  • Holidays bring back many memories

    “It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, everywhere you go.”

  • Mefford praised

    Editor:
    We have a Good Samaritan among us. His name is Eddie Mefford. When he sees someone in trouble, he stops to help them. He is truly a Good Samaritan. Thanks, Eddie. Thank you so much.

  • Board member unhappy with Shelby Energy

    Editor:
    On Nov. 19, 2010, The Courier-Journal reported that the East Kentucky Power Cooperative was abandoning their proposed Smith generating facility in Clark County. The consequence to the member-customers of rural cooperatives in Kentucky is that they get to pay the $150 million already spent in the plant’s development. The reason for this cancellation was that the generating capacity was not needed.

  • Deck out the yard; adopt a snowman; get the holiday spirit

    It’s clear that the holiday season has arrived in Carroll County.
    The first real snow of the season fell Saturday, just as a number of Christmas events were held throughout the community.
    I spent all day Saturday working at A Christmas Carroll, which inspired me to haul out the tree and start decorating our home on Sunday. My tree is up and the remaining Christmas decorations will be up by the end of this weekend.

  • A word of praise for our firefighters

    One of the TV shows I watch regularly is CBS Sunday morning. This week’s program featured a tribute to volunteer firemen and women.  I’d like to add my own praise for these most vital members of our community.
    Several years ago, I think around 2000, I answered a knock at my front door on the Sunday afternoon before Thanksgiving to see a fireman standing there. “Mrs. Boyd, you might want to move your car.  The warehouse is on fire,” he said.

  • Confederate flag doesn’t represent racism

  • Shopping locally will boost our economy

    Everyone appears to be looking to Frankfort or to Washington to take action that will improve our local economy and put people back to work.
    But that’s not necessary.
    With the holiday shopping season here, you can have an impact on the economy in Carroll County by simply spending your holiday budget here at home.

  • Wraps make great use of Thanksgiving leftovers

    Happy Thanksgiving everyone. I am sure you are in the midst of preparing your holiday meal, but it is also the time to take a minute and reflect on the important things in life. I am so thankful for my five perfect grandchildren, three wonderful children, a fantastic daughter-in-law, delightful daughter-in-law to be and a very special son-in-law to be. However, the most important person I am so very thankful for is my husband. He is my rock.

    So enjoy your wonderful day, indulge in the sights, smells and food,  and be as happy as you can. It is a wonderful day.
