  • ‘City fathers’ choose a raise over a trolley

    Editor:

    I too am very disappointed in our city regarding the trolley. As I recall, a used trolley was on the agenda.

    I guess voting themselves a raise did not allow any money left to help the downtown business district.

    Almost all of downtown used to be a place for visitors, and residents could come to shop. So many merchants had to close because of Wal-Mart and the outlet mall. Now the city does not want a trolley! One more nail in the coffin. Shame on our city fathers!

  • Board, attorney don’t protect taxpayers

    Editor:

    I am writing to you because I am really confused as to why our school board members and their attorney, who is also the Commonwealth Attorney, did not protect our interest in signing the contract with Lisa James to be our superintendent.

  • Schools should be closed Memorial Day

    Editor:

    As a retired employee of the Carroll County school system for 31 years, I believe having school on Memorial Day is one of the most thoughtless things I have ever heard of in the school system.

    Memorial Day is the day we honor all the veterans of the United States of America that have served our country for years and years. It is a day of family get-togethers.

  • Scouts help cleanup after water line break

    Editor:

    The Port William Historical Society would like to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to the scouts and leaders from Boys Scout Troop No. 131 for their help at the Masterson House this past Saturday as we began the clean up from a burst water pipe caused by the recent cold weather.

    Their help was invaluable in getting us started on the renovations necessary from the deluge. Again, to the members and leaders of Troop 131, thank you for your hard work.

    Sam Burgess, President

  • Classes of 1964-65 to hold reunion

    Editor:

  • Speakers for Champions must be OK’d

    Editor:

    I want to take this opportunity to inform those of you that may be somewhat confused on how programs in Carroll County Schools work. I’ve been confronted by different individuals throughout the community on what alcohol or drug awareness/education programs should be brought into our schools. Although [I am] Champions for a Drug Free Carroll County Coordinator, I realize each program we do must be approved by our community coalition and Carroll County School Board. This is according to school board policy and in our federal Drug Free Communities grant.

  • Trolley for city should be funded

    Editor:

    I was shocked, saddened and dumbfounded to see the Carrollton City Council had taken the Carrollton trolley out of the budget.

    The council and tourism should have fought for and had the trolley on the way to running in order to serve the town and our visitors.

  • Help save a life by fostering a dog

    Editor:

    We have a “code red” of the dog world.  We have 10  medium to large dogs that need foster homes immediately.

    They will be leaving in 10-14 days to rescues that have committed to taking them; only if we can get them out of the shelter by this Friday evening.

    Our shelter in Carroll County is full and these 10 furry friends’ time is up.

    We are asking for some help from this community to help save our furry friends.

    The vet will be called this Saturday morning, which means they will be euthanized.

  • Franklin praised for drug town meeting

    Editor:

    A person made a comment that Hayley Franklin has not used drugs, so how can she talk about it at Champions For A Drug Free Carroll County. And they did not live in the county.

    They are wrong. Hayley does a great job. People shouldn’t criticize someone who works so hard.

    Thank you Hayley for the job you do and everybody that works with you.

    I lost my daughter, Mona, to drugs. People tell me to get over her. You never do get over the loss of a child or grandchild.
