  • South spoils senior night, top Panthers 74-45

    Carroll County seniors Travis Ellis, Evan Mefford, John Perry and John Walls took the court for their final home basketball game Tuesday, Feb. 14. Unfortunately, the evening did not end as well as the home crowd would have hoped, as the Panthers could not generate enough offense to keep up with powerhouse South Oldham (18-8).

    The Dragons hit 11 3-pointers, while the Panthers (13-12) were shutout from long range, a major factor in South’s 74-45 runaway victory.

  • Gas price flucuations keep drivers guessing; Animal support hosts chili supper fundraiser

    Is it just me or does buying gas make you feel like a gambler? 

    Two weeks ago prices at the pump were dropping — $3.08, 3.05, 3.03.

    Every day it appeared to go down, but I kept watching those prices and hoping the odds would be in my favor and I could fill up for $3 a gallon.

    Nope, didn’t happen. I wound up filling my tank at around $3.50 per gallon. Then  I drove till I was afraid the fumes would run out and filled up next at $3.23.

    Two days later it was $3.06.

  • Lent invites Christians to serious spring cleaning

    “Remember that you are dust and to dust you shall return.” With these words ashes are smeared on our foreheads once a year—a reminder that we will all be laid to rest in the cemetery sooner or later.

    Dirty foreheads that are not cleaned for a day make people smile. They also give all Christians pause to think about cleaning out our “closets.”
