Today's Opinions

  • Figures show economy appears to be recovering

    Earlier this year, as the General Assembly was putting together the budget to run state government, it was becoming increasingly clear that the state was finally beginning to see some lasting growth.

    That was further confirmed several weeks ago, when one of the state’s economists said that “all signs are pointing to the likelihood that the recovery is here to stay.”

  • More thanks offered for support of Champions

    Editor:

    Carroll County Champions apologizes for leaving a few people out of thank you for the Child Abuse Awareness event. We would like to extend “thank yous” to Muffett Chowing for transporting the picnic table numerous times; the carpentry class at the vocational school for building the table; Dave Huesman for filling balloons with helium; Rodney Wheeler for getting the second tank of helium and delivering to us; and Kevin Craig for donating the Helium. Thank you all. We appreciate the extra mile you went just for us.

     

  • Make a choice, attend Friday’s Leadercast

    Editor:

    You have a choice. What will you do with it?  The Carroll County Chamber of Commerce Chick-fil-A Leadercast is this Friday, May 4,  at Family Worship Center.  The event theme is “Choices.” 

  • Webster remembered for the many things he did for Carrollton

    Many have shared their memories of Charlie Webster this past week and tonight, as I write, I am moved to share mine.

    In a large way, Charlie was Carrollton to me. I first met him as my pharmacist working out of the old drug store on the square, but soon we connected in a much closer way. Both unrepentant Democrats, we shared our experiences and beliefs in that party over the years. Our stories of old-time politics in small Kentucky towns were made real by our memories of our parents and grandparents.

  • Popsicle fund raising event brought in $40

    Editor:

    I would like to thank everyone who stopped by and bought a popsicle from my grandson David Day or donated money.

    He collected $40 for the two days he was open for business. The money was mailed to Children’s Hospital in Cincinnati, Ohio. Thank you all again.

  • Students had good experience on trip

    Editor:

    I was fortunate to be a chaperone on the Carroll County Middle School’s recent trip to Washington D.C. What a great experience – excluding the bus breakdowns – to visit the different sites we had the opportunity to see. Seeing the Capitol Building, the White House and the monuments, etc., is something that will never be forgotten.

  • Son’s lack of fear displays his courage in an audition

    “I need to borrow your guitar, Dad.”  That was the request of my 8-year old last week. “I’m trying out for the spring talent showcase.”

    I had to interject and remind him that he does not know how to play the guitar — never had a lesson.

    He informed me that he was going to sing a song and also play it on guitar. I didn’t like the idea of sending him to school with my guitar, especially since he doesn’t know how to play guitar. 

  • Arkema helps former workers, ALS cause

    Editor:

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank Arkema Carrollton Plant and its employees for their support for my family.  I was employed at this company for more than 25 years before I left to work home health full time.  My brother-in-law was diagnosed with ALS three years ago and my family has been very active in fundraising for this non-profit organization to search for a cure, buy equipment and provide support for people affected by this terrible disease.
