    The Trimble County Runnin’ Raiders have literally been on the run during the past several days competing in three meets around the area.

Trimble’s boys were also short-handed at the North Central Kentucky Conference meet at Carroll County last Wednesday but rebounded for a strong performance at North Oldham Saturday.

    30 Years Ago (Sept. 16, 1982)
    Trimble County Superintendent, Dr. Bill Stout hand carried a proposal to the State Board of Education in Frankfort, Tuesday. The proposal outlines the local board’s plans to eliminate the deficit in their 1981-1982 budget.

    The Milton Town Board met and it was announced that the Milton Fire Department had passed its inspection by the Insurance Services Office of Kentucky. The new rating will enable Milton residents within a five-mile radius by road to have their homeowners insurance premiums reduced.

  • DO YOU REMEMBER?
  • Is God invited to the party? Controversy raises questions

    Does God have a place in the platform of a political party? It depends upon whom you ask.

    On day two of the Democratic National Convention, three attempts were made to include God in the Democratic Party Platform. San Antonio Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa asked for delegates to ratify the proposal by voice vote and an awkward moment ensued when the first two votes deadlocked.  The third vote drew even louder opposition, yet the chair gaveled the proposed change into place, which drew loud boos. Who knew God would be so controversial at the convention?
