Today's Features

  • As you walk into my office, you may notice my little farm animal figurines on the shelf.  I have just about every species of farm animal covered:  beef cattle, dairy cattle, horses, sheep, pigs, goats, donkeys, alpacas, poultry, rabbit, and the list goes on.  These little guys come in real handy when I am not able to bring in the real thing, especially to a classroom.

    They are the easiest animals to take care of because they barely eat a thing and manure management is a breeze (wink, wink).

  • Saturday, Nov. 28

    Shop Small, the Sixth Annual Small Business Saturday to support small businesses will be held in downtown Carrollton. Founded by American Express, Small Business Saturday is a day to celebrate the small businesses that help support their neighborhoods and is held every year on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. It’s a part of the holiday shopping tradition. Each year shoppers, businesses and public officials come together to ShopSmall and show their neighborhood pride.

  • Carroll County Retired Teachers Association met Nov. 20, at the Relevant Church gym, with 10 members present.

    In order to have money for the scholarship fund, some of the members prepared and donated the food for lunch. A small fee is charged for lunch, which goes toward the scholarship fund.

    The minutes of the September meeting were read by secretary Donna Wallace and approved. The treasurer’s report was given and approved.

  • Hello once again, my friends. As I type this, it’s still in the 60s outside. Who would have thought that in November that would still be the case? As with most things it seems the out of the ordinary is becoming the ordinary. That being said, I’m sure lots of people would certainly take these temperatures all winter long.
