Today's Opinions

  • Put agendas aside, tackle the debt crisis

    How can we not be worried about our nation’s debt crisis?

    As I write this, all the politicians in Washington, D.C. are scurrying around trying to take some kind of action to prevent our nation from defaulting on our loans on Aug. 3. Without congressional action to raise the U.S. debt ceiling, we won’t be able to borrow more money. This appears to mean folks would not receive their Social Security checks or veterans’ benefits.

    This is a problem because our federal government now borrows 40 cents of every dollar it spends.

  • A volunteer experiences race mania

    I spent a good part of Saturday at the Kentucky Speedway as a volunteer for the Carroll County Animal Support Group. Our volunteers manned the tram stops Friday evening and from 8 a.m. till 9 p.m. Saturday. 

    It was an easy job, but oh so hot. I must say, I have never seen people work so hard to have fun.

  • Camp Invention offers a chance to hone skills

    Editor:

    I am so excited to extend my appreciation on behalf of our local Camp Invention science program to our wonderful community sponsors thus far: Gallatin Steel, Dow Corning, Kentucky Utilities, Arkema, North American Stainless, First National Bank of Carrollton and Farmers Bank of Milton. Your graciousness has made this event possible for many of our children who would not otherwise be able to attend. 

  • Race Fest group appreciates support

    Editor:

    On behalf of the Carroll County Chamber of Commerce and Carroll County Tourism, we would like to thank everyone who has helped organize and plan our Race Fest 2011. 

  • Don’t miss the next First Friday program

    There was a good crowd on the Courthouse Square for First Friday this weekend. I think it is one of the really nice things about our small town, and try not to ever miss that special evening. 

    Local farmers and some craftser display their goods. Carrollton Main Street Program furnishes ice water or (this past week) snow cones, while the Carroll County Fair Board or some other group usually fixes sandwiches.

    Lucky individuals get to try their hand(s) at the cash cube.Talented individuals win at cooking or photography contests.  

  • Softball concession committee thanks sponsors for support

    Editor:

    On behalf of the Carroll County High School softball team, we would like to say thank you to all of the fans and parents that came out this year to support the team.

    This year, we lost our concession stand and have struggled to raise funds for the program. With the help of the following sponsors we were able to make up some of the loss by selling advertisements for the district tournament programs.

  • Team Robbins extends “Thank You” message

    Editor:

    I would like to say congratulations to the Carroll County Relay for Life for another successful year.

  • Volunteers pick up 20 cubic yards of debris at annual River Sweep event on Saturday

    The 146 men, women and children who volunteered picked up more than 20 cubic yards of debris from the banks of the Ohio River.
