  • 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.

  • Alcohol suspected in two-vehicle accident that injured student

    A two-vehicle collision last week sent two people to the hospital, one with serious injuries.

    The crash happened around 8 a.m. Sept. 17 when a red pickup truck driven by David W. Collins, 35, collided with a 2004 Ford pickup driven by 17-year-old Austin W. Kidwell of Campbellsburg.

  • A home on King’s Ridge was a total loss following a fire that took four volunteer fire companies eight hours to battle a week ago.

    The home of Garland Breeden at 3095 Kings Ridge Road was the scene of a fire that may have started as a result of storm damage, according to Clyde Rowlett, Westside Fire Chief.  “Wires were pulled loose during last weeks wind storm and may have started the fire.”

  • News at 11 - a tree fell on the 18th hole fairway

    They claim to be live, local and late breaking. They say they are reporting the news that affects you. But as far as I could tell last Sunday, Jefferson County television news programs consider local to mean only Louisville and parts of Bullitt and Oldham counties in Kentucky.

    It appears that if you live in Trimble County, you are not the “you” they were talking about in all those news promos.

  • Raiders run at Gallatin

    Trimble County’s Runnin’ Raiders participated in the NCKC at Gallatin County Tuesday, Sept. 16.

Other female finishers were Olivia Cooley, 2nd, Kirsten Baird, 3rd, Amber Bowyer, 10th, Katie Gonterman, 11th, Naidelyn Cabada, 12th, Megan West, 14th, Bonnie Wilson, 15th, Kayla Bailey, 19th, and, Allanis Rosell, 20th.
