    The Lady Panthers’ defense smothered the Eminence Warriors, forcing 46 turnovers—including 33 steals—as they glided to season-opening 54-17 victory on Tuesday, Nov. 29.

    “We wanted to come out with a lot of intensity and really get after them some and see how good at ball handling they were and see if we could turn them over a lot, and we did,” Carroll head coach Randy Mefford said.

    The Lady Panthers jumped out to a 25-2 advantage after one quarter of play, making a comeback near impossible for the Warriors.

  • Devine stumbles, Lady Panthers fall at Trimble County

    The loss of Carroll County’s Top Gun early in the second quarter contributed to a dismal evening for the Lady Panthers en route to a 53-29 win for Trimble County at Bedford Friday.

    Carroll senior Hannah Devine suffered the injury while driving the free throw lane to the basket. Devine suddenly crumpled with a knee injury and left the game with about six-and-a-half minutes remaining in the first half. Devine attempted to return to the game with 4:10 remaining in the half but the pain was too severe to continue.

  • Panthers ‘never stopped believing’ in heart-stopping win over Trimble

Alexander and his Raiders had watched a 14-point, 57-43 lead gradually disappear over the final five minutes of the game.

  • Heavy rain hits Carroll

    A quick drop in river levels last week prevented possible flooding problems this week as more than three inches of rain fell in Carroll County between Sunday and Monday.

    Carroll County Flood Plain Manager Mitchell Perkins said the Kentucky River had dropped eight feet since last week when it hit flood levels, causing at least one road to close in the county. This made way for this week’s rains and prevented another rise into flood levels.

  • Pearl Harbor coverage sparse in local papers as nation fought war

    The surprise attack on United States military installations on the island of Oahu 70 years ago today shocked the world. While we “remember Pearl Harbor,” there were numerous other facilities and islands involved in attacks by the Japanese military that day. Residents of small communities in middle America were no less stunned than those Americans in the coastal communities who would most likely have had the most to fear of impending attack on the mainland.
