  • Summer family activities abound across Kentucky

    With memories of the long winter starting to fade and the Memorial Day weekend now behind us, the time has come to begin planning for summer.

    There certainly is no shortage of activities nearby or across the state, and their popularity can be seen in the bottom line.  According to an annual study released earlier this month, Kentucky’s tourism and travel industry was responsible for $12.5 billion in direct and indirect spending in 2013, which was a 2.6 percent increase over 2012.  Overall, these businesses employ nearly 176,000 people.

  • STEM bus to make stops for summer reading events

    The Carroll County School District is hosting several summer learning activities throughout the community this summer. The STEM Bus, credit recovery/enrichment and the summer reading program will all be active during the months of June and July.

    The Center of Accelerated Learning will be open for three sessions so that students can earn course credits.

  • Priest finds new home at church in Brooklyn

    Editor:

    I don’t know whether it is a good news or bad news. I was planning to return to Kentucky in June after my one year sabbatical leave. I had purchased the air ticket. Finally I had to submit my will to the will of God.

    I was appointed the Coordinator General of 124 Carmelite (CMI) priests in the U.S. and Canada and pastor of St. Anthony parish, Brooklyn, N.Y. I cancelled my air ticket.

    I had purchased earlier and purchased a new ticket to New York on May 29. I will arrive in New York on May 30.

  • Memorial Day honors all those who gave the ‘ultimate sacrifice’

    Memorial Day may be the unofficial kick-off to summer, but as we ready for the upcoming holiday weekend, it is vital that we never forget it is much more than that.  It is also a time when we as a nation pause to mourn and to reflect upon those men and women who paid the ultimate price defending our freedom.

    The holiday is nearing its 150th anniversary, and given that it came about in the wake of the Civil War, it seems appropriate that there is still some debate between the North and South about its exact origin.

  • UK top players join Champions with anti-drug message

    When many of you hear about University of Kentucky basketball, you might think of Big Blue Nation or the eight-time NCAA Champions — maybe even a fervent fan base.

    But one thing is for sure, the University of Kentucky basketball team is and always has been one of strong teamwork, dedication and perseverance, whether they were winning or losing. These are qualities that a couple of the team’s former players will hone in on, from 4-5 p.m., May 30, at the Carroll County Middle School.
