  • Four schools get upgrades of $254,305

    The Carroll County Board of Education approved $254,305 in capital projects for four of the district’s properties at the Nov. 20 meeting.

    The largest of the projects is to replace some of the HVAC at the Area Technology Center. The board voted to accept $99,724 bid by ACCO to remove the rooftop units for the classroom wing and route ductwork that will connect the wing to the large unit installed two years ago. Curell said the unit is large enough to handle the duct work and there will be quite the energy savings.

  • Study shows violent behavior in schools on decline in Kentucky

    Last week, the Department of Education released its latest annual report on school safety, a study that gives the public a truly comprehensive look at the discipline issues our students, teachers, staff and administrators face.

    Overall, the news is good.  Nearly 90 percent of the 660,000 students who attend public schools were not involved in any infractions in 2013-14, and of the remainder, only a small percentage was engaged in violent behavior.

  • Ladies will play up-temp style

    Lone senior center Lauren Moore will control the lane and anchor a Lady Panthers team returning six players this season with quality varsity experience.

    “We’re gong to have better overall team speed, which will allow us to press more, which will allow for up tempo-type games, we’re hoping,” third-year head coach Paul Stone said.

    Despite graduating four seniors from last season’s squad, the Lady Panthers have eight letter-winners returning, six of whom played considerable minutes.

  • Shooting will be boys’ strength

    After graduating five seniors, including four starters, the Carroll County High School boys basketball team will look to new faces to step up this season.

    One of those will be Taylor Schirmer, the Panthers’ lone senior. Schirmer played minutes in quite a few games last season and has been working on his shooting and overall game in the offseason, head coach Carroll Yager said. “He’s one of those players that will put a great deal of energy in getting loose balls and rebounds,” he said.

  • ‘Wall of Faces’ serves as companion to memorial wall

    Born in 1962, I grew up not knowing of a time when there wasn’t a war in Vietnam. I didn’t really know what it meant, and I wasn’t fully aware of everything that went on during the late 1960s and early 1970s when people began to protest the U.S. involvement there.

    I have vague memories of watching Walter Cronkite on the CBS Evening News and hearing the day’s body counts from the war. I have even more vague memories of the slayings of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Bobby Kennedy.
