    I wanted to thank the organizers of the Carroll County Tobacco Festival for a well organized event. Also thanks for giving local bands the opportunity to play.

    This event has gone on for many years, and from the participation it appears it will continue for many more.

    A special thanks to Greg and Daisy Hughes.

  • Railroad needs to clean up in Worthville

    Editor:

    We are truly blessed to live in a geographical area that has three rivers, an interstate highway and railroad. This has enabled the county to draw several internationally known industries and businesses to this area producing numerous jobs for local people and greatly increasing the revenue for Carroll and surrounding counties. For this I am grateful.
