  • Pies add tasty treat to Extension council meeting

     I recently took three pies to a Carroll County Cooperative Extension Council meeting. We met to mull over our wishes for the type of 4-H leader we would like for our community. 

    Pie was the perfect food to bring for just such an occasion, and after seeing all our wishes recorded in big letters on poster paper in front of us, we should definitely get a perfect 4-H agent. We now have two perfect agents in Grace Angotti and Kristin Herbst, so why not a third coming in the very near future.

  • Scenes from the Speedway
  • Record temperatures make time at the speedway difficult, limit dog walks and other activities

     Well what else is there to write about except the weather?  The older I get, the harder it is to be outside when the temperature is near or over 100 degrees.  I am grateful for air conditioned cars and that I finally put central air in my house last summer. Because of it, I stay in as much as I can, but…

    There are dog walks to be taken and “she who won’t be denied” doesn’t mind the heat.  I thought the hot pavement might burn her little feet, but she steps so spritely, I don’t even think she feels it.
