    Edtor: I would like to make a correction and apologize for my misspelling of Staff Sgt. Christopher Stout’s name in the Letter to the Editor. I incorrectly referred to him as Staff Sgt. Scott.

    Editor: I had the honor of being at Staff Sgt. Christopher Scott’s memorial service on Friday, July 30, at General Butler State Resort Park.

  • Chaining dogs should be banned

    Editor: I would like to see a ban on having dogs chained. In Carrollton and Carroll County there is no law or ordinance that protects dogs from being chained up 24/7.

    Recently, I heard of a study that says people who multi-task don’t really get better at it over time – they actually lose their ability to concentrate. I don’t doubt the accuracy of this finding. My job requires me to multi-task all the time; I’m constantly switching from editing to writing to laying out pages, all the while trying to keep organized to make
