  • My friend, Sandy, told me when her grandson came over she prepared breakfast for dinner.

    His reaction was quite surprising to her. He said it sounds awful to have breakfast for dinner, because breakfast is for breakfast.  Another friend called me a few days ago and during our conversation she asked what I was fixing for dinner.  “We’re having breakfast for dinner,” I said.  She told me her kids loved that for dinner when they were growing up.

  • The sun is lower in the sky. There is briskness in the air. The deep green of summer is giving way to hints of yellow, orange, red and brown.

    Fallen leaves are peppering the sidewalks and lawns of our community. Birds are on the wing, heading south. Flower beds are being turned over for the coming winter. Lawn mowers will soon be back in storage. Sweat shirts are around the waist and over the shoulders at dawn and dusk. Once again God is gracing us with the beautiful season of autumn.

  • Our ag/4-H Extension agent, Christin Herbst, worked with the Reality Store last Friday at Carroll County Middle School, assisting guidance counselor Beth Wallace and other CCMS staff.

  • Rumor has it there is a new girl in town.

    I hear she is young, but energetic.  People tell me she is a third-generation agriculture agent, who attended school at the University of Kentucky and is a genuine people person. 

    Furthermore, I hear she’s working with the 4-H program as well. The talk is that she is honored to be in Carroll County, and eager to do all she can to assist its residents.
