    For The Trimble Banner

    I enjoyed the recent article published in The Trimble Banner on Pearl Harbor so much. It brought back so many memories of my brother and the impact it had on my family at that time.

    Several men from our county were named in the article and among them was my brother Richard “Dick” Willhite. Although I was small at the time it was a time that knowing my “hero,” my oldest brother, was in danger and the concerns we had for him even got through to a young girl.

  • Ex-Trimble man opens Carrollton business

    Dan Alexander, a Trimble County native now living in Carrollton, learned to play pool when he was about 5 years old. Today, he has an eye on turning pro.

    Alexander recently opened Brothers Billiards at 427 Main St. in Carrollton.

    He decided his establishment would be smoke-free and alcohol-free, so that young people could come in and play, too.

    He’s had a few adults come in to play, only to turn around and leave when they discover there is no bar.
