  • Trimble’s middle schoolers observe Red Ribbon Week

    Each year, Trimble County Middle School observes Red Ribbon Week with many other schools across the nation. Red Ribbon Week is an alcohol, tobacco and other drug and violence prevention awareness program observed annually in October in the United States.

    The Red Ribbon Campaign was started when drug traffickers in Mexico City murdered DEA agent Kiki Camarena in 1985. This began the tradition of displaying Red Ribbons as a symbol of intolerance towards the use of drugs. This red ribbon is a unified message of our commitment towards a drug free community.

  • Family feuds: It’s never over

    For those keeping an eye on the calendar, Election Day is almost here and the feuding is almost over.
    Except it won’t be over. It’s never over.

    Last week I attended a political forum, sponsored by the Chronicle. Held at the local college, the room overflowed with venom and vitriol and people who weren’t just pro-their candidate, but anti-the other person.

    Is it even possible to be pro-someone without being anti-the other person? Just asking.
