  • Greendevils best Panthers, 30-22

    Mistakes proved to be too costly for the Carroll County High School football team, as the Panthers dropped their season-ender 30-22 to Dayton on the road.

  • Thank you extended to all Veterans

    As Veterans Day approaches, I would like to give my perspective of the American Veteran.

    It does not matter if he or she served during war or peace, they still deserve the utmost respect from the people of the world.

    The American Veteran is a person of honor, integrity and believes in the protection of freedom. Without the Veterans, we would not have the freedoms we have today.

    A Veteran is easy to see. They stand proud, talk clear and have stories only they can tell.

  • Music lessons can help develop minds

    I often get asked how young should a child start to take music lessons.  For formal lessons, the answer varies with the skill level of the teacher.  Some start as young as the age of three.  But for general music instruction, children can learn the principles of music from the first day of life.
