  • Election 2018: Here’s who intends to run

    Who’s running for election? It’s one of the hottest topics around town right now, and the Carroll County Fall Festival parade is traditionally the public’s first glimpse at the candidates.

    However, in order to begin any advertising–including having a float in the parade–potential candidates must file a letter of intent at the Carroll County Clerk’s Office. This is free to complete and does not mean a person’s name will actually be on the ballot in May or November, according to the clerk’s office.

  • God gives us gifts of power, love, sound mind to overcome fear

    Everyone knows what it is like to be afraid. We all have things that we are afraid of.  Some people are afraid of storms or spiders, and some people are terrified of snakes.  There are hidden fears that motivate us, too. Fear of failure causes many people to never start or even try anything that is not completely safe. Fear of rejection makes us afraid to do anything that could draw criticism or give someone a chance to laugh at us.
