  • Incumbents file papers for the May 22 primary

    Local voters will not only have their chance to choose candidates to run for president this May, they also will be selecting candidates to run for circuit court clerk and commonwealth attorney in Carroll County.

    Carroll County Clerk Alice Marsh said Monday that other races up for grabs this year in the state include the 4th Congressional District seat now held by Geoff Davis, who is retiring from office. Additionally, Rep. Rick Rand’s 47th District state House of Representatives seat is up for election this year.

  • Redistricting places Carroll in new senatorial district

    Carroll and Henry counties are no longer part of the state’s 26th Senate district. Those counties, which, historically, have been served by Republican Sen. Ernie Harris, now fall into the 20th District, represented by Sen. Paul Hornback, also a Republican.

    Population growth statewide, as documented by the 2010 U.S. census, means districts for both the state House of Representatives and Senate were redrawn, approved and signed into law by Gov. Steve Beshear last week. Lawmakers are still working to redraw the six districts for the U.S. House of Representatives.

  • Cheesecake makes tasty use of lemons, limes

    It’s official, I am now old because I have just hit the age of Medicare. Funny though, it doesn’t bother me, and I don’t feel that old.

    Two years ago, I almost missed this important milestone. But now I am walking more than a mile every day and doing Zumba at least once a week, and I feel fantastic. Besides, I have five grandchildren to keep up with, so I should keep active.
