  • Turning 30 brings ‘lessons’ for life

    Is a minute always 60 seconds? An hour always 60 minutes? A day always 24 hours? I don’t think so.

    Why? Because it feels like time just keeps flying by quicker and quicker every year.

    As I’m sitting at my desk typing this column, my time in the 20s is rapidly fading. If you’re reading this column, it’s over. I am no longer “in my 20s.” I have now hit 30.

  • KIP report finds students try tobacco and alcohol

    The alcohol and cigarette usage by Carroll County students is following the national trend as reported in the Kentucky Incentives for Prevention survey of students in grades six, eight, 10 and 12.

    National and Kentucky trends summarized in the survey report say that alcohol use among 10th graders has steadily declined in the U.S., dropping more than 50 percent between 2000 and 2016. Alcohol use among 10th graders has generally fallen slightly below the U.S. rate and the decline in use has been seen among Kentucky youth as well.

  • If it ain’t broke, God won’t fix it
  • Electrical issue closes Butler Park’s pool

    General Butler State Resort Park has been without the lodge pool for two weeks. Park manager Dave Jordan said in an interview July 10 that voltage was found on the pool’s ground.

    Jordan said the park’s safety director came to check all the parks after they had learned it could be an issue. He said voltage was found on the ground at nine other parks across the state.

    The concern was the voltage could be transferred to the pool water making the pool unsafe for anyone to enter the water said Jordan.
