  • A record crowd attended the Carroll County Animal Support’s annual chili supper held at Family Worship Center Saturday.

    The event raised more than $4,500 to benefit the homeless animals in Carroll County. The event was renamed “The Nelda Vannarsdall Annual Chili Supper.” Vannarsdall passed away last year, leaving a huge void in the organization’s fundraising activity.

    Ingredients for the chili and sandwiches were donated, and the food was made on site. Baked goods were donated from a number of people and organizations.

  • Many may consider Kentucky a “water-rich” state with over 90,000 miles of streams and rivers, thousands of ponds, lakes, reservoirs, and wetlands and approximately 50 inches of precipitation per year. So, it’s not surprising that water, one of our most valuable natural resources, is often taken for granted. For many Kentuckians, fresh water is no more than a turn of the faucet, the push of a button or the twist of a cap away. However, as consumers and users of water, it is our responsibility to manage our water resources efficiently.
