Today's Opinions

  • Remembering Evelyn ‘Tricky’ Welch

    I wrote a piece saying farewell to my friend Tricky back in August.  She was moving to a different home, a different job.  Last week I wrote another farewell and was one of many who shared our thoughts at the service celebrating her life.  This week, through the heartbreak and tears that so many feel, I share those remarks with you.

  • Private donations help with treatment of abused animals, stronger welfare laws needed

    Two weeks ago, I was on the scene of a puppy mill raid in Henry County. I saw hundreds of animals living in unspeakable conditions. There were dogs in crates stacked two and three high; in most cases, the animals were standing almost knee deep in a mixture of their own feces and urine. There were cats in crates with litter boxes filled to the brim in waste. They had no water and little food.

  • Thanks extended to participants at event

    Editor:

    The third Christmas wreath decorating contest and silent auction was held by Carrollton Federal Bank on Dec. 9 in conjunction with an open house.  The proceeds from the silent auction went to Relay For Life.

    All of the wreaths submitted for the contest displayed imagination and creativity. It was our honor to display the wreaths in our lobby. They were beautifully decorated and received many compliments by the public. 

  • Rotary appreciates coat drive donations

  • Some ‘wishes’ make progress while others still need some work

    The end of the year is always an excellent time to reflect on accomplishments. And I’m happy to say I’ve seen progress on many of the items that I included on my 2010 Christmas wish list for Carroll County.

    This means some of our important needs have been met, while others have seen the first steps of progress.

  • Girl Scouts appreciate support at holiday event

    Editor:

    Girl Scout Troop No. 337 would like to thank everyone involved in welcoming us to “A Christmas Carroll.”  Not only was our troop very successful, our girls and parents alike enjoyed themselves and we were profitable for our troop.

  • Donations make stone wall project a reality

    Editor:

    On behalf of the Port William Historical Society, many thanks to all of those business and people who helped us with our latest building project. As a result of their contributions the cemetery at Masterson House will be esthetically improved by the addition of the period-appropriate dry-laid stone wall. Perhaps more importantly, the graves within the cemetery will be better protected from Hwy. 42, which is now so close after its expansion. All of us who live and work in Carroll County can take pride in this preservation of local heritage.

  • Boosters thank community, football fans

    Editor:

    Although football season has come to an end I would like to take the opportunity to say thank you to the Carroll County High School football players and coaches for a great season.

    Way to go fellas, 8-2 is something to be very proud of. I also wanted to thank everyone who helped out in any way during the season.
