  • Fundraiser a success for Shop-With-A-Cop

    Editor:

    On Saturday, Sept. 12, the Carrollton Police Department-in conjunction with the Carroll County Regional Detention Center-held our fourth annual Shop-With-A-Cop Trail Ride. It proved to be a very successful venture for our yearly Shop-With-A-Cop event. We had a total of 76 riders and $1,412. was raised to help fund this program.

    We are now in our ninth year of Shop-With-A-Cop and have helped almost 600 children and spent more than $100,000 to provide Christmas to children in our county who otherwise might not receive anything during the holiday season.

  • Housing authority celebration a success

    Editor:

    The housing authority of Carrollton recently hosted its’ 10th annual Neighborhood Watch Picnic. It was an evening of good food, fun and fellowship among neighbors. Attendance increased this year indicating the popularity of this annual event.

    We owe a great debt of gratitude to the Carroll County Fair Board for providing a tent, chairs, drink tubs and ice and to Mike Humphrey and crew for tent erection and takedown.

  • Local taxes increase despite recession

    Editor:

    Here’s the whole country in a state of economic depression. The worst in decades.

    Businesses shutting down, people losing jobs, their homes and vehicles. The President ordered Congress to pass bills to pass out stimulus monies to save banks and the auto industry, which in turn we hope will save homes and jobs.

    There’s talk in the news media that those receiving social security benefits will not see a cost of living increase for the next two years.

  • Fairness of violations questioned in Ghent

    Editor:

    As a citizen of the United States, I was under the impression that everyone was equal with the same rights and expectations to be treated the same as others. However, as a resident of Ghent, I have found that is not the truth.

    I moved into the city about three years ago and the complaints started shortly thereafter. There are members of city council who are constantly looking for something to complain about here.

  • Thanks extended for golf scramble

     Editor:

    I would like to thank all the individuals and companies that helped to make the 14th annual Charity Golf Scramble for the Kentucky Sheriffs’ Boys and Girls Ranch a huge success. Our combined effort with the Owen County Sheriffs’ office helped to raise more than $11,000. This ranch facility allows children, who otherwise may never have this experience, attend summer camp each year and participate in various activities as well as educational classes. Again thank you for your support and help.

  • 20th ‘Bash’ was a smash

    Editor:

    The 20th Annual Bedford Bash was a hit. Also, we raised more than $500 for the needy kids’ Christmas Party from the sale of the T-shirts.

    I, personally, would like to thank the sponsors, merchants, vendors and volunteers for your support of the Bash, and would like to hear any suggestions of ways to improve the event.

    Without your commitment and the help of the bank’s staff, the Bash would not be the event it is. Thank you.
