  • Editor: Carroll County Special Olympics has had a very successful 2009-2010 sports season. In the fall, we participated in bowling, both at regional and state level. In January, we went to Perfect North Slopes for Winter Games, competing in alpine skiing and snowshoeing. A basketball team with Carroll and Gallatin County athletes, coached

  • When I was a very young reporter living in Fairfield County, Conn., I was able to get together with a good friend I’d met a few years earlier when we were both students at Ohio University in Athens. Penny lived in New York City, and I had always envied her. She was very sophisticated and cosmopolitan, compared to me – a small-town girl from Northwest Ohio. NYC was

  • Editor: This is in regard to the piece put in the paper for the Trimble County Youth League. (See Page 6, June 23, 2010, issue.) In my opinion, this [league] is just for fun and a learning experience for years to come. It’s not that they lost. This is about having fun and learning the fundamentals of the sport. The parents yelling and

  • I just finished the article on Relay for Life. Good job, Trimble County! I want to say thank you to the organizers of this event for a wonderful experience. If you want to spend quality time with your family and friends, form a team and join Relay; while giving to others, you receive so much more. “The Klunkers for a Kure” would like to thank the community businesses,

  • Apparently, hell has frozen over. For the life of me, I don’t have an opinion on anything local today. Huh. Anyone who knows me even a little should find that surprising. I guess that’s summer in rural Kentucky. Not a lot of controversy, now that the Primary Election is out of the way. But, we still have plenty of things coming up, in terms of activities. First is R

  • Editor: When I think of what I am most proud of, it is driving along U.S. Hwy. 42, taking me through each county in the 26th District and enjoying the beauty of horse farms along the way. Their important roles in Kentucky’s signature industry have always been taken for granted by me, until the last few years. The thoroughbred business and horse racing in Kentucky are in dee

  • Editor: You may have heard of Tona Barkley because she and her husband, John Harrod, are local musicians who perform throughout the region. Another reason you may know her is because she is on the ballot to serve as a director of Owen Electric Cooperative.

  • Editor: To the voters of District 2, your support in the May 18 Primary Election is greatly appreciated. I also appreciate the kindness shown during the campaign, as I always enjoy visiting and talking with each of you. Thanks, also, to those of you who were kind enough to let me display my campaign signs, those who came by and those who phoned. I am grateful to my family, who

  • Editor: Why did your newspaper have an article in the Wednesday, May 12 issue regarding The Moving Wall Memorial, yet no information in your Wednesday, May 19 issue - not even in the Community Calendar? For Carroll County to host this extraordinary memorial replica should have been front page of your paper since it was the day before the wall’s arrival. While detai

  • Editor: One of the lessons we all should have been learning through the last couple years is that large corporate enterprises can run extremely askew from the public interest. We have even seen them operate against their own best interests as their executives helped themselves to personal financial rewards while steering their companies into
