  • Students work in Butler Park praised

    Editor:

    After listening to last Tuesday’s presidential debate about the lack of jobs and training, it was delightful to read such a positive article in the Oct. 17 News-Democrat — Students volunteer to make improvements at the park.

    Hats off to Fran Dundon for coming up with the project and to all the instructors and students who gave of their time and talents to make improvements to our beautiful parks.

    What a great way to prepare students for future jobs and help our financially strapped parks system in the process.

    The Carroll County Sheriff’s Office recently had the pleasure of participating in fund-raisers for the Kentucky Sheriffs’ Ranch and the local Shop With A Cop Trail Ride.

  • Family thanks Ghent Fire, dispatch for quick response

    Editor:

    On Sept. 16, a lawn-mower fire destroyed most of the interior of our attached garage and its contents. My wife made the discovery of the fire and, immediately, called 911 for assistance. Had it not been for the selfless, quick action of all those rendering aid, as well as the person on the other end of the 911 call, our home also would have been destroyed along with its contents. Personal injury and/or loss of life was more importantly avoided as well.

    The 2012 Senior Event, “A Picnic at the Point,” last Thursday evening at Point Park was again enjoyed by many senior citizens from Carroll and surrounding counties. The planning committee works hard to provide this special evening for our seniors. Due to great local support, there is no cost for them to attend.
