  • Last season when then-junior Michael Hall set the Carroll County High School scoring record with 21 goals, head coach Ben Crutcher thought soccer could not be beat.

    But Hall proved it could be. By a lot.

    In his senior season, Hall scored 36 goals and dished out 13 assists – tying Brandon Stewart’s school record set last season – and helped his team win back-to-back 31st District championships. He will hang up his black-and-gold Panthers jersey as the all-time scoring leader with 70 career goals.

  • When deciding on a new bull for your cattle operation, remember there is no one-size-fits-all approach.  Buying a bull that fits your needs and operation is very important and decisions will be different for every farm.

    Look-ing at all the traits for each bull you are considering and determining which one best fits your needs is the right approach.  Using tools such as Expected Progeny Differences will help in the decision-making process. Two traits often mentioned by Kentucky producers among the most important are calving ease and temperament.

  • Apostolic church honors veterans at special service

    The First Apostolic Church, 111 Third St., Carrollton, will host a Veteran’s Day program at 2 p.m., Sunday, Nov. 10, honoring our local veterans and first responders.  The program is open for the entire community to attend.  The guest of honor will be Col. Thomas Edwards, the Garrison Commander of the Ft. Knox Military Base.

    The service will include a multimedia presentation commemorating past and present veterans who have served or are currently serving our country. 

  • When it comes to serving at my church, I have two jobs. As I’ve mentioned before, I’m a communion server. I’m also emcee for the monthly senior ministry events, dinners and such. With a microphone in hand I quiet them down, tell a few senior-related jokes, dismiss the people at the tables to go get their food and introduce featured guests.

    Sometimes I refill cups of iced tea or clear plates away.

    Basically, I just show up and try not to mess things up so badly that God can’t fix it.
