  • Horner thanks Carroll County Public Library

    Editor:

    I would like to give a shout-out to the Carroll County Public Library for all they do for the community. They give everyone in Carroll County access to technology, books and movies.

    One of the great things they do is bring books to classrooms at both Richard B. Cartmell Elementary and Kathryn Winn Primary schools for FREE! These books can also be based on a class learning subject that is being taught. For example, this past month my class was studying women’s suffrage. They brought us books on the topic of women’s suffrage!

  • Exercise caution for motorcyclists

    Editor:

    Spring is here motorcyclists are riding the roadways. If you are riding a motorcycle or driving a vehicle you have a responsibility to protect the motoring public.

    Motorcyclists should take extra care to protect themselves: obey the traffic laws, wear protective riding gear, maintain a safe motorcycle, be aware of weather and road conditions, ride as if the motoring public is not aware you are out there, make sure you are seen in traffic, and ride as if you are invisible. The life you save may be your own.

  • Residents concerned about Worthville Cemetery

    Editor:

    Over the last several years the Worthville Cemetery has been somewhat neglected. The neglect has been caused by several factors that need to be addressed very soon. Our loved ones that entrusted us with their perpetual care are being disrespected by ongoing problems with the current board that now consists of just one sitting member.

  • Hornback supports less ethics training

    Editor:

    Our State Senator, Paul Hornback, co-sponsored SB152 which says exactly this: Amend KRS 6.716 to reduce the ethics training time requirement for members of the General Assembly from three hours to 30 minutes and remove CLE eligibility; repeal KRS 7.101 requiring sexual and workplace harassment training for General Assembly members.

    That’s right, Sen. Hornback wants to eliminate sexual harassment training for legislators and reduce the total ethics training time to just half an hour.

  • Residents want mess at Hwy. 227 cleaned up

    It is disgusting that the residents of Carroll County must endure driving by properties that distort the definition of pride into ugly visions of shame. It even causes most residents to hang their head in shame when they realize that the first, and often lasting, impression of visitors to our county can be seen as they drive down the exit ramp off I-71.
