  • Trimble’s Ruth Staples is 8th Region Coach of the Year

    The Kentucky Volleyball Coaches Association recently honored Trimble County Lady Raiders Coach Ruth Staples as the Eighth Region Coach of the Year.

    Staples and the coaches of the year from the other 15 regions around the state were recognized by Butch Cope, KHSAA Volleyball Commissioner, and the KVCA Coaches Association President, during the 2012 KHSAA State Tournament at Valley High School in Louisville, in ceremonies directly preceding the State Championship match last month.

  • Thanksgiving at the state level

    This week, as we turn our focus to family, food and – for some – football, now is the ideal time to pause for a moment to recall all for which we are thankful.

    At the state level, the good news is that some silver linings have begun to shine through after several especially tough years.

    The 12 months between Sept. 2011 and 2012, for example, saw Kentucky add 47,000 jobs -- our highest year-to-year total since 2000. Only South Dakota had a larger percentage increase during the same 12-month period.

  • Give thanks with a grateful heart

    An open letter to God, a psalm of thanksgiving:

    My Father who art in heaven

    Truly, hallowed and holy is your name.

    As I begin to write my yearly psalm of thanksgiving, this my 12th or 13th year, I’m wrestling with where to start, what to say, how to even approach you.

    Not that I’m not thankful, because I am. But I don’t want this to be rote and same -- or worse, clever for cleverness sake. After 12 or 13 years, I struggle to be fresh. I struggle to be present, to not just phone it in.

  • LOOKING BACK

    30 Years Ago (Nov. 25, 1982)
    The Trimble County school system was among four such systems in Kentucky to be given more time to balance their budget by the Kentucky State Board of Education last Thursday. In October the local school board submitted their plan to the State for eliminating the $78,769 deficit that had developed in last year’s budget. School systems are required by state law to balance their budgets.
