  • Carroll youth baseball teams up with Bambino Buddies to share love for sport

    Saturday morning my phone starts dinging, signaling an incoming text. But it does not ding just once, but 15 more times. By now you have to look or are scared to look to see what is going on. I look down and find that Larissa McKinney has sent a message and 15 pictures of the Carroll County 10U traveling team that had just completed a Bambino Buddy session with special needs children.

  • Fentanyl adds to woes in war on illegal drugs

    FRANKFORT – It has often been said that the war against illegal drugs is an ever-changing battlefield.  When we seem to be making headway on one front, another tragically opens up.

    Over the past dozen years, those “fronts” in Kentucky have ranged from meth and synthetic drugs to prescription pain medicine and heroin.

    According to the annual report the state’s Office of Drug Control Policy released last week, a new name has been added to that list: fentanyl.

  • Organizers plan a ‘colorful’ run, walk

    Join us for a colorful good time. As The Community Health Educator at Three Rivers District Health Department, I am excited to announce the award of $3,000 to promote and host a 5K Color Run/Walk. This will be a new health/fitness opportunity made possible by an Interact for Health mini-grant that I wrote.

    Saturday, July 23, will be the day of the color blast at Kentucky Speedway in Gallatin County as a central location for our serviced counties.

    This will be a brand new event offered to Gallatin, Owen, Pendleton and Carroll counties.

  • Prevent, protect against mosquitos

    As we come up to Mosquito Control Awareness Week June 26 through July 2, enjoy the summer and protect yourselves from mosquitos.

    As mosquitos bite, they can transfer diseases. These diseases may infect you or your pets, and may include West Nile Virus, Zika Virus, or dog heartworm.

    While many mosquitos may not carry disease, the red dot which is left behind is caused by an allergic reaction to the mosquito’s saliva.

    To reduce the risk of mosquito bites, follow the three D’s of the American Mosquito Control Association (AMCA).

  • Support for Mikie’s Ride appreciated

    Editor:

    We would like to thank The News-Democrat. We also would like to thank everyone for all the work they have done to keep the memories of Mikie’s Ride going.

    Thanks to all the people who gave door prize donations, all the people who came to the ride, to those who made donations, Carrollton Lions Club, Herb Kinman Chevrolet and people who cooked the food.

    We really just want to thank everyone for all their love and support to keep our son, Mikie Gividen’s memories.
