  • The Sons of the American Legion Squad No. 41 has had a very busy summer.

    On Saturday, Sept. 16, Area B Commander Troy Stethen, Squad Commander Ricky A. Wainscott, and Sgt. at Arms Ricky S. Wainscott attended District 6 meeting in Williamstown, Ky., at Post No. 137. They learned a lot of helpful information to advance veterans, and Sons of American Legion and Legion causes. They had a great meal and fellowship. Squad 41 was well attended.

  • The Carroll County Retired Teachers Association met Sept. 15, at Two Rivers Restaurant with 10 members in attendance. President Cassandra McBurney welcomed everyone to the meeting. The minutes of the May meeting were read by secretary Donna Wallace and were approved as read. The treasurer’s report was given and approved.

  • Pictures of the bands and activities will be in next week's paper.

  • Not everyone is a baseball fan, but it would be difficult to find someone who does not know at least some of the words to “Take Me Out to the Ballgame.”

    Gene Woodrey, a 95-year-old resident at Fairview Place in Carrollton, Ky., had grown up and lived in southern Ohio on a farm. Entertainment was often what could be found on the radio and Woodrey’s family tuned to 700 WLW to listen to the Cincinnati Reds games. In all of his years, Woolrey had never been taken out to the ballgame.

  • Volunteers have approximately eight hours to set up the half scale replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial wall. Workers from the county, city and state park and others completed the task.

  • 4-H has started and it’s going to be an exciting year. Please look over the schedule and call the office (502) 732-7030 and sign your child up for the activities that they would be interested in.

  • The Three Rivers District Health Department Medical Reserve Corps provides citizens of both medical and non-medical backgrounds with a way to help their communities during a public health emergency.

    Anyone interested in joining the Medical Reserve Corps is invited to attend one of two orientation sessions:

    • 6 to 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 26, at the Pendleton County Emergency Management Office, 2275 U.S. Highway 27 N, Falmouth, Ky.  Refreshments will be provided. (This session is being held jointly with the Three Rivers District Health Department).

  • Feed, and specifically winter feeding, is the single highest expense in cow-calf production systems. In many cases it can make up more than 50 percent of the total cow-calf budget.

    Traditionally, hay is the main feed that is used during the winter months. Producing hay that is high enough in forage quality to meet the nutritional needs of lactating brood cows can be difficult. Feeding that hay during the cold, wet and muddy winter months can also be a challenge, especially if you work off the farm since it is dark when you leave and dark when you get home.

  • New events

    Sept. 14-22

  • Dear friends, the Catholic Church celebrated the birthday of Blessed Mary on Sept. 8 (Nativity of Bl.Virgin Mary).

    Life magazine estimated that the prayer “Hail Mary” is said 2 billion times every day, and each year, 5-10 million people make a pilgrimage to Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico City. Many others visit Marian sites elsewhere in the world. Mary is prayed through as an advocate and helper, and even in the sports area there is a reference to her power: the last desperate pass by a losing football team is called a “Hail Mary pass.”
