  • The nation, children are contending for the faith

    I am greatly concerned for our nation, our communities and our way of life. In today’s world, there is a tremendous lack of direction, a lack of truth and Godly respect.

    This all can be traced back to when our nation began to wander from the truth, direction and respect from God’s word.  Today we live in a society that puts little to no value on the word of God. On top of that, many today believe that it’s just a book that’s out-of-date, irrelevant to today’s culture, or just a book full of ancient stories.

    The Carroll County High School track and field team hosted its only home meet of the season Friday. The team honored its three seniors: thrower Raenah Hawkins, jumper/sprinter Kristofer Curnutte and thrower/sprinter Brandon Franklin.

    “It was nice to honor those seniors for their commitment to the team,” head coach Joe Creager said in an email. “I would like to thank Mr. Tom Stephens, Mrs. Mandy Wilson and Mrs. Lynn Eaglin and all of the students who came out to help make the meet a success.”

  • Report shows that education ‘pays’

    Over the last generation, Kentucky has seen a lot of success when it comes to boosting the education level of our workforce.

    Since 1994, according to the Kentucky Council on Postsecondary Education, the number of those employed who have a bachelor’s degree has jumped 80 percent, while those with a high school diploma or less has dropped by more than a one-tenth.

    That’s a trend that needs to continue because CPE estimates that, by the year 2020, more than half of Kentucky’s jobs will require at least some college experience.
