  • Watch out for kitchen fires

    During the holidays and family gatherings, kitchens are used more than normal. Since the kitchen is a common place for fires to start, now is the time to review safety measures to prevent kitchen fires and know what to do if a fire does start.

  • Panthers lose to Henry

    Poor rebounding and turnovers hindered Carroll County’s ability to execute their game plan against visiting district foe Henry County, leading to a 67-44 blowout Tuesday night.
