  • Relay for Life prepares for next year’s event

    Editor:

    Carroll County Relay for Life is gearing up for a great 2014 event, but to make the event a success we need volunteers and team participation. 

    The official kick-off is at 6 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 7, at the Carroll County Extension Office, 500 Floyd Drive. 

    At this time we would like to extend an invitation to any teams or team members, to anyone who may be interested in starting a team, volunteers who would like to become a part of the committee, or any survivors who would like to attend.

  • Family thanks local firefighters

    Editor:

    We want to thank the Westside Volunteer Fire Department, Bedford and Milton Volunteer Fire Departments for saving our home on Oct. 7. We lost our barn and garage that night, but because of their courageous efforts we have our home and no one was injured. We will be forever grateful.

    The men and young lady put their lives in danger each time they answer a call. We saw first hand that night how valuable they are to our community.

  • Trail ride raises funds for local children

    Editor:

    The Carroll County Sheriff’s Office, Carroll County Jailer Mike Humphrey and the Carrollton Police Department wish to thank all those who helped in making the annual fundraiser for the Shop With A Cop Trail Ride such a success.

    We had more than 100 horses and riders and netted over $3,000 towards this worthy cause.

  • Historical society thanks supporters of Heritage Day

    Editor:

    On behalf of the Port William Historical Society, I would like to thank everyone who participated in and attended the Kentucky Heritage Day at the Masterson House on Sept. 28.

    The Historical Society’s purpose in hosting Heritage Day each year is to educate people on Kentucky and Carroll County’s rich history and traditions. 

    It was a fun-filled and well attended event thanks to the hard work of many.

  • 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.
