  • Easy casserole leaves plenty of time for gardening

    Now that it is spring, I have started thinking about gardening. It has been such a long time since we last put in a garden, and I cannot wait to get one going where we live now. 

    The ground was plowed a few days ago, so I know we are going to do it. We are planning ways to deter the deer, and I have also been told I must also try to repel the raccoons, possums, squirrels and whatever other critters there may be out there. 

  • Carroll County Junior Panthers
  • Baseball and tennis fundraiser

    Carroll County High School baseball and tennis teams will hold a chili dinner and a dessert auction as a fundraiser on March 27 from 1-3 p.m.

    The cost is $5 for the dinner at the Family Worship Center located across from Kroger on Hwy. 227.

    For more information, contact Family Worship Center at (502) 732-5418.

  • Wise named preseason All-State

    Carroll County High School senior Zach Wise is one of 56 players in the state selected to the Kentucky High School Baseball Coaches Association’s preseason All-State team.

    “Zach Wise is a special player. To my knowledge, the first ever pre-season All-State (from Carroll County),” head coach Jay Jones said.

  • Basketball camp

    Youngsters looking for something to do during Spring Break can have fun and improve their basketball skills at the same time. Hoop Shooters Basketball Camp will be held at Kathryn Winn Primary’s gym Saturday, April 2 through Monday, April 4 from 4-6:30 p.m. each day. Boys and girls ages six to 12 are encouraged to attend.

  • CAC tennis camp
  • Experience on doubles teams a major factor for Lady Panthers

    After losing four of seven starters from last year’s team that finished 7-4, including the top three singles players and half of the No. 1 doubles team, it is understandable to consider the following season a “rebuilding” year. However Carroll County girls’ tennis head coach Larry Morgan is optimistic about the 2011 season.

    “I think we’ll be very competitive with the local teams, and as the year goes on, we’ll get better and better,” he said.

  • Medicaid funding must be resolved

    Last fall, when the General Assembly finalized the calendar for the 2011 Regular Session, this past week was scheduled to be one of the quietest of the year. It was set aside as part of a 10-day period known as the veto recess, which gives the governor time to consider legislation sent to him and then gives legislators a chance to use the session’s final day to consider vetoes, if any occur.

  • Corrections bill passes; state Medicaid fix fails as session wraps up

    The 2011 General Assembly Session wrapped up March 9 with both a success story and a disappointment. 

    The Senate passed House Bill 463, a landmark bill that was the result of a long, thoughtful, and bipartisan study of the spiraling costs of corrections. This is the first serious revision to our penal code in more than 30 years.

    The nationally recognized Pew Center brought both local and state authorities together to recommend several provisions to improve public safety while lowering correctional costs and the state crime rate.
