  • Deck out the yard; adopt a snowman; get the holiday spirit

    It’s clear that the holiday season has arrived in Carroll County.
    The first real snow of the season fell Saturday, just as a number of Christmas events were held throughout the community.
    I spent all day Saturday working at A Christmas Carroll, which inspired me to haul out the tree and start decorating our home on Sunday. My tree is up and the remaining Christmas decorations will be up by the end of this weekend.

  • Longtime friendship leads to dessert collaboration

    Jarret Boyd always has a good column, but the one I really enjoyed was a couple of weeks ago when she wrote about visiting with her friends.

    It is so important to keep in touch with friends we have made over the years, but it isn’t always easy. Actually, Facebook has helped and I am so glad for that. It keeps us informed about what is going on with them, but the personal touch is truly the best.

  • Panthers border match with Raiders ends in 56-51 victory

    It was a nail-biting, hard-fought contest that has come to typify border disputes between high school basketball teams in north central Kentucky.

    The Carroll County Panthers and Trimble County Raiders met in Carrollton Thursday to test each other’s mettle in the new, 2010-11 hardwood season. It was Carroll’s home opener after defeating Williamstown on the road earlier in the week. It was the season opener for the Raiders who will play six more road games before their Dec. 17 home opener with Oldham County.
