    The Carroll County boys basketball team finished 1-2 in the National Guard Holiday Classic in LaRue County Dec. 27-29, a disappointing finish after high expectations coming in. But the Panthers may have a bigger problem to worry about.

  • Fond memories of family owned restaurant

    Before there was Interstate 75, U.S. Hwy. 25 was the major north-south artery through Kentucky.

    Midway between Cincinnati and Lexington, my grandfather, John Juett, his brother, Adam, and friend George Trimnell  built a large restaurant, a gas station, and several tourist cabins just south of downtown Williamstown in Grant County.

    They called it the Halfway House and soon it gained fame for the good food at the restaurant (which my grandmother, Holly, ran and did much of the cooking for) and the clean cabins that offered an overnight stay.

    For example, if you asked people at random what they believed is the function of the county attorney’s office, they probably would tell you this is the person who prosecutes traffic offenses.

    Some may even go further and tell you that the county attorney prosecutes misdemeanors and child-support cases.
