  • Scouts help cleanup after water line break

    Editor:

    The Port William Historical Society would like to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to the scouts and leaders from Boys Scout Troop No. 131 for their help at the Masterson House this past Saturday as we began the clean up from a burst water pipe caused by the recent cold weather.

    Their help was invaluable in getting us started on the renovations necessary from the deluge. Again, to the members and leaders of Troop 131, thank you for your hard work.

    Sam Burgess, President

  • Schools should be closed Memorial Day

    Editor:

    As a retired employee of the Carroll County school system for 31 years, I believe having school on Memorial Day is one of the most thoughtless things I have ever heard of in the school system.

    Memorial Day is the day we honor all the veterans of the United States of America that have served our country for years and years. It is a day of family get-togethers.

  • Board, attorney don’t protect taxpayers

    Editor:

    I am writing to you because I am really confused as to why our school board members and their attorney, who is also the Commonwealth Attorney, did not protect our interest in signing the contract with Lisa James to be our superintendent.

  • Accelerated Learning classes offer students many opportunities

    Many people think the online learning program at the high school is only for credit recovery students; however, this is not the case. I am an example of one of these students who is taking advantage of the accelerated learning program to take classes that I otherwise would not have the opportunity to take over at the high school.

  • Online resources tell some of Dillard’s story

    One of my favorite photos of Ghent is a postcard that features a man named Sim Dillard driving a mule cart. According to Northern Kentucky Views (nkyviews.com), Dillard may have been a mail carrier. I recall reading someplace that he may have delivered one of the Louisville newspapers.

    Quite possibly, he did both.

  • April brings focus to child abuse issue

    The month of April means many things to many people. Some consider it the beginning of spring or, better yet, the end of winter. If you were in my position, April may have a little different meaning: April is Child Abuse Prevention Month.

  • State budget increases funding for education, provides raises

    While several issues remain unresolved, the General Assembly completed its biggest task early last week when it overwhelmingly approved a budget to run state government for the next two years.

    In many ways, this legislation mirrors the proposal the House voted for last month. It gives our elementary and secondary schools, for example, their first real increase since 2008. There is also significantly more revenue for such things as textbooks, school safety measures and teacher development.
