  • Davy takes sabbatical, thanks community for prayers, support

    I have received several enquiries regarding my sabbatical leave. I hope this note will answer most of the questions.

    I have been serving in the diocese of Covington for the last seven-and-a-half years. It has been 15 years since I left my native country, India. I served nine years in Kenya prior to my arrival in the United States.

    I asked permission from the Most Reverend Bishop Foys and my Provincial Superior to allow me to take a one-year sabbatical leave. With their permission, I am taking sabbatical leave from July to June 2014.

  • Library serves hundreds in county every day

    This library has been a fixture in our community for close to 75 years. We pride ourselves on being a valuable asset that only serves to enhance the quality of life to the citizens of Carroll County. As a matter of fact, that is the crux of our mission statement. But how do we do that? 

  • Lawmakers work on bills for next year

    The interim period is upon us. This is the time between the regular legislation sessions when committees meet jointly with both Senate and House members, we discuss issues that will likely come up in January, and begin to vet legislation drafts.

    We also have the opportunity to schedule meetings throughout the state as we try to bring Frankfort to more citizens. Besides serving as chairman of the Transportation Committee, I am also a member of five other committees that require my attention on matters ranging from the budget to veterans issues.

  • Thank you for tornado donations

    Editor:

    I’d like to take a minute to thank everyone who was involved with our tornado relief trip to Oklahoma a couple weeks ago.  So many people stepped up with items to donate, words of encouragement, monetary donations, help sorting and boxing, and most of all prayers and concern, that we were really overwhelmed emotionally.

  • Event benefits Big Brothers, Big Sisters

    Editor:

    Big Brothers/Big Sisters is a non profit organization whose mission is to help children reach their potential through professionally supported, one-to-one relationships with mentors. It is one of the oldest and largest youth-mentoring organizations in the United States.

  • Chamber to present third annual Race Fest in downtown

    Carroll County Chamber of Commerce’s Race Fest is the next big event coming up on Wednesday, June 26, on Main Street in downtown Carrollton. Activities begin at 5 p.m.

    This exciting racing-inspired event is the official pre-race celebration held on the Wednesday just before the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series at the Kentucky Speedway.                 

  • City, county laws are in place on pets to protect residents

    At the start of summer, everyone wants to be outside enjoying the warm weather, nature and the beautiful surroundings that we have in our county. Sometimes that enjoyment is hampered by others’ actions.

    It seems as though my office and the office of the county judge-executive have been inundated with complaints about dogs. The complaints have included dogs running loose, people having too many dogs and allowing vicious dogs to run loose. As such, I decided to write this month’s column to clarify the various laws dealing with dogs that we should all live by.

  • CFD thanks community for help, donation to Crusade

    This year’s WHAS Crusade for Children was a success.

    We raised $4,732 during our weekend fundraising activities. This money will go to some very needy causes in and around our communities.

    This could not have been possible without a lot of participation from many different groups and individuals, including the Westside Fire Department, Carroll County Rescue Squad, Boy Scouts Troop 131, Cub Scout Pack 418, Girl Scout Troop 38, and many community volunteers.
