Today's Features

  • Carroll County Middle School hosted a band concert, art show and Project Lead The Way open house Dec. 12.

  • The holidays are supposed to be a time of joy, but for some older adults, especially those living alone or in long-term care, holidays can be met with stress, confusion, and feelings of sadness and loneliness, often intensified because holidays can be further reminders of the loss of loved ones, health and even independence.

    During this time of year, older adults can become isolated from their friends, family and community, leading to an increased risk of depression.

  • Having a live Christmas tree in the home over the holidays is one of my favorite traditions. Sometimes, when we bring those trees into our homes, we may also encounter a few extra visitors.

    A number of arthropods live on Christmas trees while others may use them for winter shelter. Most are inactive or sluggish at outdoor temperatures but become active when their tree is brought indoors.

  • As 2016 comes to an end I am reflecting on my greatest gift for which I am so grateful. In Kentucky 4-H, one of the things we are most grateful for is the volunteer support we have throughout the commonwealth.

    Our volunteers are leaders, cheerleaders, mentors and advocates for our youth. It is with their help and service that many young people find their voice or passion and become healthy, capable, caring and productive adults.
