  • Mayor: I returned citizen’s calls

    Editor:

  • No call from mayor yet

    Editor:

    Well your Carrollton mayor still won’t take Rosemary McCormick’s calls. It makes me glad that we moved from Carrollton 10 years ago to Ghent. She is on a fixed income and just would like her car fixed. The wall of water that messed her car up on Schuerman Road messed her motor up. I hope that if something like that happens around Ghent, that our mayor would at least take our calls.

  • Water issue on Schuerman needs to be fixed

    Editor:

    A dear friend of mine, Rosemary McCormick, was traveling on Schuerman Road on or about May 24, 2017, when a wall of water came out of nowhere and hit her car in the side, stopping it and when she got it started, it was knocking.

    The mayor won’t take her calls, so she can get help fixing it, and her car is not the only one. We are lifelong citizens of Carroll County. We deserve better than that.

  • Thanks for making Lions Club poker run a success

    Editor,

  • Boy Scouts searching for new leaders

    Editor:

    Boy Scouts of America has had a nearly constant presence in the local community over the past 60-plus years – both Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts. While society has certainly changed during that time the values associated with Scouting have been steadfast – just as pertinent today as they were back then. 

  • Worthville cemetery lot owners elect new board

    Editor:

    The lot owners of Worthville Cemetery held an emergency meeting on Saturday, June 17, 2017. The meeting was called to order after the lot owners signed in prior to the meeting. The first order of business consisted of a discussion about the new by-laws that were presented to the lot owners. It became necessary to make amendments to the by-laws because of the actions of three board members that were elected on April 29, 2017. After a length y discussion the new by-laws were adopted by the lot owners with a unanimous vote accepting the amended by-laws into record.

  • Driver praises Hawkins for job well done

    Editor:

    To the Sheriff’s Office, the city of Carrollton and Carroll County, Ky.:

    I was at the front of the line of stalled traffic on I-71 W.B. this afternoon at the scene of the tractor trailer crash. For an hour and a half I observed the first officer to arrive on the spot, take charge, attend to the injured, interview and take pictures, direct others and even haul bags of absorbent, spread and sweep and get dirty. Most likely a job someone else was supposed to do.

  • Lawmakers should use AG settlement returns to combat addiction, violence

    While state leaders may not always agree on how to solve an issue, we can all agree on the major issues staring us in the face.

    Properly funding state employees’ pensions seems to be the issue mentioned the most. Measures passed in 2013 and 2016 by lawmakers have focused resources on addressing that issue, and a special session is planned for later this year. 

    In the meantime, deaths are occurring every day from violence or addiction across the state. In cities like Louisville, we are seeing unprecedented murders and overdoses ravage the community.
