  • Sheriff warns of scam calls

    The Carroll County Sheriff’s Office received several calls last week from citizens who were contacted via telephone regarding credit cards. It appears this activity is a scam, Sheriff Jamie Kinman said in a news release.
    The typical scenario involves a person receiving a telephone call from a number that appears to be local. The number often appears on caller ID boxes with a 732 exchange and sometimes has a name associated with the number. Upon answering the phone, a solicitation is begun regarding a person’s ability to obtain lower credit card interest rates.

  • Track competes in first meet

    The Carroll County Panthers were in action for the first time this season last weekend. The Panthers competed at US Bank Arena in Maysville, Ky. at an indoor meet against 20 teams from across the state.

  • South Oldham too strong for Panthers

  • 2011 CCHS basketball/cheerleading senior night
  • Sharp shooting strikes down girls’ chances for senior night victory

    The Lady Panthers tried their best to send seniors Jill Butcher, Kyndal Curry and Tasha Hunter out with a win on Senior Night Friday. Unfortunately, when your opponent hits 13 of 29 3-pointers, it is very difficult to pull out a victory. Walton-Verona (20-8) scorched the nets from behind the arc, but Carroll County (15-12) was able to keep the game close, down only two points with a little more than 3 minutes to go in the fourth quarter. However, the Lady Bearcats pulled away at the end with a final score of 58-50.

  • Lady Panthers stumble in rivalry outing

    A layup by Paige Black early in the fourth quarter sparked a shift in momentum that drove the Trimble County Lady Raiders to a 47-42 triumph over visiting Carroll County last Wednesday.

Trimble cut the margin to five by outpointing the Lady Panthers 14-10 in the third stanza and trailed 36-31 going into the final eight minutes of play. That’s when Black’s layup rattled the Lady Panthers and invigorated her teammates.
