  • Extension program set for managing health, weight

    Did you make a New Year’s resolution to lose some weight? Maybe you did, or maybe not. Think about it, would you still like to have fun with friends as you work on losing that extra unhealthy weight in ways you can keep it off?

  • Keeping records, education opportunities

    The next Cooking with Shawn class will be Thursday, January 20, at 6 p.m. at the Carroll County Extension Office. I’m not sure what the topic will be but it will be good. This will be the last class for a while as Shawn will be having surgery on his elbow (see what extreme whisking will do to you). Classes will begin again when the doctor says he can safely whisk again. I am just giving Shawn a hard time but give him high kudos for his cookbook. Ruth Ann has read it cover to cover and I can’t wait to try some of the recipes.
