  • Scouting for Food’s collections set record

    Editor:

    Thanks to the citizens of Carrollton and Carroll County for your contributions to the 2012 Scouting For Food campaign. 

    Once the dust settled on Saturday afternoon, the tally was 19,507 items collected; this is a substantial increase over last year’s 16,011 items and a new record.

    A special thanks to the employees at the Kentucky Utilities-Ghent power station for their donation of nearly 3,000 items and we very much appreciate your contribution.

    On behalf of the Carroll County Ministerial Association, Family Ties representatives and Head Start representatives, I am pleased to update the community on the progress of our disbursal of donations to the families of the bus wreck.

  • 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,

  • 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.

    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.
