  • Resident enjoys neighbors’ fireworks

    Editor:

    For the people who shoot off their own fireworks, I know you got complaints. I want to give you a big thank you. I enjoyed watching from my home. There are several reasons I couldn’t go to the Point, including my health, transportation, etc. I’m sure there are others who feel the same way.

  • Walk/run raises $9,400 in Tuttle’s memory to fund scholarships

    Editor:

    Our family has been very fortunate to live in such a loving and generous community. The weekend of the first Tuttle Tots 3k Walk/Run June 14, proved, yet again, that your love and support is still here. On that Saturday morning, 111 people walked or ran in Caroline Tuttle’s memory.

    This group of people, along with our generous sponsors, raised more than $9,400. This money will be returned back to the community in the form of scholarships to teachers whose hearts are with those ages birth to five. 

  • Logging left many problems in park

    Editor:

    We are concerned with the decline of our local state park, General Butler, the most recent issue being the ruthless logging operation of ash trees and other species this past winter and spring.

    Whether this was sound practice is moot at this point. Enormous damage was done in the guise of gaining some $45,000 for a park with an annual budget of $3 million. A pittance.

    Our observations:

  • Writer praises Supplee comments

    Editor:

    A job well done and I am glad our residents are also complaining about the condition of our city.

    As far as I am concerned, all property owners should be responsible for their rental or residence. Yes, sometimes renters do trash the property they rent, but it is the property owners’ responsibility to take action against that. If they paid more attention to what is going on and made periodic investigations of the outside, as well as the inside of their rentals, perhaps they could remedy much of the problems.

  • District extends thanks for school supplies

    Editor:

    Carroll County Schools would like to thank TIC-The Industrial Company, which is owned by Kiewit Corporation and was working as a contractor at Kentucky Utilities Ghent Station, for the generous donation of school supplies that were made to the district.  The donation was very much appreciated and will be put to good use for our students.  Again, thank you to TIC Corporation.

  • ‘End of Life’ program earns praise

    Editor:

    I would like to thank everyone involved in the program “End of Life.” Since I do not know many of the names, I hope this will do for a big thank you.

    The program was held at the First National Bank Friday, June 13. It answered questions about having a living will, including when you need it, when you should have it with you, how long is a valid document and who needs to sign it.

    So many of my questions were answered concerning organ donation. We need to know these things no matter what age we are. 

  • Family searches for Good Samaritan

    Editor:

    My family had a head on collision on Hwy. 36 in Carroll Co. on Feb. 26, 2014. The wreck was caused by an impaired driver. My daughter was stat flighted from the scene and me and my husband were flown from Carroll County Hospital. There was a lady that stopped to help my family. She drove an SUV, I believe it was black. Not sure what the make of it was. We are pretty sure her name was Mary. And I am pretty sure she was from Indiana.
