  • Dow Corning donated materials for new roof

    Editor:

    I am writing this letter from the administration and the board of directors of Carroll County Memorial Hospital to recognize the donation of materials by Dow Corning Corporation for our capital roofing project.

  • CCAS works hard to help local animals

    Editor:

    I am writing as a reminder that we are still working very hard in Carroll County for the homeless, abused and neglected animals. The week of April 9-17 is “Kentucky Week of the Animals.” We have put together a wonderful week of events (see calendar in this paper).

  • Carrollton still waits for states to build a bridge to Indiana

    While the Milton-Madison Bridge was in the planning and early construction stages in 1928 there was talk of building yet another bridge spanning the Ohio River at Carrollton. Among the movers and shakers behind the proposed span was Joseph Lyter Donaldson, Carroll County attorney at the time. Donaldson would, in the years to come, serve as chairman of the state highway commission and was the unsuccessful Democratic candidate for governor in 1943.

  • Veto deal on Medicaid plan ‘is wrong’

    The state Senate adjourned Thursday night having signed the Senate Committee Substitute to House Bill 1, legislation to resolve the Medicaid budget shortfall. Without even a need for a conference committee, the bill passed the House of Representatives overwhelmingly with only two no votes.

  • Those involved in search appreciated

    I would like  to take this opportunity to thank everyone that was involved in the search  for my dad, Mitch Vories.

    Special thanks are in order for Pastor Keith Mendenhall of Relevant Church,  Mike and Emily Beard, Roxie McNamara, and to my mother Jennifer Stewart for  putting together a beautiful memorial service for dad. He would truly have  been proud.

  • House move averts Medicaid shortfall

    During the legislative session that ended earlier this month, Kentuckians saw a textbook example of what positive things can happen when both parties in the General Assembly come together and work toward the Commonwealth’s greater good.

    The end result was a landmark law that stands as the biggest change to our criminal code since it was overhauled in the mid-1970s. It showed just how effective the legislative process could be when everyone has a seat at the table and a desire to do something truly meaningful.

  • Medicaid funding must be resolved

    Last fall, when the General Assembly finalized the calendar for the 2011 Regular Session, this past week was scheduled to be one of the quietest of the year. It was set aside as part of a 10-day period known as the veto recess, which gives the governor time to consider legislation sent to him and then gives legislators a chance to use the session’s final day to consider vetoes, if any occur.
