    The battle for the Class 2A District 5 title between host Carroll County and Walton-Verona turned out to be a defensive one as both teams struggled to cross the goal line in chilly, wet conditions Friday night. Walton found the end zone twice to deny Carroll it’s first district tile in over thirty years.

    Carroll County had an opportunity to get into the end zone first. On their second drive of the night, the Panthers reached the 15-yard line.

  • Info on poison hemlock, signs of acute poisoning

    Poison hemlock is toxic to a wide variety of animals including man, birds, wildlife, cattle, sheep, goats, pigs and horses.

    People are usually poisoned when they mistakenly eat hemlock for plants such as parsley, wild carrot, or wild anise.  The first notable example of human poisoning was the death of Socrates in 399 B.C. when he ingested a tea made from poison hemlock containing the toxic piperidine alkaloids coniine and gamma coniceine.

    Cattle seldom eat hemlock but they will if no other forage is available or it is incorporated in hay or silage.

  • Dealing with this sin I’m in

    Psalm 51:1-4

    Sometimes I feel as if I’m out-of-sync, as if I’m in a funk.

    Sometimes I feel like I’m standing still, while my life fills with junk.

    Sometimes I think no one understands, this loneliness that I feel.

    Sometimes in my secret closet, the words just don’t seem real.

    Sometimes I ask the Lord, Lord why do my bones ache within.

    Then I hear him answer, IT’S YOUR UNCONFESSED SIN.

    P. W. Harris
