  • Over the past several months, a couple of the area Agriculture and Natural Resources Extension Agents and I have been planning a new Exten-sion program that focuses more on our local natural resources.

    We call this program “Con-serving Resou-rces through Agri-cultural and Natural Explor-ation,” or CRANE.

    CRANE was developed to bring awareness and consideration to our natural resources by thinking outside of the classroom and learning about those resources through exploring our surroundings.

  • We are so very proud of our team of Carroll and Gallatin 4-Hers who took second place at the 4-H State Fair Sewing Skill-athon Satur-day, Aug. 24.

    Team members, Lorinda Bennett, Gabby Bowen, Hannah Welch of Carrollton and Kelli Deaton of Warsaw had to sew a garment from a pattern that they had never seen before and identify a variety of different fabrics, sewing notions, parts of the sewing machine, seam finishes and pattern markings.

  • More than 200 bikes took to the road Aug. 18 for a poker run to raise money to help provide Christmas to local children who may not otherwise have anything at the holidays. Organizer Tracey Reynolds said more than $7,000 was raised through T-shirt sales, a split-the-pot raffle and door prizes. 

  • Confession: I really, really, really hate to admit this but there’s a certain part of any church service that I dread — the “turn around and greet those around you” part.

    If you ask my sister what’s up with that she’ll tell you it’s because I’m “people intolerant.” She’s lactose intolerant — I’m people intolerant.

    She’s kidding. Sort of.
