June 5, 2013 —
For any young person, part of growing up involves the eventual realization that:
1) the world isn't just unfair, it is often irrational and vindictive.
2) bureaucracies are chock-full of small minds, resentful of their sad position in life.
3) you will often be punished for spirit, humor, and an unorthodox approach; get used to it.
4) adults are not always smarter and more experienced than you; most of them are just older, and have occupied themselves by sitting around, breathing through their mouths, and watching Jersey Shore.
To the East Carter Senior Class: Please don't let these people change you. Accept that the small minds exist, but do not become one of them.
And to the administration: Congratulations! You have taught your students Lessons 1-4 (above) very effectively! Give yourselves an "A".

Are you involved with your local chamber of commerce? Chambers of Commerce are a great way to make business contacts, and even friends.
Alcohol sales would hurt Olive Hill
I am 64 years old and I have lived in the city limits of Olive Hill my entire life. I have seen Olive Hill when it was prosperous and I have seen it when it was not so prosperous.
Against liquor sales in Olive Hill
Along the roadways of our little town, we see signs urging us to vote YES for legal liquor sales in Olive Hill. Sadly, we see no signs urging us to vote NO!
In appreciation of Pastor Barrell
Some members of the Lower Grassy Church of Christ, in my opinion, should hang their heads in shame. On February 23, 2014 a wonderful man of God and their Pastor Larry Barrell was dismissed from preaching.

Commending Carter Nursing and Rehabilitation
I would like to thank a moment and say thanks to Carter Nursing and Rehabilitation for the excellent care they gave my mother.
Thanks for supporting Project Merry Christmas
Another Project Merry Christmas has come and gone. It was its thirty-first year. Over a thousand Carter countians received a good Christmas on Dec. 21 when over fifty volunteers distributed toys, clothing, books, and food in three hours time to over 300 families.
Many volunteers support drug-free event for students
