  • 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.

  • Golf scramble for Ky. sheriffs’ camp a success

    Editor:

    The 13th annual Owen and Carroll County Charity Golf Scramble was Monday, July 14, at Fairway Golf Course in Wheatley, Ky.

    Carroll County Sheriff Ben Smith co-hosted the event, which was a huge success. Proceeds benefit boys and girls ages 8-11 from throughout Kentucky, allowing them to attend the Kentucky Sheriffs’ Boys and Girls Ranch.

  • Thanks for St. Jude donations

    To the editor,

    The children of Debbie’s Daycare in Bedford want to thank everyone who sent donations and gave money at the roadside collection site, along with the ladies at the cemetery who donated to our cause the day of the St. Jude’s walk/trike-a-thon July 11.

  • Reunion organizers seek 1973 classmates

    Editor:

    The CCHS class of 1973 is planning its 35-year reunion in October. We want to have a full house, but there are a few “missing” classmates.  

    They are: James Andrew, Juanita Barganier, Debra Boaz, Charles Clifton, Ricky Good, James Proctor, Charles Taylor and Bill Walters.

    If you know the addresses where these people are living, or how to contact them by phone or by e-mail, please contact me at mbakercchs@aol.com or (502) 499-6110.

  • Banker responds to concern

    To the editor,

    We have received numerous questions regarding bank safety and insurance coverage on deposits. These consumer concerns are warranted, given the highly publicized meltdown of the subprime mortgage market, housing market crisis, IndyMac Bank issues, state of the overall banking industry, etc. I want to take this opportunity to address some of the more frequently asked questions.
