  • Christmas wreath winner announced

    Editor:

    The second Christmas wreath decorating contest and silent auction was held by Carrollton Federal Bank Dec. 10 in conjunction with an open house. The proceeds from the silent auction went to the Meals on Wheels Program. All of the wreaths submitted for the contest displayed imagination and creativity. This was evident by the close race for first place with only one vote difference between first and second place.  It was our honor to display the wreaths in our lobby.  They were beautifully decorated and received many compliments by the public. 

  • Readers praise on Shop with a Cop

    What an uplifting story in The News-Democrat....Shop with a Cop, to aid 124 children this Christmas!

    We can only imagine how the almost 700 children and their families have been impacted by this wonderful program over the last 10 years.

    Congratulations and God Bless each and every person that’s involved with Shop With a Cop! Just another reason we are proud to call Carrollton our home!

    Sincerely,

    Jason and Matilda Paeper

  • Rand reminds readers of Frankfort successes, urges them to contact him

    When we think about Christmas and its many traditions, we may find ourselves wondering just how long they have been with us.

    Christmas carols, for example, date back to the 1400s, and the decorated Christmas tree came just a short while later; in fact, historians believe it celebrates its 500th anniversary this year, after beginning in Northern Europe and eventually spreading to our country during the Revolutionary War.

  • Senate Majority agenda to address concerns of citizens

    The Senate Majority gathered on Dec. 9-10 to discuss the upcoming session and lay out legislative priorities.  The session will only be a 30-day one; we have only a brief time so we have to make the most of it and respond to the issues we heard from voters in the fall.
