  • Library offers wide selection of books

    National Library Week started in 1958, and was based on the idea that once people were motivated to read, they would support libraries. The first National Library Week theme was “Wake Up and Read!” Fast forward 59 years and the theme is “Libraries Transform.” This reflects the transformation of libraries over the years. As our lives, families and communities change, so must our libraries. We have so many resources at your disposal–some you associate with libraries and some you may not.

  • Senator touts successes from session

    Long nights, intense debate, and media attention from across the globe wrapped up what started as a quiet final week of the 2017 Session of the Kentucky General Assembly.

  • Bill makes driver’s licenses qualified IDs

    It’s been good to be back among the people of the 47th House District in Carroll, Gallatin, Henry and Trimble counties since the adjournment of the 2017 session of the Kentucky General Assembly on March 30.

  • Plea bargain proves to be right solution for county, Kinman

    Carroll County Common-wealth’s Attorney Jim Crawford deserves praise for his recent handling of the Sheriff Jamie Kinman case, where he was indicted on several felonies, misdemeanors and malfeasance violations.

    There are people who have been critical of the plea agreement Crawford worked out in the Kinman case. I believe everyone needs to step back and look at how the agreement was the right way to go for the county’s taxpayers and those who depend on the sheriff’s office as their primary law enforcement agency.

    The next time you head out to Robert Westrick Memorial Park, take a seat at one of the new benches or eat lunch at one of the new picnic tables next to the batting cages. The additional seating was made possible by local Troop 131 Eagle Scout Kameron Nab.

  • A step in the right direction - Walking

    Spring is in the air and warm weather is a nice welcome. We all need to get outside and enjoy the sunshine and get some exercise in the process.

    Walking is one of the easiest ways to be physically active. You can do it almost anywhere and at any time. Walking is also inexpensive. All you need is a pair of shoes and sturdy heel support. Walking gives you more energy, makes you feel good, helps you relax, reduces stress, helps you sleep better, and helps control your appetite.
