  • Historical society seeks new members

    Editor:

    The Port William Historical Society will be hosting an open house/membership drive on Oct. 15, from 1-3 p.m. at the Masterson House on U.S. 42.

    The society has funds thanks to the generosity of Carroll County Fiscal Court and Carrollton City Council. Funds are also generated through membership dues and donations.

    Being a member does not obligate one to attend meetings, which are held the fourth Tuesday of every other month, but any support the public can give the society is deeply appreciated.

  • Thanks for everyone’s help with Bands & BBQ

    Editor:

    What would we do without wonderful volunteers and so many departments working well together! Carrollton/Carroll County Tourism would like to sincerely thank the following for their help with this year’s Bands & BBQ!

  • Church starts collection for Carrollton Manor

    Editor:

    Recently our local newspaper had a letter to the editor requesting clothing assistance for the residents of the Carrollton Manor Nursing Home. Our Lunch Bunch Group at Carrollton Christian said they were up to the ministry challenge. We have decided to also open up this ministry opportunity to our enitre church and our Carrollton community.

  • Franklin thanks her pageant supporters

    Editor:

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank a few individuals and groups that made my competition at The National Sweetheart Pageant, representing Kentucky, a success.

    First of all, to Vibrant Med/Erica Chowning for sponsoring the making of my state video with Beyond the Lens Productions. It turned out beautifully and I could not have asked for more supportive sponsors! Also, thanks to Cody Brown with Beyond the Lens for letting his creative juices flow and produce an amazing video in a short time.

  • Thanks for coverage of Arts n’ Barks

    Editor:

    I would like to thank The News Democrat for the full-page coverage of the Arts n’ Barks in the Park. The event was a family fun-filled day with vendors, music and activities for all. It was great to see the community get involved. I appreciate the newspaper picturing all the happenings of the day.

  • Volunteers, items needed at Carrollton Manor

    Editor:

    It is not often I write a special letter for someone, but I recently have been visiting with some of the residents of the Carrollton Manor. One in particular has touched my heart tremendously. Upon visiting her this year, I noticed several things. The place could use a bit of sprucing up.

    There is probably 30 to 40 residents in need of nurturing of the soul. You can feed a person; but they need some things to be proud of. I understand from my conversation with Mrs. Melissa Tucker, administrator, they do have activities but not enough, really.

  • Senior housing options exist in Carroll County

    Editor:

    This letter is written in response to the P&Z Comprehensive Plan Survey results published in the paper on Aug. 18. We at Fairview Place found it interesting that 13 percent of the respondents were age 65 and over, but 26 percent of the people who replied regarding the housing section of the survey considered availability of senior citizen housing a problem. One of the top ten land uses encouraged was a need for senior/assisted living.
