  • 'Welcome Bag' donors helped make good memories of Carrollton

    Editor:

    On behalf of the Carrollton/Carroll County Tourism Office, I would like to thank those who contributed to the “Welcome Bag” items distributed to members and competitors at the National Bass Anglers Association fishing tournament May 13-17 at Point Park in Carrollton.

    Because of your generosity, visitors from outside our community received a warm hometown welcome and fond memories. Word of mouth goes a long way in promoting our community, and your support helps to ensure that Carroll County is a place that they will want to visit again and again.

  • Stranded senior hiking group says 'thank you'

    Editor:

    Saturday evening, July 26, around 7 p.m., two tour buses were driving back to Louisville on I-71 South after a visit to Cincinnati’s Union Terminal Museum. On the way, the second bus began leaking antifreeze and had to stop just past Exit 44 at Carrollton. The passengers were a group of physically fit senior citizens, all members of the Second Saturday Serenity Hiking Club sponsored by Unity Church of Louisville.

  • Time to make sure teens know drinking isn’t OK

    Editor:

    It is summertime, and your teens may have more free time on their hands. Most of our teens are making healthy choices this summer – like not drinking alcohol.

    Unfortunately, there are many who do choose to drink. Most young people who start drinking before age 21 do so when they are about 13-14 years old. That is why parents and all adults should send a strong message that underage drinking is not OK.

  • 81 kids caught ‘Bug’ from library’s summer program

    Editor:

    On behalf of the staff and Board of Trustees of the Carroll County Public Library, I would like to thank all who helped make our Summer Reading Program, “Catch the Reading Bug” such a success.  

  • Wanted: Slow-minded man with money or cash-strapped, talented handyman

    I may be a domestic goddess, but does that mean I have to be the female equivalent of Bob Vila?

    My latest escapade in home repair began at 9:30 last Saturday morning. After leisurely crawling from my comfy bed, I uncharacteristically decided to immediately shower and begin a full day of errands. To my chagrin, only lukewarm water flowed from the pipes when I turned the knob labeled “hot.”

  • Girl Scout’s license-plate project comes to fruition

    Editor:

    Starting the week of Aug. 11, Kentucky residents can order the license plate that supports Autism Awareness. It is the Girl Scout project of an Oldham County teen-ager, Natalie Pope. She completed all of the Girl Scout prerequisites necessary, she designed the license plate, she took orders and followed the “red” tape all the way to the end. This process has taken Natalie about a year and a half to complete.

  • Summer program gave artist new experiences

    Have you ever had an experience that made you know you were really alive? I don’t just mean alive as in living and breathing; I mean a time when you felt as though you could do anything you put your mind to?  

    I had this type of experience at Governor’s School for the Arts this summer, where I studied instrumental music on the flute.  The faculty members were amazing performers and teachers. They were encouraging and positive, and helped us improve our music in even the most minuscule ways.
