    Here’s a question for you: What is God like? From your gut, how would you characterize him?

  • Lady Panthers give up one-run lead in seventh, fall 9-5

    Carroll County was able to overcome two first inning errors and carried a 3-2 lead into the top of the seventh inning. Unfortunately the seventh inning was not kind as an error on the first batter led to four more errors as Boone County scored seven runs to take a 9-3 lead. The Lady Panthers made a little noise in the bottom of the seventh, but Boone held on for a 9-5 victory March 23.

    Parents and community members had the opportunity to view a documentary Monday, March 20, that offers a look at a new learning process — one that is much like a successful one that is already in place in Carroll County serving students from five counties.

    Carroll County Board of Education hosted a screening of the documentary “Most Likely to Succeed,” at the Carroll County Middle School auditorium. While turnout was less than stellar, most of those in attendance agreed that parents, and community members, should see this film.
