  • Scout Day at the Capitol

    On Feb. 21, Kentucky Boy/Cub Scouts were invited to attend Scout Day at the State Capitol in Frankfort. Five local 1st grade Cub Scouts from Pack 418 in Carrollton were granted an excused educational absence from school to attend the all-day event.

  • Slow-cookers offer good option for tasty meals

    I have had lots of visitors lately, and I have had to plan menus that are easy to prepare and quick. One particular family member flew in from California late in the afternoon.  We had plans for 7:00 p.m. and they had not had anything to eat on the plane. Actually, they had been given a menu to choose from (they had to pay for their meal), but everything they chose, the flight attendant said they didn’t have. Consequently, they had nothing to eat. It pays to plan ahead.

  • CCAS chili supper nets more than $4,500

    A record crowd attended the Carroll County Animal Support’s annual chili supper held at Family Worship Center Saturday.

    The event raised more than $4,500 to benefit the homeless animals in Carroll County. The event was renamed “The Nelda Vannarsdall Annual Chili Supper.” Vannarsdall passed away last year, leaving a huge void in the organization’s fundraising activity.

    Ingredients for the chili and sandwiches were donated, and the food was made on site. Baked goods were donated from a number of people and organizations.
