  • Community needs more sheriff’s deputies

    Editor:
    The Fiscal Court needs a plan of action to show how another sheriff would benefit the community?
    Just read the newspaper or watch the television news to know of the drug and criminal activity increasing in Carroll County. Go to your local city/commission meetings and hear the frustrations of the citizens trying to deal with these situations.

  • Childhood mortality continues its decline with state’s efforts

    From a historical perspective, one of our country’s greatest success stories over the last century has been the steep decline in childhood mortality.
    Between 1907 and 2007, the number of children who did not make it to their fifth birthday dropped from about 1,400 out of every 100,000 to less than 30, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.  For those ages five to 14, the mortality rate went from 307 to 15.

  • Conference provides insight into battle with drug epidemic

    As you’re reading this, as your Champions for a Drug Free Carroll County Coordinator, I’m with assistant coordinator Kimberly Fain finishing up our last day of Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America training.

  • Education was focus of this year’s budget

    When it comes to budgets, there is one big difference between the federal government and the states: The states balance theirs at the end of the fiscal year.

    It can be a difficult task, especially when the economy is down.  Kentucky and nearly 20 other states have an added challenge as well, because they approve their budgets in two-year increments.  In our case, that means we have to peer more than 30 months into the future before determining how much money is expected to be available.

  • Try marinating meat, veggies, fruit before grilling

    Hello once again, my friends. I’m here typing this article on another warm, sunny day.

    Alright, I admit, it’s only warm and sunny because it’s 8 a.m. Hot and sunny would be a more accurate description. Oh well, its July, so I guess we are getting what we should expect. No matter how hot it gets, I never stop thinking about food.

    In the past few articles I’ve touched a little on grilling. Summer is grilling season, so I thought I would expound on that a bit.
