  • Shopping local has a huge impact

    By now most people are making that list and checking it twice, channeling their inner Santa Claus.

    Many people can tell you exactly how many shopping days remain until Christmas. Others, like myself, have lots of people to buy for still.

    Hopefully everyone will try to match up that shopping list with local stores that can meet those needs.

    Shopping local is critical to our community as small businesses are the lifeblood that truly keep us strong.

  • Praise for bridge repair

    Editor:

    To the crew that worked on the bridge going to Worthville. I don’t know who you are but you did an awesome job fixing the bridge.

    Thank you so much. Most bridges you bump getting on and bump getting off but this bridge is so smooth. Just wanted you to know a lot of people out there are saying “thank you”. You deserve it!

  • Keep Carrollton clean, reader suggests

    Editor,

    I moved to Carrollton seven years ago from Pennsylvania and have enjoyed living here, there is so much to enjoy with the two rivers, beautiful flowering trees in the spring, Point Park, and I must say very friendly people.

    Recently I saw an article that stated Carrollton was numbered in the top ten Ghetto towns in Kentucky and I wondered why, when it is such a nice little town to live in.

  • Champions’ focus is on prevention, education

  • Celebrating Thanksgiving in the Commonwealth

    This week, as we gather with family and friends to celebrate Thanksgiving, it is worth noting that we’re just four years away from the 400th anniversary of the original famous feast enjoyed by the Pilgrims and the Native Americans who helped them weather especially tough times.

  • Hornback: Thanks to veterans for serving

    The leaves fell and the weather grew cooler as we transitioned into this blustery November. As Thanksgiving quickly approaches, the Legislature continues to hold Interim Joint Committee meetings throughout the Commonwealth and in Frankfort.

  • Put a stop to harassment

    The News-Enterprise

    From Hollywood to corporate America and from media figures to elected officials, the recent list of accused sexual offenders made public includes the names of some of the most powerful people in the country. Were it not for the abhorrent nature of why their names appear, the list could otherwise be considered a virtual “Who’s Who” of movers and shakers within their industries.
