  • Meal ministry proves to be a blessing

    Editor:

    On June 27, we had our third End-of-the-Month Meal Ministry from noon to 1 p.m. at Carrollton Christian Church at 310 Fifth St., in Carrolton, Ky.

    The purpose of this ministry is to provide a home cooked meal to an individual or family that is not able to provide for themselves for whatever circumstance and free of charge. The response was wonderful. We did have 33 visitors to this meal and we were very excited to be able to feed them. The weather was wonderful, the fellowship was spectacular and the people that came and ate with us were blessings.

  • Staff changes may not be ‘news’ but worth mentioning

    Since March, readers may have noticed a shuffle in staffing at the The News-Democrat and The Trimble Banner.

    Changes came about when Trimble Banner managing editor Lorrie Kinkade stepped down to pursue new ventures earlier this year. For a while, Brent Shanding, Landmark Community Newspapers Inc.’s roving editor, filled in at the Beford office. In April, News-Democrat editor Phyllis McLaughlin stepped in and took over the editor’s job there. Additionally, she has continued to manage the special sections produced by the two newspapers each month.

  • Fire department’s efforts appreciated

    Editor:

    What a bargain. If you missed the meal of a fish sandwich, cole slaw, mac and cheese, fries, hush puppies and drink Saturday, June 27 at the Worthville Fire Department, you missed a mouth watering experience.

    Those that were in charge know how to prepare a meal, only $6.

    Thanks Worthville Fire Department — your service to the community is appreciated.

  • American Legion’s poker run successful

    Editor:

  • Congratulations on another successful Trimble County Fair

    Congratulations to everyone involved in making the 2009 Trimble County Fair a big success.

    Though I’ve lived in the county for going on four years and in the area for more than seven, this was the first time I’ve attended the fair here.

    To be quite honest, covering Carroll County’s fair, which usually is held a week or so before Trimble’s, was so exhausting that I seldom felt any desire to go to yet another fair – even just to have fun.

  • Community’s support boosts River Sweep

    Editor:

    The Carrollton Main Street Program wishes to thank the volunteers and its sponsors for making the 2009 Carroll County River Sweep a success. The event drew more than 200 people to cleanup the banks of the Ohio River.

  • Bank’s Relay fundraiser proves to be a success

    Editor:

    The Carrollton Branch of River Valley Financial Bank would like to say thank you to Cee Cee Downey and her Fun Zone Inflatables for making our first Relay for Life Carnival a big success.

    The children enjoyed the time, the weather cooperated and our community came forth.

    We would also like to thank all the businesses and individuals that helped make this event a success. There are too many to mention each one but you know who you are and may God Bless You.
