  • Peace is fleeting these days. We can hardly count on two days in a row without heartbreaking reporting of conflict and death. The next you know we’ll be reading about vipers invading our playgrounds.

    Actually, that is a good sign.

    As the prophet Isaiah tells it, there is an age of peace coming, and one of the signs of this age is the absence of age-old conflicts and fears. Like snakes.

  • Gardening season is in full force.

    And gardening season is a good time to think about the soil in our garden plots and beds. Soil compaction creates an unfriendly growing environment for plants and is a serious problem.  We see this issue not only in large crop operations with conventional tillage (tobacco, for example) but it is also a common issue for many home gardeners.

    Compaction transforms soil into a difficult environment for plant growth by making it harder for roots and water to penetrate the soil.

  • What a busy month!  Shooting sports is off and “shooting.”

    We have 12 members attending the District 4 Invitational contest.  The disciplines in which our youth will participate are archery, trap, target rifle, percussion rifle, 22 target, pistol, sport rifle, and muzzle loader rifle.

    Carroll County 4-H is so successful in the area of shooting sports thanks to the men who have attended certification workshops. We have a leader in each discipline.

  • A young man had been promoted to an important position in his company. He’d never dreamed he’d be in such a position, much less at such a young age. So he went to see the venerable old timer in the company, and said, “Sir, I was wondering if you could give me some advice.”

    The old timer came back with just two words: “Right decisions!”
