  • Kentucky facing diabetes epidemic

    Editor:

    Kentucky is facing a diabetes epidemic. It is estimated that more than 600,000 Kentuckians have diabetes and 11 million people have prediabetes. One of the best ways to attack the diabetes epidemic is prevent it.

  • Hornback supports less ethics training

    Editor:

    Our State Senator, Paul Hornback, co-sponsored SB152 which says exactly this: Amend KRS 6.716 to reduce the ethics training time requirement for members of the General Assembly from three hours to 30 minutes and remove CLE eligibility; repeal KRS 7.101 requiring sexual and workplace harassment training for General Assembly members.

    That’s right, Sen. Hornback wants to eliminate sexual harassment training for legislators and reduce the total ethics training time to just half an hour.

  • Residents want mess at Hwy. 227 cleaned up

    It is disgusting that the residents of Carroll County must endure driving by properties that distort the definition of pride into ugly visions of shame. It even causes most residents to hang their head in shame when they realize that the first, and often lasting, impression of visitors to our county can be seen as they drive down the exit ramp off I-71.

  • Hicks credited for his work as coach

    Dear Editor:

    It takes a very special person to be dedicated to coaching a team of girls from the time they were in first grade through their sixth-grade year. The roster of seven girls eventually grew to 10, and Coach Brandon Hicks has been there from the first dribble. Coach Hick’s, or just “Brandon,” as the girls like to call him has managed to coach not only his daughter’s CCJP basketball team for six years but simultaneously his son’s basketball team as well.

  • Canadian couple enjoys trip to Carrollton

    Editor:

    My husband and I made our first visit to the town of Carrollton on Sunday, Jan. 9. We drove around enjoying this quiet old town, nice riverfront park, and the quirky driftwood home that caught my eye.

    We stopped for breakfast at Welch’s Riverside Restaurant and were greeted by the staff, served breakfast and enjoyed the river view. A friendly local answered our questions about the area, river and industries. We invited this local ambassador to join us while we visited and ate.

  • Franklin thanks community for help

    Editor:

    I just wanted to take a quick moment of time to let some people in the community know that they are so appreciated!

    During the holiday season I was able to participate in a few initiatives where the main goal was to ensure a family’s time during Christmas was happy and plentiful.

  • Animal shelter needs to be operated properly

    Editor:

    This letter is in response to the article in last week’s paper (Dec. 8, 2016) regarding Carroll Co. Animal Support.

    First, Mr. Bowling mentioned that the last time CCAS attended a Fiscal Court meeting was in 2015. Let me say this, why should we continue to go when they never do anything? Also we have met with Judge Westrick and Mr. Bowling with our concerns. We have even had Mr. Bowling meet us at the shelter to discuss different issues.
