  • Panthers poised to defend titles

    The Panthers soccer team looks to defend its 31st District and NCKC Conference titles this season. The team boasts a good balance of both experience – five seniors anchor the team – and youthful talent, however the bench will be shallow. 

    “The upside on low numbers is we have more quality players than quantity,” head coach Ben Crutcher said. The team has about 25 players. While there are few middle school players, some have never played soccer before.

  • Ladies change things up in fourth year

    The Lady Panthers soccer team will be changing up its style of play this season after three years of relying heavily on its defensive line.

    Over the past three years, the team has depended on the defensive line to be the backbone and feed the ball forward, he said. This year, the team still has a great defensive line, but head coach Greg Damron said he wants to give the midfield more responsibility. The team also will switch to a stopper/sweeper formation. The goal is to control the ball more and translate that into wins.

  • Tips to help prevent fires in homes

     • Clean dryer vents and traps periodically to prevent build up of dryer lint, and replace hoses every few years.

    • Clean cooking hoods at least yearly (more often if you are an avid cook) to prevent a buildup of grease in the traps.

    • Give your appliances room to breath (such as the refrigerator). Pull them away from the wall to prevent the electrical cord from becoming pinched and give the compressor fresh air to cool.

    • Have your furnace and air conditioner serviced yearly to ensure it is in working order.

    The road over General Butler Lake dam will be closed for about 30 days this fall for a project to repair a pipe that controls water levels.

    During this time, visitors at General Butler State Resort Park will have to use the back entrance on 11th Street in Carrollton to access the lodge, restaurant, golf course and conference center.

    In a Monday interview, Kentucky Department of Parks spokesman Gil Lawson said the project will begin in late September to repair a 24-inch pipe in the dam that is collapsing.
