Talking with Mayor Gene McMurry on Monday, I couldn’t help but feel the enthusiasm he has for revitalizing downtown Carrollton. It is, indeed, infectious.
In 2002, I joined The News-Democrat as editor. One of the reasons I accepted the job was because, when I came for the interview, I immediately fell in love with this small city on the Ohio River. (At that point, I’m not sure I knew there was still another river bordering the city.) To work in a place where one only had to look out the window to see this mighty waterway was a huge attraction for me.
