    The Trimble County Fiscal Court exercised caution in a request to ban yard sales from the courthouse yard. Instead, the court opted to offer an alternate site and stressed in its proposal that the restriction would only last until June 1 of this year. The court also held the option open to non-profit organizations, such as the fire department or any churches who may wish to hold a fundraising event such as a flea market in the courthouse yard.

  • During the Depression Era the so called hobo had a series of symbols which only their fellows could decipher. For example, a particular symbol informed other hobos a meal could be obtained at the house indicated.
    I have been given an invisible mark that can only be seen by cats. I believe this mark can only be read by cats. The meaning of this mark informs any feline within a mile radius that the bearer of this mark is a sucker for those with nine lives.

  • Author’s Note-I have a series of stories titled “Standing in the Check Out Line” this is one of them.

  • Recently I spent time with some people who are homeless.
    I had met some of them while tagging along at the annual countywide housing count, which is another way to say homeless count.
    Every year, people who care go out and find the people who live in the woods or in their cars or sleep in abandoned buildings and get as much information about them as they can.
    People who care want to meet these people’s immediate and ongoing needs with tents and blankets and stoves, and also their long-term needs.

  • I suffer from a rare malady. It’s called Unintentional Clamor Syndrome. Basically, the more I try to be quiet, the louder I become. When my condition is active I will manage to tip over objects which have been in the same location for years. The ensuing crash is usually spectacular and deafening. Once I’ve created an unexpected noise it is guaranteed to cause the dogs to bark, the cats to flee, my mother-in law to drop a stitch in her knitting, and the neighbors to shake their heads in dismay.

  • My family and I were watching a Doomsday movie about a pair of rogue comets hitting the Earth causing an extinction level event. I really don’t know why I watch these kinds of movies because I am always disturbed afterwards and have trouble sleeping. I have insomnia so these worries about extinction level events do nothing to help me sleep; so I experience 4:30 a.m. This part of the morning is the time when my worries about all things dark and gloomy hold sway over my thoughts.

  • I have come to the realization that the amount of time, energy and stress invested in hair is simply not worth the effort. When I was younger I would agonize for hours over my hair. Using mousse, curling irons, blow dryers and more mousse I would fuss and fret, rewash, use more mousse and finally leave the bathroom with my hair looking pretty much the same. I’m not certain what look I was trying to achieve but I never seemed to meet that objective.
