  • The Center for Courageous Kids is the happy place for Leah Wang, 9, of Carrollton, Ky. She said it is a place of peace, fun, security, joy, acceptance, love and endless possibilities for her.

    Wang was born prematurely and suffers from under developed lung disease. She is chronically asthmatic as a result of the disease. All the children who attend CCK have chronic illnesses. Wang and her mother Starla said families with chronically ill children have challenges to overcome.

  • A 15-year-old Carroll County juvenile was sentenced Aug. 30, for underage drinking. But this was a unique situation. This was a mock trial for the newly created Carroll County Teen Court, where teens served as the prosecution, defense, jury and bailiff in a case before District Court Judge Elizabeth Chandler.

    While this may have been for practice, it was the last that would be pretend, as the Teen Court will begin hearing real cases in September.

  • By now we have all watched the many news reports, seen the pictures of flooded neighborhoods and interstates, and listened to the stories of survival and rescue that have been brought about by the disaster of Hurricane Harvey. To consider the extent of the damage, as well as the loss that so many millions of people have suffered, is almost too much devastation to process.

  • Dignity is the universal word used most when describing how one would like to pass away. It is difficult to find that place when the family has not had that one conversation with their loved ones.
