  • Priest finds new home at church in Brooklyn

    Editor:

    I don’t know whether it is a good news or bad news. I was planning to return to Kentucky in June after my one year sabbatical leave. I had purchased the air ticket. Finally I had to submit my will to the will of God.

    I was appointed the Coordinator General of 124 Carmelite (CMI) priests in the U.S. and Canada and pastor of St. Anthony parish, Brooklyn, N.Y. I cancelled my air ticket.

    I had purchased earlier and purchased a new ticket to New York on May 29. I will arrive in New York on May 30.

    I would like to thank those individuals that made our second annual Relay for Life 5K a success. Thank you to Wal-Mart for donating bananas to the runners and walkers after the event and to Verizon Wireless of Carrollton and manager Josh McIntyre for providing the “water break” at the halfway point. Special thanks to the Carroll County Health Department for timing the race with their new state of the art equipment and to the American Cancer Society for providing medals to every participant.

  • Reader appreciates story on Matson, CAC

    Editor:

    Thank you so much for your article on Christian Academy of Carrollton and Katie Matson. As a parent of a child that attends CAC, I can say with full knowledge that Mrs. Matson and CAC are truly a blessing from God, to have right here in our community. Anyone who hasn’t had the chance to meet the wonderful principal and her staff, it would be well worth the time to do so.

    Thanks again for acknowledging her and the great accomplishments of her 25 years of service to our community.

  • People should show respect for animals

    Editor: 

    What does it say when someone puts antifreeze out for cats to drink, hoping to “take care of” the cats outside? Many of these are someone’s pets. 

    Another individual or group of individuals threw a nest full of ready to hatch goose eggs into my neighborhood pond. I find this horrifyingly cruel.
