Today's Opinions

  • Thanks extended for veterans flag project

    Editor:

    I want to thank everyone who has helped me flag veterans graves on the Sunday before Memorial Day.  Each year American Legion Post 41 sponsors this program and has for a long time. This is done with many dedicated volunteers who show up each year without being asked. They just know it happens.

    I have taken care of this for Legion Post 41 for about 15 years and have enjoyed each year.

  • Make a call if unhappy with case treatment

    Editor:

    If you have a child support case in Carroll County and feel like you are being treated unfairly by the case workers — whether you are the one getting or sending support — you can report your issue to either Jim Monk or his assistant Nick Marsh at (502) 732-7009. Just make an appointment.

    Mr. Marsh is new and is changing some things and assures me he will listen to your complaint and look into it. The case workers and other people in that office work for Mr. Monk.

  • Leaders want to beautify downtown

    Editor:

    As lifelong members of the Carroll County area, it is our hope that Carrollton will continue to thrive, and more tourists and businesses will be attracted to our area.

    We are members of the Young Leaders Institute, and as members we were required to do a community service project dealing with our county. The project that our group chose is “the beautification of downtown Carrollton.”

    Carrollton is an amazing town, but it has come to our attention that the downtown area is in need of some beautification.

  • Support for Demo Derby appreciated

    Editor:

    Thanks to all. The Spring Bash Demo Derby was a huge success, a show of this size takes a lot of work and preparation and is not accomplished by just a couple of people. I would like those who worked on this derby recognized.

    First of all, most of our help comes from our families and friends, not from people on the fair board, always seems unless its convention time they have something more important to do.

  • Local support helps tractor show grow

  • Cancer survivors invited to take part in Relay

    Editor:

    We invite you to join us at the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life in Carrollton. This special event is Friday, May 29 from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. the following morning at the Carroll County Fairgrounds, located behind Walmart.  Survivor registration begins at 6 p.m. under the tent by the stage.  There is no charge for survivors to participate, and all survivors will receive a t-shirt and medallion.

  • Suspension came for missing tennis practice

    As a parent of one of the varsity tennis team players that was put on disciplinary action last week, I just want to put the record straight on why these girls were not allowed to play tennis last Monday night against Gallatin County since that was not explained in the article in The News-Democrat or The Madison Courier.

  • Precious areas in county should not be unprotected

    It appears that a liquid asphalt storage facility will soon be built on the banks of the Kentucky River, just outside Prestonville in Carroll County.

    A Louisville company purchased property there and has jumped through the regulatory hoops that will allow construction to begin on the storage tanks and its barge facility on the river.

    But there are many local residents upset with the plan to have barge-loads of liquid asphalt shipped here because of its impact on the rivers, our tourism industry and nearby residents.
