Today's Opinions

  • Hobbies highlighted in new feature series

    Do you know someone who is an artist, a baker or a candlestick maker? What about a drummer, an entertainer or a fisherman?

    After two successful years of writing feature stories on Carroll Countians based on their jobs and their first names, our theme for 2017 is “Live Your Passion.” Starting Jan. 26, I will be starting over with ‘A’ and writing stories every other week on people based on their hobbies, collections, side jobs, etc.

  • News-Democrat to begin 150th year of serving community

    Those readers with an eagle’s eye for the little details in each issue of the newspaper might have noticed that today’s volume number didn’t click over to 150 as you would have expected.

    In doing research as we prepare to begin our 150th year of serving Carroll County, we found that the timing on volume switches got messed up back in 1995.

  • Legislators look to begin work on new bills, laws for Kentucky

    When it comes to the legislative process, most of the public’s attention is understandably focused on the first several months of the year, when the General Assembly is in session and new laws are adopted.

  • Franklin thanks community for help

    Editor:

    I just wanted to take a quick moment of time to let some people in the community know that they are so appreciated!

    During the holiday season I was able to participate in a few initiatives where the main goal was to ensure a family’s time during Christmas was happy and plentiful.

  • State should not ease rules covering coal ash storage

    The Courier-Journal

    The Bevin administration’s Energy and Environment Cabinet is proposing a faux regulatory process — “permit by rule” — giving utility companies the freedom to create coal ash ponds and landfills without the need for regula­tory review.

    This is beyond reckless and puts public health and the environment at risk.

  • Kentucky made many advances with positive results in 2016

    During the holidays, most of us probably don’t give much thought to the origin of the traditions common during this time of year.  We put up Christmas trees, take our children to see Santa and sing carols because that’s what we’ve done for generations.

  • Going somewhere warm? Tips to prevent contracting Zika Virus

    Did you know Three Rivers District Health Department offers a host of information regarding the health and well-being of our citizens? Three Rivers District includes Carroll, Owen, Gallatin and Pendleton counties. Each county has clinic services offering vaccinations and more for your family to stay healthy. We also have on site environmentalists, community health educators and other staff that offer classes for smoking cessation, living a healthy/fit lifestyle and so much more.

  • Animal shelter needs to be operated properly

    Editor:

    This letter is in response to the article in last week’s paper (Dec. 8, 2016) regarding Carroll Co. Animal Support.

    First, Mr. Bowling mentioned that the last time CCAS attended a Fiscal Court meeting was in 2015. Let me say this, why should we continue to go when they never do anything? Also we have met with Judge Westrick and Mr. Bowling with our concerns. We have even had Mr. Bowling meet us at the shelter to discuss different issues.
