  • I will be retiring from my position as your Carroll County Extension agent for family and consumer sciences on Sept. 12.

    I have enjoyed my position here and hope that I have helped individuals and families improve their lives. Since I came here 17 years ago as your Carroll County agent, I have found everyone gave me the utmost support and willingnewss to work together for the betterment of the community.

    I could not have asked for better people to work with and have made many wonderful friends that I will cherish forever.

  • University of Kentucky Extension Agronomist Dr. Chad Lee is encouraging producers across the state to closely examine their soybeans. Several soybeans have turned yellow in the past few weeks and further examination revealed little to no nodules.

    Nodules, located on the roots, are critical to soybeans because it is the bacteria living in the nodules that biologically fixate atmospheric nitrogen for the plant. Soybeans demand a high amount of nitrogen for production, and if the plant cannot fixate its own nitrogen, yields will be greatly decreased.

  • Church homecoming set for Sept. 14

    Hopewell Community Church is holding its annual homecoming, Sunday, Sept. 14.  Sunday School is 10 a.m. and morning worship at 11 a.m. Dinner will be served on the grounds after service, music to follow.

    Trimble County Hymn Sing will be held at 7 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 4,  at the Pleasant View Baptist church.

  • One of the more threatening parables to anyone with a conscience is the parable of the good Samaritan. Considering that it is a parable about helping a person in dire straits, it’s not hard to understand why we cringe under the many verbs of helping the down and out man. What is most interesting to me is the unique difficulty it poses to people who consider themselves faithful to God. Kindness to those in need should be right up our alley, but the parable suggests that the good guys in the religious world have an Achilles heel in the mercy department.

  • Correct me if I am wrong, but I believe Carroll County is experiencing its own sort of Renaissance. Not necessarily returning to Greek sculpture and Italianate Villas, but I do see signs of artistic interest.

    Main Street alone has two art studios, two dance studios, and one music studio. That’s five opportunities to learn something new. That’s in addition to the various festivals we have with artists and musicians displaying their talents and multiple programs in the local schools promoting the arts.

    What is “The Arts” anyway?
