  • C’ton Idol to pay tribute to wreck victims

    Editor:

    On behalf of the Carroll County Fair Association we would like to invite you to join us for a night of amazing talent and lots of fun. 

    Carrollton Idol is the first singing competition to hit the fair in 103 years. Last year was the first year the exciting, heart-stopping show debuted. It held the largest audience to ever hit the fairgrounds holding more than 2,500 people that night. Season two of Carrollton Idol is predicted to have a much bigger crowd this year. There will be performances by the top 12 finalists.

  • Arts foundation hosts ‘progressive dinner’ featuring music and arts

    The Carroll County Arts Foundation, Port William Historical Society, and the Carroll County Public Library are hosting an event we hope catches on and becomes an annual tradition. 

  • Howe, Winslow brought businesses to Carrollton

    Doing the research for the “Images of America” book was a lot of fun, but unfortunately the format didn’t allow me to put in much information about any one person or event.

    Case in point: Beverly Winslow Howe, whose image appears on Page 56. Howe was a member of a very prominent and influential family that was involved in many businesses in Carrollton. He was born in this city Nov. 18, 1885, to William F. and Louisiana (a.k.a. Louise) Winslow Howe.

  • Big Sister finds many rewards in spending time with her ‘Little’

    By JUDY CHOWNING

    Special to the News-Democrat

    Why did I want to be a Big Sister when I had four grandchildren under the age of four?

    I thought I could give an hour a week to make a child feel as special as I tried to make my own grandchildren feel.

    Tara was in kindergarten when we started meeting at school in 2010. I was babysitting three days a week for two of my grandchildren and had visits from my others regularly I visited with Tara on days that I had off from my Grammy duties.

  • State acts to address cancer stats

    Each year, 25,000 Kentuckians – nearly 70 a day – are given the one diagnosis nobody ever wants to hear from their doctor: Cancer.

    If there is a silver lining surrounding this sizeable cloud, it is that we are seeing true progress in making sure this word is said much less often. Nationally, deaths are down a fifth from their peak in 1991, and most types of cancers – but not all – are in decline.

  • Look for ‘organic’ when buying these fruits, vegetables

     With summer here, we all begin to try to eat more fruits and vegetables for their benefits and light-meal preparation adaptability.

    With that, we have to be aware of the fruits and vegetables we purchase. The Environ-mental Working Group recently published its annual guide to the top 12 fruits and vegetables with pesticides.

    How this
    helps you

    Choose organic produce when buying anything on the dirty dozen list.

  • Governor’s Medicaid decision could provide needed care across Kentucky

    From The Sentinel-News

    We understand that expansion of the Medicaid plan as part of the Affordable Care Act is seen as a political football, a topic to be kicked back and forth across a field of ideology with not a whole lot of regard for the players involved.

    We also admit that we don’t have the sufficient grasp of either the process or economics to reinforce the decision last week by Gov. Steve Beshear to expand the rolls and open up the possibility that perhaps 300,000 more Kentuckians can have access to health insurance.
