  • Those who believe should not keep their faith private

    In our day of political correctness and cultural diversity, or another term used is pluralism, a

    theory that there is more than one basic substance or principle. I often hear the following

    statement: “Faith is a private matter.” Mostly this statement comes from those that are opposed to religion altogether. It is the political correct way to say, “Keep your belief to yourself.”

    What has bothered me lately is I have heard the same “Faith is a private matter” from those who believe in the gospel of Jesus Christ.

  • Bus drivers make the difference

    A school district cannot function without bus drivers. The best teachers, the best curriculum and the best facilities are all pointless without students, and in the Carroll County School District, about 1,000 students arrive at their school each day on one of the district’s buses. Unfortunately, like many school districts across the state, Carroll is facing a bus driver shortage.

  • Carroll boys soccer drops home opener to North Oldham, 7-1

    The Carroll County boys soccer team led North Oldham for about 24 minutes during the first half, but were unable to keep up in the second half, falling 7-1, Aug. 23.

    Senior David Marshall got Carroll County on the board first in the eighth minute. Felix Avila passed the ball up and over the North Oldham defense, and Marshall outhustled everyone to get to the ball first. The keeper came out to attempt to retrieve the ball, but Marshall maneuvered around him and scored, right to left.

  • Panthers soccer comes close, but falls to Shelby

    The Panthers soccer team was four minutes away from tying or defeating the Shelby County Rockets for the first time in program history. Unfortunately for Carroll County, it wasn’t meant to be, as Caleb Patten scored what would be the game-winner on a through pass, 3-2, Tuesday, Aug. 30.

    “We did a lot better of controlling the ball,” head coach Kevin States said. “We took it to them. The past few games we’ve let the other team take it to us, and we did a good job today of staying on top. We were unlucky to not win.”

  • Carroll loses to Calvary Christian, 4-2
