    The Trimble County Raiders suffered a disappointing 64-29 night loss Friday against Oldham County but rebounded in fine style Monday night to upend South Oldham by a 65-53 score. Both were important 29th District seed games.
    Trimble had fallen to Owen County on the road earlier last week, 76-38. The Raiders were back in action last night at North Oldham, another District foe. Results of that game were not available at press time.

  • Put that hammer down

    In my spare time I work as a freelance writer for an online content company writing home improvement articles for several national businesses and also catalog copy for Sears’ and Kmart’s websites.

    Currently, I’m writing about Craftsman tools for Sears — swivel jaw hose and spark plug pliers, circular levels and No. 12 steel tap wrenches.

  • Give a gift made in Kentucky!

    With only about a week until Christmas, the opportunity to buy gifts is nearing a critical point for those who haven’t completed their shopping.
    If you’re among those still searching for ideas, one possible solution is to buy something produced locally.

    Special to The Trimble Banner
    Recently the Trimble County Archery Team attended two archery tournaments.
    The first tourney was the Bethlehem Invitational in Nelson County. Our shooters had a very successful meet, placing 4th out of 18 competing teams. Trimble’s top archer was Mark Mullins Jr., who shot a 266. It is important to note that no one on the team shot below a 210.
