Today's Opinions

  • Celebrate Red Ribbon Week Oct. 27-31

    For many people, October is a month of awareness. Whether it is breast cancer, domestic violence or anti-bullying, it is a month to raise awareness and funds for causes that we are all passionate about.

  • Thanks for supporting Woofstock


    Carroll County Animal Support was started 11-and-a-half years ago with a handful of people who saw a need to help the unwanted, homeless and abused animals in our community.

    At that time, we only hoped to be where we are today and to see all the wonderful people who came to our first Woofstock event at General Butler State Resort Park. Their support was, just in a word, fantastic.

    There is no way topersonally thank everyone who helped at Woofstock, but we want to try.

  • Thanks given for helping with car problem


    I’ve always been impressed with the people of Carrollton, now even more so. I was having trouble with the ignition key  in my car. I was parked in front of Picker’s Paradise across from Webster’s Drug store. The owner came out to help me and tried several things, but we couldn’t get it to work. She gave me the number for Chuck’s Lock Shop in Carrollton.

  • Cattlemen’s thanks those for help with Field Day


    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


    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.
