  • Class president: Seniors, prepare for last year

    Editor:

    This letter is addressed to members of the Class of 2010 and their parents.

    This is the first of our many updates throughout the year. I want to take this time and welcome you to the Senior Life.

    School will be starting back soon, and life will get back to the routine. Enjoy summer while its still here.

    As we are gathering back, here are a few things you, as a senior, should take into consideration.

  • 4 teens injured in crash

    The Trimble Banner

    Four teen-agers were injured in a one-car accident at 9:59 p.m. Monday, Aug. 3, on U.S. 421 South.

    Trooper Seth Willis, public information officer for Kentucky State Police Post 5 in Campbellsburg, said the driver of the car, Sara Cooley, 17, overcorrected when the car left the right side of the roadway.

    He said the car veered left of center and Cooley again overcorrected. The car overturned, struck a portion of a concrete bridge  and flipped, hitting a telephone pole and landing on the passenger side.

  • Trimble, Carroll, Owen 8-year-olds square up

    TB Correspondent

    The championship for the 8-year-old machine-pitch baseball All-Star Tournament came down to the wire on Aug. 8.

    The tournament, hosted by Trimble County, included three teams playing five games. All three teams played each other and were seeded according to the final scores of each game.

    The team that gave up the fewest runs in their two games was No. 1 seed; second fewest No. 2 and third fewest, No. 3.

  • Impact of bridge replacement plan must be considered

    I was disappointed to learn that the Kentucky and Indiana transportation officials would be moving forward with a plan to replace the Milton-Madison, Ind. bridge on its existing piers.

    The two states are pursuing a plan to seek grant funding for the project from federal stimulus money, meaning work could be under way next summer, if the grant is approved. Yes, this would be a much faster approach than building a new bridge — with the project set for completion by 2012.

  • Carroll golfers split outings

    A large but very young boys golf team has taken to the links and split the matches so far this year.

    On Tuesday August 11 Henry Co took the first match of the year for the boys team by a team score of 177-197.

    Henry County Rebel Glenn Raisor defeated Panther Travis Ellis 43-47,

    Rebel Garrett Black defeated Panther Will Yager 44-48,  Rebel Nathan Paris defeated Panther Jacob Meadows 45-49, Rebel Michael Wilson defeated Panthers Dakota Bickers and Nick Abbott 45-53-53.

  • Chamber awards honors, celebrates local talent during awards banquet

    The annual Carroll County Chamber of Commerce banquet was full of glitz and glamour and local talent as singers and dancers took the stage for more than $1,000 in prizes.

    The banquet held Thursday, Aug. 13, at General Butler State Park is part fundraiser, part entertainment and part honors and awards as the Chamber of Commerce earns money to pay for local scholarships.

  • Property owners face tax increases

    Though no one from the general public attended, three public hearings were held last week that will raise taxes on real property and personal tangible property in the Carroll County area.

    The city of Carrollton, the Carroll County Public Library, and the Carroll County Board of Education each had hearings requesting the increases.

  • Grant funds could put bridge replacement on the fast track

    Building a new superstructure on the old piers of the Milton-Madison Bridge is considered the best option for the U.S. 421 bridge spanning the Ohio River, project officials say.

    It could be completed and open to traffic as early as February 2012, if a federal grant application being filed by transportation officials from Kentucky and Indiana is approved.

  • Fiscal court purchases warehouse behind jail

    Carroll County Fiscal Court voted during its Aug. 11 meeting to authorize Carroll County Judge-Executive Harold “Shorty” Tomlinson to pursue the purchase of a piece of property on the corner of Eighth and Polk Streets.

    The property is the former Woods Reynolds Warehouse, located directly behind and adjoining the Carroll County Regional Detention Center property. The purchase price is $60,000, according Tomlinson.

    The purchase, Tomlinson said, is “contingent on the completion of a good environmental study and a clear title.”

  • Bevill wins Henry golf outing

    Lyndsey Bevill dominated the field over the weekend at the Henry County Country Club Championships.

    Bevill, a high school regional champion for Carroll County a few years back, held a six-stroke lead after the first day on Saturday, then stretched it to nine on Sunday for a 10-over-par 154. Paula McGlothin finished second at 163 and Samantha Woods was third at 166. Carolyn Adcock, who has won the club championship eight times dating back to 1999, finished tied for fifth at 170.
