  • Respect the landscape

    Editor: There are some very disrespectful people in Carrollton. They walk their dogs and let them defecate in other people’s yards, and don’t pick it up. I have a dog, I let out in my own yard to do its job and I pick it up. Be nice and pick it up please. Jenaette Montgomery Carrollton  

  • Panthers soccer falls at home to Walton-Verona

    After playing three games in four days, fatigue may have played a factor in the Carroll County boys’ soccer team’s performance on Tuesday Sept. 14. The home team (8-3-2) lost to Walton-Verona 2-0, snapping a seven-game winning streak and the opportunity to win the conference championship outright. The Panthers still have the opportunity to be named co-champions with Walton-Verona and

  • Pioneers Senior Event was successful community effort

      The 2010 Carroll County Senior Event held Thursday evening was again a big success as senior citizens from Carroll and surrounding counties came out to enjoy “Pioneers at the Point.” We wish to thank the hard work of the planning committee, time given to building the fort, wishing well and other effects for the event.

  • Panthers hold on to win on the road

    Leading up to their contest Friday night, Walton-Verona held an edge over visiting Carroll County even before they stepped on to the football field: the emotional edge. Friday was the first game under the new lights at the Bearcats’ home field, and they had had two weeks to prepare for the Panthers, who were still recovering from their loss the previous week to Kentucky Country Day.

The event came to fruition the first Saturday in October last year and was a huge success. Pastor Dave and Mrs. Willena Finley, present

  • Raiders play strong, but can't break Mustangs

     After last week’s 20-12 loss to Magoffin County, the Raiders came home on Aug. 26 to face off against Bishop Brossart. Despite some well-executed and aggressive offensive and defensive plays, the Raiders suffered another loss, this time 42-6.

    The Alexandria, Ky., Mustangs, one of nine schools with a 2-0 record so far in Class 1A, won it’s first game against Betsy Layne High School the previous week. Next up for the Raiders is an away game against the Henry County Wildcats starting at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 3.

  • Bird’s-eye view of the county worth a moment of terror

    I would have to say that it takes a lot to really scare me. I get creeped out by scary movies and scary novels, but it’s a type of “scary” that I love. I rarely am so scared by them that I lose sleep or have nightmares. There is, however, just one exception: It is because of Barnabas Collins that I
