• District extends thanks for school supplies


    Carroll County Schools would like to thank TIC-The Industrial Company, which is owned by Kiewit Corporation and was working as a contractor at Kentucky Utilities Ghent Station, for the generous donation of school supplies that were made to the district.  The donation was very much appreciated and will be put to good use for our students.  Again, thank you to TIC Corporation.

  • ‘End of Life’ program earns praise


    I would like to thank everyone involved in the program “End of Life.” Since I do not know many of the names, I hope this will do for a big thank you.

    The program was held at the First National Bank Friday, June 13. It answered questions about having a living will, including when you need it, when you should have it with you, how long is a valid document and who needs to sign it.

    So many of my questions were answered concerning organ donation. We need to know these things no matter what age we are. 

  • Family searches for Good Samaritan


    My family had a head on collision on Hwy. 36 in Carroll Co. on Feb. 26, 2014. The wreck was caused by an impaired driver. My daughter was stat flighted from the scene and me and my husband were flown from Carroll County Hospital. There was a lady that stopped to help my family. She drove an SUV, I believe it was black. Not sure what the make of it was. We are pretty sure her name was Mary. And I am pretty sure she was from Indiana.

  • Priest finds new home at church in Brooklyn


    I don’t know whether it is a good news or bad news. I was planning to return to Kentucky in June after my one year sabbatical leave. I had purchased the air ticket. Finally I had to submit my will to the will of God.

    I was appointed the Coordinator General of 124 Carmelite (CMI) priests in the U.S. and Canada and pastor of St. Anthony parish, Brooklyn, N.Y. I cancelled my air ticket.

    I had purchased earlier and purchased a new ticket to New York on May 29. I will arrive in New York on May 30.
