Today's Opinions

  • League needs volunteers

    Hopefully, the recent weather has not dampened everyone’s spirit for the year to come. With each new year comes changes in many things, including youth leagues. New ideas and possibilities to make the leagues stronger and more productive for the youngsters are always top priority. With this said, the Trimble County Youth Baseball League, like the softball league, is pleading for more members to join the board and help improve our league.

  • Mail carriers did their best during ice storm

    Editor:

    First I would like to thank everyone who cleaned their steps, porches and in front of their mail boxes during the recent snow and ice; it was a tremendous help.

    Further, I would like to thank the employees who came to work every day – some of whom did not have electricity for several days at home, and yet made every effort to get the mail delivered.

  • County weathers the storm with an army of responders and volunteers

    Mother Nature’s worst was met with Trimble County’s best last week.

    As quickly as the winter storm covered roads with snow and ice, local volunteers and emergency personnel came to the rescue.

    Within hours of the first snowflake making landfall, thousands of the county’s residents found their homes dark and cold as thick coats of ice and falling tree limbs pulled power lines from poles.

  • Legion Auxiliary says thanks to holiday donors

    Editor:

    The Ladies Auxiliary would like to take this opportunity to thank every one for their help with our Toy’s For Tot’s Christmas Drive.

    A special thanks to our Carroll and surrounding county merchants for their generous donations for our raffles. Thank you Wednesday night Bingo Players for your support every week.

    To our Post Legionnaires and The Son’s of Legion, thank you for your donation. This made it possible to add a few to our list.

  • Offering vocal music, other fine arts in local schools a great idea

    At Thursday’s meeting of the Carroll County School Board, there was discussion of bringing more fine arts and humanities subjects back into the schools.

    Superintendent Lisa James said she wants to see choir offered at Kathryn Winn Primary School, as well as the other schools in the district. She says there are a lot of students in the district with vocal talent who would benefit.

    I couldn’t agree more.

  • Reader frustrated with local court system

    Editor:

    I am writing this letter as a tired, disgruntled, and extraordinarily frustrated citizen. As a 24-year-old man, I am proud to say that I have never been arrested or convicted of a crime. I have never spent one second in a jail cell. I have never had anything more than a speeding ticket.

  • Firefighter would like statewide fire museum

    Editor:

    As a charter member of the Hayes Crossing/Haldeman Volunteer Fire Department, I would like to make a suggestion that would involve all 120 County and City Fire Departments in the state of Kentucky.

    I feel like it’s time to establish a Kentucky Fire Department Museum. Contributions of Fire Department history could come from every Fire Department in Kentucky. Since we have several hundred Fire Departments in Kentucky.

    An old tobacco warehouse not being used would make a very suitable place to display trucks and equipment.

  • Brockman steps down as county’s Relay chair

    Editor:

    I’d like to take this opportunity to say thanks to everyone for your help in making our Relay For Life so successful.

    When the American Cancer Society asked me to be county chairman, I said I’d to it for two years. We’ve more than doubled that, and it’s time for me to get out of the way and let someone else take the lead.
