  • Looking for grace

    Have you seen grace lately?

    That was a question posed in 1996 by the editor of the now-defunct Virtue magazine, a Christian women’s magazine I used to write for.

    The editor, Jeanette Thomason, once spent several weeks chronicling the stopping spots of railroad tramps in Spokane, Wash.

    She’d make her way past rows of abandoned buildings and find discarded wine bottles and chicken bones, cold campfires and cardboard lean-tos.

    Sometimes she’d find treasures, like a cast-off, sleeveless Army jacket or a torn sleeping bag.

  • Fiscal court discusses voting machines, garbage rates

    Carroll County Clerk Alice Marsh said it had been two weeks since she and Harp Enterprises representative Ross Roberts spoke to Carroll County Fiscal Court about the changes in what will be a certified voting machine.

    Spring-calving cow herd

    Fescue pastures do not generally produce much in August, however rain in June and early July has given us some forage going into the usually dry months. Keep rotating pastures to permit calves to continue gaining weight. Keep minerals available at all times.

  • Tips for back to school shopping

    When it is time for children to go back to school, there is a flurry of activity for school supplies and school clothes. It is tempting to spend money for more clothes and supplies than the child needs.

    Take a look at your spending plan and income and determine how much money you have available for school clothes and supplies. If you have been putting money aside each month for this purpose, look at how much you have saved. This will tell you how much you can spend. Using credit is not a good idea unless you will have the money to repay the charges within the next 30 days.

  • Lady Panthers soccer defeats Switzerland County, 3-0

    The Carroll County Lady Panther soccer team has had a feast or famine season so far. They either are winning by shutting out their opponents or the opponents are shutting them out.

    The trend continued as Carroll County freshman goalie Ashlyn Davis turned in her second shutout in four games as Carroll defeated Switzerland County 3-0 Aug. 20, to even their record at two wins and two losses.

    “How about that, two wins in seven days,” Carroll County head coach Josh Noble said. It took the Lady Panthers 13 games last year to achieve two wins.
