    Editor:

    As I sat on a bleacher Oct. 11 at the Carroll County Fairgrounds around the demolition derby ring, I gazed out at the humongous crowd attending the 2008 Fall Brawl.

    I’ve attended several of these events in the past, but on Saturday we had enthusiasts from Southern Kentucky, Northern Ohio, Indiana and other surrounding states and surrounding counties.

  • Carrollton native appreciates farmers market when visiting

    Editor:

    I would like to thank all of the vendors who participate in the Carroll County Farmers’ Market each week.

    I am a Carrollton native, but do not currently live in the area. However, when I am visiting family, I thoroughly enjoy going to the market to buy fresh vegetables from local vendors. The produce is of lower cost and higher quality than that which is found in the grocery stores, and I really admire the hard work each vendor has put into his or her specialties.
