  • One does matter

    Did you ever get to the end of something and look back and say that could have been better?

    I am sure you are like me; we all have disappointments along with great successes in life.

    This past year has been filled with triumphs and tragedies. A year of unexpected happenings

  • Enforcing the law
  • Tomlinson re-appointed chairman of NKADD

    Former Carroll County Judge-Executive Harold “Shorty” Tomlinson was re-appointed chairman of the Northern Kentucky Area Development District Board of Directors at a business meeting in October. This is his second appointment to the position.

  • Don’t panic, last minute ideas for meals are here

    Hello once again, my friends. As I sit here writing this article I am reminded of how time never slows down. The Christmas season is upon us and, frankly, I don’t think any of us saw it coming. The older we all get, the quicker holidays come around.

  • Second-half comeback too late for Carroll in loss to Gallatin Co.

    After an ugly first half, the Panthers showed some fight in the second half against the visiting Gallatin County Wildcats. But it was too late for the Panthers to make a comeback, losing 62-45 Dec. 16.

    Head coach Brian Crank said he did not have his team ready to play in the first half, but after making some adjustments at halftime, the team came out and played hard.

  • Carroll forces 22 turnovers, but struggles offensively

    Carroll came out against Henry County on a hot streak, connecting on six of their first eight shots. The trouble was the Wildcats started almost just as hot. Down 16-11, Henry ended the quarter on a 7-1 run and took one-point lead into the second quarter. The Panthers were outscored every quarter–including scoring just nine points in both the second and third quarters–falling 61-46 in the 31st District battle.

    After the game, Carroll head coach Brian Crank took responsibility for his team’s loss.

  • Gallatin defeats Carroll, 65-34

    Carroll County Lady Panther’s scored first in the 31st District matchup with Gallatin County Dec. 17, but it would be its only lead as Gallatin rolled to 65-34 win.

    Both teams struggled to score in the early going as it took over a minute and a half before Amelia Napier scored to give Carroll first points of the game.
