  • After months indoors, local boy gets wish for Paradise

    After years of doctors and hospitals, and months of being forced to stay inside his home, it seems natural that 8-year-old Connor Mefford would dream of a vacation in Paradise – the Atlantis resort on Paradise Island in the Bahamas, to be precise.

    That’s where Connor and his family spent fall break in October – riding the 60-foot water slide at Atlantis, walking the white sandy beaches and swimming with dolphins.

  • Bike racks coming to downtown C’ton

    Carrollton will become more bike-friendly this spring, as bike racks will be purchased thanks to donations from the Carrollton Main Street Program and Carrollton/Carroll County Tourism. Carroll County Community Development Corporation Executive Director Bob Yoder told council Monday he submitted a proposal last month to the organizations to add bike racks to downtown. Main Street donated $1,000 and Tourism donated $750 to the project.

    The bike racks cost about $300 each.

  • Turnovers plague girls in loss at Trimble Co.

    The Lady Panthers committed an estimated 35 turnovers in their 70-37 road loss to the Trimble County Lady Raiders. The game was originally scheduled for Friday night, but moved to Saturday afternoon due to severe weather.

    “We weren’t getting any loose balls. They were outhustling us to every ball, and we didn’t take care of the ball,” head coach Paul Stone said. “When those two things happen, it’s going to be a long night. We’ve got to take better care of the ball.”

  • Panthers conquer Demons for third straight win

    Saturday night wasn’t the Panthers’ best game of the week, but it was good enough to get the win and a 3-0 start to the 2013-14 season. The Carroll County boys defeated the visiting Williamstown Demons, 60-44.

    “They had a good game plan, and we’re fortunate to be able to get the win,” head coach Carroll Yager said.

    Senior Dakota Corbin posted his third straight double-double with 19 points and 13 rounds, while senior transfer Blake Kruzan had his best showing of the season so far with five points and 11 rebounds.

    The visiting Carroll County Panthers netted 33 of their 44 first half points from downtown en route to spoiling the Trimble County Raiders’ season home opener Dec. 5, 70-59.

    “I think we were 11 for 20 from three at the half. That’s lights out shooting right there,” Panthers head coach Carroll Yager said following the game. “We don’t normally shoot the ball that well.”
