  • Winery could benefit Trimble County tourism

    As a resident of Milton, I’d just like to throw my two cents in regarding the upcoming vote on whether to allow a winery to establish itself here in Trimble County.

    I know that Trimble has been a dry county forever. I’m not really sure why, but having witnessed myself how alcoholism can be harmful to a person and to a person’s family, I do understand how people feel about the sale and use (or, more accurately, abuse) of alcohol.

  • Lady Panthers pounce on Trimble County rival

    The Carroll County Lady Panthers revved it up Friday night and completely shut down the Lady Raiders of Trimble County.

    Head Coach Randy Mefford said he had written the word “Intensity” on the blackboard in the locker room prior to the game, and it was evident that his team had taken it to heart. The final score saw the Lady Panthers on top, 54-25.

  • TC Raiders take victory at CCHS first home game

    The Trimble County Raiders, Carrollton's border rival, came into the Panther home court last Thursday and got off to a blistering start.

    “They were hitting and we weren’t hitting ours,” Head Coach Carroll Yager said. “We made some good adjustments, and we were able to cut the lead to two points.”

    The first quarter ended with the Panthers down 19-9, but at one point the score was 16-2.

    “The game was closer than the score indicates, because at the end we had to foul to get the ball back,” Yager added.

  • Editor:

    When I read the proposal brought before the County Fiscal Court about the recreational trail, it was disturbing to me.

    Personally I think the money could be put to better use. We are living in an economic crisis and as the winter progresses there are going to be lots of [people in] need in our county. With the federal and state government cutting back, I doubt if the county would get a grant for such an unnecessary project any way soon.
