  • Couple impressed by community play

    Editor:

    It’s a wonderful life ... in Carrollton. Saturday evening, my wife and I went to the Carroll County Middle School to see the play entitled “It’s A Wonderful Life.” Wow! We really enjoyed the play and would like to thank the entire cast and crew for a job well done. We were amazed at the local talent and were able to visit several friends we hadn’t seen in a while.

    The play was an excellent choice, with its emphasis on faith, family, friends and community. Just another reason we are proud to call Carrollton our home.

  • Theatrical fundraiser commendable endeavor

    Editor:

    Just a note to say I had been toying with the thought of going to see the upcoming local performance of “It’s A Wonderful Life,” but something in last week’s News-Democrat article made the decision for me.

    I now  have plans to be there, even if there is a standing-room only crowd and I have to stand the entire time.

  • Tuttle family offers thanks to community

    Editor:

    The outpouring love, kindness, and generosity of the Carroll County Community and surrounding counties has been phenomenal.   

    We consider ourselves to be very fortunate to live and work here. Our family has received visits, meals, calls, cards, emails, and messages too numerous to count.

    Even though we have lost Caroline, her memory lives on through the love we all had for her. Your prayers have given us strength as we search for peace while we travel down this road of grief.

    Thank you again,
