  • God never promised he would give us ‘happiness’

    A few weeks back I wrote about “What’s making me happy,” which got a great response from people.

    Some sent emails or stopped me in the market to tell me what’s making them happy. Seems everyone was riding the happiness train.

    But then someone pointed out that God never promised us happiness and that those who pursue it never obtain it.

    There’s always a buzz kill in every crowd.

    Still, the person had a good point and one worth exploring.

    Both Carroll County squads finished in third place out of four teams. They competed against Henry County, Eminence and Shelby County.

  • Hicks hits grand slam in loss

    The toil of a long baseball season may be catching up with the Panthers. Sore arms and minor injuries impacted their Thursday, May 2 match up with Grant County, which the team ultimately lost 11-8. But head coach Jimmy Ray said he is not worried and was pleased with his team’s heart.

    “We hung in there,” he said. “We were down 9-2 at one time and battled back.”

    After giving up a home run in the top of the fourth, the Panthers answered in a big way.

  • Panthers beat Wildcats to take No. 1 seed in tourney

    Two productive innings on offense and solid defense throughout were the keys to Carroll County baseball’s 7-2 district win over Henry County Tuesday, April 30.

    With the victory, the Panthers and the Wildcats split contests. If Carroll beats Owen in their rain continuation game Friday, the Panthers will clinch the No. 1 seed because the tie breaker is decided by run differential, head coach Jimmy Ray said. Henry beat Carroll by one run, 11-10,  April 9. But Carroll won by five runs.
