  • Writer takes stand for Trimble coach

    Editor:

    On a personal note, I have known Jeff Vincent for six years, because of his strong and prosperous team that he coaches. He not only supports and encourages kids on his own team, he also does the same for others such as me.  

    Even though I was a team of one, I felt a part of Trimble’s team because of the friendly atmosphere Jeff created. I’m an alumnus of Owen County’s  

    Cross country and track teams. Jeff has supported my running from the very beginning until this precise day.

  • Bunny’s death leaves woman heartbroken

    Editor:

    At the fair this year, you had a chance to pay to play to win a rabbit — a real, live bunny. I played June 11; it took me $5 from my boyfriend, a bucket of balls and luck to win, and I did. I ran over to the side of the fence where they were being kept.
