  • The following are tips on spring calving a cow herd:

    Start cows on the high magnesium mineral supplement soon. Consider protein supplementation if hay is less than 10 percent crude protein.  If cows are thin, begin energy (grain) supplementation now.

  • Retired Carrollton Fire Chief Randy Tharp made a promise to his daughter, Melissa, that he would walk her down the aisle at her wedding, planned for Dec. 28, 2013. The family talked about moving the wedding to an earlier date, but Randy wouldn’t hear of it – even though he had been battling lung cancer for nearly three years.

    He kept his promise. He walked Melissa down the aisle and attended the reception afterward. He even took time to admonish a friend at the wedding, who he felt wasn’t taking care of herself.
