  • Project Prom chair expresses appreciation to local community, committee members

    Editor:

    On behalf of Trimble County Project Prom I would like to thank those who donated to us. Whether it was through a donation of money, items or time we appreciate all that was given to make this event such a success.

    I would especially like to thank the Project Prom Committee and the dedication they have brought to this committee. Many were new to this committee this year and they were fantastic workers. Without a committee this event would not be possible.

  • Bob’s Bunch Battling ALS Benefit

    Editor:

    On April 14th,  Bob’s Bunch Battling ALS held a fundraiser at the Morgan Community Center.  The benefit was a huge success raising $15,545.  The money raised will be used for research to find a cure and patient services.

  • Bob’s Bunch thanks Arkema, others for supporting ALS campaign

    Editor:

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank Arkema Carrollton Plant and its employees for their support for my family. I was employed at this company for more than 25 years before I left to work home health full time. My brother-in-law was diagnosed with ALS three years ago and my family has been very active in fundraising for this non-profit organization to search for a cure, buy equipment and provide support for people affected by this  terrible disease.

  • Chief Long has Milton’s back

    Editor:
    I write to you today in response to the letter written to you from Larry Graves. First, let me start by saying I am a career firefighter from Iowa. I attended a weeklong command and control class at the National Fire Academy in February with the Milton Fire Chief, Jason Long. This class was specifically designed for officers of fire departments that will deal with   large scale incidents, i.e. tornadoes.

  • Join Milton Dept., make a difference

    Editor:

    This letter is in response to Mr. Graves’ Letter to the Editor.

    If the fire department is making most of their money to stay in operation from the numerous fish fries, in turn to help the community, how feasible would a tent be? And what about health inspection? I feel that a person should base their opinion after checking with all sources. That is the difference between reality and fiction.

  • Concerns answered

    Editor:

    I am the president of Milton Fire and Rescue writing in response to Mr. Graves’s letter in the April 4 Trimble Banner. This letter and these comments are my own.

    These are some things the people of Milton and Trimble County need to know about.

    First, the Tornado Victims Benefit Concert, held for all those affected by the March 2 tornadoes—although light in turnout—was a success.

  • Reader has concerns about fire department

    Editor:

    This is something the people of Milton and Trimble County need to think about. First off, I hope the Tornado Victims Benefit Concert on Saturday, March 31, was a great success. There were several victims in Trimble County that lost everything they own and others that needed help. I wish them the very best.

  • EPA regulations need support from all

    Editor:
    New EPA regulations proposed for limiting carbon pollution, soot, toxic mercury and other pollutants coming from coal-fired power plants are long overdue and can result in better health for our citizens, create jobs and counter climate change.

  • TCEM director thanks all for help after storm
