  • Kentucky locations are among nation’s top historic landmarks

    From a historical perspective, it is not much of a stretch to say that some of the Western Hemisphere’s first farmers were Kentuckians.

    That’s because the Red River Gorge in Eastern Kentucky is just one of a few hotspots in North and South America where archeologists say modern agriculture took its first steps.  Early bands of pre-historic settlers found its soil and climate ideal to domesticate such wild plants as the sunflower, whose seeds added both flavor and nutrition to their food.

  • Project Comfort makes a difference for senior citizens in Carroll County

    Mr. Dick Humphrey is in heaven now. I knew him as a senior citizen in my neighborhood many years ago. He moved slowly and deliberately, always with a cane. He depended on those around him to help get groceries into his house and snow off his porch.

    People looked out for Mr Humphrey and offered to help him in many creative ways. My “thing” was to walk with him to church. He was always happy and grateful for the community who cared for him.

  • Quilts are featured in October

    October represents many different things to us these days. In the library, we love it because it is our Annual Quilt Month.

    Each October, the library is transformed with quilts hanging in the rafters and all throughout the building. It gives it even more of a welcoming, “homey” feeling. 

    This year, our community graciously loaned us almost 50 quilts to display in the library. This has been our largest showing. I still have the goal set to display my first quilt.  I did not make it this year, so there is always next year.

  • Safety is a key for use of generators at home

    Many households run generators during a power outage and homeowners should take extra precautions to avoid injury. Generators powered by gasoline or diesel fuel can produce potentially deadly levels of carbon monoxide and should be operated only in well-ventilated, covered, unheated areas. Never use them inside. 

    Homeowners should always practice extreme caution when using a generator to power the home.

    Make sure the generator is listed by an independent testing organization, such as Underwriters Laboratory.
