But in Wednesday’s title matchup of the North American Stainless/Carroll County Tourism Basketball Classic, these Kittens fought like alley cats in what local fans hoped would be a real cat fight with the Carroll County Lady Panthers.

    From the moment Carrollton Mayor Dwight Louden stepped into office in January 2006, part of his focus was on developing the riverfront along the Ohio and Kentucky rivers.

  • Where does Christmas come from? Not a store

    One of my favorite children’s book and Christmas TV special is “How The Grinch Stole Christmas.” I have watched this show faithfully for years.
    We all know the story, the Grinch despises the Who’s down in Whoville with their Christmas celebration. The Grinch hates all the “Noise, Noise, Noise” from the toys and their singing.  Then he came up with the “wonderful” idea to stop Christmas from coming.
