  • CCRTA attends district meeting

  • Truth and Consequences educates students about results of poor decisions

    At the end of March community partners in Carroll County will hold an event called Truth and Consequences.

    The event is a program that is derived from Kentucky’s Cooperative Extension Service in Clinton County, Ky., and is used across the state in many counties.

  • Bill would shut down the federal Department of Education by 2019

    Should a presidential appointee and an army of bureaucrats in a remote office building thousands of miles away decide what values, morals and ideas to instill in your children? I think not. Of all the harmful things our government in Washington, D.C., does, micromanaging education is perhaps the worst.

  • Baseball falls to Oldham
