Today's Opinions

  • Christmas songs spread cheer in holiday season

    What is your favorite Christmas song? Certain songs are toe-tappin.’ Others stir up strong emotion. But all Christmas music, in particular, is magical.

    Many of us have strong opinions on what we believe is good Christmas music versus just plain obnoxious. But all of them evoke some sort of memory. The magic transports us to another place and time.

    Christmas is filled with all sorts of traditions and memories, and music traditions are no exception.

  • Football thanks Humphrey, Butcher

    Editor:

    With so many negatives in today’s society, I wanted to take the time to bring attention to a positive that exists in our community. 

  • Veteran says thanks for opportunity to speak

    Editor:

    I would like to say a big thank you to Mrs. (Dana) Oak at the middle school. I was asked by her to speak to the student body and staff on Nov. 11, Veterans Day. I was honored by the way the program was delivered. I was asked not to use any salty language. Mrs. Oak, to my knowledge, I was on task.

     

    Respectfully,

    Ronald G. Burgess

    I would like to thank Chris and Robert from Herb Kinman’s Chevrolet for their assistance with much needed transportation help. It would have been difficult with out their help. Thank you and God Bless.

  • Annual Nutcracker Tea a cherished tradition

    There are many times we find ourselves in a constant state of change.  I find this to be especially true in the accelerated world we live in now. 

    The library has gone through many changes in 2014.  Some have been small, some have been big, and some have been epic, like a giant caterpillar. 

  • Kentucky educational system improves in multiple categories, according to Prichard

    As students near the end of the semester, they are invariably starting to think about the grades that will determine whether their Christmas break is actually a joyous one.

    For Kentucky’s educational system, our “report cards,” so to speak, have already arrived.  They came earlier this fall from the Prichard Committee for Academic Excellence, a non-profit organization that has been a driving force behind education reform since the 1980s, and the Kentucky Council on Postsecondary Education (CPE).

  • Important drug legislation upcoming, resources for drug treatment available

    At Champions for a Drug Free Carroll County, we hope that you know by now the premise of our organization’s main focus – education and prevention are always at the forefront of our coalition. We also hope you know that we are just as concerned with other issues as well, such as legislation, addiction and treatment.

  • First Miss Carrollton pageant a success

    Editor:

    I’d like to take this opportunity to thank some great people that made the month of November 2014 one to remember.

    Huge thanks to everyone that made our very first Miss Carrollton Scholarship Pageant a success.

    The winner of this prelim will go on to the Miss Kentucky Pageant and hopefully even further onto the Miss America stage.

     This was not only a beauty pageant but one of scholarship, style, service and success (the four points of the crown).
