  • The Carroll County baseball team would like to take this time to thank everyone involved with the program for their hand in helping bring a regional championship to our community. Many times we look at only the players who played the game as the ones who won the game for us. Let us not forget the ones who work hard in practice daily to push and make the other players better in many ways that also wear the uniform. They are crucial to the team’s success as well, and we recognize that.

    This is National Public Safety Telecommunications Week, which was established by Congress in 1991 to recognize the dedicated professionals who link the public to emergency services.

    April has again been recognized as Donate Life Month nationally and here in Kentucky. I feel that this a a good time to thank the many Carroll Countians who have supported organ and tissue donation at our drivers license counter by donating $1 in support of our Kentucky Circuit Court Clerks Trust for Life and by placing their name on the new Kentucky Organ Donor Registry.

    As a motorcycle rider, I have to be constantly on guard for road hazards that can cause me to lose control of my bike. Small things like loose gravel or animals darting across the road can be perilous for a biker.

    Another peril is being created by some property owners mowing the grass along the roadway. When the clippings are discharged into the road, it creates what we call “Green Ice” and can cause serious injury or death.

    Happy springtime! Thanks so very much to all the people who bought my CD, “Kentucky Rose.” It makes me so happy to hear that it has blessed your heart. The gospel is very powerful; it can change a person’s life, and give them peace and joy.

    The CD is now in the Trimble County Public Library in Bedford and the Carroll County Public Library in Carrollton. It’s titled, “Kentucky Rose – Pure Kentucky – Pure Gospel” and can be checked out for your enjoyment. I also give permission to copy.

    We are standing on the edge of insanity.

    We, the common people of this great nation, are all either in awakening sleep stage or brainwashed into believing that this nation represents all that resides within its borders. Hear the freedom alarm clock before you elapse into a brain-dead coma, never again to enjoy the rewards of what our founders envisioned for us all.

    Had enough yet? Whether you are happy or unhappy with what is going on in Washington, Kentucky, or Trimble County, you have an excellent opportunity to let your representatives know about it in person.

    Mark your calendars for Saturday, April 11, and plan to attend the annual Henry-Trimble-Carroll County Lincoln-Reagan Day Dinner from 5-9 p.m. at the Conference Center at General Butler State Resort Park, Carrollton.

  • If you haven’t seen the information outlining the possible new locations for the Milton-Madison bridge, you should. We had information in last week’s issue about on the topic, and we’re planning to go even more in-depth in issues to come..

    On the table are a flurry of possiblities that made my head spin the first time I started looking at them.

    I can’t say which one I prefer at the moment. Each one will cause many changes for the area, and many could mean changing the entire face of this section of Milton.

    It’s springtime – the universal time known for rebirth and renewal. We are already seeing the “trumpeters of spring” – hillsides graced with blooming dogwoods and Bradford pears; sunny jonquils and hyacinths have made their cheerful appearance, while the winds have blown circular blankets of blooms around tulip trees.

    These wonders also introduce our second most hectic seasons of daily living. It’s in our busiest

    times we risk missing unexpected blessings.

  • City Commissioner Todd Pollock said he believes an ordinance should be adopted banning exotic pets after recent news stories about the animals. What do you think? Post your comments on this stub.

    April is National Volunteer Month, and I want to thank all the volunteers who have donated their time and talents to our agency.

    We have had more than 90 volun-teers in the past year at our Trimble County Center who have given so much to assist those in need.

    The agency has been fortunate to have assisted so many elderly and low-income people in our community. Our wonderful and committed volunteers make this possible. Thank you for contributing to our mission.

    I am writing on behalf of the Carroll County Tobacco Festival Committee. We have had Turkey Shoots for over six years. Some have been successful and some we went in the hole. But, we enjoy doing it and meeting new people. 

    Everyone really has a good time and it’s a lot of fun. We would like to take the time to thank everyone that has attended our turkey shoots and supported the Carroll County Tobacco Festival.

    The Carroll County Health and Safety Fair on Saturday, March 28 at the Armory was deemed a success! We estimate up to 400 people took advantage of this opportunity to showcase their products and services; to network as a community; to get information to keep families healthy and safe; and to volunteer.

    I commend Mr. Zook in trying to do his job of cleaning up the unsightly junky places in our city. Thank you and keep up the good work for a neat, clean community.

    More than 30 students within our school system currently are on the tennis team, but these students do not have a court to practice on.

    They must travel by bus to Carroll County to actually practice on a tennis court. Thank goodness for the kind generosity of Carroll County.

    While I understand the old court was removed in order to provide better parking for the senior citizens, why wasn’t a new court constructed prior to this?

    Due to the ongoing personnel changes, the annual Worthville Fire Deparment April Turkey Supper will be moved to May 16, 2009.

    We hope all will come and continue to support the Worthville Fire Department, as we depend on your support in order to better serve the community.

    Without your support we could no longer function as a viable asset to our and the surrounding communities. We greatly appreciate your support as we go through the “Changing of the Guard” and of gaining new memberships.

    Because so many people in Carroll County have been concerned with the lack of positive role models for youth, as the Industry Training and Development Specialist of the Carroll County Area Technology Center I would like to share with you a unique event that fosters relationships between young people and caring adults.
