  • Economy is showing improvement

    It’s still early, but Kentucky’s economy is starting to show some solid signs of recovery.

    Late last month, for example, the state’s Education and Workforce Development Cabinet reported that September’s unemployment rates were down in 95 of our 120 counties when compared to September 2009.

    The Cabinet for Economic Development, meanwhile, says that, from the start of the year through September, dozens of companies across the Commonwealth had announced more than $1.13 billion in expansions that are projected to generate 6,600 jobs.

    We would like to thank all the organizations, Chris and Betty Pape, Carrollton Tourism, Butler State Park and all the great volunteers.

  • Legion thanks community for event

    Editor:

    American Legion Post 41 wishes to thank the Carroll County community, especially our veterans, for their attendance at Point Park on Veteran’s Day, Nov. 11. It was a chilly night but we thank everyone would agree that CSM (Ret.) Jimmy Supplee’s vision message and the high school patriotic entertainment was well worth the discomfort.

  • City, county must take action to capitalize on community's potential

       If there is one thing that everyone agrees on, it’s that Carrollton and Carroll County have lots of potential.

    Those of us who have moved here in the past decade have heard this repeatedly. We’re not alone, because life-long residents have heard this throughout their lives.

    Why do people say we have this potential?

    It only takes a few minutes to come up with an impressive list of the items that make this the point of agreement.

  • Thursday is a time to honor veterans

    Nov. 11 is Veterans Day.  On this day every year, we should all take time to recognize the service of the more than 300,000 veterans who call Kentucky home.  These men and women have put their lives on the line to defend our nation.

    As a former Army officer and 11-year veteran, I am committed to supporting and advocating for the well-deserved benefits of our service members, veterans and their families and will continue to fight for all who wear or have worn the uniform.
