  • A note of thanks sent to Coach Jay Jones



    I would like to take a moment to thank Coach Jay Jones for the wonderful job  he did again this year making the Bob Coots Legends Game such a successful event.

    Even with the rainy weather we all had a wonderful time. This event  means so much to me and to my entire family. 

    Jay’s hard work and dedication  is appreciated beyond words.

  • CCHS senior class gets praise for its efforts


    I cannot say thank you in enough ways to the senior class of 2011. What was done at Honors Day for Noah, I will never forget. This shows respect in so many different ways. Special education kids can teach us all some important life lessons. This is a victory for all past, present and future special education kids.

  • Shelby Energy outing will not include a vote


  • New jobs, revenue rise show economy growing

    It’s still early, but there are growing signs that the country’s economy is getting back on its feet and that Kentucky is poised to help lead the way.

  • Animal Support in need of foster homes


    Foster homes for animals are desperately needed. Every dog that is picked up or dropped off at our local shelter has no chance of getting out alive, unless the executive director of Carroll County Animal Support, Tammie Crawford, rescues them. She has limited space at her home and in her kennels and once she is full and cannot pull any more from the shelter, those left there are euthanized.

  • Firefighters to take part in Crusade for Children June 1-5


    This community has always been very supportive of the WHAS Crusade for Children. As a member of the Carrollton Fire Department, I want to thank you for your past support of the Crusade and, again, appeal to you for your continued support of this great cause as Crusade kickoff is upon us.

    Since 1956 when the first fire department in Kentucky joined forces with WHAS to pledge their support to disabled children, fire departments now raise approximately fifty percent of donations pledged each year in Kentuckiana.

  • Boosters say golf scramble a success


    The Carroll County Chamber of Commerce would like to thank the many sponsors, volunteers, and players who made our annual golf scramble a success. Also, congratulations to our winning teams. There was a two-way tie for first place — Brad McNeal’s team and Jimmy Hayes’s team.    

  • Club holds ninth show: attracts more participation


    On May 6, 7 and 8, the Pioneer Power Tractor Club held its ninth annual tractor show in Carrollton. Despite the weather and rain showers over the weekend, we had a great crowd of spectators and exhibitors.

    We had about 170 pieces of equipment on display and in demonstrations. We had exhibitors from as far away as Liberty, Ky. and spectators from as far as LaPorte, Ind. attend the show. Several vendors were there selling everything from buffalo burgers to handmade local crafts.
