  • Sewer issues are concern at detention center

    Editor:

    Something that concerns me (and should the community) has come to my attention recently. I have friends and family who are unfortunately incarcerated in the Carroll County Detention Center. I have learned they have had sewer problems, backed up water, stench and possibly mold.

  • Autism fundraiser proved successful

    Editor:

    I want to thank anyone who contributed to or attended my spaghetti lunch fundraiser for a very special project to research autism.

    I appreciate the support and belief in a cause. I want to thank my brownie bakers. I am grateful to Mary Frances Mefford, Pam McNeal, Marcie States, Nikki States, Lisa Nab and my daughter Emily for helping my fund raiser run smoothly.

    Chris White and Jay Montgomery need a special thank you for their help in my fund raiser.

  • JCTC-Carrollton had a successful Spring Fling

    Editor:

    The JCTC-Carrollton Campus hosted its annual Spring Fling on April 14. 

    This event was sponsored by the three student organizations-Student Government Association, Parent Support Group, and Phi Theta Kappa for the student body.

    Students enjoyed food, a rock wall from the National Guard, and giveaways from local businesses. 

  • Weekend’s offerings fill block on calendar

    Have you ever wanted to test how much you can squeeze into that little box they give a day on a calendar?

    Even the biggest calendar or the person with the smallest handwriting will find it difficult to fit in the array of events that are happening here this Saturday.

  • Reader questions city's bidding process

    Editor:

    Apparently I don’t understand the competitive bidding process.

    The city of Bedford solicited bids for mowing the Morgan Community Center property. I thought the point of asking for bids is to get the job done for the lowest price. However, in Bedford the process works differently. Once the bids are opened, it doesn’t matter who submits the lowest bid, but rather who did the job before.

  • Event at high school underscores dangers of drinking, driving

    A horrific accident occurred Friday afternoon at Trimble County High School, involving two vehicles, three teens, two adults and at least one case of beer. There was one person dead – a woman thrown from one vehicle onto the hood of the other.

  • Big Brothers Big Sisters will be a winning wager

    Lots of folks will be playing the odds this week as all eyes are focused on the state for the 135th running of the Kentucky Derby.

    Everyone wants to pick a winner, but I've never thought the odds of doing that are very good. With 20 horses in the race, we know only one will walk  away with the roses.

    What if you had the chance to wager on something that had odds where eight to 10 of those 20 participating come away a winner?

    It sounds interesting, doesn't it? Even better, it can have a lasting, long-term impact on our community.
