  • Here’s a question for you: What is God like? From your gut, how would you characterize him?

    A number of years ago, Baylor University conducted a survey, asking people to choose words that described how they characterized God and his level of anger and also their perceived level of his involvement in the world.

    The researchers concluded that Americans viewed God in four distinct ways:

  • Hello once again my friends. As I write this article I am hoping everyone is recovering from the recent storms and damage suffered from them. This warm spring weather brings the green back, but also the stormy weather. After being out and about and hearing the chatter on social media, I saw that one of the local Mexican restaurants suffered some damage and has yet to reopen. Some of my most requested recipes are Mexican foods so I thought this might be a good time to write an article about preparing some of your favorite Mexican foods at home.

  • The Civil War had ended just a couple of years earlier and the nation was still recovering from the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln, a native Kentuckian.

    Residents of Carrollton were hungry for news and the chance to keep up with local happenings, as well as those across the nation.

  • Higher education costs paid in 2016 can mean tax savings when taxpayers file their tax returns. If taxpayers, their spouses or their dependents took post-high school coursework last year, they may be eligible for a tax credit or deduction.

    Here are some facts from the IRS about tax benefits for higher education coming from Issue Number: IRS Tax Tip 2017-31.

  • This year the focus of the 4-H program has been leadership. We now have an active 4-H Teen Council that has attended and will continue to attend leadership workshops and come back to our county and implement new programs.

    In November, our four teen council officers (Kinley Huesman, Andrea Searcy, Clara Tuttle and Madeline Watts) and myself attended a forum called Issues Conference. At this conference they discussed issues that face our teens today, brainstormed and researched ideas so teens could make better decisions.

  • Alfalfa weevil is the major insect pest of the first alfalfa cutting. Kentucky’s mild winter has pushed development significantly ahead so feeding by weevil larvae is appearing early.

    The tiny pinholes chewed into tip leaves by first and second stage larvae are easy to overlook. The real damage comes a few days later as the third and fourth stages feed voraciously. Individual larvae feed for about three weeks, but eggs hatch over an extended period, so damage can continue for five to six weeks.
