  • Poker Run raises funds for Christmas

    Editor:

    We would like to say “thank you” to everyone who donated to the Christmas in August Poker Run.

    Your donations help generate money through our raffle and silent auction. We truly appreciate all the businesses who were able to help us. I would list everyone individually but there are more than 100.

  • Taxpayer unhappy with paving work

    Editor:

    As taxpayers sometimes we wonder where our money is spent. I saw it used Thursday on Harley Drive. They finally paved the street after several years. But it was a problem and no one seemed to want to fix it. The company the city hired to do the work piled all the dirt and gravel in my driveway. I asked the paving company who was going to fix it and they said they were. But after paving the street, they left, leaving the clean up for me.

  • New policy concerns rescue squad officers

    Editor:

    This article is being written as a direct rebuttal to the allegations brought against the rescue squad and its members.

    These allegations are not only untrue but also a direct attack against the squad and its members. If there is proof that there have been recent accidents involving the rescue squad and their privately owned vehicles, while responding to incidents it needs to be brought forth to the Board of Directors of Carroll County Rescue.

  • Fiscal Court should support sheriff's office

    Editor:

    I attended two “Get to know the Candidates” forums before the election. When asked what the biggest problem facing Carroll County, most candidates  replied: “The drug problem”; “We have to fix the drug problem”; or “We need to get a handle on the drug problem.”

  • Kudos offered to staff at county hospital

    Editor:

    I wish to give a “hats off” to the staff at Carroll County Memorial Hospital.

    My husband, Bob Wilson, had to be admitted for a couple days. We were very pleased with his care and the family’s treatment.

    Thank you to the staff at CCMH. You were very professional and competent.

  • Champions ‘thank you’ for help at town hall meetings

    Editor:
    Champions for a Drug Free Carroll County would like to take a moment to thank everyone that came out to the Worthville and Sanders Town Hall meetings in July. We wouldn’t be successful without all of you and your hard work.

  • Community needs more sheriff’s deputies

    Editor:
    The Fiscal Court needs a plan of action to show how another sheriff would benefit the community?
    Just read the newspaper or watch the television news to know of the drug and criminal activity increasing in Carroll County. Go to your local city/commission meetings and hear the frustrations of the citizens trying to deal with these situations.

  • Parks commissioner responds to concerns

    (Editor’s note: This letter was in response to one published last week from Dan Carraco and Carol Teach.)

    Editor:

    Thank you for your letter regarding harvesting operations at General Butler State Resort Park and your concern for the condition of the park. Every decision that is made regarding the park is made in an effort to protect and enhance the natural environment and our guest experience.

  • Carroll County Special Olympics says ‘thanks’

    Editor:

    Our athletic year for Carroll County Special Olympics, fall 2013-summer 2014, was again a very successful year.

    Our bowling season began in late August 2013 with practices weekly at Strikers in Vevay. We owe a very big thank you to Bruce, for opening up for the hours we needed. For our area competition, we had 11 athletes, and it took place in late October in Louisville, but alas, the State Games were cancelled due to a bad snowstorm, which struck the region Dec. 6. Everyone was disappointed.
