  • Editor: My wife and I visited here two years ago looking for a place to relocate our business. We fell in love with the small town of Carrollton. We knew this is where we wanted to call home. The small town charm was only surpassed by the warmth of the people who live here, which brings me to the point of this letter. One of the first people we met here was Ben Smith our sheriff

  • Editor: Why I chose to support Autism as a charity is a question some of you may be asking yourself now. I choose to support autism because it is very close to my heart. This disorder affects my own family. My son was diagnosed with this disorder 10 years ago. One in 110 children is diagnosed with autism (this figure used to be one in 150 ch

  • Editor: My name is Joe Creager, and I am the head track coach at Carroll County High School. In the past few years there has been a lot of turnover in coaching and because of that we have lost track of the school track records.  I am looking for anyone who used to work as a coach, athletic director, principal, athlete or parent and mig

We would like to say a big thank you for helping make the chili supper at News Auction for Carroll County Animal Support on March 13, 2010 a huge success. First, I would like to say thank

  • Ahh, spring! The weather, so far, has been really beautiful and I’m enjoying it despite the allergies that go along with re-awakening nature. It is literally a joy to go outside to cover sports and other events. I even walked with my camera bag to the courthouse Tuesday to take photos of a two-vehicle wreck at the intersection there. (

  • Editor: The Carrollton Main Street Program would like to express its sincere thanks to all who helped to make this year’s Easter on the Square a huge success.

  • Children all over the United States await the advent of spring and the beginning of the baseball season. High school all the way down to t-ball teams are being selected and play is beginning on the many ball fields around Carroll County. This past weekend my husband Jim and I had a wonderful opportunity to see the purest form of baseball on

  • Editor: The price tag of a prom dress can range from $200 to $400 and higher. The accessories, tickets, transportation, flowers, hair, makeup, and nails included can exceed more than $1,000.00. Many high school girls are forced to pass on this rite of passage. We were told of a program called Cinderella’s Closet in Lakeside Park, Ky.,

  • It must be spring, because I was in rare form over the weekend. I took Friday off as a vacation day and set to work cleaning our home. Boy, did it feel good, too. I have to admit that I am one of the least motivated housekeepers I know. I don’t really know why. Mom always kept our house neat. She was a stay-at-home mom for most of my childhood, so that could explain some of

  • When I returned home to Ohio for visits from Connecticut, where I had moved for a job in the late 1980s, my sisters would make fun of me for locking my car.  Since 1966, when I was almost 4, we lived in the small town of Convoy, Ohio. Population about 1,000, during my childhood. There was very little crime at the time; the most egregious incidents I recall being curse words s

  • Editor:

    The Bedford Cemetery Board would like to remind everyone that mowing season begins in April.

  • Trimble Emergency Management Director   March is severe-storm awareness month. Severe storms can strike at any time, causing long-lasting effects on the lives of our citizens. Through my office, the Kentucky Division of Emergency Management works to prepare and protect Trimble County residents from all hazards and disasters. As we saw recently, severe thunderstorms can bring

  • Editor: For several weeks, public service announcements have stressed the importance of completing the 2010 census form which is arriving in the mail now. It is vital that we participate. There is much at stake. Billions of your tax dollars will be divided among the states based on census results. Funding for education, transportation, Medi

  • Editor:     How many people opened their Carrollton Utilities bill and found a whopper? I got my bill on Friday morning and found that I had used four times more than the previous month.  I immediately called and was told that “Well, you know, it was pretty cold last month.”  They wer

  • Editor: I just wanted to express my sincere appreciation and gratitude to Carroll County Memorial Hospital employees and the community for coming together and making the benefit for Portia Stangle such a huge success. I first want to thank the Relevant Church members and Pastor Mendenhall for the generous use of their beautiful facilities.

  • Kentucky and Indiana legislators are working now to determine how to pay their share of the $111 million not funded by the federal government for the Milton-Madison Bridge project. The good news is each state has agreed to foot half of the bill; the Kentucky House of Representatives included Kentucky’s share in its version of the state

  • Editor: I just want to publicly thank our mail carriers for their efforts to deliver the mail in such treacherous conditions last month.  I could not get out for three days and yet our carrier, Lori, somehow managed to deliver our mail. I truly did not expect it to be there, but to my amazement it was! Hopefully our postal service did not force their employees to risk thei

  • Editor: When I graduated from Carroll County High School in 2004, I moved to college and haven’t moved back to Carrollton since. I still call it my hometown as I believe it is important to remember your roots, not to mention the fact that there are some people there I consider very dear to me. Throughout the past five years I have encountered many opinions about the small t
