  • Residents thankful for emergency services

    To the editor,

    On January 29, 2009 our house caught on fire from a kerosene heater. The Milton and Bedford Fire Departments were dispatched to our house.

    We want to thank everyone for the hard work trying to save our house.

    We especially would like to thank Bedford’s Chief Michael Barnes for trying to save our pets. We are very thankful he was able to save our dog. He made several trips into the house to save our cats, but even with all his hard work we lost them. However, we are grateful for his efforts.

  • ‘Grease’ packs ‘em in at CCMS

    It was standing room only during the Friday and Saturday performances of “Grease” this past weekend in the Sam Simpson Auditorium at Carroll County Middle School.

    And it seems the wait was worth it. Audiences were treated to an impressive production with fabulous sets, excellent costumes and outstanding singing and dancing by the actors, all middle- and high-school students.

    “Winning is the only option.”

    That’s the pledge many in the stands will have emblazoned across their pink T-shirts when the Lady Raiders take on the Owen County Lady Rebels Friday night in an American Cancer Society fundraiser.

    As part of the national ACS Coaches vs. Cancer campaign, the two schools will face-off in a triple-header aimed at raising money for the organization that provides services to those afflicted with the disease, as well as money to continue the search for a cure.

  • Confucius, and etiquette, say never poke a chubby bear with a sharp stick

    “I was talking to someone the other day and I said you were skinny. They said, ‘You haven’t seen her lately, have you?’”

    OUCH!

    It’s a good thing that I’m not sensitive about my weight or that could be akin to poking a fat bear with a pointy stick!

  • CASA seeks volunteers

    To the editor,

    Since the inception of CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) in 1985 in Jefferson County, the goal has been to serve a record number of children in one year. With the expansion of the program in Henry, Oldham and Trimble counties in 2007 and the addition in 2008 of Shelby and Spencer counties, CASA has exceeded the goal of advocating for more than 500 children in 2008.

    This is a huge milestone, and we are very excited. Many thanks to the hard-working staff, volunteers and board members for making this program work.
