  • ‘Take five’ to reflect on the real meaning of Christmas

    Saint Paul encourages us in 1 Thessalonians, “Rejoice always…for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

    It takes conscious decision making to stay focused on this message as Christmas gallops toward us like a deer in headlights and the days get more and more hectic. When we are most preoccupied, most overwhelmed, most disheartened, it’s the perfect time to “take five.”

  • Biehl to sign book at the library

    Randall Biehl will hold a book signing for “A Survey of the Bible’s Minor Prophets” 1-3 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 17, at Carroll County Public Library in the local history room.

    Biehl has been working on the book since moving to Carrollton in 2006.

    He said the material in this study guide is a result of his desire to personally study and teach the minor prophets books of the Bible. The book was written to serve as a reference to aid in quickly locating desired material in the Bible.

  • Beshear’s inauguration continues the tradition of Kentucky’s govenors

    Steve Beshear was formally sworn into his second term as governor Tuesday, kicking off what is Kentucky’s 59th inauguration.

    While the governor is often the most well-known official in the state – like presidents, their tenures serve as guideposts to our history – the truth is that few of our past leaders are well known beyond the counties named in their honor.

    This week is a good time to learn a little more.

  • Walking group helps battle aches, pounds

    I met a friend from Owen County for lunch last week and we headed north to shop.  While she is three years younger than me, we both kinda creep for the first few steps after getting out of the car and spend a few minutes each visit detailing each new ache we are experiencing.

  • Cheerleading Competition
  • Lady Panthers search for offense

    Carroll County vs. Owen County, a classic district and border-rival battle. In recent years, it also has been a match-up between Carroll’s Hannah Devine and Owen’s Rianna Gayheart. Reigning NCKC Player of the Year, Devine came in a close second behind Gayheart for the 8th Region Player of the Year award. This year was to be the seniors’ last to compete against each other.

  • First quarter woes thwart chance for comeback against Owen

    If the first quarter were like the first pancake, the Carroll County Panthers would have been within striking distance of the Owen County Rebels Thursday night, down only 32-29 in the final three quarters of play. Unfortunately, first quarters cannot be thrown out. The Rebels outscored the home team 16-2 in the opening eight minutes, giving them a 48-31 victory.

    “We came out and, for whatever reason, I thought we played a little nervous. We missed a bunch of easy shots,” Carroll head coach Carroll Yager said.
