  • Scouting food drive proves successful

    Editor:

    A huge thanks to Carroll County community for your generosity with the 2016 Scouting for Food Drive. The Carroll County Schools’ students and staff turned in another stellar effort with 14,997 items donated. Special thanks to the Carroll County School administration for their continued support of this effort, without their support our overall totals would be significantly reduced.

  • Legion Riders hosted first Jill’s Wish poker run

    Editor:

    On Saturday, Oct. 22, The American Legion Riders of Post No. 41 did their first annual poker run for Jill’s Wish, a non-profit group that raises money for breast cancer patients. This group has helped several ladies already. The goal was exceeded. The poker run and dance was well attended. We hope next year will be even better. The riders and the American Legion would like to thank all those who donated for this cause to help with breast cancer.

    Editor:

    The residents and staff of Carrollton Manor would like to thank everyone in the community that contributed to the clothing drive/adoption at our facility and to others who have donated clothing, food, knick-knacks and their time. A special thank you to Rev. Tim Polley for organizing the clothing drive/adoption and a very special thank you to Reva McManis, without her taking the first step to make people aware of our residents and their situation none of this could have been possible.

    Thank you again to everyone.

  • Trail ride for Kinman scholarship a success

    Editor:

    The third annual Sheriff Jamie Kinman Scholarship Trail Ride, which took place on Saturday, Oct. 15, was a huge success! The proceeds of the trail ride will benefit local students who plan to attend college, in the form of an academic scholarship. We had around 90 riders this year and raised enough money to give $3,500 in scholarships. I look forward to rewarding students within our community with this money in hopes of allowing them financial relief while striving to follow their dreams.

  • Carroll Countians should exercise their right to vote

    Editor:

    Hundreds of thousands of young Americans are serving our military to preserve our way of life, and yet fewer and fewer of our citizens are participating in our democracy.
