  • Lonnie serves a treasure found in old jewelry box

    The other day I started cleaning out my jewelry box, a much dreaded job I must confess. I’ve mentioned to many of my friends that it is something I really must do, so I finally started into it. “Started” is the operative word because I didn’t finish it, although it does look much better. It is not quite the tangled mess it once was, thank heavens.

    The Lady Panthers’ defense kept the game close, but missed shots in the waning minutes led to a disappointing five-point loss to rival Owen County, 45-40, Friday.

  • Panthers struggle against more physical Rebels Friday

    Owen County’s Rebels ran roughshod over the Carroll County Panthers Friday in a physical high school basketball contest at Carrollton. The Rebels raced out to a 16-2 advantage with 2:35 remaining in the first quarter and never looked back en route to a 61-32 romp.

  • Girls get easy win

    Saturday was a big night for senior Tasha Hunter. Not only did she win the homecoming crown, along with fellow senior E.B. Martinez, but she also scored a season-high 16 points and pulled down 8 rebounds in the Lady Panthers’ 72-13 victory over Eminence.

    Hunter was four of eight from the field, including two 3-pointers and was six for six from the charity stripe. “She’s a good shooter when she gets her feet set,” head coach Randy Mefford said. “She’s a good leader for us too, that’s what I like most about her.”

  • Be considerate with that cell phone

    I would like to use this space for a little rant this week.

    Let me begin by saying I love my cell phone. It’s great for when you are shopping with a friend and need to get back together after going your own ways. I have called the library for a phone number when I am on my way to an appointment and have left the address at home or I’m going to be late and need to call and let someone know. I have even taken a picture of a beautiful sunset with my phone when I encounter one and don’t have my camera.

  • I-71 in Carroll County deserves attention, repairs to fix potholes

    Have you driven on Interstate 71 in Carroll County lately? If so, you’ll know our section  of this major highway is in  need of repairs.

    This winter has not been kind to I-71. It’s rough and the number of potholes seems to increase every day. And it’s only going to get worse as the weather breaks in the next month and there is a lot of freezing and thawing to damage the pavement.

    At best, I would say riding through Carroll County is a bumpy experience. It’s hard on both our bodies and our vehicles.

  • Correction

    In the police brief “Family Dollar manager charged with theft” in the Jan. 26 edition of The News-Democrat, Dorette Sue Noble was misidentified in the body of the story as being the manager at another store. She was the store manager at Family Dollar when she was charged with theft by unlawful taking over $500, a class D felony.
