A crew of volunteers from Walmart in Carrollton, led by its manager Lisa Brown, planted flowers and cleaned up at the entrance to Carroll County off of Interstate 71 at Hwy. 227. They received assistance from Carroll County Sheriff’s Deputy Clay Cable, who alerted any traffic in the area to slow down as the crew completed its work. This is the second year the store has undertaken this project in advance of the NASCAR races at Kentucky Speedway.

I stopped in at the Carroll County Cooperative Extension office last week and was greeted with the most beautiful display of fresh vegetables.
You never know what’s behind those doors when you go there, but oh, the most pleasant people, displays and information is right there at your finger tips. Jim Graves was the person showing his beautiful vegetables and you can try some for yourself if you go to the Farmer’s Market every Wednesday at the courthouse and Saturdays at Hometown Pizza. If you don’t go, you are truly missing out.
