  • First Baby Bottle fund-raiser success for women’s program

    Editor:

    The first Baby Bottle fund-raiser showed overwhelming support toward Haven of Hope Pregnancy Services.

    Area church congregations took home more than 400 baby bottles on Mothers Day and returned them on Fathers Day filled with checks, cash and coins totaling just over $5,000.

    The money will be used to purchase educational materials and will assist in opening the pregnancy center later this fall.

  • King family reunion was well-attended, fun

    Editor:

    The King family held its 47th reunion on July 13, 56 family members turning out for the event. They came as far away as Greensburg, Ind., and Shepardsville Ky. Some were from Warsaw and Owenton, Ky. Many were from right here in Carrollton.

    There were stories told and old pictures to share of family history past. Many games were played and good old home cooking shared.

  • Fourth Carroll County Reads wrapped up at library

    When I was a kid, I loved to read. I remember spending dark, gloomy Saturdays reading books I’d taken out of the library at school, or our county library – to which I was a card-carrying member from a very early age.

    As an adult, I’m ashamed to say that I’m lucky to read more than one book a year.

    It’s my own fault, ultimately, for not taking the time to do it. The time is there, but the will doesn’t always follow.

  • You don’t have to be an American Idol to take a weird journey through the Bluegrass

    It's true. I could be the next American Idol.

    But that’s only if Paula, Randy and Simon, the show’s celebrity judges, are willing to cruise around town in my SUV.

    My singing voice leaves quite a bit to be desired, except when I’m driving. Prop me up behind the wheel of my Suzuki and I can belt out a few verses of "Bobby McGee" as well as Janis Joplin ever could. I also do a fine rendition of most James Taylor and Lenny Kravitz’s tunes.

  • Volunteers work hard on community events

    Editor:

    As a member of the Carroll County Tobacco Festival Committee, we work alongside the Fair Board to do a few fund-raisers for the year. And we all work as a team to make the events run as smooth as possible.

  • Bible school project aids historic Carrollton church

    Editor:

    The English Christian Church had a wonderful Vacation Bible School last week while using the Power Lab theme. Student average was 26 and worker average was 35.

    A very rewarding part of the week was the Mission Project, which collected $250, plus a special love offering of $300. This offering was presented to the members of the Second Baptist Church in Carrollton to help in the clean up of their parsonage, which was extensively damaged by frozen water pipes last winter. Additionally, the sanctuary needs some repairs.
