Today's Opinions

  • Mahoney shouldn’t be persecuted

    Editor:

    I do not condone drinking and driving and I am sorry about those who were killed in the 1988 bus crash in Carroll County. But I want people to know that Larry Mahoney works every day, he has not been in any trouble with the law, and has done his time.

    I do not think the Mothers Against Drunk Driving or anyone else needs to keep persecuting this man. It looks bad.

    Jesus said if you are without sin cast the first stone. No one is. We should forgive our brothers as Christ would want us to.

  • Soap Box Derby new to this year’s Race Fest event June 26

    Good luck Chamber Golf Scramble participants! The Carroll County Chamber of Commerce’s 10th annual golf scramble is currently under way today, May 15, at the Fairway Golf Course in Wheatley, Ky.

    The proceeds from the event provide funding for scholarships for our local students and for chamber events.

    Check out next month’s chamber article for a recap of the event.

    The Carroll County Chamber of Commerce’s Race Fest Day is Wednesday, June 26 on Main Street in downtown Carrollton.  The event will begin at 5 p.m.

  • Take advantage of genealogy events

    One of the things I like most about genealogists is their thirst for continuing education.

    Year-round, conferences and workshops are offered on a wide range of topics by local, state, regional and national organizations. It’s possible that someone with unlimited time and financial resources could attend two or three a month. Maybe more.

    I encourage anyone interested in family history research – whether for your own enjoyment or as a paid professional – to seek out these opportunities.

  • Play ball! Little League was ‘family’ affair

    Last week I read an article in the paper about the man from Williamsport, Penn., who started  Little League. Teen-age boys who wanted to play baseball other than on the school teams had a league, but there was not one at that time for pre-teen youth. And note, I said boys; no girls played little league for decades to come.

  • Take time to thank a teacher who has made a difference

    Typically in my monthly column, I address legal issues or current topics in the legal field, but, with your indulgence, I am going to deviate slightly this month.

    In case you did not know, this is National Teacher Appreciation Week. It is a week when we are to give thanks to those who give so much.

  • Thanks to staff, volunteers for work at Derby luncheon

    Editor:

    As the Executive Director of Fairview Place Senior Living in Carrollton, Ky., I would like to express my gratitude and appreciation to my staff and volunteers who helped to make our Senior Derby Luncheon a success.  Approximately 100 seniors and guest, enjoyed the luncheon in our Courtyard on Wednesday, May 1.

  • Champions: Thanks for help with event

    Editor:

    The 2013 Carrollton Child Abuse Prevention Event held on April 26 went great. Champions for a Drug Free Carroll County was able to sponsor the event successfully thanks to a number of community organizations and individuals.

  • There’s big efficiency in small things

    Nothing is more heartbreaking in homeownership than the high price of a large problem that started as a small, inexpensive problem. If you own a home, it is only a matter of time until you trace back a big mess to a failed part that cost $1.87.

    It plays out the same way with children.
