  • Carrollton Christian Church presented “The Last Supper” on Holy Thursday, March 28. The play was directed by Dwight Louden and co-written by Paul Livesay and Louden. John Romans constructed the table, and Virginia Simpson made the unleavened bread.

  • Safety is an important word in all aspects of our life. 4-H stresses safety in all of their projects, but the one that is being focused on right now is gun safety. 

    I had the privilege of being included in the health and safety fair that was held at Cartmell Elementary on March 16.  Eddie the Eagle was in attendance where his message was when you see a gun you are to “stop, don’t touch, leave the area and tell an adult.”

  • One of the signs that spring has arrived is when yellow buttercups begin to appear, but it is during the winter months that the vegetative growth of buttercups actually takes place.

    As a cool-season weed, this plant often flourishes in over-grazed pasture with poor stands of desirable forages.  In fact, many fields that have dense buttercup populations are fields heavily grazed by animals during the fall through the early spring months.

  • Spring is finally in the air. I hope you had a nice Easter and are enjoying the beautiful spring flowers that are gracing our yards and parks.
