    Carroll County resident Dylan Williamson, 9, is recuperating at home after undergoing three brain surgeries at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital last week to treat his epilepsy.

  • Census: County, Carrollton increase population

    U.S. Census data released last week shows Carroll County’s population grew 656 people, a 6.46 percent increase, over the past 10 years.

    That growth falls just shy of the Kentucky average that shows the state’s population up by 7.36%, adding 297,598 new people putting the state at 4.33 million residents.

    County Judge-Executive Harold “Shorty” Tomlinson said he had expected that growth to be higher. “We were fairly close to the state average,” he told Carroll County Fiscal Court at its meeting Tuesday morning.

  • Baseball Panthers look to repeat last season’s success

    Losing 10 seniors in one year should be devastating to a program the following year in any sport. That would especially be true for a group that played a large part in the team finishing 20-11 and winning the “triple crown” — All-A tournament, the conference tournament and the district tournament.

    However, talk to Carroll County High School baseball head coach Jay Jones, and you will find that he’s not concerned.
