  • Family fun at the Fourth: Country stars Sheppard, Lang headline concert before fireworks

    T.G. Sheppard and Kelly Lang are country music stars with a passion for music – and each other.

    Together for 13 years and married for six, Sheppard and Lang also have a passion for performing, and will bring that passion to Carrollton for a free concert during the city’s July 4 celebration at 8 p.m. next Thursday at Point Park.

  • Robinson on mission to be ‘more like Jesus’

    Eleven countries in 11 months.

    It might sound like Carrollton native Riah Robinson is taking the vacation of a lifetime, but she’s anything but a tourist these days.

    Robinson is participating in World Race, a program offered by Adventures in Missions that sends young people ages 21-35 around the world to work with the poor and downtrodden. The goal of each “race” is to enable these young missionaries to become more like Jesus.

    And that was what drew Robinson in.

  • Carroll County Fair successful through help from volunteers

    As I think about last week and all the time that people gave so that our community could experience an event that would be of interest to an entire family, I think of the time that it took to make sure that this event occurred. The Carroll County Fair Board gave many days before the fair began and worked long hours making sure that the fair was an event that people would enjoy.

  • Lightening bugs do more than light up jars for children

    As an Extension agent, the local county fair is one of the biggest events I work with during the year.

    A lot of blood (smash-ed fingers), sweat (it was hot last week) and tears (happy tears—have you ever seen a livestock barn as beautiful as ours?) went in to make our Carroll County Fair a great success. 

    It’s one of the most rewarding weeks I have had to date in this county with the amount of livestock we had, as well as the wonderful 4-H and open exhibits.

  • Summer outdoor activity will make children healthier

     We express a big “thank you” to all the youth and adults who exhibited at the Carroll County Fair last week.

    We are proud of the number of exhibits in the Exhibit Trailer entered by our youth and adults helping us create an array of beautiful exhibits.
