  • Legends game honors Coach Coots

    Carroll County High School head coach Jay Jones hit a grand slam in the top of the fifth inning to give the black team an 18-8 win over the gold team in the second annual Bob Coots Legends game held Saturday at Panther Field. The score is especially significant because Coots was No. 18 when he was the Panthers’ head coach.

    Jones said Coots coached in the 1980s and 90s and died last year, which is why the game began. Jones said Coots was a pitching coach, but knew all aspects of the game.

    Zach Wise was 2-4 with two runs; Dillon Craig was 2-4 with an RBI; Stewart was 2-3 with an RBI; Tyler Gross was 2-4; and John Michael Adams was 1-2.

  • Few voters turn out for primary election

    Carroll County voters showed very little interest in the May 17 primary election with only 471 casting ballots in the Democratic and Republican races.

    That’s an overall turnout of 6.52 percent, county clerk Alice Marsh said. That’s off from the last primary with no local races in May 2007 when some 2,200 people voted with overall turnout of 12 percent.

    Marsh said she believes the numbers voting were low because people were not aware of the primary election and the fact that incumbent Gov. Steve Beshear is unopposed and was not on the ballot.

  • Advantage Nab

    Twenty-two teams in four age groups helped raise more than $2,000 in the Kameron Nab 3V3 soccer tournament Saturday at the county park.

    Brian Hedges organized the event, which benefited the Kameron Nab medical fund. Hedges said Greg Damron and Vernon States helped him host the tournament, as well as assisted in publicity and getting the equipment and fields ready to go. The Carroll County High School soccer teams donated the use of their goals and soccer balls, while volunteers helped run the concession stand and referee the games.
