  • Med Ride volunteers appreciate award

    Editor:

    As one of the volunteers for Med Ride, I am writing on behalf of all of us to thank the members of the Carroll County Chamber of Commerce for selecting our group to receive the Community Impact Award at the annual banquet.

    What a wonderful surprise. We are very pleased.

    Hopefully others that may not have known about the opportunity to be a Med Ride volunteer will now decide to join our group as we are in need of many more people.

    Just call the Senior Center building at 732-7026 and ask for Joyce Long, the coordinator.

  • City paving plan includes four alleys

    Five streets, four alleys and a parking lot will be paved in Carrollton this year with the alleys receiving almost half of the $57,993 budget.

    City council approved the recommendation during its regular meeting Monday, Aug. 24 to spend $23,723 on four alleys with the remaining $34,270 allocated to five streets and a parking lot. Council gave approval without any questions or discussion.

    Ohio Valley Asphalt won the bid in the spring and will be doing all the work, according to Susie McGee, assistant city clerk.

  • Numbers increase at county schools

    Enrollment and attendance are up over past school years, according to a report given to the Carroll County Board of Education last week by Larry Curell, Chief Operating Officer and Director of Pupil Personnel for Carroll County schools.

    With 1,929 students enrolled in kindergarten through grade 12, Curell said there were 23 new students in the system as the school year began.

  • Panthers undefeated after Wildcat bout

    The Carroll County Panther football team roared its way out of Gallatin County after taking a  victory that leveled the stats between the two border rivals, 2-2.

    The football series has only been in existence four years and the Panthers were down 1-2, but with the 27-14 win over the Wildcats Friday night, the Panthers now take an undefeated record into their third week of play.

  • Libraries serve as the heart of communities

    Though almost nine months retired as director of the public library, I continue to be a citizen advocate for libraries throughout the state.  I recently received a copy of an article that appeared in “Planning Commission Journal”, Summer 2009. The cover story for this issue was entitled “Libraries, At the Heart of Our Communities” and the editor of this publication goes on for seven pages to extol  the importance of libraries to vibrant, healthy communities.

  • Soccer Panthers fall

    Soccer is gaining a following at Carroll County High School, but so far the Panthers have not been able to put a win in the books.

    Undefeated Bryan Station of Lexington came calling at Panther Field Saturday, August 29. Even though there was no win for the Panthers losing 0-5, they did manage to keep from having the game called by a 10-0 mercy rule as was the outcome last year.

    The Bryan Station Defenders took 10 minutes off the clock before scoring as the Panthers ran a close defense. Goalie Josh Pence had several saves as Bryan Station brought it to him.  

  • States not taking local impact of bridge project lightly

    Editor:

    In his column on Aug. 19, Jeff Moore, publisher of the Trimble Banner and the Carrollton News-Democrat, expressed disappointment in the idea of replacing the existing US 421 bridge between Milton, Ky., and Madison, Ind., by building a new bridge in the same location, using the existing piers. We refer to this as “superstructure replacement.”

    “It soweth here with toil and care, But the harvest-time of love is there.”

    Unusually wet weather and a cooler-than-normal July have made life interesting for owners of three local produce stands.

    “It’s been very, very trying,” said Jamie Pyles, owner of Bray Orchard and Roadside Market.

    The Trimble Banner erroneously reported in the Aug. 19 issue that the landfill would be closed one Saturday each month.
