  • Show support for the clean energy bill

    The Clean Energy Opportunity Act (HB167) is currently being considered by the Kentucky House of Representatives during the General Assembly.

    Girl Scout Troop No. 337 would like to thank everyone involved in welcoming us to “A Christmas Carroll.”  Not only was our troop very successful, our girls and parents alike enjoyed themselves and we were profitable for our troop.

  • Donations make stone wall project a reality

    Editor:

    On behalf of the Port William Historical Society, many thanks to all of those business and people who helped us with our latest building project. As a result of their contributions the cemetery at Masterson House will be esthetically improved by the addition of the period-appropriate dry-laid stone wall. Perhaps more importantly, the graves within the cemetery will be better protected from Hwy. 42, which is now so close after its expansion. All of us who live and work in Carroll County can take pride in this preservation of local heritage.
