  • Editor: With colder weather settling in ,it is “comforting” to know that sixteen homes in Carroll County are warmer through the efforts of volunteers from Project Comfort. October’s blitz day allowed 60-plus volunteers to address lingering problems in the homes of seniors related to warmth and energy conservation. The crews

    For several years, I’ve served as president of Carroll County Animal Support, and my friend JoAnn Parker has served as vice president. Both JoAnn and I have decided it’s time for us step down from these positions and let others lead the group.

    CCAS will meet at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 12, at Welch’s Riverside Restaurant to elect new officers for the board.

    I would like to thank the generous people who entered the Vision of Sugar Plums cooking contest held at McNeal’s during A Christmas Carroll Dec. 5.  There were 62 beautiful desserts turned in for a chance to win a new range from McNeal’s. I could see the time and special attention the people put into their desserts.

  • Editor: This is my final letter to interested Trimble County Youth League participants. I would like to thank everyone for allowing me the opportunity to be involved in enhancing the youth of our community in the aspects of baseball, teamwork, leadership and friendship. It is time for me to step down from the TCYL board and allow a new generation to continue the development of o

    To the citizens of Carroll County, we’d like to thank you all for your contributions to the recent "Scouting for Food" food drive. Your generosity is much appreciated.  

    As previously communicated, the 2008 count was eclipsed by nearly 1,700 items, approximately 14,800 items in all….this despite a continued sour economy. This was awesome.

    The Carroll County Schools continue to do an outstanding job of supporting the food pantry – couldn’t do it without you.

  • Dear Editor:

    We would like to thank the community volunteers at Carroll County Middle School for volunteering their time at our school library, to help our school.

    We are so grateful and appreciate them donating their time to us. Without them we would not be able to keep the library alive.

    We want to thank them for impacting our education and letting us be able to check in and out books.

    Losing everything you have in a fire must be devastating and losing it during the holidays is even worse.  

    Thank God that Linda and Herman Smith did not get injured when their house caught fire on Sunday Nov. 23, just four days before Thanksgiving.    

    Herman is a 26-year veteran.  

    An account has been opened at First National Bank of Carrollton for donations.  

    Linda and Herman lost furniture, household goods clothes and everything.  

  • A veteran baseball player strides to the plate; the bases are loaded in a championship game. This is NOT Casey at the bat; one giant swing, and the contention between adversaries is resolved. The game is won; the crowd is ecstatic. A veteran newspaper reporter cuts through the rhetoric and sound bytes of a political story:his insight allowing him to see the story for what it reall

  • Editor: The Bedford Elementary School PTA would like to thank all of the businesses and individuals who donated to this year’s Fall Festival.

  • Editor: I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to all the volunteers and the following businesses, organizations and individuals for the success of both the Trimble County Cross-Country Invitational in October and the Region 5 Cross-Country Championship event this past weekend at Trimble County Park. I wish to thank the Trimble County Park Board, it’s presid

  • Potential. Ask just about anyone what they think about downtown Carrollton and you will eventually hear talk about the potential they see in reviving the once bustling business district.

    Situated right on the confluence of the Ohio and Kentucky rivers, downtown Carrollton is at first glance a quaint and attractive area with the historic look of a river town from the past. Many buildings have undergone restoration work to restore the Victorian facades that make it so special.

    But a closer look reveals the challenges that face efforts to bring new life to downtown.

     On behalf of the Carroll County Relay For Life Committee (and especially for the many people and families that are battling cancer) I would like to thank everyone who made the “Fall Fun Festival” at the Armory on Oct. 31 a huge success.  All of the volunteers worked really hard before, during and after the event ... creating a fun, family friendly evening for the entire community.

  • So, now Halloween is over and the clocks have been moved back an hour. Let the holiday season begin! It’s hard to believe that I’ve been editor – officially – at the Banner since mid-summer. (Unofficially, I’ve been here since the beginning of April). So, already it’s been for the better part of a year. There are a few things that have been pe
