  • 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

    We have a Good Samaritan among us. His name is Eddie Mefford. When he sees someone in trouble, he stops to help them. He is truly a Good Samaritan. Thanks, Eddie. Thank you so much.

  • Board member unhappy with Shelby Energy

    Editor:
    On Nov. 19, 2010, The Courier-Journal reported that the East Kentucky Power Cooperative was abandoning their proposed Smith generating facility in Clark County. The consequence to the member-customers of rural cooperatives in Kentucky is that they get to pay the $150 million already spent in the plant’s development. The reason for this cancellation was that the generating capacity was not needed.
