  • Set out donations Saturday for Scouting For Food drive

    Editor:

    Saturday, Nov 21, is the “big day” for 2015 Scouting For Food drive. Dozens of volunteers will be hitting the same routes as they did the previous Saturday when they put out reminder fliers – this time picking up food that folks have graciously donated. We expect to be out by 9 a.m., so please be sure to have your donations out by then, positioned in a highly visible location so that our young volunteers can clearly see them.

  • Veteran disappointed in local restaurants

    Editor:

    To all the individuals and businesses in Carroll County who did anything at all to honor a veteran on this Veteran’s Day, I would like to say thank you.

  • Thanks to sheriff’s offices, sponsors of clay shoot

    Editor:

    We send our heartfelt thanks to Carroll County Sheriff Jamie Kinman, Owen County Sheriff Mark Bess, Gallatin County Sheriff Josh Neale, and the Carroll, Owen and Gallatin county sheriff’s offices for hosting the first ever Owen, Carroll, Gallatin County Sheriffs’ Charity Sporting Clay Shoot to benefit the Kentucky Sheriffs’ Boys and Girls Ranch on Saturday, Sept. 12. Their support of this event ensures we continue to reach Kentucky’s youth in a positive manner.

  • Volunteers needed for Scouting for Food

    Editor:

    It’s time for the 2015 Scouting for Food campaign to get underway.  Local Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts, Girl Scouts and a host of others representing various groups will be hitting the streets this Saturday, Nov. 14, to distribute approximately 1,800 fliers to the homes in Carrollton – in anticipation of food collection the following Saturday, Nov. 21.

    We will be meeting at 9 a.m. at the new Food Pantry location, 517 Seventh Street (at the corner of Seventh and Polk streets, commonly referred to as “old Kentucky Ladder building”).

  • Resident thanks Public Works for efforts

    Editor:
    When taking walks on these beautiful autumn days, one appreciates the efforts of the Carrollton Public Works Department to make life here in our city so good. The river walk is meticulously maintained even after the floods earlier this year. The public areas in the flood plain are always kept mowed and trimmed. The RV park is now the “go to” place for people from all over the country as evidenced by the variety of license plates seen there. It is preferred over other parks for its amenities and praised for the landscaping

  • Department of Parks declares war on Christmas

    Editor:

    Is this nation that prints “In God We Trust” on its currency at war with Christmas? Sure sounds like it to me. Are Christians who are exercising our First Amendment Rights supposed to hide in shame for fear we will “offend” someone? It sure sounds like that is what our government is trying to make us do. Is political correctness more important than serving our God? Apparently the Kentucky Department of Parks thinks so. 

  • Get out the vote in the 2015 General Election

    Editor:

    Hundreds of thousands of young Americans are serving our military to preserve our way of life, and yet fewer and fewer of our citizens are participating in our democracy. Nov. 3 is General Election Day when Kentuckians will be selecting candidates for governor, commissioner of agriculture and other constitutional officers. Members of Carroll County Farm Bureau hope every voter will make their voices heard by casting informed votes for our government leaders.

  • Gillespie: Open heart to gay community

    Editor:

    The world is a constantly changing place, and rural communities have historically been slowest to catch up.

  • Elect politicians who will stand up for Christian faith

    Editor:

    I am not a liberal/progressive Democrat. I’m not a Republican. My party is the Watchmen Party. Read Ezekiel chapter 33 in the Bible.

    It’s not about what party you’re in. If you are a godly man or woman, one day you will stand before the Lord Jesus and you will have to give an account of what you do or say. We need to put men or women in office/position who will stand up for our Christian faith.
