Carrollton Council hopes to ease 10th St. flooding By NANCY SCHAAR FPS Correspondent Acting upon the recommendation of the village finance committee, council agreed to investigate the financial options to cover the costs of repairs on 10th Street to deal with flooding issues. Council member Corey Yeager said that there are natural springs that bubble up in several yards on that street. The village has received numerous reports from residents in that area about the problem with drainage and the severe flooding they have seen at their homes in the village. Village administrator Mark Wells said that there isn’t just one cause of the flooding. Improper sizes in storm sewer pipes, clogged culverts, as well as the natural springs have caused excessive flooding. Wells said it was a combination of numerous things occurring at the same time.

Mother Nature takes a bite out of Carroll County Fair’s attendance By DON RUTLEDGE FPS Staff Writer Heat and humidity were attributed to be the prime factors for lower attendance at this year’s 169th annual Carroll County fair, which ended Sunday.

Fair Board President Jim Long said he was pleased at the good turnout for the Truck show Saturday night and all the other events during the six-day fair. Long, who has been a member of the Fair Board for 43 years and has missed only two fairs in 71 years, said he felt the fair was well attended in spite of the hot and humid weather. Carroll County Sheriff Dale R. Williams said everything went well with the fair. “The statistics confirm that it was a quiet, well behaved fair this year,” Sheriff Williams commented. Incident reports include 1 lock out, 2 missing children, no fights, no domestic incidents, no drugs reported, 1 person evicted from the fair for a vulgar shirt, three minor medical emergencies, 8 medical assists, two checks were

Leesville Council discusses mowing around sewer plant By JACQUIE HUMPHREY

FPS Correspondent At the July meeting of the Leesville Village Council, Mayor John Traxler advised that he had received a letter of resignation from employee Steve Deist, effective July 4. Traxler read the letter to council. It did not state a reason for the resignation. Traxler said that Council will need to consider and discuss whether a new employee should be hired, or if the work that needs done could be contracted out instead. Traxler reported that in the interim he has done some of the mowing and weed eating. Traxler said that he has spoken with Atwood Regional Water and Sewer District, and advised that they will take care of mowing at the sewer plant for the rest of the year, or until the Village makes a decision on what to do about this work. Fiscal Officer Sally Bernhart reminded Council that the Village had just purchased a new mower, and some Villages do not have an employee but rather split the maintenance work up among

Village Officials. Traxler said that he is willing to mow, at least the circle, for the rest of this season, and also reported that he has already had some assistance from the Village’s Volunteer Fire Department, cleaning up a downed tree. Further consideration will be given before any action is taken.

on the November ballot. These levies are expected to generate $2,750 each. - Reviewed Ordinance to regulate noxious weeds with Solicitor Jenna Hokes and was advised that the Ordinance could be rewritten to allow the Village to do the mowing, at the property owner’s expense. Hokes is to rewrite the Ordinance for approval as an emergency measure, in August. - Learned that no bids have yet been received for the Gravely Tractor. - Discussed issues with problematic street lights that have been reported to AEP repetitively over the past few months.

Dellroy Council discusses fences By JACQUIE HUMPHREY

FPS Correspondent At the July meeting of the Dellroy Village Council, Solicitor Jenna Hokes advised that that there is no ruling in the Ohio Revised Code pertaining to the governing of fences, but that most municipalities have established their own. Hokes reviewed some basic guidelines, such as the necessity of fences being at least three feet from streets, alleys and neighboring property lines, and having the finished side out. A lengthy discussion took place. Hokes advised that any complaints regarding violations to the proposed Ordinance would bear the burden of proof to the complaining party of proving where property lines lay. Council agreed that three feet is a reasonable distance from streets, alleys and neighboring properties, with a height limita-

tion of six feet. Hokes advised that the standard fine for the first finding of a violation is $50, with a second at $100 and the third at $150, which Council also agreed to. Hokes will draft an Ordinance for Council’s review at the August meeting. In other action council: - Approved twenty-six checks and five electronic payments in the amount of $4,549.70. - Heard fund balances reported as follows: $55,887.48 in the General Fund; $10,233.34 in the Street Fund; $2,344.81 in the State Highway Fund; and $2,803.49 in the Fire Protection Fund. - Heard receipts of the community hall reported at $700 with expenses of $648.15, with total receipts for the first half of 2019 at $2,450. - Approved Revenue Budget for 2020 in the amount of $105,380.41. - Approved an estimate from Carroll Asphalt & Sales in the amount of $5,195 for the chip-

ping and sealing of several Village alleys. - Heard Mayor Doug Ruby report that he had received a complaint about a fence being erected in the Village and had spoken with the property owner who was very accommodating with the request to keep the fence back 10 feet. - Learned that Ruby had received another complaint about trash being thrown onto a neighboring property. Solicitor Jenna Hokes advised that this would be a Civil Issue between the two property owners unless the issue is occurring on Village property. - Unanimously approved expenditure for mosquito spraying. - Was reminded that townwide yard sales will be held Saturday, Aug. 10, and the annual Dellroy Homecoming will be held Aug. 15-17. - Set the next regular meeting of the Dellroy Village Council for Monday, Aug. 12 at 7 p.m. in Village Hall.

