    Editor:

    Losing everything you have in a fire must be devastating and losing it during the holidays is even worse.  

    Thank God that Linda and Herman Smith did not get injured when their house caught fire on Sunday Nov. 23, just four days before Thanksgiving.    

    Herman is a 26-year veteran.  

    An account has been opened at First National Bank of Carrollton for donations.  

    Linda and Herman lost furniture, household goods clothes and everything.  

  • Take time to say ‘thank you’ to a veteran

    A veteran baseball player strides to the plate; the bases are loaded in a championship game. This is NOT Casey at the bat; one giant swing, and the contention between adversaries is resolved. The game is won; the crowd is ecstatic. A veteran newspaper reporter cuts through the rhetoric and sound bytes of a political story:his insight allowing him to see the story for what it reall

  • Defining jargon of bridge project

    Section 106. NHPA. Mitigation. NEPA. These are among the confusing technical jargon that easily rolls off the tongues of those closely associated with the Milton-Madison Bridge Project.

  • River walk needed to make downtown a true ‘destination’

    Potential. Ask just about anyone what they think about downtown Carrollton and you will eventually hear talk about the potential they see in reviving the once bustling business district.

    Situated right on the confluence of the Ohio and Kentucky rivers, downtown Carrollton is at first glance a quaint and attractive area with the historic look of a river town from the past. Many buildings have undergone restoration work to restore the Victorian facades that make it so special.

    But a closer look reveals the challenges that face efforts to bring new life to downtown.
