Today's Features

  • We’re all familiar with the adage, “waste not, want not.” But sometimes when we try not to waste food, it shows up on our waists and other parts of our bodies as well.  The super-sized foods, so common today, can add to our sizes.  And since portion sizes also have been getting bigger, so are people of all ages.

  • Rain, cold temperatures, and snow.

    Is it too early to talk about that kind of weather?

    No, not if you are a livestock producer thinking about those less than ideal feeding conditions that typically happen during the winter months.  Now is the time to be sure to have a plan for winter feeding.

  • The Fall Brawl Demo  Derby had 43 cars Friday, Oct. 23 and 57 cars Saturday, Oct. 24.

    There were extremes in the weather as Friday was dusty and Saturday was rain and mud. Carroll Co. Fair Board hosted the event.

  • It is that time of year again for Medicare Open Enrollment, and time for people to review their Medicare options for next year.

    Some Medicare prescription drug premiums have increased as much as 200 percent and can cost about $100 a month.
