  • Neighbors, police come to couple’s aid

    Editor:

    I want to extend my gratification to the residents of Carrollton especially Carl and Katie Walters, Cassie and Sam Proctor and Retha Simmones.

    On Monday night, May 2, my boyfriend and I were getting ready for bed. I went to my front door and looked out. Our streetlight was out, which was odd. I shut the door and locked it and said, “Well, it’s a good night for some mischief.”

  • Support helped make pageant a success

    Editor:

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank a number of individuals who helped make the Relay for Life Pageants 2011 a great success. With everyone’s help, “Team Robbins” raised a total of $2,667 to help raise awareness and fight for a cure for Relay for Life.

  • Group appreciates support for animals week

    Editor:

    On behalf of the Carroll County Animal Support group, I would like to thank those who participated in the third Annual Kentucky Week of the Animals.  We had a full week of activities.  We received acknowledgement from the state organization for being the group in the participating 15 states who held an activity each day of animal week.

  • Bullying at school must be addressed

    Editor:

    I am writing about a concern for the bullying that occurs in our schools. My 11-year-old daughter was recently a victim of a serious offense that occurred on the bus. My little girl has been being bullied by the same little boy for the last three years.

  • Basketball camp raised funds for Relay for Life team

    Editor:

    Carrollton Federal Bank sponsored Hoop Shooters basketball camp and Little Rookies basketball tournament during spring break.

    The event was held at the Kathryn Winn Primary School. There were 25 children who attended the camp and four teams that participated in the tourney.

  • Show support for hydro power project

    Editor:

    We are writing in reference to the headline article in the April 6 News-Democrat about the hydro electric project at Lock No. 1 on the Kentucky River. As Gary Burbank would say, “Wake up, America!” This is green power. This is very much a project we should be supporting. It would be great to capture every bit of mechanical energy possible from all our dams. We would get power and not consume any of our earth’s natural resources, with no pollution, and affect the community very little.

  • April brings Autism Awareness month

    Editor,

    It is that time of the year again. Time for my Autism Fundraiser. It is planned for Sunday, April 10, 2011, at First Baptist Church in Carrollton. I plan to start at 12:15 p.m. in our Fellowship Hall.

    A spaghetti lunch will be served that includes spaghetti, garlic bread, salad, brownies and a drink. Prices are $5 for 11 years old and above, and $3 for children under 10 years old.

  • Family suffers the loss of two pets to traffic

    Editor:

    My 7-year-old daughter and 5-year-old son lost two cats due to people running over them within a three month frame.

    My daughter was in the driveway when the second cat got hit. She said it crawled to hide under one of our vehicles. She went over to it and moved Pumpkin, her family pet, to it’s bed on the porch.

    She watched it suffer and die within minutes. My kids were sad and crying for the second time.

  • Dow Corning donated materials for new roof

    Editor:

    I am writing this letter from the administration and the board of directors of Carroll County Memorial Hospital to recognize the donation of materials by Dow Corning Corporation for our capital roofing project.

  • CCAS works hard to help local animals

    Editor:

    I am writing as a reminder that we are still working very hard in Carroll County for the homeless, abused and neglected animals. The week of April 9-17 is “Kentucky Week of the Animals.” We have put together a wonderful week of events (see calendar in this paper).
