  • Deck out the yard; adopt a snowman; get the holiday spirit

    It’s clear that the holiday season has arrived in Carroll County.
    The first real snow of the season fell Saturday, just as a number of Christmas events were held throughout the community.
    I spent all day Saturday working at A Christmas Carroll, which inspired me to haul out the tree and start decorating our home on Sunday. My tree is up and the remaining Christmas decorations will be up by the end of this weekend.

  • A word of praise for our firefighters

    One of the TV shows I watch regularly is CBS Sunday morning. This week’s program featured a tribute to volunteer firemen and women.  I’d like to add my own praise for these most vital members of our community.
    Several years ago, I think around 2000, I answered a knock at my front door on the Sunday afternoon before Thanksgiving to see a fireman standing there. “Mrs. Boyd, you might want to move your car.  The warehouse is on fire,” he said.

  • Shopping locally will boost our economy

    Everyone appears to be looking to Frankfort or to Washington to take action that will improve our local economy and put people back to work.
    But that’s not necessary.
    With the holiday shopping season here, you can have an impact on the economy in Carroll County by simply spending your holiday budget here at home.

  • Wraps make great use of Thanksgiving leftovers

    Happy Thanksgiving everyone. I am sure you are in the midst of preparing your holiday meal, but it is also the time to take a minute and reflect on the important things in life. I am so thankful for my five perfect grandchildren, three wonderful children, a fantastic daughter-in-law, delightful daughter-in-law to be and a very special son-in-law to be. However, the most important person I am so very thankful for is my husband. He is my rock.

    So enjoy your wonderful day, indulge in the sights, smells and food,  and be as happy as you can. It is a wonderful day.

  • It’s great to reconnect with friends

    I think it’s good to reconnect.  For many years I had pretty much lost contact with friends from high school which was sad since we had been a very tight knit group of gals. Some of us were majorettes; some played in the band; some were cheerleaders.  Others, like me (who had failed miserably at playing the French horn) were just in the stands for every ball game and at Dog n Suds afterwards, packed into whatever family automobile available that night. Then we scattered and it was many years before we began to get together.

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank those individuals who helped make my experience at The Miss Kentucky State Festival Pageant a successful and memorable journey. First and foremost I would like to thank my entire family for their undying support, both financially and emotionally.
