So Cameron Darnold had his cap shot numerous times as shown in the picture. Luke Heveline also had a perfect score and did not wear a cap so his cap will be shot by the team members next Sunday.

  • Corn is harvested in July and August in Kentucky

    For some of us, eating fresh corn off the cob is one of our top summertime, food-related experiences. Corn is one of the many great offerings at the Carroll County Farmers Market this month.

    Farmers harvest corn in July and August in Kentucky. You can boil, steam, roast, microwave or grill it. It is naturally sweet so try to avoid using butter, salt or other seasonings that make it unhealthy. Instead, flavor with fresh lemon or lime juice, or season it with fresh herbs like thyme, paprika, garlic powder or black pepper.

  • Herbst gives tips to protect you from ticks

    Ticks have been especially active this year, and the tiny lone star tick will be most active over the next few weeks. This species gets its name from a distinct white spot on the back of the adult female.

    Reaction to their bites cause painful itching that can last for 7 to 20 days. Dressing appropriately, using repellents, and checking regularly for ticks are important actions to take to reduce the chances for ticks attaching and feeding on you during the remainder of the tick season.
