  • Columnist adds to the soundtrack of her life with favorites from 2008

    There is a quote by Erasmus that reads “When I get a little money, I buy books; and if any is left, I buy food and clothes.”

  • Coach expresses thanks for tourney support

    Editor:

    On behalf of the Lady Panther Basketball team and Carroll County High School, I would like to say “thanks” to North American Stainless for sponsoring the Girls’ Basketball Classic played at Carroll County High School Dec. 20, 22 and 23.

    The tournament was very successful again this year. Without the financial support from NAS, a holiday tournament such as this could not be held.

    I received compliments from other coaches, school officials and fans for the hospitality shown by our Carroll County people.

  • Shop with a Cop assists 500 children

    Editor:

    On Dec. 18, the Carrollton Police Department and the Carroll County Detention Center conducted our eighth annual “Shop With A Cop” event. This year marked a milestone with our program in that as an eight year total we have surpassed over $100,000 expended to help more than 500 children in need.

    We would like to thank the following for their contributions to our 2008 “Shop With A Cop” event.

  • Everyone is welcome at this Christmas Eve meal

    Over the next two days, families everywhere will gather around the dinner table to share in a special holiday feast. For those who may be dreading the obligatory tradition, I empathize; I also find the holidays torturous.

    But if your trepidation to spend the occasion with your own family is due to the threat of boredom, come on over to our place.

    This year, among the guests expected to join in the festivities at my aunt’s house are The Super Hero, The Neutered Dog and The Naked Parent.

  • Sheriff appreciates support for annual Christmas event

    Sheriff appreciates support for annual Christmas event

    Editor:

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank the following individuals and companies for the wonderful support and help in making this year’s “Christmas with the Sheriff” such a success.

    Because of the amount of support and help we were able to help 79 children have a good Christmas this year. The support of money, time, help and food enabled us to have a great party for the children and the parents/guardians with Santa.

  • PTA appreciates support

    Your generosity was so greatly appreciated!

  • Court action questioned

    To the editor,

    Is our court system fair to our citizens or do they intentionally protect the people that are thieves?

  • Winery could benefit Trimble County tourism

    As a resident of Milton, I’d just like to throw my two cents in regarding the upcoming vote on whether to allow a winery to establish itself here in Trimble County.

    I know that Trimble has been a dry county forever. I’m not really sure why, but having witnessed myself how alcoholism can be harmful to a person and to a person’s family, I do understand how people feel about the sale and use (or, more accurately, abuse) of alcohol.
