Today's Opinions

  • Where is aid for people who lost food to storm?

    Editor:

    Why is it, when the electric was out long enough to ruin food in everyone’s refrigerator, that only welfare recipients get their food replaced?

    What about the families who live week to week that have children to feed? What about the senior citizens who buy their groceries once a month? The food is spoiled, and now they have no way to replace it until next month.

    I know of one welfare mother that gets $800 a month in food stamps, yes I said $800 a month, and is getting another $800 to replace the food she lost.

  • Volunteers made meals possible

    Editor:

    I want to thank Kenneth Kemble, Jacob Kemble, Tonya Edens, Mabel Parrish and Wesley Richmond for donating their time helping me at the Seventh Annual Repair Affair.

    Without their help it would have been impossible to feed the 130-plus volunteers who spent Saturday building and repairing homes for the elderly and disabled in Trimble County.

    It was another great year for us.

  • Mayor thanks all who aided in storm cleanup

    Editor:

     

    I want to express my deep appreciation to all who helped with the cleanup of the debris left by the [Sept. 14] storm.

    The City of Carrollton has never had such a windstorm before. Trees and limbs were everywhere: in the streets, in yards, on homes and on other buildings. The most amazing thing to me was that as bad as the storm was, all the streets in Carrollton were open (except the corner of Seventh and Sycamore) by six o’clock Sunday evening. People seemed to appear from everywhere with chainsaws to help clear the streets.  

  • Shop with a Cop raising funds for Christmas 2008

    Editor:

    Recently, the Carrollton Police Department and Carroll County Detention Center have been conducting our fund-raisers in an effort to raise money for our annual Shop With A Cop Program.

    This upcoming Christmas will be our eighth straight year for holding the event. Over the past seven years. we have assisted 432 children in the community and have spent $85,605 to ensure that they have an enjoyable Christmas.

  • If I’m selling used cars, the man at the auto lot might as well sell goats

    If you were looking for a quality new or used car last week, I was just the person to call.

    Or at least that is what prospective buyers must have thought, as my cell phone number appeared in 23 Louisville newspaper used car classified ads for three consecutive days.

    And by the end of those three days, the sales manager at a local car dealership almost went into the business of selling goats.

    Monday morning, the first call came shortly after 7 a.m. A polite young woman inquired about the Ford Mustang I had advertised for sale. I assumed it was a wrong number.
