  • Father Davy continues ministry in Kenya

    Editor:

    I continue enjoying my ministry in Kenya in good health and high spirits. I am now in a new parish, where the local language is Kikuyu.

    I celebrated my first Mass in Kikuyu last Saturday. I visited couple of orphanages and one hospital run by the diocese. The hospital has a special ward to take care of the unwanted babies and orphans. There are more than 50 children and young adults who are physically and mentally challenged.

  • Rotary appreciates scramble supporters

    Editor:

    On behalf of the Carrollton Rotary, we would personally like to thank those who made donations towards the Carrollton Rotary/Earl Floyd Ford 20th annual Charity Golf Tournament on Sept. 11.  The tournament was a tremendous success.

  • Heroin is a problem

    Editor:

    Concerning heroin, changing the laws is not going to stop the drugs. Everybody needs to come together. What is needed is prayer.

    And a person has to want to change themselves. It’s a heartache to lose a loved one. I lost my daughter Mona to drugs.

    It’s not because a child comes from bad parents. Nobody knows what people go through.

    The police can’t be 24 hours a day. And we need more information through the schools. There is also counseling available in the Carrollton area.

  • Support for summer programs wins praise

    Editor:

    September is the end of the season for the farmers market First Fridays in downtown Carrollton. To me it seems like the four months weren’t long enough this year. I think it’s because the events had more things going on and were more fun.

  • Group has sole focus on heroin issue

    Editor:

    I have heard so many times over the past few weeks that all these “dope groups” as they are referred to need to come together. I don’t understand why it’s so hard for people to realize we all have different goals and different ideas on how to reach them. We have tried working with the Hope Against Dope and realized we wanted different things. Champions is working with children, or that’s what most everyone thought till recently. Now people are aware it is for adults also.

  • Group extends thanks for Safe Night support

    Editor:

  • Champions extends hand to new groups

    Editor:

    I wanted to take this opportunity to alleviate any confusion that the community might have at this point regarding some “drug free” groups within Carroll County. I can’t speak for every organization/entity, but I can speak on behalf of Champions for a Drug Free Carroll County and how we currently or will connect with these groups in the future. 

  • Rain kept Sheppard, Lang from performing

    Editor:

    I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who helped in organizing and carrying out the Labor Day concert and fireworks.  Mother Nature did not cooperate on the Fourth of July or on Saturday of Labor Day weekend, so we were not able to enjoy T. G. Shepherd and Kelly Lang in concert nor were we entertained by Dennis Wheeler. But the effort was still there, and I am sure the event would have been a success.

  • NKCAC in need of freezer for programs

    Editor:

    The Northern Kentucky Community Action Committee is in need of a freezer for its community building.

    A donation will qualify for a tax deduction.

    Editor:

    Greetings from Kenya!

    I continue enjoying my ministry in Kenya in good health and in high spirits. Last week our CMI fathers opened Emmaus Retreat Center in Muranga Diocese, Kenya. During the blessing ceremony, Bishop James Maria Wainania thanked the CMI fathers for opening the first and only retreat center in the diocese.
