    The yard sale will be held Monday, June 2 and run through Friday, June 6 from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. each day.

    We look forward to another great year.

  • Memorial Day honors all those who gave the ‘ultimate sacrifice’

    Memorial Day may be the unofficial kick-off to summer, but as we ready for the upcoming holiday weekend, it is vital that we never forget it is much more than that.  It is also a time when we as a nation pause to mourn and to reflect upon those men and women who paid the ultimate price defending our freedom.

    The holiday is nearing its 150th anniversary, and given that it came about in the wake of the Civil War, it seems appropriate that there is still some debate between the North and South about its exact origin.

  • UK top players join Champions with anti-drug message

    When many of you hear about University of Kentucky basketball, you might think of Big Blue Nation or the eight-time NCAA Champions — maybe even a fervent fan base.

    But one thing is for sure, the University of Kentucky basketball team is and always has been one of strong teamwork, dedication and perseverance, whether they were winning or losing. These are qualities that a couple of the team’s former players will hone in on, from 4-5 p.m., May 30, at the Carroll County Middle School.

    The Pioneer Power Tractor & Engine Club would like to thank everyone for supporting us this year at our annual show on May 9-10. A very special thanks goes out to Ky. Motor Service and Millers Auto Sales for use of the property and support. There were numerous local businesses that supported the show and we don’t have enough room to list all the names here, but we want to also thank them as well.

  • It is never too early to start teaching children to cook

    A beautiful sunny Monday morning. Sometimes it seems hard to equate beautiful and Monday in the same sentence, but today, it’s all true. The grass is green, part of my garden is planted and spring is all around us. Good times all around.

    One thing that makes any time better is having family or friends around. This brings me to the point of exactly that: family and cooking.

  • Nutrition important for fitness

    In this month’s Health Matters, we are going to hit a few topics and tidbits to help with nutrition and training.

    Eggs

    The question arises at least once a week, what about eggs? I love them and want to eat them daily, but should I limit my consumption, due to the fear of cholesterol consumption?

  • Thanks extended to 5K participants

    Editor:

    I would like to thank those individuals that made our second annual Relay for Life 5K a success. Thank you to Wal-Mart for donating bananas to the runners and walkers after the event and to Verizon Wireless of Carrollton and manager Josh McIntyre for providing the “water break” at the halfway point. Special thanks to the Carroll County Health Department for timing the race with their new state of the art equipment and to the American Cancer Society for providing medals to every participant.
