  • McCool to perform at First Apostolic Church

    Gospel singer Greg McCool Sr. of Crossville, Tenn., will sing and give his testimony at the First Apostolic Church, 111 Third Street in Carrollton at 11 a.m., Sunday, April 28. His voice and guitar playing are some of the best in country gospel music.  McCool began his music career more than 36 years ago playing guitar in nightclubs and for some of Nashville’s best singers.  But since giving his life to God, he has been singing and playing gospel music for over 19 years.  Everyone is invited.

  • With pastures greening up well across the county, it is time to start planning ahead of summer pasture needs for your horses.

    Pasture provides a significant percentage of horses’ nutrient needs. Al- though horses have more grass than they can consume in the spring when moisture is adequate, the hot, dry conditions of summer greatly reduce available pasture.  Good management is the key to getting through this growth slump.

  • As the weather warms, this is the perfect time to think about the  tradition of summer camp. From swimming and hiking, to singing songs around a camp fire and newer challenges like a high ropes course, camp is the place to make memories that last a lifetime.
