  • Writer concerned about comments on dispatch

    Editor: This letter is in response to comments made by Jimmy Pollard in regards to the position of Coroner in Carroll County. Mr. Pollard’s comments really didn’t surprise me knowing how disconnected and uninvolved he is in his own County. In reading his letter, I believe that Mr. Pollard implies that the outcome of the Coroners

  • Republican endorses Liter for District 1


    I am a Republican for Chris Liter.

    Four years ago, Chris Liter ran for a public office and at that time I felt he was the most qualified for the office of magistrate. My views and opinions have not changed.

    Chris worked for me at Robus Leather Company as a lab technician. He was never late; preformed his duties in a timely, professional manner; and never failed to complete a task assigned to him. Therefore as a magistrate, you can expect of him the same loyalty and dedication to that office, if he is elected.

  • Carcass removal eeco-pay questioned


    Why are Trimble County farmers charged a $15 co-pay for dead animal removal? As a member of the Trimble County Cattlemen’s Association, in April 2009 I made a motion that was carried to fund the county $4,500 to fund the deceased animal disposal assistance program, requesting that farmers not have to pay a fee for disposal.

    As a farmer, I know that losing livestock creates a hardship, itself; then to have to add the expense of disposal may cause someone to look at other means of disposal. We all want proper disposal of deceased animals.
