  •  My, what a busy month. Where does the time go?  Carroll County Cooperative Extension was the host for the 4-H District 3 Variety Show and what a great program. 

    There were 10 contestants, seven from Kenton County, one from Pendle-ton County and two from Carroll County. The talent consisted of piano playing, violin, singing, guitar playing, tap dancing, and modern dancing.  Both of Carroll County’s contestants will go on to perform at the state fair in August. It is so wonderful to see our youth as they perform in front of an audience.

  • Then people brought little children to Jesus for him to place his hands on them and pray for them. But the disciples rebuked them.

  • Have you noticed the presence of carpenter bees around your home lately?

    These beneficial pollinators can be intimidating.  They are relatively large in size and can cause considerable structural damage over time.

    Carp-enter bees spend the winter as adults in their gallery homes.  Now, they are starting new tunnels or expanding old ones in order to raise a brood of about six larvae during the summer.  Accumulations of sawdust may be the first sign that their work has begun.
