Letters

  • Grant Co. resident supports Threlkeld

    Editor:

    I am writing this letter to ask the people in this county to elect John Brent Threlkeld to the office of Circuit Court Judge. In the seven years I have known him, he has grown into a very trusted friend, and I know he is the best person for this job.

  • Support the EPA’s efforts to protect the Clean Water Act

    Editor:

    In Kentucky, we are blessed with lots of fresh water.

    But much of that water is at risk. The Clean Water Act, intended to protect our waterways from pollution, is under attack from industry groups, which desire to pollute, cover or destroy critical waterways.

  • Retired teachers to collect for food pantry

    Editor:

    Retired Teachers’ week will be Oct. 19-25. The purpose of the week is to promote awareness of how retired educators give back to the community.

    Each year, the Kentucky Retired Teachers’ Association collects volunteer hours from each local association. For the 2013 year, CCRTA reported a total of 877 volunteer hours. The actual number was probably higher because not everyone reports their hours.

  • Adkins asks voters to support Knight

    Editor:

    To the voters of the 15th Circuit, Grant,  Owen and Carroll counties: I wish to thank all of you who voted for me in the May Primary election for Circuit Judge. I am honored and grateful for your support. My family and I worked hard, and a special thanks to my daughters, Klaire, Alyssa, Darcy and Lauren, for walking so many miles and knocking on all those doors.

  • Thanks for supporting Woofstock

    Editor:

    Carroll County Animal Support was started 11-and-a-half years ago with a handful of people who saw a need to help the unwanted, homeless and abused animals in our community.

    At that time, we only hoped to be where we are today and to see all the wonderful people who came to our first Woofstock event at General Butler State Resort Park. Their support was, just in a word, fantastic.

    There is no way topersonally thank everyone who helped at Woofstock, but we want to try.

  • Thanks given for helping with car problem

    Editor:

    I’ve always been impressed with the people of Carrollton, now even more so. I was having trouble with the ignition key  in my car. I was parked in front of Picker’s Paradise across from Webster’s Drug store. The owner came out to help me and tried several things, but we couldn’t get it to work. She gave me the number for Chuck’s Lock Shop in Carrollton.

  • Cattlemen’s thanks those for help with Field Day

    Editor:

    The Carroll County Cattlemen’s Association would like to give a special thanks to Jason and Robin Stephenson for hosting the Family Farm Field Day last Saturday, Sept. 20.  It takes a lot of work preparing a farm for this event.  Their farm looked great, and it was a beautiful day for the event.
