  • Preventing child abuse is focus of Friday event

     Friday is the big day. Champions for a Drug Free Carroll County and our event partners, Family Ties, 21st Century Lighthouse and Youth Services invite the entire community, to attend our free Child Abuse Prevention Month event. It will take place from 6:30-9 p.m. Friday, April 25, at the Courthouse Square in downtown Carrollton. 

    In Carroll County and across the nation, this year’s Child Abuse Prevention theme is “Making Meaningful Connections.”

  • May is a time to honor foster parents

    Editor:

    May is National Foster Care Month, and we would like to take this opportunity to thank foster and kinship parents in our community for their hard work and dedication to families across our region.

    This month provides the opportunity to thank the foster families who provide homes and love to children who need them. Foster parents often become the substitute family for the youth, regardless of how long they stay – be it an hour or a lifetime.

  • Approved state budget lowers debt ratio

    When the General Assembly adjourned at midnight Tuesday night, it did so having worked to make Kentucky better by passing legislation aimed at improving the lives of Kentuckians, by passing twice a budget with a lower debt ratio and structural imbalance than what was originally suggested by the Governor and House of Representatives.

  • Lawmakers wrap up issues at veto session

    When the General Assembly left the Capitol late last month for its traditional veto recess – the roughly two-week period a governor has to approve or reject legislation – it was already becoming clear that the regular session’s final two days would be busy.

    That certainly proved to be the case early last week, when the House and Senate worked late to find common ground on several high-profile issues.

  • Libraries help open patrons to new horizons

    I hope that it goes without saying that we love our patrons. To put it in the simplest terms, our patrons are the only reason we open our doors every day. This is one of the few professions that is here to serve the public. We exist to provide our community with resources for learning, entertainment and leisure.

  • Lawmakers wrap up lingering issues

    Traditionally, the last day of a legislative session is set aside just to consider any vetoes the governor may make.  Recently, however, the General Assembly has also used the time to wrap up a few lingering issues, and this year is no different.

  • Scouts help cleanup after water line break

    Editor:

    The Port William Historical Society would like to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to the scouts and leaders from Boys Scout Troop No. 131 for their help at the Masterson House this past Saturday as we began the clean up from a burst water pipe caused by the recent cold weather.

    Their help was invaluable in getting us started on the renovations necessary from the deluge. Again, to the members and leaders of Troop 131, thank you for your hard work.
