  • Event helps build business for county

    Editor:

    On Sept. 17, the Carroll County Chamber of Commerce and Carroll County Community Development Corp. partnered in hosting its second annual Business Celebration Day.  

    The event was free to the public and showcased about 40 chamber members.   Food was served, inflatables were available for children, and a fashion show was hosted by both Carrollton Wal-Mart and VF Outlet. The theme this year was a Think Local, Buy Local Campaign, and all members received a Buy Local Window Cling to display in their businesses.  

  • TCHS band room needs repair

    Editor: The band room at Trimble County High School is a shambles. No matter how much the band director or the band members try to clean it, it still is in bad need of repair.  The tile and carpet have been down for too many years to even mention. The walls are in need of repainting. Band members even state that there are ants in the c

  • City only cares for those with money, influence

    Editor:

    This letter is to sound off about this little town called Carrollton. I have only been here a short time, but Carrollton has already taught me that if you don’t have a title, high status, or lots of money, then you are a nobody.

    No one around here has any respect for their neighbors. It just seems like you can do whatever you want to terrorize your fellow man.

  • Officers thanked for recovering motorcycle

    Editor:

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank Trimble County Sheriff Tim Coons and Kentucky State Police Trooper Trimble for the recovery and return of my motorcycle.

    Their quick response and diligence on this case was overwhelming.

    Thanks again.

  • Editor:

    On July 14 at 8 p.m., I received a phone call from a man, who I could hardly understand due to his accent. He asked for me by name and read to me information he had on my address and bank’s name.

    He told me he was sending me a new Medicare card and $50 in cash, and said he needed to deposit the money into my bank account.

    I asked where he was calling from, and he replied, “Washington, D.C.” I told him I already have a Medicare card, and he said, “Throw it away!”

  • Voter believes county needs new commonwealth’s attorney

    Editor:

    I am compelled to write to the citizens of Trimble County about a judicial official we elected to represent our community. We need a fresh person who understands what it means to be a “gatekeeper” of the law, and that he or she must practice the spirit of the law, not the letter of the law.

  • Nursing home visits appreciated

    Editor:

    Thanks to Jay Montgomery and his youth for visiting the nursing homes. That could be an example for all of us. There are many lonely people in our county.

       Lead on Jay.

  • Senior Event proved to be another great success

    Editor:

    The 2009 Carroll County Senior Event held Thursday evening was again a big success as senior citizens from Carroll and surrounding counties came to enjoy “Memories of the Family Farm.” We wish to thank the hard work of the planning committee, donations from the community and time given by all of the volunteers who helped build buildings, gather and set up the old farm equipment and other items, and set up the day of the event. Mike Humphrey and his team started building and preparing the grounds three days before the event -- a tremendous feat.
