  • Mitchell reflects on what she likes about Carroll Co.


    Good and graciousness of Carroll County, especially Carrollton, as I am only a visitor here.

    I actually moved back to this area after 35 years because I had such fond memories of spending summers in Carrollton as a youngster, every summer for six weeks till the age of 18 years old when I was a lifeguard at the beach of General Butler State Resort Park. Shame the beach was taken away. I still attend this state park often as I have a brick for my deceased husband at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial site. A great work of effort for your city and county.

  • Inaugural Croquet Open a success


    I was worried about the Richard Masterson Croquet Open just because it was our first and you never know what to expect. As it turned out it was a beautiful day on the courts and a fun time for all the people that attended. The weather was simply perfect making it a pleasurable day to be on the courts.
