  • Priest begins his duties in Nairobi

    Editor:

    Greetings from Kenya!

    I spent three weeks in the United Kingdom. I visited my friends, family members and the members of my Carmeite Community in England, Wales and Scotland. I left for Kenya on July 23, the day after the royal baby was born.

    I arrived in Nairobi on July 24. I went to the school that I started close to the airport. Carmelite fathers and the community welcomed me warmly. Roasted rabbit was served at the welcome dinner. I saw a lot of developments in the campus and around.

  • CCAS can no longer help with cats

    Editor:

    This year, it seems Carroll County has been overrun by homeless and feral cats and kittens. In fact, many counties in the area have seen an explosion of cat populations.

    Part of the problem is that people aren’t making sure their pets are spayed and neutered. A female will have a litter, but no one wants the kittens so they are dumped someplace out in the county. Those that survive go on to have more litters, and the problem continues to escalate.

  • Team Robbins extends thank you message

    Editor:

    I would like to say congratulations to the Carroll County Relay for Life for another successful year.

  • Jam Sessions feature talent at restaurant

    Editor:

    Nothing will help a community stand out more than its homegrown music. Carroll County has a great crop of talent from country to gospel and bluegrass to rock ‘n roll. I invested a little time this summer to do what I could to support local music by coordinating and promoting a summer series for Welch’s Riverside Restaurant that I named “Welch’s Jam Sessions.”

  • Fairview Place director says thanks for support

    As a result of their teamwork, Fairview Place received the 2013 Excellence in Civic Involvement Award from the Kentucky Assisted Living Facilities Association.

  • Warning sirens show community is prepared

    Editor:

    The recent succession of tornadoes that have torn a wide swath through many parts of Oklahoma underscores the need for community readiness and vigilance. Though tornadoes are not as common in Kentucky as they are in the plains states, they are not unheard of and indeed last year’s severe weather, though not very destructive, brings the issue close to home.

  • Relay for Life thanks everyone for support

    Editor:

  • Thank you for tornado donations

    Editor:

    I’d like to take a minute to thank everyone who was involved with our tornado relief trip to Oklahoma a couple weeks ago.  So many people stepped up with items to donate, words of encouragement, monetary donations, help sorting and boxing, and most of all prayers and concern, that we were really overwhelmed emotionally.

  • Event benefits Big Brothers, Big Sisters

    Editor:

    Big Brothers/Big Sisters is a non profit organization whose mission is to help children reach their potential through professionally supported, one-to-one relationships with mentors. It is one of the oldest and largest youth-mentoring organizations in the United States.

  • CFD thanks community for help, donation to Crusade

    This year’s WHAS Crusade for Children was a success.

    We raised $4,732 during our weekend fundraising activities. This money will go to some very needy causes in and around our communities.

    This could not have been possible without a lot of participation from many different groups and individuals, including the Westside Fire Department, Carroll County Rescue Squad, Boy Scouts Troop 131, Cub Scout Pack 418, Girl Scout Troop 38, and many community volunteers.
