  • 2nd-grade teacher reprises popular postcard project

    Cindy Wheeler’s second-grade class at Kathryn Winn Primary school is asking the community to help in its quest to get a postcard from every state in the union – and maybe a few more.

    The students are hoping for people to send them from their vacation destinations or other travels, or to enlist the help of far-flung relatives.

    The project began with last year’s class, which ultimately  received cards from all seven continents and, eventually, all 50 states. Delaware was the last state to be heard from.

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

  • Championship pits Bengals against Cowboys

    Special to The Trimble Banner

    The championship of the Trimble County Flag Football League was held Nov. 1, with the Bengals facing the Cowboys.

    The Bengals first play from the line of scrimmage had Duncan Ralston rumble for 10 yards, followed by a nice 25-yard gain by Grant Weaver. Quarterback Dane Lacefield punched it in from the 5 yard line for the first score of the game. Weaver then scampered in for the extra point to make it 7-0 Bengals.

    The Cowboys then got their first shot at a touchdown.

    Is a new bridge necessary?

    This was the second meeting of the group that has been tasked with brainstorming ideas for possible replacement or rehabilitation of the current bridge that spans the Ohio River from Milton, Ky. to Madison, Ind.
