Today's Features

  • Together with their parents, Courtney Nicole Miles and Ian David Tomblinson announce their engagement and upcoming wedding on Saturday, Oct. 15, 2011, on the Miles family farm in Sanders, Ky.  

    Courtney Nicole is the daughter of Randal and Debra Miles of Sanders, Ky. She graduated from Western Kentucky University with degrees in Biology and Spanish and is completing her final year of medical school at the University of Louisville School of Medicine. She will train to become a head and neck surgeon.

  • Do you have a lot of recipes that you no longer use because you feel they take too long to prepare or contain too many ingredients? 

    I actually have felt the same about some of my recipes. Stop and think about when you last used that recipe and what was going on at the time. For example; when I was in 4-H, I had to make an angel food cake. At the time, we met every week and most often had to make the item we were required to exhibit that year. 

  • Although the recent weather has suggested summer is not ready to end, the noticeable changing of the trees suggests fall is arriving in the Blue-grass State. Autumn is a beautiful time of year with its mums, pumpkins, and harvested fields, but it is also a popular time for the “fun guys” to appear.

    Fun guys?

    Oh!  You mean fungi!  Mushrooms!

  • On Sept. 17, two Carroll County 4-H Rifle Shooters competed in the 2011 4-H state shooting competition at Wilmore.
