  • Friendship is one of the most precious gifts you can give any time of year. It is especially important to have close friends around during holiday seasons. These times of year people often are stressed or depressed. Perhaps they are hundreds of miles away from loved ones, or recently have lost a family member or close friend.

    Meaningful relationships are based on friendship, which thrives on kindness and respect.

  • I realize that 2017 is not yet here, but planning for the future is exciting, so let’s talk about summer: 4-H Camp. Carroll County 4-H campers will again camp with Gall-atin, Owen, Kenton and Grant Counties at North Central 4-H camp in Carlisle, Kentucky.

    The date is July 3-7 and the cost is $200.

    Campers are to be 9 through 14 by the camp date.

    We are assigned to two boy’s cabins and two girl’s cabins so if you are interested, please call (732-7030) and let Rhonda know you are interested and she will send you the proper forms.

  • The new Veterinary Feed Directive will go into effect on Jan. 1, issued by the Food and Drug Administration.

    There are two important principles that will change the way all livestock producers will obtain feeds containing antibiotics.  The first principle limits “medically important antimicrobial drugs” to uses in animals that are considered “necessary for assuring animal health.”  These uses include the treatment, control, and prevention of disease but do not include improved weight gain or feed efficiency.
