  • 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?

  • 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.