Hall explained that means residents of Sherrodsville would not have to pay the difference between the total cost of a response that is not covered by insurance, Medicaid or Medicare. Orange and Monroe township residents will be required to pay those costs beyond what is covered by insurance, Medicaid or Medicare. Council did approve a Resolution that will begin the procedure to disband the Sherrodsville emergency department. Ong said an ordinance will be prepared to permit the transfer of EMS funds to the general fund. Currently that amount is $27,774. Ong also recommended that the Resolution and Ordinance be given the full three readings at three subsequent monthly meetings, in order for people in the village to have a chance to respond to the action. In other business council: - REMINDED residents the village homecoming will be held at the old fire station in downtown Sherrodsville Saturday, July 27.

Board of Elections to receive new monitoring program By NANCY SCHAAR FPS Correspondent Carroll County Commissioners heard a report from Commissioners Clerk Christopher Modranski that he is working with the Board of Elections regarding a mandate to use Enhanced Monitoring. The State of Ohio will pay for the first year for the program and then discussion will be held to decide if they should continue with it or not. The cost of the program is

not known at this time but Modranski will follow up with the program and return with more information. Commissioners approved the lease for two new patrol cars for the county sheriff’s department for 2020. In order to keep patrol cars in top shape, Williams has tried to purchase two vehicles each year. Two new Tahoe’s with police packages will be leased at a cost of $74,066. There will be a buy out for $1 at the end of the lease. Funds inherited to the sheriff’s department from the late Dorothy Long will

be used to pay for part of the agreement. In other business commissioners: - MET in executive session for 20 minutes to discuss pending litigation. - HELD discussion regarding their support of the Great Trail Fire District’s request to receive an EMS squad and other medical equipment from the Village of Sherrodsville. - Will prepare a proclamation honoring Clint Brackin for his Eagle Scout Project.

Election filing deadlines are approaching Candidates planning to seek non-partisan offices at the November 2019 election are reminded Aug. 7 is the filing deadline. The procedure involves obtaining a petition from the Carroll County Board of Elections – paying a filing fee – obtaining the required number of valid registered voter signatures on the petition and filing it by the Aug. 7 deadline. Non-partisan offices to be filled at this fall’s election include village officials, school board members, township trustees and township fiscal officers, whose terms are expiring.

Sherrodsville Village Council met July 15 and resident Jay Vaughan volunteered to serve on council. Council quickly moved to approve him for the vacant seat. Council has struggled for almost two years with vacant seats and has been unable to fill them. Recently, council was down to three members but at the last meeting they approved Mike Booth for an open seat. Members of council are now Mike Booth, Lyla Booth, Jay Vaughan, John Nicholas and Sean Leggett. Fiscal officer remains as Valerie Gardner and the mayor is Michelle Higgenbotham. One seat still remains open if anyone is interested in the position. Requirements are that you must be a registered voter and a village resident for at least one year. In other matters, council once again held lengthy discussion regarding the option to disband the Sherrodsville Emergency Squad. The department has not answered a call in over two years. There are no volunteers on the roster and there hasn’t been for a very long time. Kevin Vandegrift has been the EMS coordinator since June 2016. Sherrodsville and the surrounding townships have been without any emergency service available for that time period. Vandegrift and a few others worked last fall and held several community meetings trying to organize a levy to be placed on the ballot that would fund emergency medical service for the area. Not many attended the meetings, and support for the idea fizzled out. Council has discussed the option of transferring the newer squad unit to another government entity as allowed by law. It cannot be sold or auctioned off because it was purchased with a FEMA grant. Connie Boyd of Fairfield Volunteer Fire Department requested that their department be considered to receive the EMS squad and any other emergency equipment not needed at Sherrodsville now. Vandegrift has previously recommended to council that they donate the squad unit to

