  • Simple changes in new year can lead to better health

    Pilates and yoga exercises are a spine-friendly alternative to sit ups and crunches.

  • Delayed holiday event was successful

    Editor:

    This year’s icy weather conditions caused “A Christmas Carroll” to be delayed for a week.  People with crafts, parade and food entries planned for this event and disappointed.  However, safety was an issue that had to be considered. The ice and snow caused the tent where the event was to be held to collapse. Luckily, no one got hurt.

    The Carrollton Main Street Program Committee rescheduled the event and we are very glad we did.

  • Couple appreciates coverage of their visit

  • 2013 saw growth in community’s efforts to fight illegal drugs

    As 2013 comes to a close, I would like to take this opportunity to reflect on some positive outcomes from the year. Champions for a Drug Free Carroll County is lucky to be a part of such a close-knit community and that is one of the main reasons for our success.

    I have noticed how easy it is for individuals to see the negative aspects and dwell on them because sometimes they might overshadow the positive ones.

    But here, I will shed some light on the optimistic outcomes that you may have subconsciously hid in the background.

  • Holiday brings busy time around state

    It may seem to start a little earlier every year, and it may fatten our waistlines while it thins our wallets, but there really is no time more special than the holidays.

    That is especially true here in the Common-wealth, where there is always something to do to get in the spirit of the season, from Christmas parades and concerts to numerous events at our churches, schools and state parks.

  • Mefford helps students meet college, career goals

    In her new role as a College and Career Readiness counselor, Rachel Mefford is a key part of the push to help Carroll County students succeed in the new economy. Located at the Carroll County Area Technology Center, Mefford works with students one-on-one to help meet their college and career goals.

  • New website focuses on library as community hub

    There are many different ways the library represents itself. We have a physical presence with amazing facilities. We feel this is a great benefit to Carrollton’s Downtown Historic District and to Carroll County. It is the keystone to our organization, but it cannot be the sole representation of any successful business in this day of technology and the Internet.

  • Wreath contest, other winners honored

    Editor:

    The fifth annual Christmas wreath decorating contest and silent auction was held Dec. 13 by Carrollton Federal Bank in conjunction with an open house. The proceeds from the silent auction went to the Tuttle Tots Early Childhood Education Fund and the Ryder Nichols Deitz Education Fund. All of the wreaths submitted for the contest displayed imagination and creativity. It was our honor to display the wreaths in our lobby. They were beautifully decorated and received many compliments from the public.
