Letters

  • 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.

  • Friendly folks come to motorist’s aid

    Editor:

    I am from Cincinnati and I was taking my son for an overnight visit at Hanover College.

    We got off at the Carrollton exit and started having car trouble. We made it to the Marathon station. Our car would not go forward. I did not know what to do. We didn’t know anyone and the college was too far to call for help. We had to move the car somewhere else in the parking lot.

  • Fund established to put a memorial bench

    Editor:

    The community was so caring about the death of Michael Beach on Oct. 8, 2013. We are proud to have the opportunity, with Hometown Pizza’s generous approval, to place a bench in Michael Beach’s memory at the accident site as a memorial and to serve as a reminder of what could happen with careless driving.

    An account has been started at First National Bank of Carrollton by me for the Michael Beach’s Memorial Bench Fund. Any donations can be accepted by FNB.

    family of Michael Beach

  • Author was right about technology

    Editor:

    I do not know Kathryn Gillespie, but I wish to commend her for last week’s thought-provoking article on American society’s excessive use of technology. I agree with much that she had to say.

    Having, in the past, been employed in the data processing field and also having a tendency toward “internet addiction,” I have thought much on this topic.

  • Family appreciates those who serve

    Editor:

    This letter is in dedication to all of our community firefighters, policemen and women, EMTs and first responders.

    We think, in general, people, and including ourselves, have taken these very special and much needed people and their service to our community for granted.

  • Honest man turns in lost ATM card

    Editor:

    In the midst of crimes and untrustworthy people, there are still those who hold fast to their integrity.

    Not long ago, I dropped my debit card outside of Speedway in Carrollton. I did not miss it until later. I was really worried and was just getting ready to cancel it when the bank called and said they had mya card.

    The man who found it took it to my bank and put it in the night depositary. He did not stop there, but called the bank to verify that they found it.

  • NAMI group looks to form locally

    Editor:

    There is a national organization-National Alliance for Mental Illness, that is just awesome and has helped many people. We need this in Carroll County.

    We are going to be offering a 12-week course starting on Thursday, March 6, from 6-8:30 p.m. upstairs in the old courthouse for families who have members who suffer from mental illness. It is free.

  • CCHS students praised for sportsmanship

    Editor:

    My name is Cindy Cornett and I am a parent of No. 35, Justin Cornett, on Cordia’s basketball team. Your students are to be commended. Their kindness did not go unnoticed.  

  • Snow removal efforts appreciated by family

    Editor:

    We would like to acknowledge the City of Ghent snow removal/road work by Jimmy Lewellyn. His dedication to plowing and salting the roads by being out extremely early in the morning and continually up keeping the equipment and supplies in order to provide manageable roads for drivers needs to be acknowledged. His commitment to the job goes way beyond being a City Commissioner/Supervisor of Streets and Roads; he cares about the city and its safety. It’s important to take the time to thank Jimmy for his volunteer efforts.

    Joe Eddie and Mary Beall,

  • KU group donations to Lighthouse

    Editor:

    I want to thank the Kentucky Utilities Recreation Committee for its wonderful, generous donations to the children of the Cartmell Elementary Lighthouse. The students were thrilled to receive soccer balls, art supplies, building sets and puzzles. The hula hoops we received were a huge hit, and the kids are looking forward to tie-dying T-shirts when the weather is warmer. Most exciting for them was the Wii, controllers and “Just Dance 2014” game. We have a lot of dancers here!
