    Standby generators provide emergency electrical power during disruptions caused by winter storms and other disasters. However, take special precautions to ensure safe, efficient operation of these generators.

    Purchase a generator that will supply more than what you need, so you do not blow a fuse or damage the equipment you plan to attach to the generator. You will find power information on the labels of appliances, lighting, and other equipment. The wattage on a light bulb indicates the amount of power it needs.

  • Lady Panthers reach All ‘A’ championship game

    A strong second half by the Carroll County Lady Panthers carried them to a 53-39 over the Williamstown Lady Demons in the semi-finals of the Eighth Region All “A” girls’ basketball tournament at Walton-Verona, Jan.14.

    Weather forced the cancellation of the semi-finals on Jan. 12 and the games were played last Sunday at Walton-Verona. The weather has continued to play havoc with the tournament as the boys’ championship game scheduled for last Saturday was rescheduled for Monday and is now rescheduled to be played Jan. 17.

  • Turnovers doom Carroll against Walton-Verona

    “Turnovers, turnovers, and it absolutely killed us tonight,” Carroll County head Coach Brian Crank said after Walton-Verona sent the Panthers home from the Eighth Region All “A” boys basketball tournament with a 80-35 loss.

    Walton-Verona won the opening toss and scored the first points of the game. Carroll turned the ball over against the Walton-Verona press and scored. Crank called time out to settle the team. Eli Yocum was fouled on an inside shot and made one of his two free throw attempts.
