    Saturday, Nov. 19

    Scouting for Food visits homes in Carrollton and Carroll County to collect non-perishable food donations for the local food pantry. Everyone wishing to donate should have their items outside the front door by 9 a.m. for Scouts to collect.

    A Carrollton Police Department vehicle will be at Kroger for Stuff the Cruiser as part of Scouting for Food Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

  • The Lord appeared to him from far away. I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore I have continued my faithfulness to you. (Jeremiah 31:3 ESV)

    Recently, I attended the funeral of a fallen police officer in a very large community.

    As I parked our city’s car among the hundreds of police cars, I was amazed at the sea of blue uniforms in attendance. But what struck me and made the topic of this column is what I heard when I got out of the car. 

  • It’s that time of the year when the hungry of the community are fed through donations of non-perishable food. Boy Scouts, Cubs from Troop 418, Girl Scouts, Brownies and high school volunteers will hit the streets in Carrollton and Carroll County as the 31st annual Scouting for Food project begins Saturday, Nov. 12.

  • We’re getting to that time of year again for 4-H country ham projects.

    4-Hers who would like to participate in the country ham project must:

    • Be age 9-18 as of Jan. 1, 2017

    • Pay $60 fee to receive two (2) hams

    • Give a 3-5 minute presentation at the Ken-tucky State Fair on the required topic

    • Be available on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day (Jan. 16, 2017) to cure green hams

    Adults may also participate, but will be limited to one ham at $40 each.

  • As we come to the end of the growing season, it is time to focus on landscape sanitation.

    Good sanitation practices can help reduce disease-causing pathogens. These organisms can survive for months or years on dead plant material or in soil, causing infections in subsequent years. Elimination of disease-causing organisms reduces the need for fungicides and can improve the effectiveness of disease management practices.
