  •  On May 17, members of the Carrollton United Methodist Church are returning to where it all began in honor of the 225th anniversary of the congregation. In 1790, Methodists began meeting in the home of Richard and Sarah Masterson for worship. Little did they know that their gatherings would continue unbroken for more than two centuries. In celebration, the church’s May 17 Sunday service will be held outdoors at the Masterson House at 10:45 a.m.

  • I have never been good at roller skating (or anything that requires balance for that matter).  However, when I was a children’s pastor in another part of the state, I did take a group of church kids to the local roller rink.  One of the boys who went was named Will, and he skated like I remember skating.  He probably fell at least ten times and when he hit the ground, he hit hard.  In fact, he fell so hard that the tops of his shins, right below his knees, were completely bruised.

  • Carolyn Stout has seen many changes to Carrollton and Carroll County over the years.

    She grew up on Highland Avenue, or sometimes known as High Street, in one of the two matching brick houses just down the street from her current home.

  • Walk inside New Image beauty shop in downtown Carrollton, and you will likely be greeted by the hum of at least one of the six driers, the chatter of mostly women in the worn leather chairs and the infectious laugh of hairdresser Nana Adams.

    If you’re not a regular, you will likely be asked to wait, as Nana and fellow hairdresser Chuck Gordon are virtually booked up with their loyal customers, who Nana refers to as her family. She has worked at New Image since 1986 and has owned the shop since 1990.

  • A dripping faucet can make a water bill soar, so rather than watch money go down the drain, you’d probably grab a wrench or call a plumber. But there are equally expensive leaks elsewhere in your house, and you probably aren’t aware of them. They’re called phantom loads, and they’re constantly draining electric current.
