  • Heroism of First Responders remembered

    Editor:

    On some anniversaries we celebrate. On others we reflect.

    The 14th anniversary of the attack on America and New York’s World Trade Center is one of the times for reflection. There is truly nothing to celebrate in the extraordinary tragedy of 9/11.

    As much as I would like to forget some of them, the images from that day will never be out of my mind, nor will the victims and their families.

  • Thanks extended for help with event

    Editor:

    I want to thank all the businesses and people that donated and helped on the Breast Cancer Benefit for Cindy Tingle.

    Thank you so much.

  • Sheriff thanks all who helped with trail ride

    Editor:

    The second annual Sheriff Jamie Kinman Scholarship Trail Ride, which took place on Saturday, Aug. 28, was a huge success! The proceeds of the trail ride will benefit local students who plan to attend college, in the form of an academic scholarship. We had around 70 riders this year and raised enough money to give three $1,000 scholarships. I look forward to rewarding students within our community with this money in hopes of allowing them financial relief while striving to follow their dreams.

  • Poker Run organizers offer gratitude

    Editor:

    “Christmas in August Poker Run” was a huge success Sunday August 16, 2015. We were able to donate $7,149.15

    We would like to say “Thanks” to all those involved with the Christmas in August Poker Run. Without businesses donating, people selling & buying raffle tickets, T-Shirts, 50/50 tickets and riders donating their time, there is no way WE could have raised over $7,000!

  • Stranger helps with money for gas in a time of need

    Editor:

    Tuesday morning at approximately 7 a.m. I  awoke to a  phone call from the State Police, asking me to pick up my sister’s children. My sister’s house had flooded, and her car was floating down the road.

  • Judge needs to get all the facts first

    Editor:

    Last week’s News-Democrat quoted “Special” Judge Karen A. Thomas. After reading the article I understand why she is “Special.” She doesn’t need all the facts or evidence to convict someone!

    Just like the wild west: You get your fair trial and then we hang you!

  • River Sweep supporters earn word of thanks

    Editor:

    The Carrollton Main Street Program and its River Sweep Committee held another successful cleanup Saturday along the banks of the Ohio and Kentucky rivers.

    We want to thank our major sponsors for making this event possible. North American Stainless and Dow Corning provide the funding to help us clean up our community each year, present awards for volunteers and poster winners and have a picnic lunch.
