Today's Features

  • God always keeps his promises. He has made a ton of them to his children throughout the scriptures and continues even today to do so.  A promise is the assurance that someone gives to another so they can know by faith, while they wait, the task will be completed.

  • Kentucky has an abundance of trees — about 12.4 million forested acres.

    In Eastern Kentucky, forests are full of dense stands of hardwoods. In Western Kentucky, you are more likely to see a riparian forest along a winding river. In Central Kentucky, stately bur oaks often populate urban landscapes.

    In Carroll County, we have more than 27,000 forested acres — that is 30.4 percent of the total county.

  • We have more winners from the 2013 Carroll County Fair – our department winners in the exhibit  trailer.  These exhibitors received a beautiful plaque for earning the “most points” for the number of exhibits and placing received in an open class department.  

  • Eleven countries in 11 months.

    It might sound like Carrollton native Riah Robinson is taking the vacation of a lifetime, but she’s anything but a tourist these days.

    Robinson is participating in World Race, a program offered by Adventures in Missions that sends young people ages 21-35 around the world to work with the poor and downtrodden. The goal of each “race” is to enable these young missionaries to become more like Jesus.

    And that was what drew Robinson in.

  •  

    St. John the Evangelist held a special Mass and international cultural program Sunday, June 16, to commemorate160 years as a parish in Carrollton. Honored guest to the event was the Most Rev. Roger J. Foys, D.D., bishop of the Archdiocese of Covington, who was the celebrant for Mass, and other visiting priests and decons.

  • As I think about last week and all the time that people gave so that our community could experience an event that would be of interest to an entire family, I think of the time that it took to make sure that this event occurred. The Carroll County Fair Board gave many days before the fair began and worked long hours making sure that the fair was an event that people would enjoy.

  • As an Extension agent, the local county fair is one of the biggest events I work with during the year.

    A lot of blood (smash-ed fingers), sweat (it was hot last week) and tears (happy tears—have you ever seen a livestock barn as beautiful as ours?) went in to make our Carroll County Fair a great success. 

    It’s one of the most rewarding weeks I have had to date in this county with the amount of livestock we had, as well as the wonderful 4-H and open exhibits.

  •  We express a big “thank you” to all the youth and adults who exhibited at the Carroll County Fair last week.

    We are proud of the number of exhibits in the Exhibit Trailer entered by our youth and adults helping us create an array of beautiful exhibits. 

  • The Carroll County Senior Center is located at 110 Sixth St., Carrollton. Contact Mitzie Williams, center manager, at (502) 732-7026 or carrollcty@insightbb.com
