  • A young couple decided to wed. As the big day approached, they grew apprehensive. Each had a problem they had never before shared with anyone, not even each other.

    The groom-to-be, overcoming his fear, decided to ask his father for advice. “Father,” he said, “I am deeply concerned about the success of my marriage. I love my fiancée, very much, but you see, I have very smelly feet, and I’m afraid that my future wife will be put off by them.”

  • We just spent a week of vacation with our son, daughter-in-law and four grandchildren — ages 1, 2, 4 and 10 — in Florida.

    In that group we have some very picky eaters, including the adults. As much as I love them all, I do get a little disturbed because they all eat a lot of snack foods. The general menu for the 2- and 4- year-olds is chicken fingers and French fries, no vegetables. Their mother is trying to get them to eat better, but their habit of eating snack foods that it makes it very difficult for her.

  • This year’s Carroll County Fair is June 2-11. I know this is more than a month away, but it is not too early to start thinking of what you might like to enter in the fair.

    What flowers or vegetables might you grow? What items have you made or are making that you could enter? Do you paint or take photographs? Start thinking ahead for what you might want to exhibit. We like to see lots of entries in the open and 4-H classes at the fair. You can win money and ribbons for items that showcase your abilities.

  • I had a wonderful opportunity last week to travel to Greece with students, teachers and parents from Carroll and Owen counties. It was a fun-filled week with a great group. The students from both schools represented us well. We were around school groups from the United States, France, Spain, Italy and Greece, and I will put our kids up against anyone. This is saying quite a bit, as several in the group experienced their first plane ride.

  • Workers who sustain injuries on the job will find a new face at Carroll County Memorial Hospital ready to assist them with their recovery.

    Dr. Sherrell Nunnelley assumed his full-time role as medical director of occupational medicine two weeks ago, but he has been working at CCMH a couple of days each week for the past two months.

    “For the past 20 years, I have been taking care of all kinds of injuries,” Nunnelley said.
