  • Cattlemen’s thanks those for help with Field Day

    Editor:

    The Carroll County Cattlemen’s Association would like to give a special thanks to Jason and Robin Stephenson for hosting the Family Farm Field Day last Saturday, Sept. 20.  It takes a lot of work preparing a farm for this event.  Their farm looked great, and it was a beautiful day for the event. 

  • Arney thankful for support in transition to new tax rate law

    This year has been full of changes for places like the library.  Any group that can collect taxes or is funded by tax dollars must register with the state auditor’s office and come before fiscal court to discuss their tax rates. This was a new process for us this year, and, with the help of the Kentucky Department of Libraries and Archives and our own Fiscal Court, it has been a seamless transition.

  • Voting is one of the most important rights in both the federal and state constitutions

    Starting this week, hundreds of state legislators from across the country will begin visiting classrooms to kick off the 16th annual “America’s Legislators Back to School Program.”

    Sponsored by the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL), this event initially lasted just one day, but now extends through much of the school year.  While most students tour the state Capitol at least once, often during a field trip in elementary school, this program flips that by bringing state government to them.

  • Mayor: City attempted to clean up mess

    Editor:

    This letter is in response to Dennis Webster’s letter published Sept. 11, 2014, concerning dirt and gravel left in his drive after Harley Drive was resurfaced.

  • Golf carts illegal in Carroll cities, county

     An interesting question was asked of me the other day as County Attorney and I know the same question has been asked before: Can you drive a golf cart on the road in Carroll County? So I decided to research the issue a bit and hopefully answer the question once and for all.

    In short, my answer is “no.” You cannot drive a golf cart on the streets or roadways in Carroll County.

  • Rand reflects on Kentucky’s ties to the September 11th tragedy

     On Thursday this week, our nation will pause to remember those whose lives were lost on Sept. 11, 2001.

    If you are old enough to recall exactly where you were and what you were doing when you first heard the news, it can seem difficult to believe that 13 years have passed.

  • Resident wants mess in drive cleaned up

     Editor:

    It’s been three weeks since they paved Harley Drive, leaving the mess of dirt and gravel in my drive for me to clean up.

  • CCHS students to receive training for new laptops

    All Carroll County High School students this year are getting a driver’s license – a digital driver’s license.  The Carroll County School District is working with the University of Kentucky’s Digital Driver’s License (DDL) program to ensure that the students have the training that they need.  With students receiving new Lenovo laptops as part of the high school’s recent one-to-one rollout, DDLs help students safely and effectively use the laptops for learning.
