• Trimble CARES thanks community for Friday Night Lights support

    Dear Editor,

    Our first Friday Night Lights was here and was greeted with rain, thunder, lightning and a bit of despair that all the preparations were down the drain.

    Your mystery photo of Dec. 21, 2017 has come to my attention.
