Today's Features

  • We are so familiar with the entrance of Jesus into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday. It was a brief moment of triumph as people laid down their cloaks like a red carpet and waved palm branches with abandon. What a frenzy of welcome for this superhero. (Luke 19:35-38)

    Immediately after, Luke says Jesus wept over that city. “If this day you only knew what makes for peace, but it is hidden from your eyes.” Jesus left Jerusalem a week later, carrying a cross to Calvary hill where he was crucified as a criminal — and people wept.

  • Carroll County Extension Homemakers invite members and others interested in joining its Ice Cream Social and Yard Sale from 5-8 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 13, at the Carroll County Extension office.

  • After spending time in the hot afternoon sun picking vegetables from my friends’ garden, I wasn’t up to spending a lot of time in the kitchen. However, I had some nice vegetables I don’t have in my garden that would make a lovely meatless dinner.

    Now, I must admit, I am not very good about eating meals without some form of meat. I grew up with grandparents having a big farm and every year we had freshly butchered beef and pork that went directly into our freezer.

  • The Carroll County Senior Center is located at 110 Sixth St., Carrollton, (502) 732-7026

    I have taught this series for several years and recently been fortunate to have Becky Wilson, R.N., of Three Rivers District Health Department working with me so I have a medical professional who understands any underlying medical concerns that our participants may have.

  • On the feast day of St. Bartholomew on Aug. 24, I meditated upon the reading of the day, John 1: 45-51.

    Here we see Philip who found Nathanael and told him, “We have found the one Moses wrote about in the Law, and about whom the prophets also wrote — Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.”  Then Philip invited Nathanael, “Come and see.”

    Nathanael is identified as Bartholomew. Jesus called directly most of the Apostles. In the case of Bartholomew it was Philip who told him ‘come and see.’

  • It started with a calico kitten dodging vehicles on Hwy. 227 and the Battle of the Banks was born. 

    Anna Skirvin left her teller station at First National Bank of Carrollton to help a defenseless kitten find safety. She called Carroll County Animal Support President Sherry Stamper to see if someone could foster the kitten. CCAS members Cheri Martin and Robin Caldwell Welch drove over to pick up the kitten and proceeded to the veterinary office as the kitten was ill and malnourished.
