  • Delayed holiday event was successful

    Editor:

    This year’s icy weather conditions caused “A Christmas Carroll” to be delayed for a week.  People with crafts, parade and food entries planned for this event and disappointed.  However, safety was an issue that had to be considered. The ice and snow caused the tent where the event was to be held to collapse. Luckily, no one got hurt.

    The Carrollton Main Street Program Committee rescheduled the event and we are very glad we did.

  • 2013 saw growth in community’s efforts to fight illegal drugs

    As 2013 comes to a close, I would like to take this opportunity to reflect on some positive outcomes from the year. Champions for a Drug Free Carroll County is lucky to be a part of such a close-knit community and that is one of the main reasons for our success.

    I have noticed how easy it is for individuals to see the negative aspects and dwell on them because sometimes they might overshadow the positive ones.

    But here, I will shed some light on the optimistic outcomes that you may have subconsciously hid in the background.

  • Holiday brings busy time around state

    It may seem to start a little earlier every year, and it may fatten our waistlines while it thins our wallets, but there really is no time more special than the holidays.

    That is especially true here in the Common-wealth, where there is always something to do to get in the spirit of the season, from Christmas parades and concerts to numerous events at our churches, schools and state parks.
