  • Firefighters to take part in Crusade for Children June 1-5

    Editor:

    This community has always been very supportive of the WHAS Crusade for Children. As a member of the Carrollton Fire Department, I want to thank you for your past support of the Crusade and, again, appeal to you for your continued support of this great cause as Crusade kickoff is upon us.

    Since 1956 when the first fire department in Kentucky joined forces with WHAS to pledge their support to disabled children, fire departments now raise approximately fifty percent of donations pledged each year in Kentuckiana.

  • Club holds ninth show: attracts more participation

    On May 6, 7 and 8, the Pioneer Power Tractor Club held its ninth annual tractor show in Carrollton. Despite the weather and rain showers over the weekend, we had a great crowd of spectators and exhibitors.

    We had about 170 pieces of equipment on display and in demonstrations. We had exhibitors from as far away as Liberty, Ky. and spectators from as far as LaPorte, Ind. attend the show. Several vendors were there selling everything from buffalo burgers to handmade local crafts.

  • Group not accepting pets from owners

    Editor:

    Eight years ago Phyllis Codling McLaughlin and I started Carroll County Animal Support with the idea to help the homeless and helpless dogs at our local animal shelter. And over the years we have saved hundreds from being euthanized. We get no funding from local, state or federal agencies; we get our funds through fundraising, donations from local industries and some wonderful citizens. We do not have a physical shelter but foster the dogs mostly in my home and boarding kennel and some other foster homes.

  • Memorial Day honors veterans, those fighting for Americans’ freedom

    For many Americans, Memorial Day (Monday, May 30) signals the beginning of summer.  But, more importantly, Memorial Day is a day for us to remember and give thanks to all those who have given their lives in service to our nation and to preserve the freedoms we enjoy.

    As a West Point graduate and former Army Ranger, I am especially mindful this Memorial Day of our troops serving in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, around the world and here at home.
