  • Fire department and community volunteers raise $4,800, reaching to meet goal of $7,500

     Editor:

    On behalf of the Carrollton Fire Department, I want to thank the community for its support of the 59th annual WHAS Crusade for Children.

    In 2012, we raised and turned in $4,800 – about $500 above our mark last year at this time.

    We still have time to reach our goal this year of $7,500. However at this point I would still like to acknowledge the contributions of our friends and local businesses that do so much for us year after year.

  • Many are generous and share old photos for book on Carroll County

     So far, I’ve had a lot of great response to my plea for historic photos of Carroll County and all of its cities. The photos I collect will be considered for a book that will be published by Arcadia Publications later this year.

  • Council should vote down long-term stays at new campground

     It is more than disappointing to see that Carrollton City Council is already considering going back on a commitment made to local residents when the concept of developing an RV campground on the banks of the Kentucky River was considered and adopted last year.

    At a special meeting last week, city council discussed a resolution that would offer discounts to those who stay for 15 days. That’s a great idea. It might inspire folks to visit our city and take in our region’s natural beauty for more than a few days at a time.

  • Marriage is not outdated; God created this institution

    I have been thinking about marriage every day for almost six weeks. Not the prospect of getting married—I have already taken the plunge and even have a ring that I wear each day to prove it. Rather, marriage has been on my mind partly because weddings and anniversaries are prevalent this time of year and partly because marriage has been the topic of my sermons in recent weeks.

  • Reports show state on right education track

     For several years now, the General Assembly’s Office of Education Accountability has compiled an annual report that gives us a big-picture look at how our students compare to their counterparts in other states.

    While there are persistent challenges, many tied to poverty, the report has some positive trends certainly worth noting.
