  • Scouts to collect food Saturday


    The Scouting for Food pickup is Saturday, Nov. 19 at 9 a.m. This past Saturday, we had more than 90 people come out to participate with the first phase of the 2011 Scouting For Food effort. These volunteers distributed more than 1,500 flyers throughout the city and some outlying areas (i.e. Hwy. 36 to Hunters Ridge, M&T Road, Indians Hills) – a big thanks to everyone that came out to help.

  • Belcher’s commitment makes family proud


    We would like to congratulate Brittany Belcher, who participated and completed the Susan G. Komen three day, 60 mile walk for a cure in Atlanta, Ga. on Oct. 21-23. We are so proud of her for her determination and passion for such a great cause.

    We appreciate and want to say thank you to everyone that supported Brittany through personal donations, played in our softball tournament, joined in the poker run, and bought T-shirts and to the businesses that helped her reach her required goal of $2,300.

  • Changes visible after month away; community loses a treasure with Salyers’ death

    I go away for one month and when I get home there are huge silos in Prestonville. I mentioned it to some folks and they didn’t even know about these new structures, but I ran into Judge Tomlinson Friday and he said it’s something to do with grains.  Then I heard soybeans from someone else. So I guess they are grains? I thought they were legumes, but I’m shaky on my agrarian terms.

    The Carroll County Tobacco Festival, Kentucky Kruizers, Worthville Fire Department, and Train Conductor Chris Pope pulled together to make the 2011 Haunted Train event a big success.

  • Boyd recounts her experience at Panama City Beach

    Dateline Panama City Beach.  By the time you read your paper I will be back from spending a month down here at my favorite beach.  We lived near here when I was ages ten through seventeen and I have many great memories of family weekends spent looking for shells and riding the waves.
