  • Changes visible after month away; community loses a treasure with Salyers’ death

    I go away for one month and when I get home there are huge silos in Prestonville. I mentioned it to some folks and they didn’t even know about these new structures, but I ran into Judge Tomlinson Friday and he said it’s something to do with grains.  Then I heard soybeans from someone else. So I guess they are grains? I thought they were legumes, but I’m shaky on my agrarian terms.

  • Jesus, remember me when you are in the Kingdom

    We welcomed the month of November with Halloween celebrations. My reflection during this month is on saints and sinners. I got scared several times while running through the streets of Carrollton early in the mornings when I saw ugly and scary statues in front of the houses. Halloween celebration is over now thanksgiving is right around the corner. It is nice to think about the history and spiritual meaning of the annual celebrations.

  • Indians rout Panthers 68-0 in playoff matchup

    The Holy Cross (Covington) Indians ended the Carroll County Panthers’ season for the third time in four years with their 68-0 shutout Friday night in the opening round of the Class 2A playoffs at Holmes High School.

    The Panthers entered the game with the top passing defense in 2A, but was shredded for four touchdowns by quarterback Kyle Fuller. “Their front line on both sides of the ball was very good,” head coach Mike Weedman said. “(We) had opportunities early, and they were just pretty darn good.”
