  • 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.

  • Mahoney shouldn’t be persecuted

    Editor:

    I do not condone drinking and driving and I am sorry about those who were killed in the 1988 bus crash in Carroll County. But I want people to know that Larry Mahoney works every day, he has not been in any trouble with the law, and has done his time.

    I do not think the Mothers Against Drunk Driving or anyone else needs to keep persecuting this man. It looks bad.

    Jesus said if you are without sin cast the first stone. No one is. We should forgive our brothers as Christ would want us to.
