  • Date set for English school reunion

    Saturday, Oct. 3, 2009, marked a memorable date for the small community of English, Ky. —the first English Grade School reunion.

    Just to let you know what you missed if you did not attend the “Meet The Artist” program on Aug. 8 at Carroll County Public Library. It was a delightful display of Ireland and Irish countryside. A special display was done by Sam Burgess of “Forty Shades of Green.”

    Homemade Irish scones and Irish apricot jam, fruit, bagels with cheese spread and lime punch was served.

    The franchise agreement the city of Carrollton recently accepted with Rumpke Inc. not only reduced the monthly fee by $3, but also included the use of a 90-gallon roll-around trash container for citizens of Carrollton.

  • Writer takes stand for Trimble coach

    Editor:

    On a personal note, I have known Jeff Vincent for six years, because of his strong and prosperous team that he coaches. He not only supports and encourages kids on his own team, he also does the same for others such as me.  

    Even though I was a team of one, I felt a part of Trimble’s team because of the friendly atmosphere Jeff created. I’m an alumnus of Owen County’s  

    Cross country and track teams. Jeff has supported my running from the very beginning until this precise day.
