  • It’s time to mark your calendars for the beginning of summer. June 7-15 will be the Carroll County Fair. 

    As I have mentioned several times, I am so excited to be the 4-H Youth Develop-ment Agent for Carroll County. I have been accepted by so many agencies and organizations that are so receiving of the programs that 4-H has to offer. 

  • With last week’s article focusing on spring fertilization of lawns, this week’s article will continue the discussion with mowing lawns.

    The first mowing, usually in late March, makes the lawn look spring-like and very attractive.  Subsequent regular mowing hardens the grass for drought and heat stresses later on. When the first clump of grass grows above the mowing height, mow, even if a lot of the yard does not need to be mowed yet.

  • This Thursday, March 21 we are offering a special program, “Caring for the Caregiver” at 6 p.m. at the Extension office.

  • We all have certain pet peeves, those things that get under our skin and make us mad. Maybe it’s certain drivers or people with certain driving habits. For me, it’s being called “Buddy.”

  • Karalee Bessinger had planned on a career in scientific research, but it turned out what she was most interested in was people and medicine.

    After earning a bachelor’s degree from the University of Kentucky, the Georgetown, Ky., native made a bold decision. She enrolled in medical school at the University of Louisville, where she graduated in 2009.

    Being a Wildcats fan, “Dad had a hard time with that,” she said.

  • If you need some help getting in shape, Ladybug will be your trainer! She is a high-energy, mixed breed hound that loves to run and play. Ladybug is doggone cute, with a patch of black around one eye and Dalmatian spots on her mostly white, short fur.

  • What started as a way to get a job in education became life’s work for Margaret Brown Walker.

    The retired Carroll County High School special education teacher was born in Lexington, but moved to Carrollton in 1952 with her family when her father, Jim Brown, decided to open a retail lumber company in town. During that time, her mother, Caroline, taught health and physical education at Carrollton High School for four years.
