  • Police chief, sheriff thank sponsors, supporters of recent fund-raisers

    Editor:

    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.

    A golf scramble was held Sept. 10 to generate funds for the Kentucky Sheriffs’ Ranch, which offers underprivileged children an opportunity to spend a week at summer camp and participate in a number of fun activities.

  • 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.

  • Exercise your right to vote Nov. 6

    The 2012 General Election is more than just a decision between two candidates. This election will determine the kind of government we will have and the kind of nation our children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren will inherit from us.

  • County should have been at state fair

    Editor:

    On a recent trip to the Kentucky State Fair, I was very disappointed to find out that the county I have lived in for 30-plus years wasn’t represented in the Pride of the Counties.  

    Carroll County is supposed to be a growing community with a brand new RV Park. We also have a lot going for our county, such as festivals, local businesses, industry and a state park that should have been showcased.
