  • Girl Scouts’ project aids homeless pets

    Editor:

    I am writing a special letter of thanks to our local Girl Scout Troop 606, led by Tracey Reynolds and Danielle Davis. They recently did a drive for Carroll County Animal Support at Kathryn Winn and Cartmell Elementary schools.

    They collected a total of 352 items to donate to our group for the homeless animals of Carroll County, which included food, toys, treats, sweaters, collars, leashes, litter and puppy pads.

  • Relay for Life kickoff set for Feb. 21

    Editor:

    Carroll County Relay for Life is gearing up for a great Relay year, but to make the event a success we need volunteers.  The official kick off will take place at 6 p.m., Thursday, Feb. 21 at Carrollton United Methodist Church in the fellowship hall (handicapped accessible).

  • Girl Scout cookies offer ‘sweet success’

    Editor:

    Everyone loves Girl Scout Cookies. But did you know that with every Samoa or Thin Mint you buy, you are helping build strong, successful girls?

    With Girl Scout Cookie booths set for Feb. 17-March 22, this is a great time to talk about what girls gain from Girl Scouting. It is a good time to look at why we all have a stake in helping today’s girls succeed.

  • Exercise program helps those with arthritis

    Editor:

    I wish to thank the Health Department and especially Rachel [Dermon] for allowing me to participate in the [arthritis] exercise program that is presented there.  It has helped me so much and taught me to cope with some issues with my health and agility problems. 

    My family thanks them, too, and makes sure I do not miss a class. We laugh a lot in this class and enjoy each other. Please know, this 83-year-old appreciates the programs – and Rachel, who pushes us to keep trying to excel.

  • Residents need to cleanup in Ghent

    Editor:

    I have some concerns about the way a few places here in the city of Ghent look. There are quite a few places that are an eyesore here. They are nasty-looking places, with trash scattered everywhere and in need of cleaning up. It is just an eyesore every time we go past them. There isn’t any sense in people living like hermits with trash.

  • Bank’s Dec. 7 open house a great success

    Editor:

    Carrollton Federal Bank hosted a Christmas open house on Dec. 7, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.  to celebrate Christmas with the community.

    The event was well attended and received. Those attending received individual gifts, as well as homemade refreshments and personal fellowship with the staff members.

  • Bank earns thanks 
for its holiday spirit

    Editor:

    The staff and clients of the Carrollton Adult Day Training at NorthKey would like to thank Rita Power and her staff at River Valley Financial Bank for their generosity toward the ADT at Christmas. On Thursday, Dec. 20, the clients were treated to a pizza party and if that were not enough, the bank also provided a gift bag to each of the clients containing clothes, socks and candy.

    The ADT clients were very surprised and so appreciative that they were given such an unexpected gift. This is truly community service at its finest.

  • Rotary says thanks to Herb Kinman

    Editor:

    The Carrollton Rotary Club would like to thank Herb Kinman and the folks at Herb Kinman Chevrolet for allowing us to be a part of their grand reopening on Dec. 8.  Through their help, we are able to donate a gift of $500 to the Carroll County Food Pantry to help those who are less fortunate.
