Letters

  • Author was right about technology

    Editor:

    I do not know Kathryn Gillespie, but I wish to commend her for last week’s thought-provoking article on American society’s excessive use of technology. I agree with much that she had to say.

    Having, in the past, been employed in the data processing field and also having a tendency toward “internet addiction,” I have thought much on this topic.

  • Family appreciates those who serve

    Editor:

    This letter is in dedication to all of our community firefighters, policemen and women, EMTs and first responders.

    We think, in general, people, and including ourselves, have taken these very special and much needed people and their service to our community for granted.

  • Honest man turns in lost ATM card

    Editor:

    In the midst of crimes and untrustworthy people, there are still those who hold fast to their integrity.

    Not long ago, I dropped my debit card outside of Speedway in Carrollton. I did not miss it until later. I was really worried and was just getting ready to cancel it when the bank called and said they had mya card.

    The man who found it took it to my bank and put it in the night depositary. He did not stop there, but called the bank to verify that they found it.

  • NAMI group looks to form locally

    Editor:

    There is a national organization-National Alliance for Mental Illness, that is just awesome and has helped many people. We need this in Carroll County.

    We are going to be offering a 12-week course starting on Thursday, March 6, from 6-8:30 p.m. upstairs in the old courthouse for families who have members who suffer from mental illness. It is free.

  • CCHS students praised for sportsmanship

    Editor:

    My name is Cindy Cornett and I am a parent of No. 35, Justin Cornett, on Cordia’s basketball team. Your students are to be commended. Their kindness did not go unnoticed.  

  • Snow removal efforts appreciated by family

    Editor:

    We would like to acknowledge the City of Ghent snow removal/road work by Jimmy Lewellyn. His dedication to plowing and salting the roads by being out extremely early in the morning and continually up keeping the equipment and supplies in order to provide manageable roads for drivers needs to be acknowledged. His commitment to the job goes way beyond being a City Commissioner/Supervisor of Streets and Roads; he cares about the city and its safety. It’s important to take the time to thank Jimmy for his volunteer efforts.

    Joe Eddie and Mary Beall,

  • KU group donations to Lighthouse

    Editor:

    I want to thank the Kentucky Utilities Recreation Committee for its wonderful, generous donations to the children of the Cartmell Elementary Lighthouse. The students were thrilled to receive soccer balls, art supplies, building sets and puzzles. The hula hoops we received were a huge hit, and the kids are looking forward to tie-dying T-shirts when the weather is warmer. Most exciting for them was the Wii, controllers and “Just Dance 2014” game. We have a lot of dancers here!

  • Thanks extended to everyone at CCHS

    Editor:

    Thanks goes out to Carroll County High School. I will not be forgetting Jan. 10, anytime soon. I am very appreciative to everyone that made this night happen. Special needs kids sometimes just get forgotten.

    I am grateful for every vote Noah received, everybody that attended the game, the gentleman who started the standing ovation, the high fives, the thank yous that were said, the people who let Bill and I into the game, and the photos taken. There were 34 to be exact — Noah counted them.

  • Carrollton Manor appreciates support from the community

    Editor:

    The residents and staff of Carrollton Manor would like to thank the following for making our Christmas very merry: PMC Organometallix, United Methodist Church, Lords Church, 10 Mile Association, Girl Scouts of Kentuckianna, High School Carolers, Carrollton Federal Bank and Jim Crawford.

    Thank you again to everyone and have a Happy New Year.

  • Delayed holiday event was successful

    Editor:

    This year’s icy weather conditions caused “A Christmas Carroll” to be delayed for a week.  People with crafts, parade and food entries planned for this event and disappointed.  However, safety was an issue that had to be considered. The ice and snow caused the tent where the event was to be held to collapse. Luckily, no one got hurt.

    The Carrollton Main Street Program Committee rescheduled the event and we are very glad we did.
