  • One of the great pleasures in life is being able to say, “I told you so.”

    I don’t get to say it often, but when I do, especially when I can say it to my husband, I do it with immense glee. I may even dance around and sing.

    Moms get to say I told you so a lot.

    Remember Ralphie’s mom in “A Christmas Story”? Ralphie kept asking for Red Ryder BB gun and his mom kept saying, “You’ll shoot your eye out.”

  • The Carroll County Public Library Summer Reading Program ended with a bang, actually a Whiz-Bang. Dr. Dave presented a program called States of Matter: Solids, Liquids, Gases on June 30.

  • Summer is upon us, and temperatures are beginning to heat up. While that may be welcome news for many, combinations of high humidity and excessive heat can be dangerous for others, especially older adults.

  • Hay bale or barn fires can be prevented if hay is baled at appropriate moistures and temperatures are monitored of recently baled hay.

    Generally, hay will go through a heating phase within one to two weeks after baling. During this time, monitor the hay to make sure it does not reach temperatures that can damage the hay or lead to spontaneous combustion.
