  • 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.

    Regatta revelers on the Milton, Ky., side of the Ohio River were well-behaved, according to Trimble County Sheriff Tim Coons.

    Coons credits the quiet weekend to a smaller crowd than usual on the Milton side, and to the rainy, chilly weather on Saturday, July 4.

  • Staff changes may not be ‘news’ but worth mentioning

    Since March, readers may have noticed a shuffle in staffing at the The News-Democrat and The Trimble Banner.

    Changes came about when Trimble Banner managing editor Lorrie Kinkade stepped down to pursue new ventures earlier this year. For a while, Brent Shanding, Landmark Community Newspapers Inc.’s roving editor, filled in at the Beford office. In April, News-Democrat editor Phyllis McLaughlin stepped in and took over the editor’s job there. Additionally, she has continued to manage the special sections produced by the two newspapers each month.
