very narrow and steep.

  • Our home resembles an airport terminal during the height of the holiday season. I don’t mean we have planes departing and arriving. Nor do I mean we have luggage carousels frustrating passengers once they realized they landed in Louisville and their luggage is somewhere in Houston. What I mean is we have several creatures, of assorted species, in perpetual motion.

    The Trimble County School Board voted last Wednesday to discontinue the varsity football program. Superintendent J.W. Sachleben said the decision was based on a lack of interest in football among the available male students and not enough numbers to play the game. During last year’s season, several of the players quit, a couple of the team’s best players were forced to the sidelines because of injuries and as a result the varsity roster dropped to only 12 players.
