• Owen resident supports McConnell for Congress


    In the interest of doing what is best for Kentucky and the nation, I request your vote for Mitch McConnell.  I ask that you consider the following:

    Experience— real experience in the Congressional Legislative process — does count.  Clearly Mitch has the overwhelming advantage over Alison’s documented lack of relevant experience.

    It is important that elected officials in Washington have our interest at heart and not their own. 

  • Store works to help local families in need


    I would like to take the time to personally thank the community for all the wonderful support and donations we receive at “Our Little Thrift Store,” located next to Traderbakers on Hwy. 227. It has always been a dream to some day open a business of my own and to also be able to help by giving back to those who need a helping hand. Our Little Thrift Store has provided the opportunity to do so in so many different ways.

  • Grant Co. resident supports Threlkeld


    I am writing this letter to ask the people in this county to elect John Brent Threlkeld to the office of Circuit Court Judge. In the seven years I have known him, he has grown into a very trusted friend, and I know he is the best person for this job.

  • Support the EPA’s efforts to protect the Clean Water Act


    In Kentucky, we are blessed with lots of fresh water.

    But much of that water is at risk. The Clean Water Act, intended to protect our waterways from pollution, is under attack from industry groups, which desire to pollute, cover or destroy critical waterways.

  • Retired teachers to collect for food pantry


    Retired Teachers’ week will be Oct. 19-25. The purpose of the week is to promote awareness of how retired educators give back to the community.

    Each year, the Kentucky Retired Teachers’ Association collects volunteer hours from each local association. For the 2013 year, CCRTA reported a total of 877 volunteer hours. The actual number was probably higher because not everyone reports their hours.

  • Perry Park resident supports McConnell for Senate

  • Sheriff thanks everyone for making trail ride a success


  • Adkins asks voters to support Knight


    To the voters of the 15th Circuit, Grant,  Owen and Carroll counties: I wish to thank all of you who voted for me in the May Primary election for Circuit Judge. I am honored and grateful for your support. My family and I worked hard, and a special thanks to my daughters, Klaire, Alyssa, Darcy and Lauren, for walking so many miles and knocking on all those doors.

  • Thanks for supporting Woofstock


    Carroll County Animal Support was started 11-and-a-half years ago with a handful of people who saw a need to help the unwanted, homeless and abused animals in our community.

    At that time, we only hoped to be where we are today and to see all the wonderful people who came to our first Woofstock event at General Butler State Resort Park. Their support was, just in a word, fantastic.

    There is no way topersonally thank everyone who helped at Woofstock, but we want to try.
