  • Goodbye to Kenya

    Editor:

    I enjoyed my five months stay and ministry in Kenya. I am leaving for India on December 10.

    It was a challenge for me to get out of my comfort zone in Kentucky and stay in Kenya with minimum facilities and lots of hardships. I am glad the good Lord kept me safe in his powerful hands. Prayers and encouraging notes that flew from Carrollton to Kenya were very helpful to get through everything. Though I lost some weight I never got sick. Thanks be to God!

  • Education will again be a top issue for lawmakers next year

    Our schools may still have a couple of weeks left before Christmas break and the end of the fall semester, but some of the latest “report cards” on Kentucky’s academic progress have already arrived.

    Perhaps the most well-known of those came in early November, when the National Assessment of Educational Progress gave its latest breakdown of our fourth and eighth grade scores in reading and math.

  • Champions thanks county for donation

    Editor:

    I’d like to take this opportunity to thank the Carroll County Fiscal Court for its generous donation to Champions for a Drug Free Carroll County. We appreciate the continued support throughout the years and are honored to have them on board to help diminish drug use in Carroll County.

    We – the coalition and staff – are happy to have the county officials on our side to fight this epidemic. We are forever grateful.

  • Smoke-free laws protect everyone’s health

    Editor:

    Some people claim that smoke-free laws are the government’s infringement on private-property rights. Business owners may privately own their business, but by inviting the public in, they are required by the government to ensure safe food and clean water.

    Similarly, government has the responsibility to regulate the indoor air we breathe, free of secondhand smoke pollution.

  • Thanks to all who contributed to food drive

    Editor:

    A BIG thanks to the community for another outstanding Scouting For Food Campaign. This past Saturday, about 60 Scouts and community volunteers braved a cold morning to hit the streets and pick up food, bring it back to the food pantry, count, sort and finally put it on the shelves – a big undertaking. The results were outstanding – 4,589 items collected.

  • Winn PTA says fall festival was a success

    Dear Editor:

  • Scouts to collect food donations Saturday

    Editor:

    It’s Scouting for Food time again. Local Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts, Girl Scouts and a host of others representing various groups will hit the streets Saturday, Nov. 23, to pick-up your donations to the Carroll County Food Pantry. Please have your items in bags placed in a high-visibility location outside your home by 9 a.m.

  • Law helps get loved one into treatment

    Editor:

    Have you heard of “Casey’s” Law? Casey’s Law was established to provide a means of intervening with someone who is a substance abuser and is unable to recognize his or her need for treatment due to his or her impairment.

    The law allows a parent, relative or friend to petition the court for treatment on behalf of their loved one, even if he/she is over the age of 18.

  • Champions extends thanks for support of Red Ribbon week

    Editor:

    I would like to to thank a number of individuals who helped make Red Ribbon Week a successful week of awareness on diminishing the use of drugs within our community. Champions for a Drug Free Carroll County is proud to sponsor this week among our county.

    Big thanks to Family Ties, 21st Century Lighthouse and Family Resource Center, my partners in Red Ribbon Week. Without your help and planning, none of this would be possible.

  • Regional event set to honor veterans

    Editor:

    Carrollton is one of the nine “Founding Father” cities co-sponsoring the inaugural tri-state Veterans Day celebration at 2 p.m., Nov. 10 at Willis Music Stage, Turfway  Park, Florence. Many local communities have had veterans programs over the years in the Cincinnati area, but this is the first program we know about that provides free entertainment to honor veterans and active duty in all three states.
