  • Carroll County Cares

    The rains stopped mid-afternoon Friday just in time for the Carroll County Cares celebration on the courthouse lawn to raise awareness of child abuse in the community.

  • Carrollton is losing a treasure in Kysoc

    Editor: Who wants to lose a treasure once they’ve found one? That’s what happened this week through the abrupt announcement that Camp Kysoc will close. Carrollton loses a treasure in every sense of the word. Our family is devastated. Our community should be as well.  Our son, a long-time Kysocer, asked every

    Serving as magistrate of District 3 for the past three years and announcing my candidacy for re-election, I want each of you to know I am grateful for and humbled by the opportunity to serve in a county that I hold in such high regard.

  • TIM COONS -- INCUMBENT

    The Trimble Banner Each of the three challengers for Trimble County sheriff in the May 18 Primary Election have stressed the belief that residents need to know they can call on the sheriff or his deputies 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

That’s when I get calls from people letting me know that something we printed wasn’t quite right – or, sometimes, just plain wrong. I hate that. But, it happens, and I do my best to set the record s

  • Panthers give up two runs in the seventh, fall 4-3

    With two outs and a 3-2 lead in the top of the seventh inning, it looked like the Panthers had the game wrapped up against the visiting Simon Kenton squad. A ground ball was hit to junior third baseman Zach Wise for the seemingly third out of the game. However, the ball sailed on him, past the first baseman, allowing the tying run on base. A

  • Writer still waiting for paving in Milton

    Editor: I am happy for Mr. Dunn that he got his road paved. That is more than I can say for the northern part of Trimble County. There are two roads in Carmel Heights Subdivision that have been on the county road map since 1964 that have never been graded or graveled. So you can call that a good county official. I don’t think so. Of course, I don’t live south off th

  • CHIP PERRY -- CHALLENGER
