  • Summer meal program averaged 90 meals daily

    Editor:

    Did you know that 850 million people in the world are undernourished, and of them 153 million are children under age 5? As many as 13 million children in the United States go to bed hungry, and 24 percent of all the children in Kentucky live in poverty. In Trimble County, 18.6 percent live in poverty.

    Volunteers from Trimble County fed an average of 90 children daily during the month of June. These children, who are sure to get lunch during the school year, are no less hungry when school lets out for the summer.

    NEW CASTLE, Ky. –Every Sunday, several carloads of visitors venture up the gravel drive leading to the Smith-Berry Winery tasting room.

    They come hoping to sample some of the New Castle winery’s products, but state law forces owner Chuck Smith to turn them – and the money they have to spend – away. Many leave frustrated, Smith said. “They’re mad, too; they’ve driven in off the interstate” specifically to visit the winery.

    The Trimble Banner

    Quietly, the Milton-Madison Bridge project is continuing as teams work to collect information that may help engineers determine the best of three possible sites for a new span across the Ohio River.

    Sonar exploration of the river bottom was conducted on Thursday, July 2. From a small silver-colored boat, hydrographer Pat Hahs of Mainstream Divers used side-scan sonar equipment to map out debris, archeological artifacts and anything else lying at the bottom of the river.

  • Villwock wins record 8th regatta

    Dave Villwock and the U-16 Miss Elam Plus racing team were absent during most of the 2008 unlimited hydroplane season after winning back-to-back Indiana Governor’s Cup titles in 2006 and 2007. The team returned to Madison this past weekend and took up where they left off by holding the unlimited fleet at bay, winning the Madison Regatta in convincing fashion.

  • DJ Carroll featured in national publication

    A local and young entrepreneur proved so impressive that the national publication Turf Magazine published a feature story on him last month.

    The multi-page magazine spread tells how DJ Carroll, a 2007 graduate of Carroll County High School, began his lawn care service in high school while playing football for the Panthers.

    Since graduation, he has since been all business about growing his business.

  • Regatta a big part of Taylor’s life

    The year was 1959: Ron Musson enjoyed his first career win in unlimited hydroplane racing by capturing the Indiana Governor’s Cup race in a boat named Hawaii Kai III.

    That race stands out vividly in my mind because it was the first unlimited race I ever saw. Standing on the riverbank at the foot of Madison’s Ferry Street I was overcome with excitement as the roar of the World War II-vintage fighter-plane engines rattled my bones and echoed through the hills and “hollers” of the Ohio River valley.

  • Meal ministry proves to be a blessing

    Editor:

    On June 27, we had our third End-of-the-Month Meal Ministry from noon to 1 p.m. at Carrollton Christian Church at 310 Fifth St., in Carrolton, Ky.

    The purpose of this ministry is to provide a home cooked meal to an individual or family that is not able to provide for themselves for whatever circumstance and free of charge. The response was wonderful. We did have 33 visitors to this meal and we were very excited to be able to feed them. The weather was wonderful, the fellowship was spectacular and the people that came and ate with us were blessings.
