  • Bunny’s death leaves woman heartbroken

    Editor:

    At the fair this year, you had a chance to pay to play to win a rabbit — a real, live bunny. I played June 11; it took me $5 from my boyfriend, a bucket of balls and luck to win, and I did. I ran over to the side of the fence where they were being kept.

  • Thanks sent to many for a successful fair

    Editor:

    As new members of the Carroll County Fair Board, Christin Michelle Stoops and I would like to take this opportunity to thank some individuals who helped make our 2011 county fair a huge success.

    First of all, to every participant and contestant who entered any one of our events, from the derbies to the pageants, we are thankful to all that participated.

    All of the food collected was donated to the food pantry located at St. John’s Catholic Church. It will go to help local families.

    Also, thank you to all those who donated food to the drive.

  • Mayor thanks all those involved in city cleanup

    Editor:

    I wish to thank the Rumpke Family and the employees of Rumpke Waste Management for co-sponsoring the first annual Carrollton Cleanup Day. I also want to thank Mike Humphrey, Jailer, and the inmates for their assistance as well as the Carrollton Public Works employees. 

    Even though not as many citizens took advantage of the opportunity to discard unwanted articles as I had hoped for, there was enough participation to merit another day next year.

  • CCHS senior class gets praise for its efforts

    Editor:

    I cannot say thank you in enough ways to the senior class of 2011. What was done at Honors Day for Noah, I will never forget. This shows respect in so many different ways. Special education kids can teach us all some important life lessons. This is a victory for all past, present and future special education kids.

  • Animal Support in need of foster homes

    Editor:

    Foster homes for animals are desperately needed. Every dog that is picked up or dropped off at our local shelter has no chance of getting out alive, unless the executive director of Carroll County Animal Support, Tammie Crawford, rescues them. She has limited space at her home and in her kennels and once she is full and cannot pull any more from the shelter, those left there are euthanized.
