    I would like to thank all of the generous people who entered the seventh annual “Vision of  Sugar Plums” cooking contest held at McNeal’s during A Christmas Carroll in downtown Carrollton Saturday, Dec. 1. 

    There were 59 beautiful desserts that were turned in for a chance to win a new cooking range from McNeal’s. I could see the time and special attention the people put into their desserts.

  • 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.
