Today's Opinions

  • 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?

  • Emergency crews thanked for aiding man’s daughter

    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.

  • Thanks extended to local mail carriers

    Editor:

    Thank you mail carriers.

    Our Carroll County mail carriers and postal workers pulled together in a heroic effort to Stamp Out Hunger the weekend of May 9. They worked overtime to collect more than 1,200 items donated by generous households to feed needy families. Through this united effort, the shelves of the Ministerial Association Food Pantry in the basement of St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church are again full.

  • Banquet honors nurses from Carroll County

    Editor:

    On May 16, the Carroll County Memorial Hospital nursing banquet was held at the United Pentecostal Church of Carrollton fellowship hall.

    The annual banquet is held to celebrate National Nurse’s Week. This year’s event was celebrated with food, fun and fellowship.

    The Nursing Committee would like to say thanks to everyone that made this event possible by either donating money, supplies, their time, or assisting with fund raisers.

  • Blues legend who was in Carrollton dead at 80

    Editor:

    Koko Taylor, Queen of the Blues, died this week. She was 80 years old and performing right up to the end.

    In 1997, she was the headliner at our own “Blues to the Point” festival here in Carrollton. Late Saturday night, following her blazing performance, she told me that she would really like a ride to Louisville’s airport the next day as she did not like to ride the bus with the band.

  • Community made 2009 Project Prom successful

    Editor:

    On behalf of the staff, students and parents of Trimble County High School, I would like to thank our wonderful community for its generous support of the 2009 Project Prom Lock In.

    This was the 11th year for Project Prom, an event created by concerned parents and citizens in our community to provide a safe and substance-free alternative for students on prom night.

  • Relay Bike Run raised $890; will be annual

    Editor:

    On behalf of myself and Crossroad Church, thanks to everyone who helped make our event, The Relay for Life Bike Run, a great success.

    Last year, we had 11 bikes and 14 riders; this year we had 36 bikes and 68 riders. After the ride, we held a cookout and served well over 160 people.

    Our grand total from this event was $890, which will go to the Trimble County Relay for Life.

    We had a lot of participation from within our community, and from Henry, Oldham and Shelby counties, and Madison, Ind.

  • Fee creates dilemma for a sick person

    Editor:

    Where do we go when it is after doctor’s hours, the office is closed and you are sick and need attention, but can’t go to the emergency room because the doctor says it is not an emergency?

    The sick person does not know if it is an emergency or not.

    I understand the new hospital ruling is to weed out those that go to the emergency room frequently but most go only when necessary. Most of us don’t carry $100, in cash, to hand out at a moment’s notice.
