  • Dispute may force Ghent to name board

    GHENT, Ky. – The Ghent City Commission met in special session Thursday, Oct. 9,  to decide on a variance request by Gary and Cheryl Nohner.

  • Cause of death unknown for 26-year-old Carrollton man

    (Editor's note: The story published in the Oct. 15 issue of The News-Democrat incorrectly indicated that Carroll County Coroner David Wilhoite and KSP Trooper Ryan Gosser said they suspect Tommy Jones Jr.'s death was drug-related. In fact, authorities are unsure of any cause of death. The tests ordered are required, Wilhoite said, when a young person with no prior history of medical history dies suddenly. We regret the error and will run a correction in the Oct. 22 issue.)

  • Varsity and JV suffer end of season losses, while freshman go undefeated

    Some say you can tell how well a future varsity club will do in the future based on how well the underclassman perform. If that is true, the future of Trimble County volleyball is looking excellent because of the young ladies of the freshman team.

  • Note to team - leave the popcorn to the fans in the stands

    Trimble County students were out of classes this week because of fall break. But while everyone, including the high school’s football team, was enjoying the break, the fun had to end sometime.

  • Where is aid for people who lost food to storm?

    Editor:

    Why is it, when the electric was out long enough to ruin food in everyone’s refrigerator, that only welfare recipients get their food replaced?

    What about the families who live week to week that have children to feed? What about the senior citizens who buy their groceries once a month? The food is spoiled, and now they have no way to replace it until next month.

    I know of one welfare mother that gets $800 a month in food stamps, yes I said $800 a month, and is getting another $800 to replace the food she lost.

  • Volunteers made meals possible

    Editor:

    I want to thank Kenneth Kemble, Jacob Kemble, Tonya Edens, Mabel Parrish and Wesley Richmond for donating their time helping me at the Seventh Annual Repair Affair.

    Without their help it would have been impossible to feed the 130-plus volunteers who spent Saturday building and repairing homes for the elderly and disabled in Trimble County.

    It was another great year for us.
