Today's Opinions

  • Writer recalls childhood hero

    It is difficult to believe that 40 years have elapsed since the United States first landed men on the moon, an anniversary that was observed by the national media last week.

    In 1969, I was preparing to enter my senior year in high school. Today, I qualify at many restaurants for the senior citizen discount.

    I was fascinated by the astronauts and the space race as a child growing up in Madison, Ind. I took special interest in the career of one astronaut in particular, after my dad told me the man was from another small Indiana town only 50 or so miles away.

  • Don’t miss out on Second Sunday walk

    Editor:

    I have seen the flyers notifying everyone of the Second Sunday Fitness Walk that is being held on Oct. 11 from 2-5 p.m.

    I hope everyone in the community will take advantage of this event.

    I, along with several friends, attended the Second Sunday Fitness Walk last year and thoroughly enjoyed it.

    The walk was not strenuous and we had time to socialize with other attendees.

     There were drawings for prizes and plenty of water provided.

  • Taxes keep people from ‘owning’ their property

    Editor:

    I want to commend Kelley Crutcher for having the courage to speak out about property taxes.  

    I hate property taxes more than any other tax because you do not really own your home/land as long as you have to make a yearly payment to the government just to keep it.

  • Fundraiser a success for Shop-With-A-Cop

    Editor:

    On Saturday, Sept. 12, the Carrollton Police Department-in conjunction with the Carroll County Regional Detention Center-held our fourth annual Shop-With-A-Cop Trail Ride. It proved to be a very successful venture for our yearly Shop-With-A-Cop event. We had a total of 76 riders and $1,412. was raised to help fund this program.

    We are now in our ninth year of Shop-With-A-Cop and have helped almost 600 children and spent more than $100,000 to provide Christmas to children in our county who otherwise might not receive anything during the holiday season.

  • Housing authority celebration a success

    Editor:

    The housing authority of Carrollton recently hosted its’ 10th annual Neighborhood Watch Picnic. It was an evening of good food, fun and fellowship among neighbors. Attendance increased this year indicating the popularity of this annual event.

    We owe a great debt of gratitude to the Carroll County Fair Board for providing a tent, chairs, drink tubs and ice and to Mike Humphrey and crew for tent erection and takedown.
