  • Relatives Raising Relatives will be held Monday, Nov. 2, at the second floor courtroom at the Carroll County courthouse.

    Learn about great programs that can benefit you and/or  the children you are raising. This also is the perfect time to have questions answered and is the place to pick up some great resources.

    By attending this special training, participants will qualify to receive Christmas assistance for the minors you are caring for.

  • It is that time of year again for Medicare Open Enrollment, and time for people to review their Medicare options for next year. 

    Angela Zeek, SHIP Coordinator with Legal Aid of the Bluegrass, said there is a growing trend for people to want to keep their current coverage this year, which could be a costly decision. 

    Some Medicare prescription drug premiums have increased as much as 200 percent and can cost about $100 a month. 

  • Happy Hollow Resort and Gibson Farm Fun Days will offer the Annual Turkey Shoot in the Hollow, under new management, 2 p.m. all Sundays in November at the Happy Hollow Resort off Hwy 227 in Worthville. They will also have Meat and Money Shoots, Scatterboards, Wal-Mart Gift card Giveaway and more. No alcoholic beverage allowed. For more information call (502) 525-4844.

  • As December holidays approach, plan ahead so you will remember this season, rather than the months it took to pay off the mountain of debt incurred on gifts for family and friends.

    To keep from spending too much money on holiday gifts, set a budget that won’t put you in a tight financial squeeze.

  • November arrives this weekend (hard to believe, right?) and as leaves continue to show their pretty colors and fall from trees, it is a great time to focus on landscape sanitation.
