  • Classes of 1964-65 to hold reunion

    Editor:

  • Speakers for Champions must be OK’d

    Editor:

    I want to take this opportunity to inform those of you that may be somewhat confused on how programs in Carroll County Schools work. I’ve been confronted by different individuals throughout the community on what alcohol or drug awareness/education programs should be brought into our schools. Although [I am] Champions for a Drug Free Carroll County Coordinator, I realize each program we do must be approved by our community coalition and Carroll County School Board. This is according to school board policy and in our federal Drug Free Communities grant.

  • Trolley for city should be funded

    Editor:

    I was shocked, saddened and dumbfounded to see the Carrollton City Council had taken the Carrollton trolley out of the budget.

    The council and tourism should have fought for and had the trolley on the way to running in order to serve the town and our visitors.

  • Help save a life by fostering a dog

    Editor:

    We have a “code red” of the dog world.  We have 10  medium to large dogs that need foster homes immediately.

    They will be leaving in 10-14 days to rescues that have committed to taking them; only if we can get them out of the shelter by this Friday evening.

    Our shelter in Carroll County is full and these 10 furry friends’ time is up.

    We are asking for some help from this community to help save our furry friends.

    The vet will be called this Saturday morning, which means they will be euthanized.

  • Franklin praised for drug town meeting

    Editor:

    A person made a comment that Hayley Franklin has not used drugs, so how can she talk about it at Champions For A Drug Free Carroll County. And they did not live in the county.

    They are wrong. Hayley does a great job. People shouldn’t criticize someone who works so hard.

    Thank you Hayley for the job you do and everybody that works with you.

    I lost my daughter, Mona, to drugs. People tell me to get over her. You never do get over the loss of a child or grandchild.

  • Friendly folks come to motorist’s aid

    Editor:

    I am from Cincinnati and I was taking my son for an overnight visit at Hanover College.

    We got off at the Carrollton exit and started having car trouble. We made it to the Marathon station. Our car would not go forward. I did not know what to do. We didn’t know anyone and the college was too far to call for help. We had to move the car somewhere else in the parking lot.

  • Fund established to put a memorial bench

    Editor:

    The community was so caring about the death of Michael Beach on Oct. 8, 2013. We are proud to have the opportunity, with Hometown Pizza’s generous approval, to place a bench in Michael Beach’s memory at the accident site as a memorial and to serve as a reminder of what could happen with careless driving.

    An account has been started at First National Bank of Carrollton by me for the Michael Beach’s Memorial Bench Fund. Any donations can be accepted by FNB.

    family of Michael Beach

  • Author was right about technology

    Editor:

    I do not know Kathryn Gillespie, but I wish to commend her for last week’s thought-provoking article on American society’s excessive use of technology. I agree with much that she had to say.

    Having, in the past, been employed in the data processing field and also having a tendency toward “internet addiction,” I have thought much on this topic.

  • Family appreciates those who serve

    Editor:

    This letter is in dedication to all of our community firefighters, policemen and women, EMTs and first responders.

    We think, in general, people, and including ourselves, have taken these very special and much needed people and their service to our community for granted.
