  • Family searches for Good Samaritan


    My family had a head on collision on Hwy. 36 in Carroll Co. on Feb. 26, 2014. The wreck was caused by an impaired driver. My daughter was stat flighted from the scene and me and my husband were flown from Carroll County Hospital. There was a lady that stopped to help my family. She drove an SUV, I believe it was black. Not sure what the make of it was. We are pretty sure her name was Mary. And I am pretty sure she was from Indiana.

  • Family Fitness Nights will return in September

    Thanks to generous community donations and a successful five-week pilot, the Family Fitness Night program will begin September 2014 in the Carroll County School District.

    “I want these events to be a fun way for families to exercise together,” said Carrie Smith, health services coordinator for the district. “Having a routine of exercising year-round is beneficial for everyone in a family, not just the kids. Our Family Fitness Nights are a great way for the whole family unit to spend time together and to get fit.”

  • Cyber crimes increase in state, nation

    If identity theft still seems like a relatively rare crime when compared to other types of stealing, the truth is that it plays a much bigger role than one might think.
