  • April brings Autism Awareness month


    It is that time of the year again. Time for my Autism Fundraiser. It is planned for Sunday, April 10, 2011, at First Baptist Church in Carrollton. I plan to start at 12:15 p.m. in our Fellowship Hall.

    A spaghetti lunch will be served that includes spaghetti, garlic bread, salad, brownies and a drink. Prices are $5 for 11 years old and above, and $3 for children under 10 years old.

  • Family suffers the loss of two pets to traffic


    My 7-year-old daughter and 5-year-old son lost two cats due to people running over them within a three month frame.

    My daughter was in the driveway when the second cat got hit. She said it crawled to hide under one of our vehicles. She went over to it and moved Pumpkin, her family pet, to it’s bed on the porch.

    She watched it suffer and die within minutes. My kids were sad and crying for the second time.

  • Dow Corning donated materials for new roof


    I am writing this letter from the administration and the board of directors of Carroll County Memorial Hospital to recognize the donation of materials by Dow Corning Corporation for our capital roofing project.

  • CCAS works hard to help local animals


    I am writing as a reminder that we are still working very hard in Carroll County for the homeless, abused and neglected animals. The week of April 9-17 is “Kentucky Week of the Animals.” We have put together a wonderful week of events (see calendar in this paper).

  • Carrollton still waits for states to build a bridge to Indiana

    While the Milton-Madison Bridge was in the planning and early construction stages in 1928 there was talk of building yet another bridge spanning the Ohio River at Carrollton. Among the movers and shakers behind the proposed span was Joseph Lyter Donaldson, Carroll County attorney at the time. Donaldson would, in the years to come, serve as chairman of the state highway commission and was the unsuccessful Democratic candidate for governor in 1943.

  • Veto deal on Medicaid plan ‘is wrong’

    The state Senate adjourned Thursday night having signed the Senate Committee Substitute to House Bill 1, legislation to resolve the Medicaid budget shortfall. Without even a need for a conference committee, the bill passed the House of Representatives overwhelmingly with only two no votes.

  • Those involved in search appreciated


    I would like  to take this opportunity to thank everyone that was involved in the search  for my dad, Mitch Vories.

    Special thanks are in order for Pastor Keith Mendenhall of Relevant Church,  Mike and Emily Beard, Roxie McNamara, and to my mother Jennifer Stewart for  putting together a beautiful memorial service for dad. He would truly have  been proud.
