  • Rotary offers guitar signed by George Jones

    Editor:

    The Carrollton Rotary Club is deeply saddened to learn of the death of legendary country singer George Jones. During his last visit to Carrollton, George was kind enough to sign a guitar for the Carrollton Rotary Club to raffle.

    Our team at The News-Democrat, with support from other offices within our company and the plant that prints the newspaper, have worked diligently to resolve these issues.

    April is Child Abuse Awareness Month, and at Champions for a Drug Free Carroll County we see the unfortunate connection between substance abuse and child abuse. According to The National Council of Child Abuse and Family Violence, “Substance abuse exists in 40 to 80 percent of families in which the children are victims of abuse.”

    To bring awareness and spread knowledge on this issue, Champions for a Drug Free Carroll County sponsors the annual Carrollton Child Abuse Prevention Event every April.

  • Gift shows library’s importance

    The intricacies of funding a public service like the library can be very confusing, sometimes political, and most often not very personal. 

    A few months ago, I was reminded of the importance of the personal connections that are made each and every day we open our doors. 

    Long time Carrollton resident William Lindsay bequeathed the library a generous sum of money. I understand the word generous may have several different connotations and might indicate some dollar amount.
