Today's Features

  • Summer gardens are in full swing right now. Sweet corn is coming in, tomatoes are ripening, and it makes my mouth water just thinking about it.

    As we enjoy our scrumptious bounty from the garden, it is time to start planning how you can continue to enjoy your garden and even add new plantings. Planting a variety of produce in the garden in the coming weeks allows fresh items to be available well into the fall.

  • Gary and Lynn Livesay, formerly of Carrollton, announce the marriage of their daughter Evan Louise to Curtis L. Cockrum of Denver, Colo.

    The bride is the granddaughter of the late Doug and Kate Chapman and the late Rev. Paul and Mary Louise Livesay.

    The couple was married on Saturday, June 7, 2014, in Gold Hill, Colo.

  • Children living at the Housing Authority of Carrollton have the opportunity to partcipate in crafts, food and other activities every Wednesday in June and July at the housing authority office. Executive Director Ray Clem and his staff, in cooperation with Carroll County 4-H Agent Joyce Doyle, 4-H members, members of the Extension Homemakers, Fairview Place manager Chet Mitchell and community members are sponsoring the program.  Pictured June 25, children made beaded keychains, paracord bracelets and helped fix lunch.

  • On July 26, the descendants of Ernst and Mary E. (Buscher) Raker are gathering for a reunion picnic at the St. Peter’s Lutheran Church, in Hunter’s Bottom, Hwy. 36, in Carroll County.  Come about 11 a.m. and eat around noon.

    Please bring some goodies to share and any historical mementos of the family to “show and tell.”

    Any descendants of Johann and Clara (Buscher) Strautmann and Henry and Marie (Buscher) Titkemeyer are invitred.  Other Buscher families also welcome.

  • Preparing young people to be positive and contributing members of society is one of the most important tasks facing our society today. 

    The 4-H Youth Development does just that. We all know the four “H’s” stand for Head, Heart, Hands, and Health. 

    Head: 4-H gets the youth thinking. They will learn how to think as team members and to work with others to accomplish goals. They will discover the world around them and build the knowledge, skills and attitudes they need to be strong, self-directed and productive adults.  

  • Happy Fourth of July.As we move into the holiday weekend, it is looking to be the perfect kind of weather to spend outdoors with family and friends.

    While we are enjoying the outdoors, we may be having a little bug enjoying us—the mosquito.  Let us take a look at ways to combat these pests.

    Female mosquitoes are blood feeders and may live for more than a month.  They generally require a blood meal before laying eggs.

  • People today are so busy! So much time is spent running here and there. Though sometimes it can’t be helped, there are moments when our rushing is far more of a detriment than we realize.
