  • Addicts must choose to change their life

    Editor:

    We know there is a need to change the direction of substance abuse and drug addiction in our community. What can Life In Carrollton do to change our community? Why should you support Life In Carrollton?

    I was an addict for eight years and an alcoholic for 17 years. I have certainly lived the lifestyle of the addict.

  • Teen night event proves successful

    Editor:

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank a handful of great people that helped make our first ever “Teen Night” a success.

    Sponsored by the Carroll County Health Department, Champions for a Drug Free Carroll County and Haven of Hope Pregnancy Services, Maria Breeden and I teamed up to bring this fun night a reality for young ladies ages 12-18.

  • Republicans to hold Saturday caucus

    Editor:

    Saturday, March 5, is a great day in the Commonwealth of Kentucky. The first ever caucus will be held in Kentucky and Carroll County registered Republicans will be voting at Carroll County High School, from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.

  • Republicans need to cast votes at caucus

    Editor:

    Carroll County Republicans, this Saturday, March 5 is the day of the Kentucky Republican presidential caucus.  There has been a lot in the news about Iowa, New Hampshire and other states voting in their caucus. We understand that many Republican voters are unaware that Kentucky, too, will hold a caucus and that Carroll County Republicans will have a chance to participate. 

  • Republican presidential caucus March 5

    Editor:

    To Carroll County Republicans:

    If you were registered as a Republican before Jan. 1, 2016, you are eligible to vote in the statewide Republican presidential caucus, Saturday, March 5, from 10 a.m.- 4 p.m. at the Carroll County High School. This is the first caucus Kentucky has ever had, and it is the first time Kentucky has been relevant in selecting a presidential candidate. 

    This caucus will be conducted like a primary, in that you can come in and vote and leave if you choose. 

  • CAC prepared children to be lifelong learners

    Editor:

  • Rec center, better drug education needed

    Editor:

    Please help our children!

    A few years ago we tried to bring awareness to our community about the heroin epidemic and ways we could try to fight it. Though we took ideas to the city council, they said the police were working on it and they had Champions. At that time most thought Champions was for kids only. If an addict does still manage to have a job, they would hardly be able to make their meetings as they are in the middle of the day. And our sheriff had just said in a newscast he needed everyone’s help.

  • Corley thanks hospital for care received

    Editor:

  • Be courteous and respectful in 2016

    Editor:

    New Year’s Resolution. Have you ever walked into a store [and] passed a person walking with a walker or in a wheelchair? Did you take the time to hold the door open, offer a smile or encouragement?

    A couple of weeks ago my husband and I were in Wal-Mart, when a young girl in a wheelchair was being pushed by her dad, passed me and said you should smile. Boy, was she right. We should count our blessings each day and smile.

  • Legion hosted chili cook off, toy run Nov. 7

    Editor:

    On Nov. 7, 2015, the American Legion Auxiliary 41, hosted a chili cook off and toy run for veterans and children’s Christmas. Throughout the months of November and December we received donations from members of the community. We could not have made this event possible without the support of our American Legion Post 41 and the commander Raymond Meadows, the community, and many individuals.
