    The visiting Carroll County Panthers netted 33 of their 44 first half points from downtown en route to spoiling the Trimble County Raiders’ season home opener Dec. 5, 70-59.

    “I think we were 11 for 20 from three at the half. That’s lights out shooting right there,” Panthers head coach Carroll Yager said following the game. “We don’t normally shoot the ball that well.”

    As I go into Cartmell Elementary this month and in January, the students will be given information about the proper way to research and present a speech or a demonstration.

    In February each student will present their speech or demonstration in front of their classmates and community members who volunteer to judge their presentations. If they receive a blue ribbon, they will have the opportunity to continue to the county level and, from there, on to the district and state level.

  • During the holidays, use caution to avoid scammers, thieves

    Christmas should always be a joyous time. Unfortunately, the acts of some tend to diminish the joy that this season brings.  

    At this time of year, some people become desperate and some just prey on the goodness and generosity of others. These people I speak of are thieves and scammers, which technically are one and the same.

    Please be extra cautious this year to not fall for scams.

    At the County Attorney’s office, we get calls every week either asking us if something is a scam or telling us they have been the victim of a scam.
