    Champions for a Drug Free Carroll County

  • Photo contest offers chance to win prizes, have shot in calendar

    I love to shoot photos in my free time. When I went to San Diego last year, I spent a lot of time capturing scenic pictures and touring through the city’s Gas Lamp district to get a few shots of the historic architecture.

    We often do that when we travel. And some of us do it here at home. Downtown Carrollton is one of the places I often focus on when the seasons change – when trees bloom or there’s a blanket of snow on the ground, or to capture the interesting architecture in the historic district.

  • Disaster assistance available

    On May 4, President Obama declared 14 Kentucky counties as disaster areas due to damage and losses caused by severe storms, tornadoes and flooding that started April 26 and, in some places, continues.

    Carroll County is on this list, along with Boone, Bracken, Campbell, Carter, Fleming, Gallatin, Kenton, Lawrence, Morgan, Nicholas, Oldham, Owen and Washington.
