• New revenue may be only option to fix pensions


    When I began a career in education in 2006, The Kentucky Public Pension 

    system was reported to be one of the most robust in the nation. 

    Unfortunately, the legislature forestalled their annual obligations to the 

    retirement system to fund other programs for several years. (The Courier 

    Journal reports that this happened to varying degrees over a 20-year

  • Greatest weapons are love, compassion


    We the people are at war! Whether it be the children being bombed in Syria, the innocent teenagers in their own schools, or the baby being fed drugs through his own mother’s umbilical cord. We are not waiting for war. We are not hoping that war will not come to our doorsteps. We are at war! The enemy is pure, cold blooded evil, and we must fight!

  • Reader calls on Trump to create Billy Graham Day


    Out of respect for a great leader, I would love for our president to pass a bill calling for Billy Graham Day. School should be out, and state people should get off work. The Graham family has done so much for us and the world. They deserve this tribute to their father in our appreciation.

  • It’s time firefighters get the respect they deserve


    A salute to all the volunteer firefighters.

    I would like to say a big thank you for all of your volunteer services. The fire departments of Carroll County are all volunteer men and women. They spend hours and hours training and practicing on their own personal time. These men and women have families and when that tone goes off they have to leave and go save one of you. Whether it’s a holiday or a weekend, they are always on call.

  • Praise for bridge repair


    To the crew that worked on the bridge going to Worthville. I don’t know who you are but you did an awesome job fixing the bridge.

    Thank you so much. Most bridges you bump getting on and bump getting off but this bridge is so smooth. Just wanted you to know a lot of people out there are saying “thank you”. You deserve it!

  • Keep Carrollton clean, reader suggests


    I moved to Carrollton seven years ago from Pennsylvania and have enjoyed living here, there is so much to enjoy with the two rivers, beautiful flowering trees in the spring, Point Park, and I must say very friendly people.

    Recently I saw an article that stated Carrollton was numbered in the top ten Ghetto towns in Kentucky and I wondered why, when it is such a nice little town to live in.
