  • Derby brunch in Florida was a hit with guests

    I am now spending a quiet Sunday afternoon, lounging at the club pool after a wonderful morning of serving a Kentucky Derby Brunch in Florida.

    At least, it was our version of a Kentucky brunch. Everyone was so excited to attend and we were so glad to be able to give them a little of the wonderful Kentucky hospitality.  Some of those attending have never been to Kentucky, but I think they may just make it our way.

  • Ballinger repeats as Co-NAIA Player of the Year

    Campbellsville University senior Whitney Ballinger was named the NAIA Co-Player of the Year and a First Team All-American for the second straight season.

    “She’s the best we’ve ever had, and that’s a pretty good obstacle to get over because we’ve had so many good players,” CU head coach Ginger Colvin said. “What she’s accomplished in three years is phenomenal to say the least. She’s the most complete basketball player I’ve ever seen.”

  • Carroll 2nd, 4th overall in home meet

    The Carroll County High School track and field team was in action Tuesday at home for its first outdoor meet of the season.  The team competed against local rivals Henry, Trimble, and Owen as well as Northern Kentucky’s Holmes High School. 

  • Softball falls 11-2 in season opener

    The Lady Panthers could feel it. After being down 4-0 in the bottom of the fourth, the girls finally began gaining some momentum. However, errors and miscommunication fouled up their chance at a rally. Ultimately they fell 11-2 at home to Henry County (1-0) Tuesday, March 22 in their season and home opener.

    “We stood up to them pretty well for five innings there,” first-year head coach Ken Blair said, “and then we got young girls. They got a little excited, I guess, lost their focus. But I felt like we played pretty well up until (then).”

  • Home runs from Gross, Wise lift Carroll over Trimble

    The outdoor temperature was almost better suited for a hockey match-up than a baseball game when the Carroll County Panthers came to do battle with the Trimble County Raiders on the baseball diamond Thursday. Spectators who braved the cold either snuggled in blankets on the aluminum bleachers or huddled by their car heaters as the boys of spring held a frost fest on the field.

    Catcher’s mitts, fielders’ and batters’ gloves were no protection for the lads as heavy, gray clouds cast a gloomy pall over the event.

  • Veto deal on Medicaid plan ‘is wrong’

    The state Senate adjourned Thursday night having signed the Senate Committee Substitute to House Bill 1, legislation to resolve the Medicaid budget shortfall. Without even a need for a conference committee, the bill passed the House of Representatives overwhelmingly with only two no votes.

  • House move averts Medicaid shortfall

    During the legislative session that ended earlier this month, Kentuckians saw a textbook example of what positive things can happen when both parties in the General Assembly come together and work toward the Commonwealth’s greater good.

    The end result was a landmark law that stands as the biggest change to our criminal code since it was overhauled in the mid-1970s. It showed just how effective the legislative process could be when everyone has a seat at the table and a desire to do something truly meaningful.
