  • Large trailer draws attention as it moves generator

    The News-Democrat

    Moving a 375,000-pound generator is a lot like moving a football field — a lot of equipment is needed to get the job done.

    On Thursday morning, passersby and workers were treated to such a sight when one of the longest trailers ever seen in Carroll County began moving a generator from the barge dock at North American Stainless to Smith Station, a member of the East Kentucky Power Cooperative in Clark County.

  • 'Green Ice' creates perilous road surface for motorcyclists

    Editor:

    As a motorcycle rider, I have to be constantly on guard for road hazards that can cause me to lose control of my bike. Small things like loose gravel or animals darting across the road can be perilous for a biker.

    Another peril is being created by some property owners mowing the grass along the roadway. When the clippings are discharged into the road, it creates what we call “Green Ice” and can cause serious injury or death.

  • Writer willing to start ‘watch group’

    Editor:

    We are standing on the edge of insanity.

    We, the common people of this great nation, are all either in awakening sleep stage or brainwashed into believing that this nation represents all that resides within its borders. Hear the freedom alarm clock before you elapse into a brain-dead coma, never again to enjoy the rewards of what our founders envisioned for us all.

    Regardless of the question in Carrollton City Council meeting Monday night, the answer was grant money.

    City leaders indicated that topics such as hiring another police officer, obtaining new playground equipment, upgrading the 911 system, and providing summer jobs could all be addressed with grant money.
