    The 2009 Trimble County Relay for Life is complete and was a huge success.

    Editor:

    Recently, I was crowned your 2009 Miss Carroll County Fair and I cannot express my gratitude enough towards the local support that I have received. I would like to thank all of the individuals that have sent warm wishes my way. I would also like to thank pageant director Jill Sachleban and the entire fair board for their hard work and dedication every night of the fair and the events leading up to it. Thank you to all the local sponsors for making our fair a success. This year was great!

  • Soccer program should receive funds

    Editor:

    I have a son who will be going into the fifth grade  at Cartmell Elementary next year. He currently enjoys playing for the school basketball, and for parks and rec. soccer and he also ran for the middle school track team. Although he has also played baseball in the past and enjoyed that as well. He has always been an excellent student. This was the first year for grades and he made honor roll all year. I am a very supportive parent who believes school and education comes first and sports later. My son has always been able to handle both.

  • You won’t believe what sunspots can do to a planet ...

    My plans for the future, it seems, are all for naught.

    I received in the mail a letter that says, basically, that the world will end in 2012. Of course, there is no return address or signature to identify the writer/sender. All I know is it was mailed from Louisville 40231.

    But shoot. I had a lot of big plans for 2012.

  • Fire department appreciates support

    Editor:

    The Worthville Volunteer Fire Department would like to express our thanks to everyone who helped make this years Turkey Dinner on May 16 a great success.

    We had a wonderfully enjoyable time and we hope that all those that joined us can say the same. More than 500 members of our community came out to show their support and enjoy the day with our volunteers and their families.

    Also, a very special thank you to our local businesses for their support and donations. Without which it would have been very difficult to accomplish.

  • River Sweep cleanup helps beautify a key community resource

    While the Ohio River is such an important part of life in Carroll County, we often take it for granted.

    The river is the reason we have many of the industries in our community that provide jobs for local residents and for those throughout the region. It is also one of the reasons that the county attracts so many tourists to the area each year.

    On Saturday morning, the Ohio River will be the focus of a large group of volunteers who will hit the riverbanks to rid it of debris and garbage that collects through the year as the river levels rise and decline.

  • Appreciation expressed for care after accident

    Editor:

    On May 14, my wife and I got the phone call no parent wants to get. Our daughter called screaming, “Help Me Mommy.”

    She was calling from inside her SUV that she had lost control of and overturned. We immediately called 911 and a state trooper was there within a minute of our call. Emily was taken to Carroll County Memorial Hospital where we were told that she had a broken back. She was transferred to Kosair Children’s Hospital. She had surgery to repair her back, but will need extensive rehab for the next couple of months.

  • Reflections on graduation, OR: Could it really be almost 30 since the Class of 1980?

    School’s out and the Trimble County High School Class of 2009 officially became alumni on Saturday.

    It really was a lovely day, and with the mild weather, very comfortable in that very crowded gymnasium.

    While I was driving to the high school Saturday morning, I thought back to when I graduated ... all those years ago. Could it really be almost 30 years since I received my diploma?
