  • Providing care for wild animals is dangerous, illegal

    Watching wildlife is a really fun and exciting activity. It can be very enjoyable to watch wildlife in their natural state in our surroundings. This time of year can be especially exciting because the young wild animals can be seen.

    If we are outside, we may come across young wild animals that appear to be abandoned or orphaned. The big question is what should we do about it?

    First and foremost, do not bring the animal in your home for care. This may be the worst thing you can do for these young animals.

  • Howe, Winslow brought businesses to Carrollton

    Doing the research for the “Images of America” book was a lot of fun, but unfortunately the format didn’t allow me to put in much information about any one person or event.

    Case in point: Beverly Winslow Howe, whose image appears on Page 56. Howe was a member of a very prominent and influential family that was involved in many businesses in Carrollton. He was born in this city Nov. 18, 1885, to William F. and Louisiana (a.k.a. Louise) Winslow Howe.

  • CRUISIN’ IN

    By SARAH BEACH

    More than 50 antique cars lined up for the Kentucky Kruisers annual car show Saturday.

    Organizers this year decided to hold the show earlier in the summer and move it to the entrance of General Butler State Resort Park. Previously, the show was held in September at Point Park, but that location was in heavy demand.

    Brent Stucker, who has been president of the organization for six years, said the new location offers more shade and less competition with other events.
