  • Lady Raiders travel to Daytona for Sunshine Classic

    The Trimble County Lady Raiders were hoping to get back into a winning frame of mind when they hosted Ludlow last night. Picking up a win would be a great change of pace after an extremely humbling weekend in Florida where the girls faced three overwhelming opponents in the 29th Annual Daytona Beach Sunshine Classic.

    The Classic is a high school basketball tournament that takes place annually and is sponsored by Sport Travel and Management. The event is hosted each year by Atlantic High School in Daytona Beach, Fla.

  • 2020 Census is fast approaching

    It may seem odd to talk about 2020 with 2019 just now getting underway, but given the importance of next year’s U.S. Census, it is not too soon to begin raising public awareness about something that will have a direct impact on us all for the next decade.

  • What does your dash mean?

    When you walk through a graveyard you will notice several things. First, you will notice people. People visiting deceased love ones and remainders of those they are visiting. Second, you will notice tears, sad faces and even a facial shadow of a fond memory. You might notice many other things, but the one thing that visibly states it is a graveyard are the tombstones.
