  • Look for ‘organic’ when buying these fruits, vegetables

     With summer here, we all begin to try to eat more fruits and vegetables for their benefits and light-meal preparation adaptability.

    With that, we have to be aware of the fruits and vegetables we purchase. The Environ-mental Working Group recently published its annual guide to the top 12 fruits and vegetables with pesticides.

    How this
    helps you

    Choose organic produce when buying anything on the dirty dozen list.

  • Governor’s Medicaid decision could provide needed care across Kentucky

    From The Sentinel-News

    We understand that expansion of the Medicaid plan as part of the Affordable Care Act is seen as a political football, a topic to be kicked back and forth across a field of ideology with not a whole lot of regard for the players involved.

    We also admit that we don’t have the sufficient grasp of either the process or economics to reinforce the decision last week by Gov. Steve Beshear to expand the rolls and open up the possibility that perhaps 300,000 more Kentuckians can have access to health insurance.

  • Tractor club appreciates its local support

     Editor:

    The Pioneer Power Antique Tractor Club would like to thank everyone for helping to make this year’s 11th Annual Antique tractor show a success.

    Our goal is to preserve the history of agricultural machinery for future generations to learn from. It takes a huge effort to put on a show like this and without the support of the local businesses, exhibitors, vendors and spectators this event would not be possible.

  • CFD to collect for Crusade for Children May 29-June 1

    Editor:

    Having been a part of the WHAS Crusade for Children now for a decade, I am honored to announce to the community that it is again time for the 60th annual WHAS Crusade for Children weekend. What a wonderful charity that helps so many deserving children and their families in Kentuckiana, including right here in Carroll County.

    Since 1956 when the first fire department in Kentucky joined forces with WHAS to pledge their support to disabled children, fire departments now raise approximately 50 percent of donations pledged each year.

  • State makes progress on educating children

    As we put another school year behind us – and as parents wait for the inevitable cries of “I’m bored” in the not-too-distant future – now is a good time to take a closer look at all of the good things going on academically.

    Over the long term, perhaps the best news came out of a 2012 Harvard study, which showed Kentucky tying for fifth among the states when measuring the gains our students have made over the last 20 years in math, reading and science.

  • Champions needs community support to battle substance abuse

     I would like to take this opportunity to announce that Kimberly Fain is the new assistant coordinator, hired through the Carroll County School Board and Champions for a Drug Free Carroll County. The application and interview process was held in April.

    We are proud to have Fain aboard with Champions for a Drug Free Carroll County. She is rather familiar with the community and eager to learn. Hopefully within the near future, those of you reading this will be able to meet both of us and we can make strides to diminish substance abuse in Carroll County.
