  • French onion can be a satisfying soup to make

    Ome of the first soups that I ever learned how to make was French onion.

    Although it contains few ingredients, French onion is one of the most complex and satisfying soups out there. 

    The combination of a rich onion soup paired with crunchy bread and melted, gooey cheese creates a dish that is better than the sum of its parts. 

    The ratio of soup to cheese to bread is a very important concept in a good French onion. 

    The earthenware crocks that French onion soup is commonly served in helps keep this ratio in check.

    The Lady Panthers basketball team is young. But what they lack in varsity experience, they make up for in effort and energy.

    Stone coached the past 11 seasons at Bardstown High School; the Lady Tigers were 11-18 last season.

  • Bathhouse, campground still in need of repair

    Now that it is closed for the season, work can begin on making repairs at the Two Rivers Campground.

    Mayor Gene McMurry told Carrollton City Council Monday night that he met Friday with Matthew Cramer of Lose & Associates and David Mefford,formerly of KEVCO, to discuss what still needs to be completed at the bathhouse.

  • Cooling replacement may fall to county

    It could be a long, hot summer in the Wheeler Hall of Justice if something isn’t done about the air-cooling system there.

    Carroll County Judge-Executive Harold “Shorty” Tomlinson told fiscal court Tuesday that he sought cost estimates for replacing the aging system and submitted it to the state Administrative Office of the Courts to proceed with approval to take bids on a new one.

    Instead, he received a reply that AOC won’t fund the estimated $28,830.
