  • 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.

  • Holiday Food Pantry volunteer opportunities

    Editor:

    On Thursday, Dec. 15, volunteers are needed to pack boxes for food to be delivered for Christmas. Two shifts: 10 a.m. until noon and 6 p.m. until 8 p.m. Come to the Food Pantry at 517 Seventh St.

    On Saturday, Dec. 17, volunteers are needed to deliver food baskets for the needy. Meet at 8:45 a.m. at the Food Pantry to receive a route for delivery. Approximately 50 drivers are needed to deliver around 200 food baskets. In town and in county routes will be available. With everyone working just two hours we can make this project happen!

  • Bank thanks those who attended open house

    Editor:

    Carrollton Federal Bank hosted a Christmas open house on Dec. 9, between the hours of 9 a.m.-5 p.m. The event was held to celebrate Christmas with the community. The event was well attended and received. The attendees received individual gifts as well as homemade refreshments and enjoyed personal fellowship with the staff members.

    The Christmas open house celebration concluded with multiple drawings.

    Congratulations to the winners and thank you to everyone that attended.

  • Kids Count points to progress, problems for state’s children

    For more than a quarter-century now, Kentucky Youth Advocates has taken an in-depth look at the well-being of the commonwealth’s children, giving us a valuable year-to-year comparison in such critical areas as health, education and economic security.
