  • Lady Panthers top Eminence, Grant & Gallatin

    The Carroll County Lady Panthers scored wins in three volleyball outings during the past week, topping Eminence, Grant County and Gallatin County.

    Carroll won their final home contest, defeating Eminence 25-12 and 25-22 on Monday. Seniors Brooke Boles, Valerie White, and Katerina Woods were honored in their final home appearance.

    “They are great leaders and all three have played throughout their high school career, some of them even longer,” Coach Kristin Arbinger told The News-Democrat.

  • Senior Event proved to be another great success

    Editor:

    The 2009 Carroll County Senior Event held Thursday evening was again a big success as senior citizens from Carroll and surrounding counties came to enjoy “Memories of the Family Farm.” We wish to thank the hard work of the planning committee, donations from the community and time given by all of the volunteers who helped build buildings, gather and set up the old farm equipment and other items, and set up the day of the event. Mike Humphrey and his team started building and preparing the grounds three days before the event -- a tremendous feat.  

  • Drivers should obey traffic rules, signs

    Editor:

    I have no idea why some people in Riverwood Estates have to drive so fast.

    There are small children and pets in the neighborhood and two speed limit signs on Riverwood Drive. One at the bottom on the right as you come up the hill and the other at the top just below Parkside Drive. Please drive responsibly.

  • Army Corps evaluating Markland lock repair plans

    The Army Corps of Engineers Louisville District has preliminary repair plans underway to fix the Markland Lock Gate near Warsaw.

    The downstream lock gate on the 1,200-by-110 foot chamber failed during operation on Sunday, Sept. 27. One of the two leaves is resting on the bottom of the lock chamber. The other inoperable lock leaf is still affixed to the lock chamber and requires stabilization, according to Carol Labashosky, media spokeswoman for the Corps of Engineers Louisville District.

  • Down on the farm
  • Veterans, flags should have led way in parade

    Editor:

    I would like to thank all volunteers involved in planning and working our 2009 Tobacco Festival and Parade (job well done).

    It was very heart-breaking to see pageants and ATV’s lead the parade before the American Flag, veterans and active duty soldiers.

    Has it come to the point that beauty is more important than our freedom?

    Our Carroll County Band of Gold was placed toward the end of the parade. Do we not support our schools anymore? These kids missed a competition so that they could march in their hometown parade.
