    While local and state officials consider the Milton-Madison Bridge obsolete, a pair of peregrine falcons seem to think it’s a great place to raise a family.

    There’s nothing better than a bored drug-sniffing dog. Just ask Stirling Sampson, principal of Trimble County High School.

    Ron Moser of Discreet Detection K-9 Services of Louisville brought his Dutch shepherd, a 7-year-old female named Beuji, for the fourth and final visit to the school for 2008-09. The pair found nothing suspicious in any of the classrooms, lockers or student cars in the parking lot.

    Editor:

    I want to thank everyone who has helped me flag veterans graves on the Sunday before Memorial Day.  Each year American Legion Post 41 sponsors this program and has for a long time. This is done with many dedicated volunteers who show up each year without being asked. They just know it happens.

    If you have a child support case in Carroll County and feel like you are being treated unfairly by the case workers — whether you are the one getting or sending support — you can report your issue to either Jim Monk or his assistant Nick Marsh at (502) 732-7009. Just make an appointment.

    Mr. Marsh is new and is changing some things and assures me he will listen to your complaint and look into it. The case workers and other people in that office work for Mr. Monk.
