  • Historical president hopes to breathe ‘new life’ in the organization

    Editor:

    As the newly-elected president of the Port William Historical Society, I am hoping to breathe new life into the half-century-old organization through the creation of more educational and dynamic meetings, the creation of new monthly community events and the expansion of current ones, historic-themed field trips that will be open to all members of the community, scheduled summer house tours and the integration and development of a junior historical society.

  • Friends, prayers help in battle with cancer

    Editor:

    Since I was diagnosed with prostrate cancer several months ago, this has truly been a wonderful experience for me.

    I told Father Davy last month that the prayers and good will I have received has really made this problem a joy.

  • New expo focuses on youth programs

    Editor:

    Carroll County is at a pivotal point in our history. We have more possible growth and potential than ever. However, that growth and potential will never be realized unless we act now to help tomorrow’s generation.

    Drugs, abuse and simple apathy threaten the success of our county. It has become evident to me that in order to make our community everything that it can be, it is going to take a community-wide effort.

  • Families appreciate help after tornado

    We would like to thank all our friends and neighbors who came to our homes and gave their time and energy helping us clean up our property that was demolished by the tornado.

  • Attack on women prompts outrage

    Editor:

    Having gone through puberty with a nearly blemish-free complexion, I was horrified at age 21 to find myself with a horrific case of what I guess was acne.  I was just out of college and teaching ninth grade students in East Baltimore, Md., and for a country girl, it was quite a challenge.

  • Drivers who hit animals should stop, tell owners

    Editor:

    My wife and I would like to thank the lady  who stopped and let us know that our dog had been hit by a car. Weezer was a 14-year-old dog with hearing and sight issues. 

    Her venture into Hwy. 55 cost her her life. I am dismayed that the person that struck her did not stop, as is the case with many people who hit animals. The people who stopped allowed me to bury her as a dog and not as a heap of roadkill. Again our thanks to her and shame on those that continued on as if it didn’t matter.

  • Milton firefighters seek donations, help

    Editor:

    On March 2, Milton Fire  and Rescue Station No. 2 in Milton was hit by an EF-3 tornado. We lost the station, a 1983 Spartan fire engine, a mobile fish fry trailer, some gear, radios and pagers, and some other items that were stored at this station. Our fire department is all volunteer and relies on donations only since we are not a taxing department.   

  • CCAS thanks supporters for helping with event

    Editor:

    I am writing to thank many great people who made the Nelda Vannarsdall Chili Supper a huge success. The annual event was affectionately named after Nelda  who was not with us this year to assist.
