  • Carroll boys soccer drops home opener to North Oldham, 7-1

    The Carroll County boys soccer team led North Oldham for about 24 minutes during the first half, but were unable to keep up in the second half, falling 7-1, Aug. 23.

    Senior David Marshall got Carroll County on the board first in the eighth minute. Felix Avila passed the ball up and over the North Oldham defense, and Marshall outhustled everyone to get to the ball first. The keeper came out to attempt to retrieve the ball, but Marshall maneuvered around him and scored, right to left.

  • Panthers soccer comes close, but falls to Shelby

    The Panthers soccer team was four minutes away from tying or defeating the Shelby County Rockets for the first time in program history. Unfortunately for Carroll County, it wasn’t meant to be, as Caleb Patten scored what would be the game-winner on a through pass, 3-2, Tuesday, Aug. 30.

    “We did a lot better of controlling the ball,” head coach Kevin States said. “We took it to them. The past few games we’ve let the other team take it to us, and we did a good job today of staying on top. We were unlucky to not win.”

  • Carroll loses to Calvary Christian, 4-2
  • Lady Panthers fall to visiting Bellevue Tigers, 2-1

    Despite logging a season-high 27 kills, Carroll County lost its home match to Bellevue 2-1 (22-25, 25-23, 17-25) on Aug. 24.

    Serve-receive was the difference in game one, as the Lady Panthers had seven errors, along with seven dig errors.

    “They had a lot of decent servers, some with a jump serve that floated and our defense didn’t adjust quick enough, so they kept on capitalizing on that,” head coach Lynn Eaglin said.

  • Tips on what to do with those extra summer veggies

    Hello once again, my friends. As I sit here typing this month’s article, the dog days of summer are in full force. Well, I say that, but this morning it’s 64 degrees with low humidity so what I should say is that the dog days of summer would be in full force. Would be if we had normal weather patterns anymore, that is. What is in full force for certain is that most of us are over our normal summer vegetable routine.

  • Bumper sticker theology

    On most days as I’m on my way to work I see a car with a bunch of bumper stickers on the back.

    There’s a “26.2” and a “13.1” sticker that means the driver is probably a marathon/half-marathon runner. Other stickers say things like “Easy does it,” “One day at a time” and “Let go and let God.”

    I’ve seen those slogans before and they’re often associated with 12-step programs like AA, although they don’t belong to them exclusively.
