    Carroll County Jailer Michael Humphrey presented his budget to Carroll County Fiscal Court March 22, as required by state statute.

  • Slugs can cause a lot of plant damage if not controlled

    Spring is here, and what a welcomed sight it is!

    After experiencing two very cold winters, this past winter has been rather mild.  Because of the mild temperatures, it is a good chance that slugs have survived, which may cause our plants some issues.

    Slugs use their rasping mouthparts to tear tissue from leaves, stems, and flowers.  New transplants and small seedlings are especially vulnerable to these creatures.  Feeding damage and silvery slime trails on bedding plants is a sign of the creatures.

  • Growing and cooking with herbs

    We all want to eat food that tastes good. One of the most common ways we tend to make food taste good is by adding salt. Unfortunately, most American diets are too high in sodium. Diets high in sodium can raise blood pressure, which can lead to many major health issues including heart disease. Herbs provide a great way for us to limit our sodium intake while still consuming flavorful foods.
