  • First Community Family Event set for Worthville June 23

    It is officially summertime, which means it seems that we are all running in different directions and time seems to be flying at a rate that is unreal in comparison to winter. 

    The sun comes out earlier and stays out later, however that rarely equates to the ability to get more done.  In summertime, we often get so busy that we can forget there are activities going on in our community that we can get involved in. 

  • Champions and winners
  • Ghent hosts July 12 farm field day; 4-H camp orientation set

    The day will begin at 6 p.m. and end with a twilight meal. Topics will be seeding techniques, restoring high traffic areas, warm season grasses, winter limit feeding of livestock, watering system options and dead animal composting.

  • Humphrey cited for Point Park vandalism

    A Carrollton resident was cited for vandalizing city property at Point Park.

    Carrollton Police Assistant Chief Steve Abbott was patrolling the area on June 6 when he observed Michael B. Humphrey, 20, writing on a picnic table with a paint pen, according to the police report. Humphrey also had 10 other paint pens in his possession and stated that this was the second time he had done this.

  • Coach makes ‘Leep’ to Trimble basketball post

    BEDFORD, Ky. – Trimble County High School basketball fans will see a familiar face in an unfamiliar role on the team bench when cage season dribbles in this fall.

    John Leep III has spent quite a bit of time pacing the floor and directing his teams on the sidelines of Trimble’s high school and middle gymnasiums. But always in the past, as coach of the middle school and junior varsity teams at Carroll County schools, Leep was plotting strategies to beat his then-archrivals – the Trimble County Raiders.

  • Broadband access increases in state

    For a growing number of Kentuckians, broadband Internet is given no more thought than any other utility. Like television and electricity, it’s just expected to be there.

    In fact, it can now be found in about 40 percent of the common-wealth’s homes. While that is certainly positive, it’s becoming increasingly clear that we need to see that number grow. According to a Federal Communications Commission report this month, most states have moved ahead of us when it comes to providing access to this fast-speed connection.

  • Projects hold the key for C’ton downtown’s future

    Talking with Mayor Gene McMurry on Monday, I couldn’t help but feel the enthusiasm he has for revitalizing downtown Carrollton. It is, indeed, infectious.

    In 2002, I joined The News-Democrat as editor. One of the reasons I accepted the job was because, when I came for the interview, I immediately fell in love with this small city on the Ohio River. (At that point, I’m not sure I knew there was still another river bordering the city.) To work in a place where one only had to look out the window to see this mighty waterway was a huge attraction for me.
