Today's Opinions

  • One last push as book deadline looms

    Well, my first draft is in, but I’m still holding spots for more photos – particularly of area churches and scenes of yesteryear from Worthville, Sanders, Prestonville, English and Locust.

    Also, if anyone has old photos of the Butler-Turpin House, maybe before it was renovated, and the Masterson House, perhaps when it was deeded to the Port William Historical Society. I am literally within days of my final deadline, so call me soon.

  • Benefit for injured EMTs Shields, Waltz

    Editor:

    We are having a benefit for Gallatin County EMTs Justin Shields and David Waltz of Carroll County from 5-10 p.m. Friday, Sept. 7, at Hog Wild and Pig Crazy BBQ, Exit 55 off of Interstate 71. The restaurant is located between Big Rig One Stop Shop and Love’s.

  • New faces to write columns in the N-D

    Carrollton may be a small town, but it is full of talented, knowledgeable individuals, and there is always something happening somewhere.

    As your community newspaper, The News-Democrat strives to report on the many goings-on in Carroll County, local news that you cannot find in the daily metros.

    To continue this commitment, the newspaper will begin featuring five new local columnists beginning in next week’s Sept. 5 edition.

  • JCTC welcomes students with eventful week

    Editor:

    JCTC-Carrollton Campus held its first Welcome Week for new and returning students for the fall semester. Events scheduled during the week included an ice-cream social, pizza sponsored by Papa John’s and a discount on meals at Down on Main Street.

  • Big Brothers Big Sisters program needs adult volunteers

    Editor:

    My Little Sister is 8 years old and I am 56. That’s not a big deal to either of us, because we belong to the Big Brothers Big Sisters program. Being a BBBS volunteer is a rewarding way that I can invest in my community and in the life of one child.

    There are currently about 30 Big Brothers Big Sisters in our Carroll County program; and more are greatly wanted and needed. Volunteers can be as young as 18; however, many of us are more experienced. There is no education level required, and volunteers can be from all walks of life.

  • CCAS, Boyd say ‘good-bye’ to Spinner

    I am writing with a heavy heart tonight.  Our Carroll County Animal Support group suffered a loss this past week: little Spinner, about whom the News-Democrat featured an article recently left us. 

    While this little dog had a rough beginning, beginning with being thrown out of the window of a moving car, he had tender love and care, first from Tammie Crawford and for the longest time from Leah Scott Hill and her daughters Savannah and Ashley.
