  • Rand provides update on Tobacco Master Settlement Agreement

    The landmark 1998 Tobacco Master Settlement Agreement has brought hundreds of millions of dollars to the Commonwealth over the past two decades. I keep up with how that money is spent—in agriculture, health care and early childhood education, as appropriated—and thought you’d enjoy an update, too.

    I was particularly interested to learn that a Kentucky-based company looking to process the fiber of around 750 acres of hemp and the jute-like plant kenaf has been approved for $381,500 in state tobacco funds to expand its processing facility.

  • Mahoney teaches writing, critical thinking through CCHS English classes

    Famous studies performed by social psychology pioneer Solomon Asch show that all it takes to reverse the snowball effect of social conformity is for one person to stand independently. According to Boundless.com, “conformity” is the act of matching attitudes, beliefs and behaviors to group norms. However, students at Carroll County High School are finding their voice and learning how to develop their own opinions.

  • McConnell traveled throughout state to listen to concerns of citizens, leaders

    As a Senator, my job requires that I spend many hours in Washington, but Kentucky is my home and I make it a priority to be in the state when the Senate is not in session. Over the last two weeks, the Senate was not in session so I decided to again travel throughout the Commonwealth as I often do.  Not only is this a great way to engage with Kentuckians from every corner of the state, but it’s also a great way to ensure I can continue my work most effectively as Kentucky’s voice in the Senate.

  • Bevin a craven coward or Cleanup Crusader?

    Kentucky’s top two politicians were a study in contrasts last week.

    U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell, after doing what he called “the single most consequential thing” in his 46 years in politics – securing a Supreme Court seat for conservatives by keeping a liberal president from filling it – drew lots of harsh criticism.

  • Ladies fall to Walton-Verona, 9-5

    Carroll County softball dropped a 9-5 decision to Walton-Verona, April 24.

    This was another game in which head coach Chelsie Roy thought the team was capable of playing better. “What upsets me is our mistakes are what we work on in practice,” Roy said. “We have to get tougher mentally. We cannot carry what happens during our at-bats in to the field and we cannot carry our fielding to our at-bats.”

  • Carroll County defeats Western Hills, 7-2, at home

    Strong pitching and timely hitting will win a lot of ball games, and that was the case for the Carroll County Panthers Tuesday night as they defeated Western Hills, 7-2, at Panther Field. Senior Seth Hicks finished the game with 11 strikeouts, giving up just two hits, three walks and two unearned runs. He also was 3-4 from the plate with a double and two singles.
