  • Editor: My name is Mike True. Saturday, the 6th of March, I was brought to the Carroll County Jail for disorderly conduct and public intoxication. During my stay, I was very incorrigible to the personnel working the night shift. Despite my unruly behavior the jail staff remained calm and acted like the true professionals they are. Carroll

A special thanks is extended to American Legion No. 41 and all Kentucky State and local Emergency Assistance Agencies. Thank you and God Bless you all.   Herman Smith L

  • Editor: I was sad to see the article about the closing of Floyd’s Jewelry.  I am only a part-time resident of Carrollton and live most of the time in Cincinnati.  I have lots of jewelry stores in Cincinnati to choose from, but I usually wait to go to Floyd’s because they had been so nice and had such pretty things.&nb

  • I come from a family that didn’t really put a lot of emphasis on sports. My dad didn’t think they were important. I remember he was angry one time because our high school administrators were going to cancel a trip for students to compete in the regional Science Fair. Both my sisters had earned the chance to go, and they were terribly disappoi

  • Finally. We all know now that, one way or another, the Milton-Madison Bridge will be replaced within the next two years.

    It’s been a long hard road. Just ask Jack Couch, a Trimble County resident and former judge-executive who has been working toward this goal since 1986, when studies first begun on replacing the bridge.

  • Editor: For the past 26 years, Carroll County Memorial Hospital has offered free prostate screenings for the male population of this area.

  • Editor:  On Feb. 13, Operation Prom Dress hosted the Sweetheart’s Silent Auction at Butler Outlet Mall. The turnout was amazing, and we were able to raise more than $500. The Operation Prom Dress staff would like to take this opportunity to thank those who helped make this event a success. First, thank you to the news

  •    As we prepare for a year of electing our county officials, my feelings of being left out of the electoral process have started to surface, again. Carroll County’s elections for county officials will likely be decided this May when the primary is held, being that there are no Republicans running for office. But when I moved

  • Editor:

    My name is Michael L. Stewart, and I am running for Trimble County jailer.

    There have been people asking which “Mike” Stewart” I am, because there are three of us in the county. 

    I am a lifelong resident of Trimble County and the son of Robert W. Stewart. I have worked in farming and construction my whole life and I am a 1980 graduate of Trimble County High School. 

    My wife, Jayna (Stethen) Stewart, and I live in Milton, Ky. 

  • Editor:

    There’s no such thing as a bad hair day when you’ve gone bald for a great cause.

    Over the past 10 years, I have asked countless businesses and individuals in the community to dig deep as I have worked to raise funds for Hosparus and Relay for Life. 

  • Editor:

    Regarding the safety of our children in middle school, I ask: “How long or how much time would it take to move the signs for which directions to go in the school parking lot?” 

    There are still a few people who take the first driveway instead of the second to enter. Will it take a wreck or someone to get killed before the rules are enforced?

  • Saturday, Feb. 6, marked my eighth anniversary with Landmark Community Newspapers Inc.

    It is, by several years, the longest I’ve ever worked for the same company. And, the seven years spent as editor of The News-Democrat are my personal record for length of time spent in the same job.

  • Editor: In 1999, I was appointed to be District Court Judge for Carroll, Grant and Owen counties. This appointment was made by Gov. Patten to fill the vacancy when Judge Stephen Bates left to be our Circuit Court Judge. For the past 11 years, I have been honored to serve as District Judge. As you know, the district court handles a variety

  • This letter is in response to the letter in the Jan. 27 issue of The Trimble Banner. I have been working at the Morgan Community Center since March 1997. I work with children and adults every day. The City of Bedford allows me, along with volunteers, to distribute bread and baked goods Wednesday afternoons to the citizens of Trimble County. Recently, the Bedford City Commission

  • Editor: In 1960, The Metal & Thermit Co, as it was called at the time, conceived, designed, and built a highly specialized plant for the manufacture of specialty coatings. These coatings were used in General Electric dishwashers (in Louisville), in Chevrolet station wagons (in Cleveland) and a variety of other metal cabinetry. In 1962,

  • Editor: Carrollton Girl Scout Troop No. 306 is collecting gently used jeans in all sizes for Haiti victims. This is in collaboration with the Aeropostal Company, which is matching every 100,000 pairs of jeans with 100,000 new jeans to be sent to Haiti. This is a great opportunity to reach out and help those who have lost a lot. I am sure t
