Today's Opinions

  • Speak up, be heard; your voice can make a difference on issues

     Our voices can make a difference.

    I expressed concern two weeks ago in my column over a proposal by Carrollton City Council to allow extended stays at the new Two Rivers Campground.

    This was something local residents opposed in planning meetings for the campground as the master plan was developed for Point Park. We were assured that the facility would only allow stays of up to two weeks.

    After publication, I heard from two members of city council who recalled this pledge and took action last week to stop the extended stay proposal, for now.

  • Add a side dish that’s easy with potatoes recipe

     Every year,in June, the meeting of our Caby M. Froman Club is held at Harmony Landing Country Club in Goshen. 

    It is always such a fun time for us because we get all dressed up, wear our hats and have a wonderful luncheon — a day out with the girls. This year’s event was even more fitting for the hats due to the fact that our program of study for this year is thoroughbred horse racing in Kentucky. Our head table was a beautiful array of ladies all dressed in pink and wearing beautiful pink hats.

  • Fire department and community volunteers raise $4,800, reaching to meet goal of $7,500

     Editor:

    On behalf of the Carrollton Fire Department, I want to thank the community for its support of the 59th annual WHAS Crusade for Children.

    In 2012, we raised and turned in $4,800 – about $500 above our mark last year at this time.

    We still have time to reach our goal this year of $7,500. However at this point I would still like to acknowledge the contributions of our friends and local businesses that do so much for us year after year.

  • Many are generous and share old photos for book on Carroll County

     So far, I’ve had a lot of great response to my plea for historic photos of Carroll County and all of its cities. The photos I collect will be considered for a book that will be published by Arcadia Publications later this year.

  • Council should vote down long-term stays at new campground

     It is more than disappointing to see that Carrollton City Council is already considering going back on a commitment made to local residents when the concept of developing an RV campground on the banks of the Kentucky River was considered and adopted last year.

    At a special meeting last week, city council discussed a resolution that would offer discounts to those who stay for 15 days. That’s a great idea. It might inspire folks to visit our city and take in our region’s natural beauty for more than a few days at a time.
