  • Senate’s balanced postal reform bill is the best solution

     Now that the U.S. Senate has passed bipartisan S 1789 to reform the ailing U.S. Postal Service, critics are trying to disable the bill on its way to the House. Both postal unions and USPS want more for their side, and some Republicans mistakenly believe the bill burdens taxpayers.

    Unfortunately, Kentucky Senators Mitch McConnell and Rand Paul both bought into that logic and opposed S 1789.

  • CCHS Football Boosters holds successful event

    Editor:

    On behalf of the Carroll County football team, coaches and boosters, I would like to extend a big thank-you to everyone who participated in the annual Carroll County High School Football Boosters Golf Scramble.

    Without all of you, the golf scramble could not be a success.

  • ‘Backyard’ concert series features great performers at park

    Because I was an hour early for a lunch date with some friends in Lexington last Friday, I decided to mosey on over to Dillard’s for a bit of retail therapy. As I browsed through the department that carries my size, the person ringing up sales was talking loudly about her Mother’s Day plans, wishing everyone a Happy Mother’s Day and just going on and on. 

  • Meal raised $1,501 for autism project

    Editor:

    I want to thank everybody who either attended or donated to my autism awareness/spaghetti meal April 29.

    Through the meal, the silent auction items and desserts helped raise $1,501.

    There were some great people helping in the kitchen, serving food and collecting the money. I am very grateful to my church, First Baptist.

    Since 2008 I have been able to raise $10,001. I consider myself the army of one. The more understanding of autism that takes place, the better life is.
