  • Softball concession committee thanks sponsors for support


    On behalf of the Carroll County High School softball team, we would like to say thank you to all of the fans and parents that came out this year to support the team.

    This year, we lost our concession stand and have struggled to raise funds for the program. With the help of the following sponsors we were able to make up some of the loss by selling advertisements for the district tournament programs.

  • Team Robbins extends “Thank You” message


    I would like to say congratulations to the Carroll County Relay for Life for another successful year.

  • Volunteers pick up 20 cubic yards of debris at annual River Sweep event on Saturday


    The Carrollton Main Street Program would like to express its most sincere thanks to the volunteers who helped make Carroll County’s Ohio River Sweep 2011 a huge success on Saturday, June 25.

    The 146 men, women and children who volunteered picked up more than 20 cubic yards of debris from the banks of the Ohio River.

  • Customer service key to welcoming race fans

    As our region prepares for an unprecedented number of visitors next week for the inaugural Sprint Cup race at Kentucky Speedway, I hope we offer a warm welcome that makes these folks want to come back to Carroll County.

    Nearly a year ago, Carroll County Chamber of Commerce and Carrollton Main Street Program teamed up to offer Shining STAR training to help us prepare for the week ahead. This customer service program focusing on service, training, achievement and recognition was developed by TOUR Southern and Eastern Kentucky.


    I spent several hours last week preparing my Bible study lessons on the Book of Genesis. It is amazing to compare the story of creation to life as it is today.

    The study on creation helped me, more and more, to see life of God in every one and in every thing. I see the vibration of God’s life everywhere.

    These days, all of us enjoy the sunrise and sunset.

  • First Community Family Event set for Worthville June 23

    It is officially summertime, which means it seems that we are all running in different directions and time seems to be flying at a rate that is unreal in comparison to winter. 

    The sun comes out earlier and stays out later, however that rarely equates to the ability to get more done.  In summertime, we often get so busy that we can forget there are activities going on in our community that we can get involved in. 

  • Broadband access increases in state

    For a growing number of Kentuckians, broadband Internet is given no more thought than any other utility. Like television and electricity, it’s just expected to be there.

    In fact, it can now be found in about 40 percent of the common-wealth’s homes. While that is certainly positive, it’s becoming increasingly clear that we need to see that number grow. According to a Federal Communications Commission report this month, most states have moved ahead of us when it comes to providing access to this fast-speed connection.

  • Bunny’s death leaves woman heartbroken


    At the fair this year, you had a chance to pay to play to win a rabbit — a real, live bunny. I played June 11; it took me $5 from my boyfriend, a bucket of balls and luck to win, and I did. I ran over to the side of the fence where they were being kept.
