Today's Opinions

  • Are you reading ‘The Good Book?’

    Recently I saw someone on Facebook make a comment that they didn’t believe the Bible because it was written by men.  How sad.  The Bible states that the words were written down by holy men that were inspired by the Holy Spirit.  These men were obedient to God and the words were written the way God instructed them to do so.  Otherwise, I believe God would have done something about their mistakes or wrong doings.

  • Dog found after letter to editor


    On behalf of Carroll County Animal Support and, specifically, our adoption coordinator and foster volunteer Kim Brown, I want to thank you for publishing the photo and information about our dog that went missing from Kim’s home last month.

    The article ran on Thursday last week and by Friday night, Axel and Kim were tearfully reunited. After a good bath and lots of hugs, Axel is back on his heartworm treatment and is safe and sound.

  • Personal training – Hard is the easy part

    Today the plethora of personal training experts have a lot of differences. On the other hand, they can all get one thing right – making a workout hard! It is not just trainers, it is people themselves. Heavier, faster, more difficult, more props. We as the fitness community certainly like to have fun with the plethora of possibilities. We love constant variety.

  • Local students honored at annual awards banquet

    It is hard to admit that, on a state level, Carroll County has not received the greatest news coverage. Whether deserved or not, sometimes it is hard to see the bad things reported about the community we live and raise our children in. Like many other small towns, we celebrate our victories quietly and together as a community. Last Wednesday was a perfect example of that.

  • Mammoth Cave celebrates 200 years

    Next year, Kentucky’s tourism industry will mark a major milestone when Mammoth Cave celebrates the 200th anniversary of its first commercial tour.

    The world’s longest cave is our country’s second-oldest paid attraction, trailing only Niagara Falls, and it and the surrounding national park have since become a major destination.  It draws more than two million visitors a year aboveground, and about a fourth of those tour the sights below.

  • Thanks to all those who helped with the eighth-grade formal


    The Carroll County Middle School’s eighth-grade formal was held this past Saturday evening and was a huge success thanks to the efforts of many wonderful people. I would like to thank the parents who came out and decorated the gym, as well as those parents who came back after the dance and made sure that the gym was cleaned.
