  • 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.

  • Firefighters to take part in Crusade for Children June 1-5

    Editor:

    This community has always been very supportive of the WHAS Crusade for Children. As a member of the Carrollton Fire Department, I want to thank you for your past support of the Crusade and, again, appeal to you for your continued support of this great cause as Crusade kickoff is upon us.

    Since 1956 when the first fire department in Kentucky joined forces with WHAS to pledge their support to disabled children, fire departments now raise approximately fifty percent of donations pledged each year in Kentuckiana.

    The Carroll County Chamber of Commerce would like to thank the many sponsors, volunteers, and players who made our annual golf scramble a success. Also, congratulations to our winning teams. There was a two-way tie for first place — Brad McNeal’s team and Jimmy Hayes’s team.    

  • Club holds ninth show: attracts more participation

    Editor:

    On May 6, 7 and 8, the Pioneer Power Tractor Club held its ninth annual tractor show in Carrollton. Despite the weather and rain showers over the weekend, we had a great crowd of spectators and exhibitors.

    We had about 170 pieces of equipment on display and in demonstrations. We had exhibitors from as far away as Liberty, Ky. and spectators from as far as LaPorte, Ind. attend the show. Several vendors were there selling everything from buffalo burgers to handmade local crafts.

  • Group not accepting pets from owners

    Editor:

    Eight years ago Phyllis Codling McLaughlin and I started Carroll County Animal Support with the idea to help the homeless and helpless dogs at our local animal shelter. And over the years we have saved hundreds from being euthanized. We get no funding from local, state or federal agencies; we get our funds through fundraising, donations from local industries and some wonderful citizens. We do not have a physical shelter but foster the dogs mostly in my home and boarding kennel and some other foster homes.

  • Food drive aids many

    Editor:

  • 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.”
