  • Resources can be limited in small communities like Carroll County. Over the years, I have begun to understand that partnerships really help strengthen the foundation of many organizations. One of the great things about our community is how we can come together when needed. This can be in the face of adversity or rallying around a good cause. Partnerships have been the cornerstone of the Carroll County Public Library for many years.

  • It’s nearly Thanksgiving, and soon delicious, juicy turkeys will take center stage at many of our holiday meals. It’s so important that these birds are properly cooked and prepared, because we don’t want anyone to get sick from a food-borne illness.

  • The Carroll County Public Library is located at 136 Court Street in Carrollton. Every day after school, the community room is open to tweens and teens to relax, visit with friends and enjoy activities, snacks, games, movies, Netflix, etc. Virtual Reality games are popular and they will have new ones to try out, Monday through Friday from 3:30 – 5 p.m.

    Make ornaments throughout the month of November after Story Hour and Music Makers to decorate the Christmas tree at General Butler State Resort Park Lodge, Nov. 30.

  • 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.

  • Psalm 23:1, 1 Cor. 11:1

    There are annual days that are observed within most of our local churches. We celebrate Choir Day, Missionary Day, Usher Day, Men and Women’s Day, and Senior Day. But when you think about it, these are opportunities for us to look back over the past year and examine whether we have been the men and women, the choir, ushers, missionaries, and seniors, that the Lord requires us to be. If not, then why the celebration.

  • Kenzie Nelson, 17, of Carrollton; Peyton Morgan, 17, of Warsaw and Jordan Blanton, 24, of Bedford are among the top 11 contestants that will compete in the finals of “Shine,” an online television show created and produced by Carrollton native Brandon Stewart.
