  • Meeting marks woman’s club’s 97th year

    On July 5, the Carrollton Woman’s Club began its 97th year. Members met at 7 p.m. at Pat Perkins’ place on Seminary St. Hostess for the evening was Mary Ann Carrico-Mitchell who presided. Karen Claiborne, Vice-Governor for the Fifth District had a program comparing Carrollton Women’s Club in the beginning in 1914, to today in 2011. The role of women in the community was very different from today as more women stayed at home, and there were as many as 65 members in the club back then.

  • Homemade French bread is great with spaghetti

    Since it is hot outside, I decided the other day to make some French bread to serve with my spaghetti and meatballs.

    I started making the bread about 10 a.m. and by 12:15 p.m., it was done. The reason I am telling you this is to give you an idea of how simple it is to make. Most of the time the bread is rising, and you can go off and do other things. I usually set my timer for rising, however I will check the bread just to make sure it is doing okay. 

  • Transportation systems make Kentucky the ‘heart’ of the U.S.

    One of the Commonwealth’s most famous authors, Jesse Stuart, once wrote that “if these United States can be called a body, Kentucky can be called its heart.”

    He was referring to more than just our location, of course, but his words have proven prophetic in a geographic sense as well. It turns out that our literal place in the world is a great place to be when it comes to helping the world get what it needs.

  • Put agendas aside, tackle the debt crisis

    How can we not be worried about our nation’s debt crisis?

    As I write this, all the politicians in Washington, D.C. are scurrying around trying to take some kind of action to prevent our nation from defaulting on our loans on Aug. 3. Without congressional action to raise the U.S. debt ceiling, we won’t be able to borrow more money. This appears to mean folks would not receive their Social Security checks or veterans’ benefits.

    This is a problem because our federal government now borrows 40 cents of every dollar it spends.

  • Forage field day creates an animal composting pad

    Kudos to the brave souls last Tuesday night for attending the Carroll County Beef and Forage Field Day. It was hot and if one was to look at the weather radar I would have been near the house too. We were lucky with just a short sprinkle and it cooled down quite a bit.

    The highlight of the night was the animal composting pad that was installed for the field day.
