  • RAIDERS FREEZE OUT POLAR BEARS

    Trimble County gave the visiting Bracken County Polar Bears a whooping in the annual Bedford Bank Bowl in a lopsided win 50-0 last Friday night. The win snapped Trimble’s six game losing streak.

    This was Trimble’s second win of the season, after getting off to a great start in the opening week, beating Casey County 50-7.

    “It seems every time we score 50 points we win,” coach Jesse Bray joked.

  • Blitz volunteers work on 17 area homes

    Sue Berry of Prestonville didn’t think she’d like plastic covering the windows of her trailer on Newcastle Pike.

But after the first panel of plastic was installed on a living room window by volunteers Rita Westrick and Kuvungal Davy, she had a change of heart.

    But owner Adam Guenther – the man behind the smoke – says not to let that fool you. “This place is new from the ground to the roof.”

  • Shop is wine lovers' dream come true

    By AMANDA HENSLEY

    The News-Democrat

    Owners Harold and Jami Olminsky believe a winery should be an educational opportunity for wine lovers and those who want to learn about wine.

    Their advice? Try all the wines you can. Don’t write off one type of wine based on one brand. Always ask questions.

    Newcomers to Carroll County, the Olminsky’s moved here two years ago from Northeast Ohio. They opened their winery, Shandio Valley, at 108 Court St., Carrollton, in April.
