This year the West Carter High School Community Problem Solving Team is trying to tackle the task of raising reading test scores in the western end of Carter County.
We have paired with the Olive Hill branch of the Carter County Public Library, in order to try and use every possible resource in our movement to get elementary students reading. We believe that children truly are the future. But we also know that if they can’t read, they can’t lead.
The old saying “It takes a village to raise a child” has become more than a saying for our team. We are encouraging the citizens of Olive Hill to take part in our project. Volunteer your time to read at a local elementary school.
Let’s stand together and be the village that it takes to raise our children to be readers. If you are interested in volunteering your time, please contact us at West Carter High School. 606-286-8100.

Students may be disappointed by change in prize
I am writing you today concerning Carter Elementary PTO. I have a daughter who has perfect attendance this year. She has gone all year thinking if she had perfect attendance she would be getting the $100 prize like they gave out last year.
Kids should have fair play
I am just wondering, after attending a few East Carter baseball games, why the kids sitting on the bench never get to play?

Carter Christian Academy would like to recognize the following hole sponsors, donors, and golf teams for your contribution in this year's golf scramble held at Hidden Cove Golf Course.
Responding to allegations about jail budget
I would like to respond to the “endorsement” that road foreman Larry McDavid ran in last week's Journal-Times. I would like to clarify and/or point out the obvious errors within that advertisement.
Pleasant Valley Cemetery in need of funds
Once again we are in need of help from everyone who owns or have loved ones buried in the Pleasant Valley Cemetery.
Exchange student's experience is unforgettable
My name is Eva Olsen. I’m an exchange student from Norway, completing my senior year at East Carter High School. It’s been one of my dreams to go abroad to a different country and learn a new culture. I wanted new experiences and to improve my English.
Political signs being taken down
I have a word for that person or persons who ever is taking down the signs of other candidates for the upcoming primary election. You think that no one sees you?
