  • Our area was hit by tornadoes and other severe weather last week. Many families and individuals had homes, farms and businesses damaged,  including weather damage, power outages and numerous other loses.

    If you have had power outages and were without electricity or a cold source, foods stored in refrigerators and freezers can become unsafe. Bacteria in food grow rapidly at temperatures between 40 and 140 degrees. If these foods are eaten, people can become very sick.

  • On Feb. 21, Kentucky Boy/Cub Scouts were invited to attend Scout Day at the State Capitol in Frankfort. Five local 1st grade Cub Scouts from Pack 418 in Carrollton were granted an excused educational absence from school to attend the all-day event. The boys toured the Capitol, including the Senate chambers, House chambers, Kentucky Supreme Court Room and state Law Library, along with the governor’s office and mansion.

  • I have had lots of visitors lately, and I have had to plan menus that are easy to prepare and quick. One particular family member flew in from California late in the afternoon.  We had plans for 7:00 p.m. and they had not had anything to eat on the plane. Actually, they had been given a menu to choose from (they had to pay for their meal), but everything they chose, the flight attendant said they didn’t have. Consequently, they had nothing to eat. It pays to plan ahead.

  • Our children are looking for role models, and we think that these models should be school teachers, the religious leader of our Church, our in-laws or anybody else you can think of.
