  • Hello, once again, my friends. It seems hard to believe that just an article or two ago I was writing and looking out the window as giant snowflakes drifted past the window. Today, I’m writing and sunrays are beaming in, birds are singing and my lawn desperately needs mowing.  If you don’t like the weather around here just give it a few days, it will change.

  • Carroll County Water District will be flushing their distribution mains. Starting on Friday, April 24, the Carroll County zone will be flushed. Gallatin County’s zone will be flushed Monday April 27, and Owen County’s on Tuesday April 28. At this time, customers may experience some discolor in the water due to the high scouring water flow throughout the pipes.

  • As yard work increases, this is the time of year where I tend to get questions about ground bees.  These bees are important pollinators.

    Nearly 70% of our wild bee species nest in the ground.  They choose well-drained soils in open, sunny areas.  Conical piles of fine soil particles usually surround their tunnel entrances. 

  • Yard sale season has arrived! As the temperatures are warming up, people are beginning to realize items they might need to purchase for spring and summer, such as children’s clothing or sporting equipment. Yard sale shopping is a great place to find items you need at bargain prices.

    If you are searching for yard sale bargains…

  • Life is so busy! We all have many things to do, things to see, places to go, people to meet… The list never ends! There never seems to be enough hours in the day. Have you ever felt that way? Is that your life now?

    Sometimes it isn’t just the clock that overwhelms us. We can get discouraged, frustrated, tired, and feel like nothing is going right in our life, our job, or our relationships. We come to believe within ourselves that it will always be this way and surely never get better.
