  • Middle school band concert inspires parent

    Editor:

    Hats off to Mr. Hash, Mr. Brawner and all of the students that performed at the 7th and 8th grade middle school band concert Thursday, May 15 – you all did a phenomenal job!

  • Thanks extended to 5K participants

    Editor:

    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. 

  • Resident offers ideas to improve county

    Editor:

    I’m no genius, but how can we address the drug problem with just three deputies? Doesn’t fiscal court have funds to support more officers? Why can’t we have a K-9 unit? Seems like a good idea would be to use it to randomly patrol the inside and outside of our schools. 

    I guess anyone who owns a lot of property in our city and county would not want a tax increase, even if it would bring in the funds needed to help with the problems facing our communities.

  • Hospital earns praise for quick treatment

     Editor:

    On the morning of April 9, I woke up for work and had abdominal pain that led to a visit to the Carroll County Hospital emergency room. Upon arrival I was promptly taken to a room and evaluated. The testing began with x-rays then a C.T. scan, which showed the need for surgery.

    Within no time at all the procedure was over and I was in a room to recover overnight.

  • Awareness event gets broad local support

    Editor:
