  • Readers’ assistance sought in providing news tips, photos

    We at The Trimble Banner do our best to keep up with all the newsworthy activities and events that involve our neighbors and friends here in Trimble County. However, due to limited staff resources we cannot be at every event.

    We have a number of folks who are kind enough to provide photos and news stories and tips. I especially want to salute my photographer friends Teresa Tebib, Jim Pirtle and Todd Pollock who frequently contribute their work to the cause.

  • Handicapped pet steals hearts of Carrollton family


    The News-Democrat Intern

    Spinner is blind and deaf.

    He got his name because he cannot walk in a straight line. Instead, he goes around in circles because he cannot see or hear.

    Spinner is a four-month-old chihuahua/terrier mix under the foster care of Leah Hill. Leah is a member Carroll County Animal Support, which she says can be a “full-time job.” Her other full-time job is at Carroll County Dispatch.
