  • Senate passes bills on safety issues

    Another week goes by in a whirl of legislative meetings, visits from hometown folks and organized groups such as 4-H and the 874K Coalition. Even though the House has yet to act on the budget proposal, senators continue to educate ourselves and monitor the budget meetings in the House. In addition, senators continue to meet in small groups to review the different budget needs of the various agencies. We expect to receive the House proposal next week.

  • Boyd reminisces about childhood church services

    Thanks from me as a member of the Carroll County Animal Support Group to everyone who attended our chili supper Saturday night. We raised a record amount of money for this affair, with meal sales, bake sale and our silent auction items. So many in the community contributed to the silent auction and again, we raised more money through that this year than ever before. Our bake sale table was laden with scrumptious goodies created by volunteer bakers.   Mark Louden in the early part of the evening and Power Plant later on provided enjoyable music  that the crowd enjoyed.

  • Stoops thanks everyone for support in Miss Ky. pageant


    Last month I competed in the Miss Kentucky USA pageant representing Carroll County. Although I did not walk away with the crown, I had a phenomenal experience. I spent over six months preparing for the pageant, which included working

    closely with those in my community. During those six months I received a major outpouring of support from my community, whether it was in Facebook well wishes, sponsorships or kind words, I want Carroll County residents to know that theydid not go unnoticed.
