Today's Features

  • As we approach the season of graduation, I pause to reflect on when I graduated high school. Fourty-three years ago I walked across the stage and received a high school diploma from Owen County High School.

    At the age of 18, I thought I knew what I would be doing for the rest of my life. As high school and college graduates who have completed “required classes” begin to step into the next place in our lives, we often stop and question if it is right.

  • Once again, after going through my column ideas folder of scribbled notes on church bulletins, saved emails and starts of columns I haven’t finished, I’m turning these random bits of miscellany into today’s column.

    I hope some of these thoughts will be helpful to someone reading this.

    • “How could a thorn ever be grace?” That’s from a song, “Strong,” that I heard at a church recently. Thorns hurt, and I was hurting that day.

  •  4-H members are working diligently to get their projects ready to exhibit at the Carroll County Fair.  So many lifelong skills are learned through participating in 4-H.  There will be items displayed in many areas, including photography, recycled items, horticulture, home environment, clothing, food, electricity, arts and crafts, consumer and financial education, crops, needlework and then our animal science shows in the barn on the fairgrounds.

    Open livestock show information is listed above.

  • Summer is just one short month away—June 21.  Over the past couple of weeks, we have experienced a little bit of heat, but we all know that is just a taste of what is to come.

    Just as humans can suffer when the temperatures rise, our livestock and pets can feel it, too.  Get a step up on the weather now, and learn to recognize when your livestock or pets may be in danger from the heat and what you can do to increase their comfort.
