    Although the economy has weathered some of its toughest years since the Great Depression, there has been one bright spot for Kentucky: Agriculture.  The new year, in fact, may just bring a new record with it.

    If all goes well, farm receipts could top $5 billion in 2011, or a billion dollars more than just several years ago.

  • Plan to stash extra cash since it won’t go into Social Security

    Have you ever received what appears to be good news, but then start wondering if it really is after you have a chance to start processing it.

  • State lawmakers prepare for a busy 2011 session

  • Christmas wreath winner announced

    Editor:

    The second Christmas wreath decorating contest and silent auction was held by Carrollton Federal Bank Dec. 10 in conjunction with an open house. The proceeds from the silent auction went to the Meals on Wheels Program. All of the wreaths submitted for the contest displayed imagination and creativity. This was evident by the close race for first place with only one vote difference between first and second place.  It was our honor to display the wreaths in our lobby.  They were beautifully decorated and received many compliments by the public.
