  • I recently worked on adjusting the bell system for our church, which was quite out of date. I adjusted the toll times for our weekend services and even our daily services, along with improving the hourly chimes during the day. It inspired me to consider the use of bells in churches throughout the centuries.

  • Community members are receiving phone calls in which the caller identifies himself/herself as a representative of Carroll County Memorial Hospital and requests that you verify your personal information for them. The hospital wants the community to be aware that this is a scam and not to verify any information with them, but instead to hang up.

  • Most of us hear early on that we should drink water for good health, but some of us may not know why it is so important.

    More than two-thirds of our bodies are made of water. It helps lubricate our joints, and without water, our organs could not properly function. Water is also essential in helping us remove waste from our bodies.

    If you do not consume enough water, you run the risk of becoming dehydrated. Dehydration can cause headaches, mood changes, fever, dizziness, rapid heartbeat and kidney problems among others.

  • Tall fescue, specifically Kentucky 31, is a cool-season grass that is widely grown throughout Kentucky and the eastern United States, because it is resistant to many unfavorable conditions including drought tolerance and insect resistance.

    However, the very reason for its resiliency is also its Achilles heel. It contains a harmful fungal endophyte that causes fescue toxicosis in cattle and horses. Affected animals get sick, have reduced weight gains, reproductive problems and other issues.
