  • State shows progress in ‘going green’ effort

    When it comes to being “green,” Kentucky is taking a leading role in proving that, environmentally speaking, less is really more.

    Our recycling rate, for example, has doubled over the last decade, and in 2008, we passed the national average for the first time. Now, nearly a third of our recyclable materials – such things as aluminum, plastic, glass and paper – are being re-used rather than shipped off to the landfill. Altogether, it amounts to about two million tons annually that are being saved.

  • Welch has contributed a lot to community; will be missed

    I have tried to begin this piece several times and after many false starts, I am determined to get it done today. It’s hard to say goodbye to someone who has been a friend for almost 30 years and, coincidentally, has contributed so much to the community. 

    But we must say farewell to Evelyn Welch, who is leaving at the end of this month to become the manager at William Whitley State Historic Site near Stanford.

  • Trimble defeats Carroll 2-0

    It should have been a long, knockdown, drag out, three-game fight between Carroll County and their border rival Trimble County, a team that beat them four games to one last season. Instead, the Lady Panthers stumbled out of their corner and into the ring against a team who would show no mercy.

  • CCMS Panthers beat Bracken 44-0 in Bowlarama

    The Carroll County Middle School Panthers’ football team ran away with their first victory of the season under the Friday night lights, winning
    44-0 over Bracken County in the team’s fourth annual Bowlarama event.

    The annual fundraiser for the football program hosts games on both Friday and Saturday at Panther Field.

  • Volleyball ladies win over Gallatin

    The Carroll County Lady Panthers’ volleyball team roared out of the gates and into the 2011 season Friday, winning 2-0 over district foe Gallatin County.

    “I certainly can’t complain,” head coach Kristen Hooper said. “I think the girls did very well. A couple of first game jitters the first game, but second game, I think we found a bit of a groove.”

  • Cuts impact funds for emergency programs

    Carroll County will see about 24 percent less funding this year from the federal Emergency Shelter and Food Program.

    Judge-Executive Harold “Shorty” Tomlinson conducted a public hearing on the funding program Monday, Aug. 15, to hear comments on the use of the $7,104 allocated to Carroll County this year.

    Tomlinson said $6,104 will go to the Northern Kentucky Community Action Agency and $1,000 to the social concerns committee of the Carroll County Ministerial Association.

    Girls finish in second, Quincy Hogan medals

    The Lady Panthers’ golf team defeated Williamstown, but fell short to Owen Thursday at Fairway. Carroll scored 224, while Owen shot 176 and Williamstown shot 256. 

  • District changes may help Panthers’ chase for title

    The Carroll County Panthers’ football team has a single goal for this season: win a district championship.

    “The margin for error is very small, but we feel that it is time that we take that next step,” head coach Mike Weedman said. “This district is ours for the taking.”

  • Seven seniors lead this year’s Carroll cross country squad

    After a three-year drought, this could be the year that the Carroll County cross country team sends a player, or possibly a team, to the state meet.

    Third-year head coach Joe Creager said he has finally convinced senior track and field athlete Devin Gray to run cross country, which he has not done since he was in middle school. However, Creager believes Gray has the potential to advance to the state meet. The last Panther to do so was D’Anthony Collins in 2007.
