  • Being an interpreter is more than just being able to speak multiple languages. It takes accuracy, precision and focus to do the job.

    Magali McCarty is Carroll County’s only certified Spanish interpreter through the Administrative Office of the Courts and the only AOC-certified Portuguese interpreter in the state of Kentucky, earning her certifications in 2004.

  • Many of us grew up with a family garden and remember the fresh taste of the first tomato of the summer or the crispness of the first ear of corn.  While you may not have the time or space to grow your own fruits and vegetables, you can still get the freshest produce available at your local farmers market. Shopping at the local farmers market has numerous benefits for you, your family, local farmers and the community. 

  • Temperatures are warming up, school will be out for the summer in a couple of weeks, and more time will be spent outdoors in this great weather.

    A pesky creature will also be looking for you to spend more time outdoors, and that is the tick.  However, knowing where ticks prefer to be can help you and your family be more aware of and avoid those close encounters of the tick kind.

  • Last Sunday, May 10, we celebrated Mother’s Day. One day out of the year, we have this beautiful opportunity to give back to the people who have given us so much: our moms. We love them (at times, maybe not so much) and as we get older, sometimes, we become them. Whether she carried you inside of her for nine months or is a non-blood related woman who has loved you like her own, most people can identify a person who they can be thankful for on this holiday.
