  • First Miss Carrollton pageant a success

    Editor:

    I’d like to take this opportunity to thank some great people that made the month of November 2014 one to remember.

    Huge thanks to everyone that made our very first Miss Carrollton Scholarship Pageant a success.

    The winner of this prelim will go on to the Miss Kentucky Pageant and hopefully even further onto the Miss America stage.

     This was not only a beauty pageant but one of scholarship, style, service and success (the four points of the crown).

  • City deserves open meetings, discussion on EIP oridinance

    Conducting meetings in the open and allowing the public to view how their government works is at the heart of what makes our government work effectively.

  • Ky. has contributed to Thanksgiving

    While the Fourth of July is understandably the most American holiday, Thanksgiving can at least lay claim to being the first.

    Its origin, as even our youngest students can tell us, began long before our independence, and we’re now just six years away from the 400th anniversary of when the Pilgrims and Native Americans held a three-day feast.

  • Scouting for Food proves successful

    Editor:

    The 2014 Scouting for Food food-drive wrapped up this weekend with another successful campaign, thanks to the support and commitment of the folks that call Carroll County home. The combination of school and house-to-house efforts yielded 19,042 items; while not a record it was another fantastic effort. 

  • Smoke, fry or bake: The options for turkey

    Hello once again my friends. Yes, it’s hard to believe another holiday season is upon us. I’m not sure if time is going by faster the older I get but then again I’m not sure that it isn’t. Lets embrace the season and ask ourselves the most important question of the Thanksgiving season: to brine the turkey or not.

  • Study shows violent behavior in schools on decline in Kentucky

    Last week, the Department of Education released its latest annual report on school safety, a study that gives the public a truly comprehensive look at the discipline issues our students, teachers, staff and administrators face.

    Overall, the news is good.  Nearly 90 percent of the 660,000 students who attend public schools were not involved in any infractions in 2013-14, and of the remainder, only a small percentage was engaged in violent behavior.
