  • Young racing fan Davis meets favorite driver

    J.T. Davis of Carrollton is a huge NASCAR fan. He watches virtually every Monster Energy Series race that is on television, as well as many of the XFINITY Series and Camping World Truck Series races. He keeps a schedule of the races on his refrigerator, but he can tell you exactly which race is next on the circuit without looking. His favorite driver is Kyle Busch, but if he isn’t racing, he knows which cars Busch owns and cheers for them instead.

    J.T. is also just eight years old.

  • Midway thrills at the Carroll County Fair
  • Willhoite on track to have case dismissed in October

    Special District Judge Karen A. Thomas repeated several times how impressed she is with the work Carrollton Police Chief Mike Willhoite has accomplished thus far with the Carroll County Mental Health Collaborative.

    Following a contempt of court hearing regarding his and CPD Officer Ron Dickow’s actions in the Adam Horine case, Thomas ordered Willhoite to create a community collaborative addressing mental health issues in Carroll County. She wanted Willhoite to reach out to all the members of the community and law enforcement and to be a bridge builder.
