  • Football thanks Humphrey, Butcher

    Editor:

    With so many negatives in today’s society, I wanted to take the time to bring attention to a positive that exists in our community. 

  • Veteran says thanks for opportunity to speak

    Editor:

    I would like to say a big thank you to Mrs. (Dana) Oak at the middle school. I was asked by her to speak to the student body and staff on Nov. 11, Veterans Day. I was honored by the way the program was delivered. I was asked not to use any salty language. Mrs. Oak, to my knowledge, I was on task.

     

    Respectfully,

    Ronald G. Burgess

    HMC, USN Retired

  • Transportation help appreciated

    Editor:

    I would like to thank Chris and Robert from Herb Kinman’s Chevrolet for their assistance with much needed transportation help. It would have been difficult with out their help. Thank you and God Bless.

  • First Miss Carrollton pageant a success

    Editor:

    I’d like to take this opportunity to thank some great people that made the month of November 2014 one to remember.

    Huge thanks to everyone that made our very first Miss Carrollton Scholarship Pageant a success.

    The winner of this prelim will go on to the Miss Kentucky Pageant and hopefully even further onto the Miss America stage.

     This was not only a beauty pageant but one of scholarship, style, service and success (the four points of the crown).

  • Operation Christmas Child collects 499 shoeboxes

  • Scouting for Food proves successful

    Editor:

    The 2014 Scouting for Food food-drive wrapped up this weekend with another successful campaign, thanks to the support and commitment of the folks that call Carroll County home. The combination of school and house-to-house efforts yielded 19,042 items; while not a record it was another fantastic effort. 

  • Volunteers needed to post food drive fliers

    Editor:

    It’s that time of year again. The 2014 Scouting For Food campaign gets underway this Saturday. 

    Scouts and community volunteers will be out and about this Saturday morning, Nov. 15., placing some 2,000 flyers on community homes as a reminder of the food collection effort that occurs the following Saturday, Nov. 22.

  • Special Olympics extends its thanks

    Editor:

  • Two voters support Grimes in race

    Editor: 

    Be an informed voter. It will soon be time to vote in the upcoming election. Before you vote, did you know you can go online and check out the voting record of candidates? We did just that and you can too.

    At the end of this letter will be an Internet address you can access to check the facts we have found. 

    Here is what we found, Sen. Mitch McConnell’s voting records:

  • McConnell can make Senate action on bills

    Editor:

    This election is the most important in our lifetime. I believe Obama has froze the Senate only Harry Reid can approve any legislation that needs to be voted on. No one else has any authority.

    If McConnell wins this election he will be able to ensure bills can be voted on in the Senate. If Grimes wins nothing can occur legislatively without Reid and Obama’s approval. Hence then we are frozen in the Senate until Obama leaves in two years.
