  • Trimble Emergency Management Director   March is severe-storm awareness month. Severe storms can strike at any time, causing long-lasting effects on the lives of our citizens. Through my office, the Kentucky Division of Emergency Management works to prepare and protect Trimble County residents from all hazards and disasters. As we saw recently, severe thunderstorms can bring

  • Editor: For several weeks, public service announcements have stressed the importance of completing the 2010 census form which is arriving in the mail now. It is vital that we participate. There is much at stake. Billions of your tax dollars will be divided among the states based on census results. Funding for education, transportation, Medi

  • Editor:     How many people opened their Carrollton Utilities bill and found a whopper? I got my bill on Friday morning and found that I had used four times more than the previous month.  I immediately called and was told that “Well, you know, it was pretty cold last month.”  They wer

  • Editor: I just wanted to express my sincere appreciation and gratitude to Carroll County Memorial Hospital employees and the community for coming together and making the benefit for Portia Stangle such a huge success. I first want to thank the Relevant Church members and Pastor Mendenhall for the generous use of their beautiful facilities.

  • Kentucky and Indiana legislators are working now to determine how to pay their share of the $111 million not funded by the federal government for the Milton-Madison Bridge project. The good news is each state has agreed to foot half of the bill; the Kentucky House of Representatives included Kentucky’s share in its version of the state

  • Editor: I just want to publicly thank our mail carriers for their efforts to deliver the mail in such treacherous conditions last month.  I could not get out for three days and yet our carrier, Lori, somehow managed to deliver our mail. I truly did not expect it to be there, but to my amazement it was! Hopefully our postal service did not force their employees to risk thei

  • Editor: When I graduated from Carroll County High School in 2004, I moved to college and haven’t moved back to Carrollton since. I still call it my hometown as I believe it is important to remember your roots, not to mention the fact that there are some people there I consider very dear to me. Throughout the past five years I have encountered many opinions about the small t

  • 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

  • Local residents have the chance to learn more about their health and learn about ways to make their lifestyles healthier Saturday at the Carroll County Health and Safety Fair. The National Guard Armory will be packed with more than 40 healthcare providers and organizations between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m., with most offering free services along wit

  • Editor: We would like to say thank you to family, friends and all of the community who assisted us in our recovery after a fire destroyed our home on Nov. 22, 2009. 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. Physicians, as well as hospital staff and community volunteers have offered their time to provide this important service. This year’s screening is from 8 a.m. until noon on Saturday, March 6, in

  • Editor: My daughter, 12-year-old Sabrina Oliver, a seventh grader at Carroll County Middle School underwent high risk brain surgery at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital in Cincinnati, Ohio on Feb. 9. The surgery started at 7:45 a.m. and ended around 3:50 p.m. Sabrina has weakness in her right side, but her doctors say with rehab and spe

  • 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?
