  • Franklin thanks community for help

    Editor:

    I just wanted to take a quick moment of time to let some people in the community know that they are so appreciated!

    During the holiday season I was able to participate in a few initiatives where the main goal was to ensure a family’s time during Christmas was happy and plentiful.

  • Animal shelter needs to be operated properly

    Editor:

    This letter is in response to the article in last week’s paper (Dec. 8, 2016) regarding Carroll Co. Animal Support.

    First, Mr. Bowling mentioned that the last time CCAS attended a Fiscal Court meeting was in 2015. Let me say this, why should we continue to go when they never do anything? Also we have met with Judge Westrick and Mr. Bowling with our concerns. We have even had Mr. Bowling meet us at the shelter to discuss different issues.

  • Holiday Food Pantry volunteer opportunities

    Editor:

    On Thursday, Dec. 15, volunteers are needed to pack boxes for food to be delivered for Christmas. Two shifts: 10 a.m. until noon and 6 p.m. until 8 p.m. Come to the Food Pantry at 517 Seventh St.

    On Saturday, Dec. 17, volunteers are needed to deliver food baskets for the needy. Meet at 8:45 a.m. at the Food Pantry to receive a route for delivery. Approximately 50 drivers are needed to deliver around 200 food baskets. In town and in county routes will be available. With everyone working just two hours we can make this project happen!

  • Bank thanks those who attended open house

    Editor:

    Carrollton Federal Bank hosted a Christmas open house on Dec. 9, between the hours of 9 a.m.-5 p.m. The event was held to celebrate Christmas with the community. The event was well attended and received. The attendees received individual gifts as well as homemade refreshments and enjoyed personal fellowship with the staff members.

    The Christmas open house celebration concluded with multiple drawings.

    Congratulations to the winners and thank you to everyone that attended.

  • 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.

  • Poker run event appreciated by Taulbee

    Editor:

  • 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.
