  • Thanks for supporting Woofstock

    Editor:

    Carroll County Animal Support was started 11-and-a-half years ago with a handful of people who saw a need to help the unwanted, homeless and abused animals in our community.

    At that time, we only hoped to be where we are today and to see all the wonderful people who came to our first Woofstock event at General Butler State Resort Park. Their support was, just in a word, fantastic.

    There is no way topersonally thank everyone who helped at Woofstock, but we want to try.

  • Thanks given for helping with car problem

    Editor:

    I’ve always been impressed with the people of Carrollton, now even more so. I was having trouble with the ignition key  in my car. I was parked in front of Picker’s Paradise across from Webster’s Drug store. The owner came out to help me and tried several things, but we couldn’t get it to work. She gave me the number for Chuck’s Lock Shop in Carrollton.

  • Cattlemen’s thanks those for help with Field Day

    Editor:

    The Carroll County Cattlemen’s Association would like to give a special thanks to Jason and Robin Stephenson for hosting the Family Farm Field Day last Saturday, Sept. 20.  It takes a lot of work preparing a farm for this event.  Their farm looked great, and it was a beautiful day for the event. 

  • Mayor: City attempted to clean up mess

    Editor:

    This letter is in response to Dennis Webster’s letter published Sept. 11, 2014, concerning dirt and gravel left in his drive after Harley Drive was resurfaced.

  • Resident wants mess in drive cleaned up

     Editor:

    It’s been three weeks since they paved Harley Drive, leaving the mess of dirt and gravel in my drive for me to clean up.

  • Mattresses must be bagged for trash

    Editor:

    I have noticed several used mattresses along the curb recently for pick up by the trash collectors. Rumpke will pick up mattresses and furniture if they are properly prepared. 

    Due to the bed bug infestation, these items will not be taken by Rumpke unless they are sealed in a plastic bag. The bags are available from the city by contacting the mayor’s office at (502) 732-7051 or Public Works at 304 Sycamore Street, (502) 732-7050, or the Code Enforcement Officer at (502) 732-7043. 

  • Office appreciates response to robbery

    Editor:

    I want to say a very big thank you to the Carrollton Police Department for its help and effort in responding to the robbery in June at U.S. Bank.  They responded very quickly and continued to work very diligently in making sure the guy was apprehended and protected.

  • 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.
