Today's Opinions

  • Nutrition important for fitness

    In this month’s Health Matters, we are going to hit a few topics and tidbits to help with nutrition and training.

    Eggs

    The question arises at least once a week, what about eggs? I love them and want to eat them daily, but should I limit my consumption, due to the fear of cholesterol consumption?

  • Thanks extended to 5K participants

    Editor:

    I would like to thank those individuals that made our second annual Relay for Life 5K a success. Thank you to Wal-Mart for donating bananas to the runners and walkers after the event and to Verizon Wireless of Carrollton and manager Josh McIntyre for providing the “water break” at the halfway point. Special thanks to the Carroll County Health Department for timing the race with their new state of the art equipment and to the American Cancer Society for providing medals to every participant.

  • Vote Tuesday to set county’s future course

    Carroll County voters face some important and difficult choices Tuesday as they head to the polls for the primary election.

    The county will see new leadership at the top with the upcoming retirement of Judge-Executive Harold “Shorty” Tomlinson. Five Democratic contenders want the county’s top job.

    Voters need to select a candidate who can fill Tomlinson’s shoes and provide the strong leadership the county needs. The next judge-executive comes into office with the county financially strong, but facing many challenges.

  • Reader appreciates story on Matson, CAC

    Editor:

    Thank you so much for your article on Christian Academy of Carrollton and Katie Matson. As a parent of a child that attends CAC, I can say with full knowledge that Mrs. Matson and CAC are truly a blessing from God, to have right here in our community. Anyone who hasn’t had the chance to meet the wonderful principal and her staff, it would be well worth the time to do so.

    Thanks again for acknowledging her and the great accomplishments of her 25 years of service to our community.

  • People should show respect for animals

    Editor: 

    What does it say when someone puts antifreeze out for cats to drink, hoping to “take care of” the cats outside? Many of these are someone’s pets. 

    Another individual or group of individuals threw a nest full of ready to hatch goose eggs into my neighborhood pond. I find this horrifyingly cruel. 

  • Grants providing high-quality tools for CCMS, CCHS

    Thanks to more than $20,000 in grants from the R.C. Durr Foundation, the Kentucky Society for Technology in Education and the Kinder Morgan Foundation, Carroll County High School is getting a technology upgrade.

    “We’re very thankful to these organizations for allowing us to give students the tools that they need to achieve their maximum potential,” district technology coordinator Cindy Johann said.  “With these grants, we are able to provide our students with cutting-edge scientific instruments, design software and 3D printers.”

  • Library readies for its summer reading program

    Summer Reading Program is always an exciting time for us. This year is even more exciting because we have new friends moving into our library. 

    We are always looking for ways to provide our patrons with the best library experience possible. As we live in our building, which still seems new to us, it is hard to make changes. But we are going to do it! 

    We are adding some new elements in our children’s area to create a fun, dynamic reading and play space. This will include two new caterpillars that will become a part of our library family.

  • Study to encouraging college enrollment

    It will take some time to gather the information, but one of this year’s new laws has the potential to play a significant role when it comes to helping college students decide which career to pursue.
