  • KSP campaign focuses on underage drinking

    Editor:

    I am writing to express my concern for teen-agers who have headed back to school this fall and may be exposed to the dangers of underage use of alcohol.  

    As a Kentucky state trooper, I see first-hand the destruction that underage drinking brings on our youth. One of the hardest tasks for any law enforcement officer is to notify a parent whose teen-aged son or daughter has been killed  in an alcohol-related incident.

    In 2007, Kentucky law enforcement arrested 3,108 people ages 16-19 for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

    Mammograms can save your life.

    That’s a belief held by Dawn Austin of Carrollton, who believes women should never miss those regular tests.

    Diagnosed with invasive ductal carcinoma earlier this year, Austin had surgery in April to remove both her breasts. Doctors also removed a lump, about half the size of a lime, caused by the cancer, which starts in the milk ducts.

  • Quilting skills only part of being a 'Trimble Thimble'

    Their club name – and the fabric stretched before the ladies who gather weekly at the Trimble County Extension Office – make it clear: The Trimble Thimbles is a quiliting group.

    Sitting on the sidelines and listening to their easy banter may lead a visitor to believe this Trimble County Homemakers group is about more than just stitching together pieces of cloth.

    Clean out the freezer and grab your gun or bow: Deer season has arrived in Kentucky.

    Archery season for deer opens Saturday, Sept. 6, and the animals are plentiful in Trimble County and the surrounding region, says Matt Whalen, an officer with the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources.

    Whalen said last year’s outbreak of chronic wasting disease does not appear to have taken a toll on the population in this area, or elsewhere in the state.

  • New CCHS schedule not favored by everyone

    The new seven-period format at Carroll County High School opened to mixed reviews at the start of the school year last month.

    The new format replaces the “block scheduling” that was implemented at the school several years ago. Under that format, students  had four 45-minute classes that met all year and two 90-minute classes that changed each semester.

    The new format allows students to earn seven credits a year, one less than the eight that could be earned under block scheduling.

  • Water district issues boil water advisory

    All customers of Henry County Water District No. 2 are under a boil water advisory until further notice.

    District supervisor Barry Woods said Friday that two 12-inch water mains burst, “almost simultaneously,” Thursday morning at around 9 a.m. He said the boil water advisory could be in effect until after noon on Saturday.

    Woods said the order affects anyone who receives their water from the district, including, but not limited to, residents in Henry County, as well as residents in Shelby, Oldham, and parts of Trimble and western Carroll County.

  • Volunteer proud of those who made 'Madness' a success

    Editor:

    I have a lot of parents, families and friends to thank for everything they have done for Trimble County High School football and me. I worked on Midnight Madness for five weeks. I am very pleased to say it turned out to be a great success. I have so many people to thank, and I do not know where to begin.

    That is why I am writing. I am not a great speaker or writer. I don’t think there is a paper big enough to express my gratitude to everyone. I have never been so proud of people in Trimble County and so disappointed in others.
