    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.

  • Lady Raiders run to sixth place finish at state

    Coming off their fifth consecutive regional championship, the Trimble County girls cross country team found a competitive state field waiting on them in Lexington last weekend.

    Probably the most competitive Kentucky Girls Class “A” State race in the past decade occurred at the Kentucky Horse Park Saturday, Nov. 15. Only 14 points separated third place from ninth in the state meet and just four 4 points kept the sixth place Lady Raiders from finishing third overall.

    Is a new bridge necessary?

    That was the question at the forefront when members of the Milton-Madison Bridge project advisory group met last week to continue addressing how best to resolve issues with the important structure’s inadequacies.

    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.

    Editor:

    The Carroll County Bus Garage would like to thank all the businesses that donated to National Bus Safety Week.

    We would also like to thank everyone out there for helping us to get our students to and from school safely. Without everyone’s help this would not be possible.

  • Committee hopes to blaze trails to connect local parks

    Imagine seven miles of walking and hiking trails that could take you from General Butler State Resort Part to Carroll County’s Robert Westrick Memorial Park.

    Connecting the two parks with a new trail along the abandoned Lock Road is one of the goals of the county’s Recreational Trails Committee, led by Joan Moore, executive director of the Carroll County Community Development Corporation.

  • Runnin’ Raiders surprise rivals with fourth-place finish at state meet

    Expected to place seventh in the state meet, the Trimble County Cross Country boys team surprised the state field last weekend by placing fourth overall. The fourth place finish is the highest placing in school history, outside of the 1954 State Championship.

    The rain, sleet, wind and cold weather didn’t slow the Raiders boys down as they placed five guys under the 18:01 mark and finishing with a team average of 17:40, the fastest Trimble County team in school history.

  • Panthers lose their 'groove' against Dayton's Green Devils

    The Carroll County Panther football season came to an end Friday night, Nov. 7, on the Green Devils’ field in Dayton, Ky.

    The Panthers, losing 50-20, seemed to be just a step behind the Green Devils the whole game.

    It was a team the Panthers beat last year, and one that has been losing to everyone else this year, sporting a 1-8 record until the Panthers showed up.

    The Panthers, went 5 and 5 on the season and need to now get ready for post season play.

  • Dinner or hunger?

    By LORRIE KINKADE

    This week, more than two-dozen boys from Milton will give of themselves to help those in Trimble County who have fallen upon hard times. Their success, however, depends on you.

    Despite the welcome drop in fuel prices recently, many in the community continue to struggle to afford necessities, such as food. For some, family members may be able to pitch in when needed. But for others, resources like the food pantry at Milton Methodist Church make the difference between putting dinner on the table or going without.
