  • Heavy rain hits Carroll

    A quick drop in river levels last week prevented possible flooding problems this week as more than three inches of rain fell in Carroll County between Sunday and Monday.

    Carroll County Flood Plain Manager Mitchell Perkins said the Kentucky River had dropped eight feet since last week when it hit flood levels, causing at least one road to close in the county. This made way for this week’s rains and prevented another rise into flood levels.

  • Pearl Harbor coverage sparse in local papers as nation fought war

    The surprise attack on United States military installations on the island of Oahu 70 years ago today shocked the world. While we “remember Pearl Harbor,” there were numerous other facilities and islands involved in attacks by the Japanese military that day. Residents of small communities in middle America were no less stunned than those Americans in the coastal communities who would most likely have had the most to fear of impending attack on the mainland.

  • Stuffing recipe is one to share for the holidays

    I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving, I certainly did.  Most of my family lives in the Indianapolis area, so we usually go there. We have so much fun together.

    I always remember the family meals we had when we were very young, and what I continually reflect on is all the laughter. I am proud to say, especially since I am now the ‘older’ generation, that we have certainly carried on the tradition.

  • Student of the week: Austin Martin

    Christian Academy of Carrollton selected Austin Martin, a 10th grader, for Student of the Week because he has shown great maturity in academics, responsibility and kindness throughout the three years at CAC. Austin has been such a big help with the school system during chapel and programs as well as in other areas this year. After the Academy’s break-in and robbery, Austin especially has been able to make-shift borrowed older equipment to continue with our chapel program each week. All of this is being done with a smile. Thank you Austin!
