  • Gelatin salads make delicious dishes for Derby

    Since spring is here, I thought I would repeat some of the gelatin salad recipes I have previously printed in this column, plus add a new one that will also be delightful to serve for all those Derby festivities coming soon. 

    I was delighted to try it at our condo Easter dinner. It is delicious, and I was so honored to be given the recipe to share with you. 

    The first two recipes are reprints and the newest recipe is the very last one, but not the least because it fits so well with these other lovely gelatin salads or desserts.

  • Raising money for children's hospital

    David Day, 11, of Taylorsville sat outside Carrollton Sheet Metal on Friday, selling popsicles for 25 cents to raise money for the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital.

    HIGHLAND HEIGHTS — Geoffrey Mearns says there are several things he won’t do as Northern Kentucky University president.

    He’ll balk at sitting in a dunk tank during student celebrations, as some colleagues at Cleveland State University have done.

  • Girls fall to Owen in All-A tourney

    The Lady Panthers had hoped this would be the year their fortunes turned around in the All-A Classic tournament. Unfortunately, they will have to wait another year for a chance at the title, as the girls fell 12-2 in six innings to Owen County Friday, April 13. 

    Head coach Dennis Hawkins said his team had the “Friday the 13th Blues.” “We played like it was Friday the 13th,” he said, “and we had two left feet and two left hands.”

  • Lady Panthers dominate Ladycats for ‘sweet’ victory

    Head coach Dennis Hawkins was beaming after the game Thursday night, and for good reason. His softball Lady Panthers had just defeated the Henry County Ladycats 9-1, Carroll County’s first victory in the series since 2003.

    “It’s sweet, that’s all I can say is sweet,” Hawkins said. “That was a district game, and the girls earned it. They just played softball.”
