  • Meal raised $1,501 for autism project

    Editor:

    I want to thank everybody who either attended or donated to my autism awareness/spaghetti meal April 29.

    Through the meal, the silent auction items and desserts helped raise $1,501.

    There were some great people helping in the kitchen, serving food and collecting the money. I am very grateful to my church, First Baptist.

    Since 2008 I have been able to raise $10,001. I consider myself the army of one. The more understanding of autism that takes place, the better life is.

  • County Prom Lock-in proved successful

    Editor:

    Carroll County Youth Services Center would like to say “Thank You” to the following businesses who donated to help make the Prom Lock-in a huge success.

  • The EPA is wrong on coal, again

    Since assuming office in 2009, President Obama has piled billions of dollars in unaffordable burdens on electricity generation.  Now his team of regulators at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has launched another misguided assault on coal with no regard for the cost to American families and businesses.

  • Figures show economy appears to be recovering

    Earlier this year, as the General Assembly was putting together the budget to run state government, it was becoming increasingly clear that the state was finally beginning to see some lasting growth.

    That was further confirmed several weeks ago, when one of the state’s economists said that “all signs are pointing to the likelihood that the recovery is here to stay.”

  • More thanks offered for support of Champions

    Editor:

    Carroll County Champions apologizes for leaving a few people out of thank you for the Child Abuse Awareness event. We would like to extend “thank yous” to Muffett Chowing for transporting the picnic table numerous times; the carpentry class at the vocational school for building the table; Dave Huesman for filling balloons with helium; Rodney Wheeler for getting the second tank of helium and delivering to us; and Kevin Craig for donating the Helium. Thank you all. We appreciate the extra mile you went just for us.

    You have a choice. What will you do with it?  The Carroll County Chamber of Commerce Chick-fil-A Leadercast is this Friday, May 4,  at Family Worship Center.  The event theme is “Choices.” 

  • Webster remembered for the many things he did for Carrollton

    Many have shared their memories of Charlie Webster this past week and tonight, as I write, I am moved to share mine.

    In a large way, Charlie was Carrollton to me. I first met him as my pharmacist working out of the old drug store on the square, but soon we connected in a much closer way. Both unrepentant Democrats, we shared our experiences and beliefs in that party over the years. Our stories of old-time politics in small Kentucky towns were made real by our memories of our parents and grandparents.

  • Popsicle fund raising event brought in $40

    Editor:

    I would like to thank everyone who stopped by and bought a popsicle from my grandson David Day or donated money.

    He collected $40 for the two days he was open for business. The money was mailed to Children’s Hospital in Cincinnati, Ohio. Thank you all again.
