  • Shopping locally will boost our economy

    Everyone appears to be looking to Frankfort or to Washington to take action that will improve our local economy and put people back to work.
    But that’s not necessary.
    With the holiday shopping season here, you can have an impact on the economy in Carroll County by simply spending your holiday budget here at home.

  • Wraps make great use of Thanksgiving leftovers

    Happy Thanksgiving everyone. I am sure you are in the midst of preparing your holiday meal, but it is also the time to take a minute and reflect on the important things in life. I am so thankful for my five perfect grandchildren, three wonderful children, a fantastic daughter-in-law, delightful daughter-in-law to be and a very special son-in-law to be. However, the most important person I am so very thankful for is my husband. He is my rock.

    So enjoy your wonderful day, indulge in the sights, smells and food,  and be as happy as you can. It is a wonderful day.

  • It’s great to reconnect with friends

    I think it’s good to reconnect.  For many years I had pretty much lost contact with friends from high school which was sad since we had been a very tight knit group of gals. Some of us were majorettes; some played in the band; some were cheerleaders.  Others, like me (who had failed miserably at playing the French horn) were just in the stands for every ball game and at Dog n Suds afterwards, packed into whatever family automobile available that night. Then we scattered and it was many years before we began to get together.

  • Pageant winner thanks her local supporters

    Editor:

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank those individuals who helped make my experience at The Miss Kentucky State Festival Pageant a successful and memorable journey. First and foremost I would like to thank my entire family for their undying support, both financially and emotionally.

  • Economy is showing improvement

    It’s still early, but Kentucky’s economy is starting to show some solid signs of recovery.

    Late last month, for example, the state’s Education and Workforce Development Cabinet reported that September’s unemployment rates were down in 95 of our 120 counties when compared to September 2009.

    The Cabinet for Economic Development, meanwhile, says that, from the start of the year through September, dozens of companies across the Commonwealth had announced more than $1.13 billion in expansions that are projected to generate 6,600 jobs.
