  • Offering vocal music, other fine arts in local schools a great idea

    At Thursday’s meeting of the Carroll County School Board, there was discussion of bringing more fine arts and humanities subjects back into the schools.

    Superintendent Lisa James said she wants to see choir offered at Kathryn Winn Primary School, as well as the other schools in the district. She says there are a lot of students in the district with vocal talent who would benefit.

    I couldn’t agree more.

  • BLIZZARD HITS REGION

    Crews are hard at work in Carroll and surrounding counties to restore power to thousands left in the cold and dark from this week's snow and ice storms.

    Carroll County Judge-Executive Harold "Shorty" Tomlinson said Thursday morning (Jan. 29) that the National Guard Armory on State Hwy. 227 in Carrollton was opened Wednesday night as an emergency shelter for those who need a place to stay overnight or a place to warm up during the day.

  • Police investigate Baker death

    The Carrollton Police Department is investigating the recent death of Brady Baker, 22, of Carrollton.

    Baker was found unresponsive at 3:05 p.m. Jan. 16 in the Carrollton Village apartment of Latasha Hughes, Police Chief Mike Willhoite said Monday.

    Hughes was an acquaintance of Baker, and he had been staying at her apartment for about two weeks, Willhoite said.

  • Library to display Fothergill’s artistic photography

  • Panthers lose in Class A first round

    The Panthers had all the excitement, noise, crowds, cheerleaders and bands that go with high-school tournament basketball last Wednesday, Jan. 21.

    Everything except a win.

    The Carroll County Panthers hosted the All Class A boys tournament last week, but fell to the Wildcats of Gallatin County in the first round, 42-33.

    It was especially disappointing, because the Lady Panthers had also lost to Gallatin County in the final round of the All Class A just a week before.

  • Reader frustrated with local court system

    Editor:

    I am writing this letter as a tired, disgruntled, and extraordinarily frustrated citizen. As a 24-year-old man, I am proud to say that I have never been arrested or convicted of a crime. I have never spent one second in a jail cell. I have never had anything more than a speeding ticket.

  • Witnessing History

    To say Jim Mitchell is one in a million was definitely an understatement last week.

    Mitchell, a 12-year veteran of the Kentucky State Police, was among more than two million people who crowded into Washington, D.C. on Jan. 20, with most there to witness the inauguration festivities as Barack Obama became the nation’s 44th president.

  • Third time isn’t a charm

    After falling to border rivals Carroll County in their last two match-ups, the Trimble County Lady Raiders were ready for battle last Thursday night.

    However, the Lady Panthers proved to be a force to be reckoned with in the triple-header that ended with the hometown varsity girls falling 43-53, to put the team at 1-14 for the season.

    From the tip off, the Trimble girls showed an abundance of energy at both ends of the floor. The first quarter was back and forth as the Lady Raiders had the Panthers by the tail to keep the score close at 11-12.

  • Lady Panthers scratch past Henry Co. Lady Cats

    The Lady Panthers pulled off a win in a make-up game last week against the Lady Cats of Henry County on a night when shots wouldn’t fall and rebounding was lackluster.

     

    The final score was 48-39 in the Lady Panthers’ favor, but the game played out much more closely.

    Then, in the final period, the Lady Panthers only managed 14 points from the charity stripe.
