  • Labels and extreme politics harm nation

    Editor:


     A Farewell to Arms? Please....


    I have long felt that a two party democracy has been crippling progress for America’s future for several decades now. Some call it necessary as a system of checks and balances, but I disagree.


    It has gone from Democrats and Republicans to the catch labels “right-wing Conservatives” and “liberal nut jobs” and now finally to “Tea Partiers” and “communists.”

  • Local group aids neglected animals

    Editor:


    I am writing to pay tribute to the Carroll County Animal Support Group here in our town (not to be confused with the county run shelter).


    I have been an animal lover my whole life. But for many years I just hid my head in the sand so I didn’t have to feel the pain when I saw animal neglect and/or abuse. Being a home visiting school nurse and a home health nurse for many years in the past, I have seen atrocities to animals (and to children for that matter) that would keep me awake at night.

  • McMurry earns praise from former neighbor

    Editor:
    I read with great interest your reporting of Carrollton’s’ new mayor, Gene McMurry. My family and I were fortunate enough to have lived in Carrollton for about 15 years. We moved about four years ago and have fond memories of Gene and Sue McMurry. We were also fortunate enough to have lived just two houses down from Gene and Sue and couldn’t have asked for better neighbors or friends.

  • Couple appreciates award for decorating home

    Editor:
    We would like to thank The News-Democrat for awarding us the 2010 Carroll County Christmas Décor Contest Winners. We appreciate the pictures and article regarding our holiday display and Santa’s arrival. Many people stopped by due to reading/seeing this in the paper. We hope that you will continue to have this as an annual event to highlight the community’s decorations that help people to get into the Christmas spirit.

  • CCAS plans annual chili supper Feb. 26

    Editor:
    It’s that time of year again. Carroll County Animal Support members are working to plan and prepare for our third annual Chili Supper fundraiser.
    As in the past, we will have a silent auction, a 50/50 drawing and a bake sale. And, of course, we will have an assortment of yummy, homemade chili, sandwiches and desserts.

  • Free program helps us walk away the pounds

    Editor:
    Has everyone noticed that many of the advertisements, especially since Christmas, have been geared toward weight loss and getting fit?
    These are two of the most common resolutions made each New Year and promptly broken before Valentine’s Day.

  • Residents offer thanks for holiday helpers

    Editor:
    The residents and staff at Carrollton Manor would like to thank the following for giving us such a wonderful and joyous Christmas: Hair Studio, Carrollton United Methodist Church, Arkema Inc., American Legion, Open Door Baptist Church, Ten Mile Association, Auto Collision, The White family, Senior Citizens of Northern Kentucky, Carrollton Church of Christ, the Colbert family and Continuum Care Pharmacy.
    If we have forgotten to mention anyone, we are sorry and thank you also. We would also like to wish everyone a Happy New Year.

  • Christmas wreath winner announced

    Editor:

    The second Christmas wreath decorating contest and silent auction was held by Carrollton Federal Bank Dec. 10 in conjunction with an open house. The proceeds from the silent auction went to the Meals on Wheels Program. All of the wreaths submitted for the contest displayed imagination and creativity. This was evident by the close race for first place with only one vote difference between first and second place.  It was our honor to display the wreaths in our lobby.  They were beautifully decorated and received many compliments by the public. 

  • Readers praise on Shop with a Cop

    Editor:

    What an uplifting story in The News-Democrat....Shop with a Cop, to aid 124 children this Christmas!

    We can only imagine how the almost 700 children and their families have been impacted by this wonderful program over the last 10 years.

    Congratulations and God Bless each and every person that’s involved with Shop With a Cop! Just another reason we are proud to call Carrollton our home!

    Sincerely,

    Jason and Matilda Paeper
