  • Chocolate-covered cake bonbons are delicious

    While talking to my daughter-in-law the other day, my 17-month-old grandson interrupted us because he needed his Mommy to hold him.

    We kept talking right through his jibber jabber, then she tried to get him to say a word that he had been using that week. All of a sudden he yelled out “Hey, Nonna!” (they call me Nonna). I thought it was my 2½-year-old granddaughter, Sophie; but no, it was Maddox.  Both of us were amazed that he said it, and of course, it made my day. At least he knows who I am.

  • Lowes celebrate 50th anniversary

    Hardin and Katie Lowe of Sparta, Ky. will celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary on Aug. 19, 2011. They were married at Sanders Baptist Church, where Hardin now serves as minister.

    Virginia McDanell Wheeler, sister of the bride, and Jean Thomas of Hodgenville, Ky. were bridesmaids. Joe Lowe, brother of the groom, and Tommy Duncan were groomsmen.

    Katie is a 1957 graduate of Carrollton High School. She is the daughter of the late Everett and Catherine McDanell of Dividing Ridge in Carroll County.

  • 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

    44-0 over Bracken County in the team’s fourth annual Bowlarama event.
