  • Tobacco Fest committee thanks community

    Editor:

    The Carroll County Tobacco Festival committee wants to say thank-you for a great year.

    We extend our sincere gratitude and appreciation to Artic Cat andPaul’s Tire, as well as the businesses, private donors and others in the Carroll County community

    for their continued support. Without each and every one of you, this event would not be possible.

  • Voters: Boot McConnell, put Lunsford in Senate

    Editor:

    It is not for me to presume to tell anyone how they should vote. But I have made up my mind, and will take this opportunity to express my personal thoughts.

    In the U.S. Senate race, I note that Bruce Lunsford has three times visited Carrollton and met a lot of people here. In the 24 years that Mitch McConnell has been in the Senate, I never recall him visiting our county.

  • City’s code enforcement must be more accurate

    Editor:

    We have a concern about the City of Carrollton’s code enforcement ordinance. A few days ago Mr. Zook, from the city office came to our house saying that we had some tires in the back of our garage that needed to be picked up.

  • Story ignored positives of young man's life

    Editor:

    Why? This article is my response to this week’s story about Tommy “Shooney” Jones Jr. that was printed in The News-Democrat. [Oct. 15, 2008, Page 1.]

    It breaks my heart how so many times in a small town people love to print all of the dirty laundry and negative things about people before they have all the facts.

  • All-day event to raise funds for accessible park

    Editor:

    With millions of dollars being spent on negativity, come spend your money where it really makes a difference.

    This Saturday, Oct. 25, is National Make a Difference Day. Millions of people all over the United States will be making a real difference in the lives of others.

    The Friends For Michael Inc., a spinal cord injury organization, will be at the site of the new Henry County Recreation and Services park on U.S. Hwy 421, just north of New Castle, Ky., 1125 Campbellsburg Road, rain or shine.

  • Derby cars shouldn’t be targeted in city

    Editor:

    I may be wrong, but I was under the impression that different events that are promoted in town were to bring in people: the Blues Festival, car shows, the Scottish Weekend and Demolition Derbies.

    When people attend these, they spend money for lodging, gas, food, etc. You get the trickle-down effect, which then helps tourism. Isn’t that the main goal? I think we’re a town not a city, such as Louisville. Some enjoy culture, others derby cars.

  • Amazing trip with amazing people had outstanding results

    Every now and then in my career, I’ve had opportunities to do some amazing things.

    Topping the list, by far, was the invitation to travel to Arizona and the Grand Canyon with the group of volunteers who attempted to take Sarah Service to the bottom of the Grand Canyon.

    From the first time Chris White had told me about the trips, a few weeks before they planned to leave, I daydreamed about going. I knew it would be an awesome experience.

    So, I was thrilled when Amy Hewitt called and said she chose me to be the one person she could take along.
