  • Sheriff appreciates support for annual Christmas event

    Editor:

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank the following individuals and companies for the wonderful support and help in making this year’s “Christmas with the Sheriff” such a success.

    Because of the amount of support and help we were able to help 79 children have a good Christmas this year. The support of money, time, help and food enabled us to have a great party for the children and the parents/guardians with Santa.

  • Dear Editor,

    On behalf of The Bedford Elementary School and PTA we would like to thank everyone for their support in helping to make the Fall Festival a success.

    Your generosity was so greatly appreciated!

  • To the editor,

    Is our court system fair to our citizens or do they intentionally protect the people that are thieves?

  • As a resident of Milton, I’d just like to throw my two cents in regarding the upcoming vote on whether to allow a winery to establish itself here in Trimble County.

    I know that Trimble has been a dry county forever. I’m not really sure why, but having witnessed myself how alcoholism can be harmful to a person and to a person’s family, I do understand how people feel about the sale and use (or, more accurately, abuse) of alcohol.

  • Editor:

    When I read the proposal brought before the County Fiscal Court about the recreational trail, it was disturbing to me.

    Personally I think the money could be put to better use. We are living in an economic crisis and as the winter progresses there are going to be lots of [people in] need in our county. With the federal and state government cutting back, I doubt if the county would get a grant for such an unnecessary project any way soon.

  • During the holidays, many of us may get wrapped up in all the festivities with family and friends that make the season special.  

    However, it is important not to forget the brave men and women who are unable to celebrate the holiday season at home with their loved ones.

    Nearly 370,000 American troops will be serving our country abroad during this holiday season. There are many ways you and your family can show your support for these troops and make sure they receive some holiday cheer from home.

  • To the editor,

    I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself. My name is Billie Jo Jones. I was hired in August 2001 as Trimble County Family Court Deputy Clerk by June Ginn, Trimble County Circuit Clerk of 19 years.

    In January 2007 June Ginn retired and Theresa Edwards was the newly elected Trimble County Circuit Clerk. After working only one day for the newly elected Circuit Clerk Theresa Edwards January 4, 2007 she made seven allegations against me.

  • From a technical standpoint, Kentucky’s judicial branch is the same age as its executive and legislative branches, all were officially formed when our Constitution was adopted in 1891.

    But, the judiciary as we know it is only little more than three decades old.  Voters created it in 1975 when they eliminated an often-confusing variety of courts and replaced them with the orderly system we have today.

  • Let’s see, the last time I checked, it was still October. Honestly, I blinked and suddenly tomorrow is Thanksgiving. I really don’t know how that happened.

    ’Tis the season, so let me remind everyone that if your organization has changes to its regular meeting schedule because of the upcoming holidays, please let me know so the Community Calendar on Page 7 will be accurate. Send an email to pcodling@mycarrollnews.com.

  • To the editor:

    Milton Fire and Rescue would like to respond to a letter published in last week’s paper.

  • Editor:

    The Haunted Train was a great success. On behalf of the Carroll County Tobacco Festival, we thank all the volunteers for their help  and support to make the Haunted Train and the Castle of Doom a success. Also we thank the committees for all the long hours and hard work.

  • Finding reasons to be thankful can be difficult during the holiday season.

    I have never been a big fan of the holidays, even when my now 16-year-old daughter was a toddler and excited by the big family gatherings. Although I have never had a terrible holiday experience, I don’t remember a time when the season did not make me sad.

  • Editor:

    On behalf of the Carroll County Tobacco Festival, I am writing this letter to the editor.

    About 14 people pull together and put on the festival every year. We put this on as a tradition to the community and the farmers now and of the past. We are trying to keep the heritage going on for our younger generation.

  • Editor:

    “Thank you” doesn’t quite express how grateful I felt for all of the love and support shown by my family and friends. The monies raised enabled me to remain in my home and pay several illness related expenses.

    Beyond the monetary support the expressions of love and encouragement from my community helps me have courage and faith during the hard days of recovery that lie ahead.

    The Trimble County Youth Football League has wrapped up another fun season. We would like to take this opportunity to thank our sponsors for the many contributions we received throughout the season.

    To the parents of our players/cheerleaders, for the dedication of your time, bringing the kids to practice and games, volunteering in the concession stand, running the chain gang and the other help you all offered throughout the season, thank you.

  • To the editor:

    First of all I would like to congratulate Mrs. [Kimberly] Temple for her being re-elected to the Trimble County School Board. Mrs. Temple and her family are what I call good people and I know she will continue to do what we the people expect of her. I would also like to thank the ones that voted for me, an outsider at that. Thank You.

  • The election has passed and all eyes are now looking ahead to the start of the holiday season as Thanksgiving quickly approaches.

    There are many reasons to be thankful, besides the fact that we won’t be bombarded with all the negative campaign advertisements.

    Downtown Carrollton also has a lot to be thankful for this year. Our free wireless Internet service continues to expand and strengthen its coverage.

    More than 1,450 people have made use of the free WiFi system, downloading more than 770 gigabytes of information to their computers.

  • To the editor:

    Due to the loss of a merchant’s sponsorship, the Milton Fire & Rescue Department is currently seeking donations for their Adopt-a-Family program.

    The program provides Trimble County senior citizens and families in need with food, clothing and toys during the Christmas season.

    Please help us insure families in Trimble County have a happy holiday season. Any amount of money donated is greatly appreciated and tax-deductible.

  • Editor:

    The Carroll County Bus Garage would like to thank all the businesses that donated to National Bus Safety Week.

    We would also like to thank everyone out there for helping us to get our students to and from school safely. Without everyone’s help this would not be possible.

  • Most of my life, I never considered mine to be a military family. We had picnics on Memorial Day, but it was more or less just a family day. Veterans Day came and went, with not a thought toward any family members who served.

    It really wasn’t a topic that we discussed.

    I did know we had veterans in my family. My mother’s sister, my Aunt Max, was a member of the Army Nurses Corps in World War II. While serving at the 115th Station Hospital in England, she met my Uncle Gerry Bosscher, an orthodontist from Grand Rapids, Mich., who was an Army doctor.
