  • BY STEVE MIRACLE | Superintendent of Trimble County Schools

    Dear Readers,

    Trimble County Public Schools had the benefit to form a partnership with an organization called Saddleback East. This organization is a group of business owners in the region, some in Trimble County, who love to ride and race dirt bikes. Saddleback East, while made up mostly of people from outside the community, owns 700 acres of land in Trimble County where they ride and race regularly. Saddleback East initially sought the partnership we have formed out.

  • The portal to the cat dimension remains open. Once again the mysterious, exasperating force, in its questionable generosity, elected to present me with six brand new kittens.

    The troupe was deposited under our back porch. Can’t help but be delighted when I discover a cat to rescue from a life of misery. However, I have the decency to keep this to myself when I notice the despair etched onto my husband’s face. He knows the level of chaos that erupts upon the arrival of toddler cats. He knows that all he can do is hunker down.

  • Gardens are beginning to bear the fruits of your labor. Soon, it will be time to start thinking about preserving some of that excess produce for winter months. Safety is of utmost importance for those of us preserving food because improperly home canned food can lead to foodborne illness.

  • As it sometimes happens, something I wrote in a column prompted a reader to email me with her concerns.

    This reader was concerned about the way I talk about sin and that I often call myself a sinner.

    She wrote, “Don’t be so hard on yourself. You’re a lovely person and you shouldn’t always put yourself down. You’re a child of God and you should hold your head high.”

    FELONY

  • Life is made up of the many decisions we make. Everyday all of us constantly make decisions that dictate the places we go, the things we do, the words we speak and, ultimately, the person we become.

  • This past week I met with some members and the pastor of a local church that had been rocked by scandal recently.

    A church employee had stolen a lot of money from them, robbing them not only of their funds, but also of their trust.

    And as what often happens when a church faces a scandal, people pointed fingers and assigned blame.

    Why didn’t you know about this? How could you let this happen? You should’ve seen it coming.
