  • Saddleback East steps up for internship, volunteer opportunities

    BY STEVE MIRACLE | Superintendent of Trimble County Schools

    Dear Readers,

    Trimble County Public Schools had the benefit to form a partnership with an organization called Saddleback East. This organization is a group of business owners in the region, some in Trimble County, who love to ride and race dirt bikes. Saddleback East, while made up mostly of people from outside the community, owns 700 acres of land in Trimble County where they ride and race regularly. Saddleback East initially sought the partnership we have formed out.

  • Tiny Cat

    The portal to the cat dimension remains open. Once again the mysterious, exasperating force, in its questionable generosity, elected to present me with six brand new kittens.

    The troupe was deposited under our back porch. Can’t help but be delighted when I discover a cat to rescue from a life of misery. However, I have the decency to keep this to myself when I notice the despair etched onto my husband’s face. He knows the level of chaos that erupts upon the arrival of toddler cats.

Perry Arnold, representing the plaintiffs, said they were not satisfied that the judgment by Trimble Circuit Judge Dennis Fritz was fair. He said cases take as long as a year or year and a half to go before the appeals court.

  • State resources continue tackling drug epidemic

    One of the most difficult challenges fighting the war against illegal drug use is that when we begin making progress on one front, the battlefield invariably changes.

    We’ve seen that happen time and again over the past two decades. Those “fronts” have ranged from meth and synthetic drugs to heroin and abuse of prescription medicine.

    According to the annual report the state’s Office of Drug Control Policy released last week, another name, perhaps unfamiliar to many, is overtaking them all: fentanyl.

  • Not a worm, but a daughter

    As it sometimes happens, something I wrote in a column prompted a reader to email me with her concerns.

    This reader was concerned about the way I talk about sin and that I often call myself a sinner.

    She wrote, “Don’t be so hard on yourself. You’re a lovely person and you shouldn’t always put yourself down. You’re a child of God and you should hold your head high.”
