  • Carroll County drops home district game to Eminence, crucial rematch

  • Take time to evaluate your insurance needs

    The purpose of insurance is to protect against the unknown by providing financial security when the unexpected happens. Many people receive health insurance through their employers, but individuals who are self-employed, retired or who have too little or unaffordable coverage should purchase insurance on their own.

  • Check livestock for signs of louse

    Cold weather is louse weather for livestock. Inadequate nutrition, compromised immune response and shipping stress also favor outbreaks, if there are any infested animals in the herd.

    Biting and sucking lice have been associated with reduced weight gains and general lack of thriftiness during periods of greatest winter stress. These small external parasites can spread quickly through a herd as animals bunch for warmth or when feeding.

  • Dragons’ run in 3Q too much for Panthers

    South Oldham’s third quarter defense stifled a Carroll County run and helped the visiting Dragons pull away, winning 84-60.

    Down 11 at halftime, the Panthers (8-10) pulled within seven points on a 3-pointer by Isaiah Hogan with 3:54 remaining in the third quarter. Unfortunately for Carroll County, that would be their last field goal of the quarter. South Oldham (7-13) ratcheted up their defensive intensity, trapping in their full-court press, and forcing Carroll County into turnovers.
