  • Rand reminds readers of Frankfort successes, urges them to contact him

    When we think about Christmas and its many traditions, we may find ourselves wondering just how long they have been with us.

    The Senate Majority gathered on Dec. 9-10 to discuss the upcoming session and lay out legislative priorities.  The session will only be a 30-day one; we have only a brief time so we have to make the most of it and respond to the issues we heard from voters in the fall.

  • ‘Wish list’ addresses community’s needs

    With Christmas approaching, we all have a wish list that we would like to see under the tree come Dec. 25. I worked up mine a little earlier this month to help those who plan to shop for me this year.

    It was shortly after that I realized I also have a wish list for Carrollton and Carroll County. And what better time to share it than as we close the books on 2010.
