  • Special Olympics thanks local support

     Editor:

    Carroll County Special Olympics has had a very successful 2011-12 sports season. In the fall we participated in bowling, both at regional and state level. In January we went to Perfect North Slopes for Winter Games, competing in alpine skiing and snowshoeing. Track season consisted of competition at Area 4 Games at St.X High School which cumulated with Summer Games at EKU, the first weekend of June.

  • Fourth of July celebration a success

     Editor:

    The first annual Fourth of July Festival is history and, from all indications, was a success.  Despite the heat, somewhere between four and five thousand people viewed the fireworks display.

    I want to thank everyone who helped me with this event.  I will not try to include the names of those to whom I owe a debt to, but if you helped, you know who you are and I hope you will be willing to help again next year.  Thanks and God Bless you.

  • Fothergill thanked for his photographs

     Editor:

    Carrollton Utilities staff would like to thank local photographer Jim Fothergill for sharing his time and photographs with us. All the photos in the Water Quality Reports that were recently mailed to our customers were taken by Jim.  

    This was yet another example of how generous Jim is with his time in supporting the community plus an example of his photography skills.  

  • Team Robbins extends thank-you message

    Editor:

    I would like to say congratulations to the Carroll County Relay for Life for another successful year.

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank the individual who have helped Team Robbins raise money for the Relay for Life/American Cancer Society.

  • Campground shouldn’t be for long stays

    Editor:

    I would like to express my opinion on long-term camping at the city’s Two Rivers RV Park.  I think it would be better to keep  the length of time at our new facility to short-term and not to let campers stay for six months at a time. We want it to stay like a campground, not a trailer park.

  • Body Recall program set for health center

     Editor:

    I am enjoying my “Body Recall” workouts at the Carroll County Health Department. Currently, there are five of us participating. Rachel Dermon does a wonderful job of leading our exercises. She has room for more if you think you could benefit from these low-impact exercises, all done from a chair. We meet at 11 a.m. on Monday-Wednesday-Friday for one hour. Come join us, we would love to have you.

  • Campground should continue to limit stays

     Editor:

    I would like to thank you for your recent editorial on the new RV Park in Carrollton. When the idea of an RV Park was brought up we were assured then and at public meetings later that there would be no long term bookings. One of the best things the city has done was to purchase and pull down the permanent trailers that blotted the landscape around our city park and we certainly do not want to go back there.

  • Main Street thanks those in River Sweep

     Editor:

  • Relay appreciates community support

     Editor:

    I would like to take this opportunity to say “thank you” to everyone who was involved in the 2012 Carroll County Relay for Life.  Without the support of those who came out and enjoyed the festivities, the teams, survivors, sponsors and committee members, this event would not have taken place.  Thank you goes out to the National Guard Armory, C.C. Downey and Kroger for their contribution to the Daddy Daughter Dance that was held in April. 

  • Fire department and community volunteers raise $4,800, reaching to meet goal of $7,500

     Editor:

    On behalf of the Carrollton Fire Department, I want to thank the community for its support of the 59th annual WHAS Crusade for Children.

    In 2012, we raised and turned in $4,800 – about $500 above our mark last year at this time.

    We still have time to reach our goal this year of $7,500. However at this point I would still like to acknowledge the contributions of our friends and local businesses that do so much for us year after year.
