  • 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.

  • Paul’s writing to the Philippian’s said, I don’t want to be self righteous by obeying the law but I desire righteousness that comes by faith in Jesus Christ.

    First, let me say, I don’t believe Paul was saying we no longer need to live a righteous life. When we read Romans 6:1, Paul asked a question: “What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?”

    Then Paul answers the question. “God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?”
