  • The smell of fresh cut grass and leather is in the air.  It is once again football season and the lights at the high school stay on a little later, now that Friday nights are here. 

    Saturday mornings offer up ESPN’s College Gameday and many people watch the pregame show with anticipation as another football season is unraveling. A fan of the gridiron can find a game on TV just about any day of the week now.  Football is everywhere.

    As a former footballer myself, I find it interesting, how rapidly the game is changing and evolving.

  • On behalf of the Carroll County Cooperation Extension Service, I would like to invite you to a retirement reception celebrating the years of service of Grace Angotti, our Extension Agent for Family and Consumer Sciences.

    The reception will be held this Friday, Sept. 12, from 2-6 p.m. at the Carroll County Extension Office. People are invited to stop in during that time to wish Grace well, share memories and enjoy cake and finger foods.

  • This is my last column as your Carroll County Extension Agent for Family and Consumer Sciences. I have really enjoyed being your agent and the wonderful people I have gotten to know in my work and involvement in other activities. I look forward to continuing to see you around and about the county.

  •  Carrollton native Raymond Meadows wants the community to know that the American Legion Post 41 is more than just a bar: it’s an active organization with mostly Carroll County members that supports the community and all veterans who need assistance.

    “There are a lot of things we do down here that the public don’t know, really what the Legion is all about,” Meadows said.

    Legion Commander for nine years, Meadows said it is a bigger job than people may think.

  •  The day after Madison’s 2009 Ribberfest, Jerry Johnson of Carrollton ran into his friend Paul Gaines at the grocery store. Gaines is a member of the Carrollton/Carroll County Tourism Board. That conversation resulted in what is now known as Bands and BBQ.

  • We all have them: Photographs of people saved among family mementos with no names provided. Nothing is more frustrating for a family historian. If you are like me, you no longer have anyone living who could help solve the mystery.

    The good news is that all photos have clues that can at the very least help determine when a photograph was taken.
