  • Alumni Banquet brings back fond high school memories

    Looking out on the faces of the many fellow graduates of Trimble County High School who attended Saturday’s alumni banquet at the Bedford Elementary School, I was filled with pride to be among the select fraternity to which I belong.

    The Infinite Realm, a gospel singing group that I had helped form 40 years ago in said high school, was asked to provide entertainment for this year’s gathering. Each of the six of us in the group are Trimble High graduates, although no two of us were in the same class.

    I see the way you look at us and read your mind so well. Little brat or no control? It’s really hard to tell. I’ve seen the view from your eyes and thought the same things too. Please don’t judge too quickly, as next I could be you.

  • Baseball team thanks community for support

    The Carroll County baseball team would like to take this time to thank everyone involved with the program for their hand in helping bring a regional championship to our community. Many times we look at only the players who played the game as the ones who won the game for us. Let us not forget the ones who work hard in practice daily to push and make the other players better in many ways that also wear the uniform. They are crucial to the team’s success as well, and we recognize that.

  • April brings attention to organ donation

    Editor:

    April has again been recognized as Donate Life Month nationally and here in Kentucky. I feel that this a a good time to thank the many Carroll Countians who have supported organ and tissue donation at our drivers license counter by donating $1 in support of our Kentucky Circuit Court Clerks Trust for Life and by placing their name on the new Kentucky Organ Donor Registry.

  • 'Green Ice' creates perilous road surface for motorcyclists

    Editor:

    As a motorcycle rider, I have to be constantly on guard for road hazards that can cause me to lose control of my bike. Small things like loose gravel or animals darting across the road can be perilous for a biker.

    Another peril is being created by some property owners mowing the grass along the roadway. When the clippings are discharged into the road, it creates what we call “Green Ice” and can cause serious injury or death.
