  • It’s great to reconnect with friends

    I think it’s good to reconnect.  For many years I had pretty much lost contact with friends from high school which was sad since we had been a very tight knit group of gals. Some of us were majorettes; some played in the band; some were cheerleaders.  Others, like me (who had failed miserably at playing the French horn) were just in the stands for every ball game and at Dog n Suds afterwards, packed into whatever family automobile available that night. Then we scattered and it was many years before we began to get together.

  • Pageant winner thanks her local supporters

    Editor:

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank those individuals who helped make my experience at The Miss Kentucky State Festival Pageant a successful and memorable journey. First and foremost I would like to thank my entire family for their undying support, both financially and emotionally.

  • Economy is showing improvement

    It’s still early, but Kentucky’s economy is starting to show some solid signs of recovery.

    Late last month, for example, the state’s Education and Workforce Development Cabinet reported that September’s unemployment rates were down in 95 of our 120 counties when compared to September 2009.

    The Cabinet for Economic Development, meanwhile, says that, from the start of the year through September, dozens of companies across the Commonwealth had announced more than $1.13 billion in expansions that are projected to generate 6,600 jobs.

  • Groups offer thanks for successful event

    Editor:

    The Kentucky Kruizers, Carroll County Fair Board, Carroll County Tobacco Festival Committee and the train conductor, Chris Pape and wife, Betty, all pulled together to put on a fun two-weekend Halloween event at the General Butler State Resort Park.

    We would like to thank all the organizations, Chris and Betty Pape, Carrollton Tourism, Butler State Park and all the great volunteers.

  • Legion thanks community for event

    Editor:

    American Legion Post 41 wishes to thank the Carroll County community, especially our veterans, for their attendance at Point Park on Veteran’s Day, Nov. 11. It was a chilly night but we thank everyone would agree that CSM (Ret.) Jimmy Supplee’s vision message and the high school patriotic entertainment was well worth the discomfort.

  • City, county must take action to capitalize on community's potential

       If there is one thing that everyone agrees on, it’s that Carrollton and Carroll County have lots of potential.

    Those of us who have moved here in the past decade have heard this repeatedly. We’re not alone, because life-long residents have heard this throughout their lives.

    Why do people say we have this potential?

    It only takes a few minutes to come up with an impressive list of the items that make this the point of agreement.

  • Thursday is a time to honor veterans

    Nov. 11 is Veterans Day.  On this day every year, we should all take time to recognize the service of the more than 300,000 veterans who call Kentucky home.  These men and women have put their lives on the line to defend our nation.

    As a former Army officer and 11-year veteran, I am committed to supporting and advocating for the well-deserved benefits of our service members, veterans and their families and will continue to fight for all who wear or have worn the uniform.
