    Now that 2012 has come to a close, I have been looking forward to 2013. I am just now getting accustomed to saying “twenty twelve,” and it seems to have happened just as a matter of course.  I didn’t say “twenty oh nine,” or even “twenty eleven.” But for some reason, “twenty twelve” was the tipping point.

  • Boys hang close, but fall to Anderson Co., 63-54

    Decimated by injuries, the Carroll County boys basketball team easily could have hung their heads and given up on the remainder of the season. But the Panthers refused and have accepted their new roles and played tough against the No. 2-ranked team in the 8th Region Thursday night.

    Carroll hung with the Anderson County Bearcats the entire way and was within four points at the start of the fourth quarter. But the home team could not get enough shots to fall, while the Bearcats ran down the clock and hit enough free throws down the stretch to defeat Carroll 63-54.
