Born into a large family, he grew up traveling all across the country to visit family members.

The fire department has been working with children pre-K through fifth grade in the local schools and daycares since about 1980.

As I sit here typing this month&rsquo;s article, the dog days of summer are in full force. Well, I say that, but this morning it&rsquo;s 64 degrees with low humidity so what I should say is that the dog days of summer would be in full force. Would be if we had normal weather patterns anymore, that is. What is in full force for certain is that most of us are over our normal summer vegetable routine.</p> Bumper sticker theology http://www.mycarrollnews.com/content/bumper-sticker-theology <img src="http://www.mycarrollnews.com/sites/www.mycarrollnews.com/files/imagecache/thumb85/grace_notes_16.jpg" alt="" title="" align="left" hspace="6" /><p> On most days as I&rsquo;m on my way to work I see a car with a bunch of bumper stickers on the back.</p> <p> There&rsquo;s a &ldquo;26.2&rdquo; and a &ldquo;13.1&rdquo; sticker that means the driver is probably a marathon/half-marathon runner. Other stickers say things like &ldquo;Easy does it,&rdquo; &ldquo;One day at a time&rdquo; and &ldquo;Let go and let God.&rdquo;</p> <p> I&rsquo;ve seen those slogans before and they&rsquo;re often associated with 12-step programs like AA, although they don&rsquo;t belong to them exclusively.</p> Church News | Aug. 25, 2016 http://www.mycarrollnews.com/content/church-news-aug-25-2016 <p> <strong>Hymn sing Aug. 28</strong></p> <p> Sanders Baptist Church will host its monthly hymn sing Sunday, Aug. 28, at 6:30 p.m. The public is invited to attend.</p> Community Calendar | Aug. 25, 2016 http://www.mycarrollnews.com/content/community-calendar-aug-25-2016 <p> <strong>New events</strong></p> <p> <strong>Aug. 18-28</strong></p> <p> The Kentucky State Fair is underway at the fairgrounds in Louisville.
