  • Thanks to all who helped with poker run

    Editor:

    Carroll County is a great place to call home. We are a small knit community that pulls together time after time to help others in need. On Aug. 2, I was overwhelmed at the generosity of many people from this small town. Thanks to some very special people, the funeral expenses for my fiancé have been paid in full.

  • Event will help with Smith expenses

    Editor:

    On Aug. 2, people gathered at McCool’s Tavern in Ghent, Ky. to raise money to help pay the final cost of the funeral for Leonda Smith.

    Riders came together and rode through Kentucky and Indiana,  returning to McCool’s in Ghent.  Local business owners provided a meal, door prizes and raffle items. Donations were accepted from everyone.

  • Poker Run raises funds for Christmas

    Editor:

    We would like to say “thank you” to everyone who donated to the Christmas in August Poker Run.

    Your donations help generate money through our raffle and silent auction. We truly appreciate all the businesses who were able to help us. I would list everyone individually but there are more than 100.

  • Taxpayer unhappy with paving work

    Editor:

    As taxpayers sometimes we wonder where our money is spent. I saw it used Thursday on Harley Drive. They finally paved the street after several years. But it was a problem and no one seemed to want to fix it. The company the city hired to do the work piled all the dirt and gravel in my driveway. I asked the paving company who was going to fix it and they said they were. But after paving the street, they left, leaving the clean up for me.

  • New policy concerns rescue squad officers

    Editor:

    This article is being written as a direct rebuttal to the allegations brought against the rescue squad and its members.

    These allegations are not only untrue but also a direct attack against the squad and its members. If there is proof that there have been recent accidents involving the rescue squad and their privately owned vehicles, while responding to incidents it needs to be brought forth to the Board of Directors of Carroll County Rescue.

  • Fiscal Court should support sheriff's office

    Editor:

    I attended two “Get to know the Candidates” forums before the election. When asked what the biggest problem facing Carroll County, most candidates  replied: “The drug problem”; “We have to fix the drug problem”; or “We need to get a handle on the drug problem.”

  • Kudos offered to staff at county hospital

    Editor:

    I wish to give a “hats off” to the staff at Carroll County Memorial Hospital.

    My husband, Bob Wilson, had to be admitted for a couple days. We were very pleased with his care and the family’s treatment.

    Thank you to the staff at CCMH. You were very professional and competent.

  • Champions ‘thank you’ for help at town hall meetings

    Editor:
    Champions for a Drug Free Carroll County would like to take a moment to thank everyone that came out to the Worthville and Sanders Town Hall meetings in July. We wouldn’t be successful without all of you and your hard work.

  • Community needs more sheriff’s deputies

    Editor:
    The Fiscal Court needs a plan of action to show how another sheriff would benefit the community?
    Just read the newspaper or watch the television news to know of the drug and criminal activity increasing in Carroll County. Go to your local city/commission meetings and hear the frustrations of the citizens trying to deal with these situations.
