  • 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.

  • Stoops thanks everyone for support in Miss Ky. pageant

    Last month I competed in the Miss Kentucky USA pageant representing Carroll County. Although I did not walk away with the crown, I had a phenomenal experience. I spent over six months preparing for the pageant, which included working

    closely with those in my community. During those six months I received a major outpouring of support from my community, whether it was in Facebook well wishes, sponsorships or kind words, I want Carroll County residents to know that theydid not go unnoticed.
