  • Fairview Place director says thanks for support

    Dear Editor:

    As the executive director of Fairview Place in Carrollton, I would like to express my gratitude and appreciation to the staff, volunteers and residents of Fairview Place. 

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

    This award is presented to an assisted living facility that provides services and programs for the betterment of seniors who reside in the facility or seniors in the area. 

  • 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

  • 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.

  • C’ton Idol to pay tribute to wreck victims

    Editor:

    On behalf of the Carroll County Fair Association we would like to invite you to join us for a night of amazing talent and lots of fun. 

    Carrollton Idol is the first singing competition to hit the fair in 103 years. Last year was the first year the exciting, heart-stopping show debuted. It held the largest audience to ever hit the fairgrounds holding more than 2,500 people that night. Season two of Carrollton Idol is predicted to have a much bigger crowd this year. There will be performances by the top 12 finalists.

  • Tractor club appreciates its local support

     Editor:

    The Pioneer Power Antique Tractor Club would like to thank everyone for helping to make this year’s 11th Annual Antique tractor show a success.

    Our goal is to preserve the history of agricultural machinery for future generations to learn from. It takes a huge effort to put on a show like this and without the support of the local businesses, exhibitors, vendors and spectators this event would not be possible.

  • CFD to collect for Crusade for Children May 29-June 1

    Editor:

    Having been a part of the WHAS Crusade for Children now for a decade, I am honored to announce to the community that it is again time for the 60th annual WHAS Crusade for Children weekend. What a wonderful charity that helps so many deserving children and their families in Kentuckiana, including right here in Carroll County.

    Since 1956 when the first fire department in Kentucky joined forces with WHAS to pledge their support to disabled children, fire departments now raise approximately 50 percent of donations pledged each year.
