It has changed very, very little since the 1920’s. Where the banker and the bum can stand side by side and cheer or jeer together.
Not one time did I hear someone gripe about the price of gas Friday night. No talk of Hilary, Obama, or Rudy.
It was all about football. Trigg County football. No steroid issues. No draft pick second guessing.

The Trigg coaching staff is doing more than teaching our kids how to block and tackle. They are teaching teamwork. They are teaching work ethics. I’m proud to know everyone on the field. The team that won Friday was just a little better on that night. They more than filled their side of the Perdue field to cheer their kids, and celebrate their community. We lost to a great team with really nice fans and I hope they go all the way.
