  • Winter has finally made its arrival in Carroll County over the course of this last week, and boy, has it made its presence known.  As the temperatures drop, many people use a fireplace to supplement their heat supply, or just for enjoyment.

    Each time a load of firewood is brought inside, you may be opening the door for wood-infesting insects to make your home their home.  These insects typically either actively feed on wood or are simply using the wood for shelter.

  • Now is the time when we start thinking about filing our income taxes from the previous year.  Even though it’s an annual event, it can cause anxiety for many. By preparing now, you can ease the process for yourself and your tax preparer.

  • It’s not too late for us to make a few New Year’s resolutions. In addition to those resolutions to exercise regularly, eat better, save money, get organized and call Mom more often, we can make room on our list for a few more improvements which will help us grow spiritually.

    In 2016 we can resolve to ...

    1) Be more aware of God’s presence in our life by spending 15–30 minutes a day in quiet prayer.

    2) Do your very best to attend services every Sunday.

    3) Ask for forgiveness on a daily basis.

  • Jesus, the Son of God, has been given sovereign authority in heaven and on earth, and it is he and he alone, who sits on the throne of his universe. Jesus the Christ is the only one who has the authority and power to send his disciples out into this world to be a witness for him. The Psalmist said in 115:3, But our God is in the heavens: He hath done whatsoever he hath pleased.

    We must never forget that we are under the total authority of Jesus the Christ.

  • As we move into the winter months, water requirements of livestock are critical to maintain optimum animal performance.  Winter brings the challenge of providing water to livestock while battling freezing temperatures. 

    Factors that affect water intake include: environmental temperature, feed moisture, body size, and level of milk production.  A lactating beef cow in the summer on a 90˚F day will drink 16 gallons of water, while during a 40˚F day in December the same cow would consume less, approximately 11 gallons.
