Today's Features

  • Hello, once again, my friends. It seems amazing sometimes how fast time flies. It seems like just yesterday I was writing about foods that can be ground up, owing to the fact that my son wasn’t able to chew after having jaw surgery. I must say, it’s a weight off the old mind being able to cook away once again without regard to how the food will grind up. And, along with that, he’s finally back to eating some good ole spicy foods, which brings me to the point of this month’s article.

  • August is quickly coming to a close, and as we look over the past month, we have experienced much for dry weather compared to July’s rainy month.  Summer heat and dry weather can take a toll on your flower garden, but with a little extra care, it is possible to bring it back to life for a few more weeks of vibrant color and texture.

  • The teenage years can be rough on teens and on parents, as young people strive for independence and parents learn how and when to let go. One of the most common stresses put on teens is peer pressure. While they want to be independent, they do seek acceptance from their peers.

  • It’s time to praise the 4-H youth of Carroll County who participated in the Kentucky State Fair and won many awards. Sixty-three projects were judged.
