  • Team put others first

    Editor:

    I would like to compliment Chief Ronnie McCane, George Griffith and the entire Trimble County disaster management team.

    During the recent wind storm, they provided traffic control due to power outages to the traffic signals, risking personal injury when they needed to be at home taking care of their own properties.

    Trimble County should be proud of this fine group of men and women.

    By ANGELA WOODS

    The Lady Panthers had good times and bad times during home games last week against Oldham County and Trimble County.

    On Thursday, Sept. 25, the Carroll County High School team worked long and hard, but lost to Oldham County, 25-13 and 25-9.  Oldham is the No. 1 seed in the district.

    But it was good practice as they prepare for the upcoming Class A state tournament.

  • Boys golf team takes 7-0 record to regional contest

    Trimble County boys golf looked great as they headed into this week’s regional tournament.

    With a record of 7-0 for the season, the future looked promising when the team met on the green at Kenton County’s The Willows golf course Sept. 29.

    Ranked one of the hardest courses in the state, Raider players discovered why The Willows back 9 is said to be among the top 3 toughest in the state.

    Despite not claiming a region victory, the boys golf team, like other Raider athletic clubs, did not go down without a fight Monday.

  • Henry grant benefits Trimble

    To the editor,

    On Wednesday, August 27, 2008, Director of National Drug Control Policy John Walters announced the new grant recipients for Drug-Free Communities Mentoring Support Program. Our neighbor, the Henry Co. CARE Team, was one of only 14 coalitions from across the country to receive the grant award. So how does Trimble County benefit? With this grant, the CARE Team will work with community leaders to revitalize and strengthen the Trimble Co. Drug-Free Task Force as they strive to make an impact on the reduction of substance use and abuse in Trimble County.

  • Down to the nitty gritty with the football Raiders

    Special to the Trimble Banner

    Like always, when the Trimble County Raiders and the Gallatin County Wildcats, district rivals, face off on the gridiron, you can almost always expect a nose grinding, very physical, great defensive game.

    This is similar to last year’s playoff game at Gallatin County and exactly what the fans got again this last week.

    On Friday September 19, 2008 the Raiders traveled to Gallatin, but came up short once again, losing 15-6.

    Carroll County Sheriff’s Deputy J.T. Shaw recently was named Deputy of the Year by the Kentucky Sheriff’s Association.

    Shaw received the honor during the KSA’s annual conference Sept. 13 in Louisville.

    Shaw, 33, has been with the local sheriff’s department for 18 months, and has been in law enforcement for five years.

    Sheriff Ben Smith said Shaw probably is one of the most educated deputies in the state. “He is even certified in mountain biking.”

    Endurance is the name of the game in cross country, and D’Anthony Collins proved he is a champion in that category running 3.1 miles in under 20 minutes.

    Collins completed that feat after attending football practice for three hours that same afternoon.

    Only runners from cross-country powerhouses Walton Verona and Trimble County crossed the finish line ahead of Collins.

    The boys and girls teams each finished fourth out of the eight teams entered in each division.

  • POPLAR RIDGE BAPTIST PREPARES TO CELEBRATE 150 YEARS

    The 1938 destruction of 80 years of records couldn’t erase the rich history of Poplar Ridge Baptist Church.

    Terry Abbott, a member of the 150-year-old church’s congregation, has copies of two typewritten accounts of the church’s past – one compiled 50 years ago primarily from documents housed at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and Trimble County Clerk’s office and another recreating events from 1983-1998 – which take the place of decades of church documents inadvertently destroyed so many years ago.

  • Volunteers make plans for repairs

    Ladders, hammers and paintbrushes in tow, volunteers are expected to be scattered throughout the area Saturday, Sept. 27 for the annual Trimble County Repair Affair.

    Since the program began in 2002, men, women and children from Trimble County and the surrounding area have pitched in to make a difference in the lives of those less fortunate by making much needed repairs and modifications to their homes. With a little luck, this year will be no different.
