  • Challenge issued to vote May 19

    Editor:

    Hundreds of thousands of young Americans are serving in our military to preserve our way of life, and yet fewer and fewer of our citizens are participating in our democracy. May 19 is primary election day when Kentuckians will be selecting candidates for Governor, Commissioner of Agriculture, and other constitutional officers. Members of Carroll County Farm Bureau hope every voter will make their voices heard by casting informed votes for our government leaders.

  • Legion says farewell to McMurrys

    This past Saturday, March 14, marked a sad day for the Sons of the American Legion Squad 41 of Carrollton. We, as well as, the American Legion family gathered to say good bye to two long time members. Gene and Sue “Mama Sue” McMurry, both have retired.

  • Thanks to Hospice Bluegrass staff

    Editor:

    To our friends in Carroll County,

    Snow, ice, freezing rain and subzero temperatures were a challenge to much of Kentucky last week. I was touched by the response from Hospice of the Bluegrass staff and our community as so many went to great lengths to ensure homebound hospice patients continued to receive medical and nursing care despite the severe weather.

    As a proud member of 4-H, I would like to share a little about what 4-H means to me and why it is important to our community. I am involved in the Carroll County 4-H activities. These 4-H programs provide me and my fellow 4-H members skills that are vital to our success in today’s global society. I know 4-H will help me to learn valuable lessons and provide me with opportunities that I wouldn’t be exposed to otherwise.
