  • David Day, 11, of Taylorsville sat outside Carrollton Sheet Metal on Friday, selling popsicles for 25 cents to raise money for the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital. The company is owned by his grandparents Dave and Barb Clymer. His sister Emma, 5, suffers from seizures. Last year, David donated $15 to the hospital after one day of selling his wares. “I don’t want people to go through what I do,” he said.

  • Family Ties Resource Center will host a Community Baby Shower from 6-7:30 p.m., Wednesday, April 25 at Cartmell Elementary for all new and expectant parents.

  • The unseasonably warm temperatures prevalent over recent weeks have pushed things in the plant world, including disease. 

    Last week, we confirmed Pythium root rot on some fairly young tobacco seedlings. 

    Pyth-ium root rot is common in tobacco float beds, but we usually do not see much of this disease until ad-April; however, warm weather has created favorable conditions ahead of schedule.

  • Most of us enjoy spending more time outdoors in our yards and gardens.

    Do you love your yard and gardens? Or, do you wish they were more personally enjoyable?

  • The Lots of Love team in Memory of Glenda Breeden is trying to raise awareness and money for Carroll County Relay For Life.

    Through June 15, team members are passing around a “purple potty” to yards in the area with awareness signs and Relay signs to help bring attention within the community about cancer and Relay For Life.

    The team hopes more people in the community will come out to honor and remember those who have battled cancer. The Relay will be held June 15-16 at the fairgrounds.
