  • Wednesday, May 3 begins the 2017 season for the RiverView Farmers Market in Carroll County.

    Farm-ers markets are a great opportunity to support our local agricultural producers.

    Buying local puts a face on your food and creates a connection between the consumer and farmer. It also gives you the chance to be “Kentucky Proud.”

    Kentucky Proud stands for products with roots in Kentucky soil. Kentucky Proud foods are raised, grown or processed in Kentucky by Kentuckians.

  • In the 1930s, a Polish nun named Maria Faustina Kowalska began to have visions of Jesus, who told her to record his message to her and spread it throughout the world. The central aspect of this message was that the world would know of the mercy of God. Because of this message, Catholics across the world celebrate the Sunday after Easter as Divine Mercy Sunday. But what is it that Jesus wants us to know about mercy?

  • Hello once again, my friends. It’s hard to believe that we already find ourselves in warm weather, pondering baseball games and camping trips. With all the great sights and sounds of spring we switch our focus to lighter foods and outdoor preparations. In essence its time to pull out the ole grill and fire that baby up. I certainly know the feeling of anticipation when the first warm days arise and the only thing we can think of is burgers or steaks on the grill.
