    While most people think of Christmas in July, we think of New Year’s in July.  Our financial year is over the last day of June. 

    This gives us July and August to report and reflect on how well we served the community.  2010-2011 was one of our biggest years to date.

    Another week has flown by and in many ways with rumbling, rolling earth, wind and thunder.

  • Panthers hold on for 13-8 win in home opener

    As the old adage goes, ‘Defense wins championships.’ For Carroll County to achieve their season goal of winning the 2A District 5 title, the defense will need to step up and deliver like they did Friday night against the visiting Lewis County Lions.

    After putting up 237 rushing yards and 152 passing yards in their season-opening win over Nicholas County, Lewis was limited to just 33 yards on the ground and 50 yards through the air. The Carroll defense also forced two fumbles on the night, helping their team to a 13-8 victory.

  • $28 million due to feds may force special legislative session

    By Kevin Wheatley

    The State Journal

    Gov. Steve Beshear will call a special session to handle a looming $28 million interest payment on a federal loan for unemployment benefits if no other options are available, his spokeswoman says.

    The outlook for business owners statewide is bleak if Kentucky misses the Sept. 30 deadline, several say, and they’re waiting to see what happens. At stake is roughly $600 million in federal tax credits they could lose.
