Today's Opinions

  • 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.

  • Citizen announces candidacy

    To the editor,

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Business Celebration Day was a big success

    Editor:

    On Sept. 18, the Carroll County Chamber of Commerce and the Carroll County Community Development Corporation partnered in hosting the first Business Celebration Day on Courthouse Square in Carrollton.

    The event was free to the public and showcased 51Chamber members. Mini-business seminars were held from 4-6:30 p.m. Food bought with donations from  Arkema and the City of Carrollton was handed out for free to more than 400 people who attended.

  • Hurricane Ike brought out the ‘neighbor’ in Carroll Countians

    Without a doubt, I think it’s safe to say that “neighborliness” is alive and well in Carroll County.

    After Hurricane Ike blew through the area on Sunday, Sept. 14 – actually, before Ike was even finished with us – people were out and about, moving trees out of roadways and checking in on their neighbors to make sure everything was OK.

  • 9th annual Neighborhood Watch offered fellowship

    Editor:

    The Housing Authority of Carrollton recently hosted it’s ninth annual Neighborhood Watch Picnic. It was an evening of good food, wholesome fun and fellowship among neighbors. The steady growth in attendance each year shows that Neighborhood Watch really is a program without bounds.

  • Thanks to community volunteers

    To the editor,

    Thank you to everyone in the community who gave time, energy and resources to help clean up the aftermath of last Sunday’s wind storm.

    From the time the storm began in the early afternoon until well into the night and the following morning, county residents were there, clearing trees and debris from roadways and participating in impromptu traffic control while the removal took place. Throughout the day, it was common to see the residents of our county exiting vehicles to saw a path through fallen limbs, making travel safer for everyone.
