  • Tobacco festival committee plans April 5 turkey shoot

    Editor:

    I am writing on behalf of the Carroll County Tobacco Festival Committee. We have had Turkey Shoots for over six years. Some have been successful and some we went in the hole. But, we enjoy doing it and meeting new people. 

    Everyone really has a good time and it’s a lot of fun. We would like to take the time to thank everyone that has attended our turkey shoots and supported the Carroll County Tobacco Festival. 

  • Hundreds take part in local health fair

    Editor:        

    The Carroll County Health and Safety Fair on Saturday, March 28 at the Armory was deemed a success! We estimate up to 400 people took advantage of this opportunity to showcase their products and services; to network as a community; to get information to keep families healthy and safe; and to volunteer.

  • Writer urges county to replace park’s tennis court

    Editor:

    More than 30 students within our school system currently are on the tennis team, but these students do not have a court to practice on.

    They must travel by bus to Carroll County to actually practice on a tennis court. Thank goodness for the kind generosity of Carroll County.

    While I understand the old court was removed in order to provide better parking for the senior citizens, why wasn’t a new court constructed prior to this?

  • Worthville turkey supper date changed

    Editor:

    Due to the ongoing personnel changes, the annual Worthville Fire Deparment April Turkey Supper will be moved to May 16, 2009.

    We hope all will come and continue to support the Worthville Fire Department, as we depend on your support in order to better serve the community.

    Without your support we could no longer function as a viable asset to our and the surrounding communities. We greatly appreciate your support as we go through the “Changing of the Guard” and of gaining new memberships.

  • Job-shadowing benefits students, businesses

    Editor:

    Because so many people in Carroll County have been concerned with the lack of positive role models for youth, as the Industry Training and Development Specialist of the Carroll County Area Technology Center I would like to share with you a unique event that fosters relationships between young people and caring adults.

  • Church isn’t closing, despite rumor mill

    Editor:

    Upon reading his own obituary in a newspaper, American author and humorist Samuel Clemens, better known as Mark Twain, wrote a letter to the editor stating simply: “The rumors of my demise are greatly exaggerated.”

    As the pastor of St. Peter Lutheran Church, located on State Hwy. 36 between Milton and Carrollton, I was rather surprised to hear that, unbeknownst to me or my parishioners, St. Peter Lutheran Church is going to close.
