  • Scouts to collect food Saturday

    Editor:

    The Scouting for Food pickup is Saturday, Nov. 19 at 9 a.m. This past Saturday, we had more than 90 people come out to participate with the first phase of the 2011 Scouting For Food effort. These volunteers distributed more than 1,500 flyers throughout the city and some outlying areas (i.e. Hwy. 36 to Hunters Ridge, M&T Road, Indians Hills) – a big thanks to everyone that came out to help. 

  • Grandparent program seeks support for 2011

    We would like to congratulate Brittany Belcher, who participated and completed the Susan G. Komen three day, 60 mile walk for a cure in Atlanta, Ga. on Oct. 21-23. We are so proud of her for her determination and passion for such a great cause.

    We appreciate and want to say thank you to everyone that supported Brittany through personal donations, played in our softball tournament, joined in the poker run, and bought T-shirts and to the businesses that helped her reach her required goal of $2,300.

  • Groups join for successful Haunted Train

    The Carroll County Tobacco Festival, Kentucky Kruizers, Worthville Fire Department, and Train Conductor Chris Pope pulled together to make the 2011 Haunted Train event a big success.

  • Leaf collection delayed, expected to begin soon

    Editor:

    The City of Carrollton ordered a new leaf machine in July of this year.  Delivery was supposed to be Oct. 1, but due to a shortage of 80 horsepower motors, delivery was moved to Oct. 18. 

    On Oct. 17 we received a call from the company that delivery was moved to Oct. 25.  The water pump on our old machine went out, and we sent it off through a local company for repair. They lost the pump and are trying to get a new one, but have not been successful.

    I wanted to thank the organizers of the Carroll County Tobacco Festival for a well organized event. Also thanks for giving local bands the opportunity to play.

    This event has gone on for many years, and from the participation it appears it will continue for many more.

    A special thanks to Greg and Daisy Hughes.
