  • Carolyn Stout has seen many changes to Carrollton and Carroll County over the years.

    She grew up on Highland Avenue, or sometimes known as High Street, in one of the two matching brick houses just down the street from her current home.

  • Walk inside New Image beauty shop in downtown Carrollton, and you will likely be greeted by the hum of at least one of the six driers, the chatter of mostly women in the worn leather chairs and the infectious laugh of hairdresser Nana Adams.

    If you’re not a regular, you will likely be asked to wait, as Nana and fellow hairdresser Chuck Gordon are virtually booked up with their loyal customers, who Nana refers to as her family. She has worked at New Image since 1986 and has owned the shop since 1990.

  • A dripping faucet can make a water bill soar, so rather than watch money go down the drain, you’d probably grab a wrench or call a plumber. But there are equally expensive leaks elsewhere in your house, and you probably aren’t aware of them. They’re called phantom loads, and they’re constantly draining electric current.

  • Over the past couple of weeks, our flowering trees and plants have really been showing off. Isn’t it a welcomed sight, especially after the winter we experienced? Those pretty flowers make it easy to forget about those cold temperatures.

    Well, sort of.

    Just like last year, we are seeing just how hardy our evergreens and marginally hardy plant species are in our area.

  • The debate over spiritual gifts has been going on in the local churches of this age for many years. Although this debate is not new to the church, we are still in disagreement when it pertains to what the Bible states about spiritual gifts. The Bible must be the final authority on all questions pertaining to its contents. Therefore we must search the scriptures to find out, what are spiritual gifts, their purpose and are all of the spiritual gifts still given today?

  •  4-H camp is right around the corner.  Carroll County will be going to North Central 4-H camp June 22-26.  If you are interested in attending please call the Carroll County Extension Office at 502-732-7030 to request that a packet be mailed to you.

  • With warmer temperatures on the way, now is a good time to take inventory and make plans to go green for your annual spring cleaning.  One way to do this is to use homemade or purchased green household cleaning products.

  • It helps to control weeds, prevent extreme soil temperature fluctuation, decrease water evaporation, and improve drainage.  Mulch also reduces mower and string trimmer damage on shrubs and trees by suppressing vegetation near their trunks.  As it decomposes, mulch produces organic materials to improve soil and otherwise benefit plants.

    Mulching is one of the best things we can do for our plants, but if done incorrectly, it can be one of the worst things we can do to them.
