  • Scenes from the Mary Ann Gentry Art Show reception Friday, sponsored by the Carroll County Public Library.

  • I will be hosting a new cooking program called “Lunch and Learn” starting on May 9th. The program will run for six months on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month. It will be held at the Extension Office starting at 12:10 and running to 12:50. The premise of the program is for you to bring your lunch at noon and while you eat, I will be demonstrating new food recipes. The recipes will correspond with items you will be able to get fresh at the grocery store or at the Farmers Market.

  • Carroll County Cooperative Extension hosted a program for all fifth-graders from Cartmell Elementary School called “Recipes For Life.”

    Thanks to Superintendent Bill Hogan and Bus Transportation Director Nadena Mahoney for organizing bus transportation to bring the students to the Extension office.

  • Flowers in bloom, the sound of hooves thundering down the track, the whinny of a horse, the big and colorful hats, the taste of Derby Pie, the sweet sounds of “My Old Ken-tucky Home” playing in the background, the bugle call to the post, and “They’re off in the running of the 143rd Kentucky Derby!”

    May is a very special time in Kentucky, and although this year’s Kentucky Oaks and Derby may be a little on the rainy and cool side, there is nothing like it in the world.

  • A person won’t change until they’re ready to. Every Sunday messages are preached and yet people still refuse to respond to God. Instead of building their relationship with God, a lot of people give money to false preachers who claim that God will bless those who give to them. Even though Jesus Christ allowed himself to be nailed to a cross for our sake, things haven’t changed since the beginning; we’re still focused on what we want for ourselves and not what God wants for us.

  • Heather Ann Boots and Jay Frederick Koehler, both of Madison, Ind., announce their upcoming wedding at a private ceremony in Maui, Hawaii.
