  • Arkema helps former workers, ALS cause

    Editor:

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank Arkema Carrollton Plant and its employees for their support for my family.  I was employed at this company for more than 25 years before I left to work home health full time.  My brother-in-law was diagnosed with ALS three years ago and my family has been very active in fundraising for this non-profit organization to search for a cure, buy equipment and provide support for people affected by this terrible disease.

  • Champions event proved a big success

    Editor:

    On Friday, April 20, Champions for a Drug Free Carroll County along with its community partners held a “Stand Up for Carroll County Kids” event on the courthouse lawn. That evening, more than 200 people gathered together for an evening of fun, entertainment, along with a serious message. April is Child Abuse Awareness Month. Our speaker for the evening, Leigh Ann Roberts, said it best when she stated that it should be Child Abuse Action Month.

  • 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.
