  • Shooting will be boys’ strength

    After graduating five seniors, including four starters, the Carroll County High School boys basketball team will look to new faces to step up this season.

    One of those will be Taylor Schirmer, the Panthers’ lone senior. Schirmer played minutes in quite a few games last season and has been working on his shooting and overall game in the offseason, head coach Carroll Yager said. “He’s one of those players that will put a great deal of energy in getting loose balls and rebounds,” he said.

  • ‘Wall of Faces’ serves as companion to memorial wall

    Born in 1962, I grew up not knowing of a time when there wasn’t a war in Vietnam. I didn’t really know what it meant, and I wasn’t fully aware of everything that went on during the late 1960s and early 1970s when people began to protest the U.S. involvement there.

    I have vague memories of watching Walter Cronkite on the CBS Evening News and hearing the day’s body counts from the war. I have even more vague memories of the slayings of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Bobby Kennedy.

  • Man brought curse on the earth; God is good

    Have you ever been accused of something you did not do? Have you ever been blamed for something that you had no part of? Probably so.

    In writing this article, I want to point out that God sometimes gets a “Bad Rap.” He is accused of destruction, dismay and even annihilation. God gets bad press! Earthquakes, hurricanes, famines, E-bola outbreaks – somewhere along the line God usually gets the blame.
