  • Time nearing to address pastures

    The time is quickly approaching to consider renovation of pastures.
    The decision to reseed pastures can be based on multiple reasons, like renovating old stands that are dying out causing bare spots, reducing the number of undesirable weeds and forages, introducing a new forage species, and controlling forage-related disorders.

  • Use hot pack method to minimize separation when canning tomatoes

    This past week, 12 people interested in learning food preservation methods attended our very successful food preservation workshop at the Carroll County Extension office. Local extension volunteer and food processor Bobby Giles of Carrollton was a great help in helping me teach the workshop. Thank you so much, Bobby! We gave them hands-on experience in canning green beans, strawberry jam and freezing sweet corn and concentrated on the USDA-approved techniques and information.

  • Throughout life, everyone can expect to encounter natural and moral evil

    How can God, who is all-loving and all-powerful, allow evil to exist in a world that he created? This is the question that believers and unbelievers alike have been asking for generations.
    The nature of the problem of evil will never begin to be understood by this city or anyone else, until it is examined from a scriptural point of view, understanding that scripture interprets scripture. (2 Timothy 3:16 KJV)

  • Library’s resources aid local students as school resumes

    At a meeting toward the end of June, I had a discussion about how quickly the summer was going by and that it seemed like it was almost over. The funny part about this discussion is that summer had not actually even started.
    Our definition of the seasons is no longer determined by when they actually start, but by when our idea of them starts. Summer might be the most extreme example of this, but they all seem to follow the pattern ingrained in us by the schedule we followed from age 5 to age 18: the school calendar.
