  • Two or three years ago, on a Sunday afternoon, I was having lunch at one of our local restaurants with another family from our church. When the time came to pay the bill, the waiter told us that the bill for our lunch had already been paid. Someone else sitting somewhere else in the restaurant decided to do something incredibly kind and generous for which I am still very thankful. They did not even want to receive praise or thanks for doing this, so they kept their identity a secret. I found myself wanting to thank someone but had nowhere to aim my thanks.

  • Well my friends, here we are once again. The cold breezes of the coming winter have begun blowing over the landscape. Winters grip cannot be far away and the dreams of summer days and grilling have been replaced with coats and thoughts of warm comfort foods slowly cooking in the oven. That can only mean one thing, holiday cooking is here!

    I love the holidays. That cannot be understated. I love the family gatherings, the laughs and seeing people that haven’t been around in a while. I also love the bounty of food that the holidays bring.

  • In the early 1890s, as reported by Sarah Eva Howe in her scrapbooks, the children of Carrollton attended public school in the same building from first grade through high school graduation. Then came 1895 and a collision of circumstances that changed everything!

  • Make your next visit to the library a ‘brief’ one! Drop off packages of new underwear for boys and girls, preferably sizes 4 -16, during the month of November to the Carroll County Public Library. Donations will replenish the emergency supplies at local schools and Family Resoure Centers.

    The need is great. Schools can provide underwear for children in need due to accidents or issues at home. This can save valuable learning time when parents aren’t able to bring items to their children during school hours.
