  • Volunteer asks businesses to embrace festival

    Editor:

    On behalf of the Carroll County Tobacco Festival, I am writing this letter to the editor.

    About 14 people pull together and put on the festival every year. We put this on as a tradition to the community and the farmers now and of the past. We are trying to keep the heritage going on for our younger generation.

  • Fund-raiser beneficiary says thanks for the help

    Editor:

    “Thank you” doesn’t quite express how grateful I felt for all of the love and support shown by my family and friends. The monies raised enabled me to remain in my home and pay several illness related expenses.

    Beyond the monetary support the expressions of love and encouragement from my community helps me have courage and faith during the hard days of recovery that lie ahead.

  • League thanks volunteers

    To the editor:

    The Trimble County Youth Football League has wrapped up another fun season. We would like to take this opportunity to thank our sponsors for the many contributions we received throughout the season.

    To the parents of our players/cheerleaders, for the dedication of your time, bringing the kids to practice and games, volunteering in the concession stand, running the chain gang and the other help you all offered throughout the season, thank you.

  • Parents should listen to their children

    To the editor:

    First of all I would like to congratulate Mrs. [Kimberly] Temple for her being re-elected to the Trimble County School Board. Mrs. Temple and her family are what I call good people and I know she will continue to do what we the people expect of her. I would also like to thank the ones that voted for me, an outsider at that. Thank You.

  • Downtown prepares to celebrate Another Reason to be Thankful

    The election has passed and all eyes are now looking ahead to the start of the holiday season as Thanksgiving quickly approaches.

    There are many reasons to be thankful, besides the fact that we won’t be bombarded with all the negative campaign advertisements.

    Downtown Carrollton also has a lot to be thankful for this year. Our free wireless Internet service continues to expand and strengthen its coverage.

    More than 1,450 people have made use of the free WiFi system, downloading more than 770 gigabytes of information to their computers.

  • Department needs help

    To the editor:

    Due to the loss of a merchant’s sponsorship, the Milton Fire & Rescue Department is currently seeking donations for their Adopt-a-Family program.

    The program provides Trimble County senior citizens and families in need with food, clothing and toys during the Christmas season.

    Please help us insure families in Trimble County have a happy holiday season. Any amount of money donated is greatly appreciated and tax-deductible.

  • Donors to Bus Safety Week appreciated

    Editor:

    The Carroll County Bus Garage would like to thank all the businesses that donated to National Bus Safety Week.

    We would also like to thank everyone out there for helping us to get our students to and from school safely. Without everyone’s help this would not be possible.

  • Digging into family history reveals several military veterans

    Most of my life, I never considered mine to be a military family. We had picnics on Memorial Day, but it was more or less just a family day. Veterans Day came and went, with not a thought toward any family members who served.

    It really wasn’t a topic that we discussed.

    I did know we had veterans in my family. My mother’s sister, my Aunt Max, was a member of the Army Nurses Corps in World War II. While serving at the 115th Station Hospital in England, she met my Uncle Gerry Bosscher, an orthodontist from Grand Rapids, Mich., who was an Army doctor.
