  • Our family has been a busy one this week. We spent June 12 hosting an engagement party for our daughter and her fiancé.

    It was only for the family, but the groom’s family is quite large. It was fun for me because now that I no longer cater, I have the time to do more meals and parties for friends and family, which I love to do.

    Since I did not know the likes and dislikes of the group we were entertaining, I tried to include some very simple, but well-liked foods that I have served over the years. 

  • District Court Judge Thomas M. Funk, who serves Carroll, Grant and Owen counties, attended a Local Rules Seminar on May 17-18 in Louisville.

    The seminar was to help courts update their local rules to comply with the new statewide “Family Court Rules of Procedure and Practice” adopted by the Supreme Court Jan. 1.

  • Jon Becraft, son of Bradley and Ethel Becraft of Sanders, was among 171 students who received bachelor’s degrees during Hanover College’s 178th annual commencement ceremony, held Saturday, May 28, at the Point on the college’s campus.

    Becraft, a theatre major, graduated from Carroll County High School before attending Hanover.

  • It is officially summertime, which means it seems that we are all running in different directions and time seems to be flying at a rate that is unreal in comparison to winter. 

    The sun comes out earlier and stays out later, however that rarely equates to the ability to get more done.  In summertime, we often get so busy that we can forget there are activities going on in our community that we can get involved in. 

  • There will be a Farm Field Day Tuesday, July 12, at the Bob Luckhardt Farm on Pardue Road in Ghent.

    The day will begin at 6 p.m. and end with a twilight meal. Topics will be seeding techniques, restoring high traffic areas, warm season grasses, winter limit feeding of livestock, watering system options and dead animal composting.
