  • Think about the times when you have felt truly satisfied in your life. What caused you to feel that way at that moment? 

    For most people, a sense of well-being comes when their surroundings and personal life are just the way they want it, all at the same time. But that wasn’t the case with Paul as recorded in the New Testament. He learned to be content in every circumstance, good or bad.

  • The Carroll County Conservation District will hold a field day at 5:30 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 19.

    The field day will be held at Christman Farms on Hwy. 55 in Prestonville, one-fourth mile south of the intersection of U.S. 42 and Hwy. 55.

    This field day will spotlight grain bin storage and drying, as well as conservation practices related to that topic. Paul Veech, district conservationist, will speak on filter strips and soil quality.

  • Several activities for area residents are set for Wednesday and Thursday.

    At 2 p.m., Wednesday, Sept. 11, a farm field day will be held at Fairview Place Assisted Living. The Carroll County Extension Homemakers will be assisting with the activities.

    Calling all senior citizens! Don’t forget to come to the Senior Event Thursday, Sept. 12 at Point Park. ”We’ve Been Working on the Railroad” is this year’s theme. It is going to be another great event.

  • It has been an interesting year for Kentucky’s corn crop.

    Last year, we faced drought-damaged corn, while this year’s crop is on track to be record-setting and wetter than average.

    Pre-pare handling equipment, dryers and storage bins well before harvest to minimize problems that can create unexpected delays.

  • As you read in the last article, Carroll County 4-Her’s were successful at the Kentucky State Fair last month.  You might ask, “Where’s the Beef?”

     And I can tell you where the best beef is! Right here in Carroll County, where Caleb and Levi Steph-enson placed in several classes in the Angus Beef show. The biggest honor was when Caleb’s heifer was named best of breed and owned.
