  • Adapt recipes in new ways, different purposes

    Hello once again my friends. It seems that every month we meet here to discuss my favorite topic; food.

    Yes, it’s that time again and for the first time since I’ve been writing this column I’m continuing with a theme. I tend to get lots of questions about how I come up with recipes or how I adapt certain foods to be different for different settings such as a dinner at home one time and a large party the next.

  • Red Ribbon Week stresses the need for drug-free fun

    As summer comes to a close and school has begun, students are getting into a more regular routine. Here at Champions, we are excited about fall’s arrival because that brings Red Ribbon Week and other exciting events.

    You will get to read more about our Red Ribbon Week events in October’s column, but we wanted to highlight an important part of that week early so the entire community can participate. Since Red Ribbon Week is focused on being drug-free, we stress this message to our students and the community alike.

  • Funding for higher education reaps rewards in many areas

    In the late 1990s, when the General Assembly overhauled Kentucky’s public colleges and universities, one of the reform’s central planks was to improve the level of research.

    To spur that along, the state created “Bucks for Brains” and called on the schools to match that money with private donations, an initiative that has since raised more than $800 million.

  • Rotary appreciates scramble supporters

    Editor:

    On behalf of the Carrollton Rotary, we would personally like to thank those who made donations towards the Carrollton Rotary/Earl Floyd Ford 20th annual Charity Golf Tournament on Sept. 11.  The tournament was a tremendous success.

  • Heroin is a problem

    Editor:

    Concerning heroin, changing the laws is not going to stop the drugs. Everybody needs to come together. What is needed is prayer.

    And a person has to want to change themselves. It’s a heartache to lose a loved one. I lost my daughter Mona to drugs.

    It’s not because a child comes from bad parents. Nobody knows what people go through.

    The police can’t be 24 hours a day. And we need more information through the schools. There is also counseling available in the Carrollton area.

  • Library sees an increase in use by its patrons

    As we ended June, we officially ended our year. I am sure I have mentioned before, we use July and August to grade our performance. For the most part, we feel like we delivered quality service and filled the needs of our community.

    With recent rumors about town and news stories about child abductions, human-trafficking and solicitation of children, parents are scared to let their children out of their sight. The threats are real and more close to home than ever.