the Great Trail Fire District in Brown Township. James Hall spoke on behalf of Joel Decker, the Chief Executive Officer of an emergency service that recently opened for business in the village. Hall said he lives in Toledo. The company is called Regional Emergency Transport. Decker’s associate, Mandy Henderson visited a commissioners meeting earlier this year and told them about the plans to establish the squad service in the Sherrodsville area. At that time Henderson told commissioners they had been in business for three years but had just purchased their first squad the week before. Decker had served as EMS coordinator on three different occasions for the village. But all three terms ended abruptly with Decker leaving the village and moving out of state. Decker currently resides in South Carolina. The last time Decker served as coordinator, he left in January of 2015 but answered a call once in a while in 2015. Decker had EMT’s on the roster but only one lived in the Sherrodsville area. The rest of them lived in other counties such as Belmont and Monroe. Hall asked council, on behalf of Decker, to lease the village EMS building to his company for $1 per year. He asked that Regional also be permitted to use the new squad and equipment owned by the village. Hall asked council members to agree that night to a contract with Decker’s company for emergency service. But he had no contract prepared or written for them to consider. Village solicitor J. J. Ong advised that council would need to see a contract with the specifics of service to be provided before they could consider the issue. Hall told council that Regional EMS has been assisting with Bowerston, Leesville and Orange Township and has also been helping with paid transports for nursing homes and other patient needs. Mayor Higgenbotham asked who answers a call if they are doing a transport. Hall said there is a back up unit and volunteers, if available, to answer an emergency call in the Sherrodsville area. Hall said that Orange and

Obituaries Crystal Lee Burgett

Stafford Earl Cumberledge, Sr.

Crystal Lee Burgett, of Carrollton, died Friday, July 19, 2019, at Truman Hospice House in New Philadelphia, OH. Crys was born Nov. 17, 1947, in Zanesville, OH, to the late Ervin Lee and Mary (Oborne) Lee. She is survived by her husband, Bruce, of Carrollton; her brother, Donald (Mary) Lee, of Stow; her son, Jason (Melissa) Burgett, of Wooster; her daughter, Allison Burgett, of Carrollton; and her grandchildren, Joel, Eleanor, Benjamin, Thomas, and Ethan. She will be remembered fondly by her many nieces and nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews, whom she loved dearly. She adored her family and friends, near and far, and her Lee nephews were precious to her. She was a graduate of Zanesville High School, class of 1965, and Columbus Business University, class of 1969. She married Bruce Dec. 20, 1969, in Zanesville, and made memories with him during his service in the U.S. Army in the U.S. and Germany. Living in Europe and being in Paris with someone she loved was a dream come true. After their Army years, Crys and Bruce came back to Ohio, and lived in Tuscarawas, Harrison, and Carroll counties as Bruce’s career grew. She lived in Carrollton since 1998, and on their farm since building their home in 2005. Crys will be remembered for her devotion to her husband, children, grandchildren, and mother in her last years, especially. She was a dynamic homemaker, full of childlike energy and spontaneity. She loved hosting parties and holiday gatherings of family and friends. She was always ready to drop everything and help someone she loved. Crys was a devoted and sincere follower of Jesus since 1976, when she committed her life to her Lord. As a young mother, she was a vibrant member of Scio United Methodist Church. Years later, she was a faithful leader at Broadway United Methodist Church in New Philadelphia. After she and Bruce moved back to the Carrollton area, she served faithfully at Carrollton First United Methodist Church. Each faith community will miss her kind heart, her energy, and her commitment to family, community, and congregation. Her mantra throughout her life was that she wanted to be an example of “JOY”; putting Jesus first, Yourself last, and Others in the middle, and she set an example of kindness and love, without being pushy. She loved spending time with her mother, daughter, and granddaughter at special teas, where she felt her roles of daughter, mother, and wife embraced at once. She spent many years volunteering with various community organizations, most notably Community Hospice in Carrollton, where she was a Browse & Buy Store volunteer. Crys could be won over with a kind word or a tasty chocolate. She was not above using M&Ms as a bribe, either for her children or herself as she went through a challenging day as a mother. Her ability to laugh at herself, make someone feel loved or special, and turn a quiet day at home into a massive (mis)adventure will be missed. Instead of flowers or gifts, the family asks that memorial contributions in her name be made either to the Scleroderma Foundation, 300 Rosewood Dr., Suite 105, Danvers, MA 01923-1389, or to Community Hospice at  716 Commercial Ave. SW, New Philadelphia, OH 44663, or via the Community Hospice website at Calling hours are scheduled for  Thursday, July 25, from 5-8 p.m. at the Carrollton United Methodist Church, and the funeral is scheduled for Friday, July 26, at 11 a.m., also at Carrollton United Methodist Church. Burial will follow at Zanesville Memorial Park, 1475 Millitary Rd., Zanesville, OH. Dodds Funeral Home of Carrollton, OH, is handling arrangements.

LEGAL NOTICE The Public Utilities Commission of Ohio has scheduled local public hearings in Case Nos. 18-1720-GA-AIR, In the Matter of the Application of Northeast Ohio Natural Gas Corp. for an Increase in Gas Distribution Rates; 18-1721-GA-ATA, In the Matter of the Application of Northeast Ohio Natural Gas Corp. for Tariff Approval; and 18-1722-GA-ALT, In the Matter of the Application of Northeast Ohio Natural Gas Corp. for Approval of an Alternative Rate Plan. In its applications, NEO requests approval of an increase in gas distribution rates and of an alternative rate plan. In its rate case, NEO requests a rate increase of $3,526,053, an increase of 10.25 percent over current revenues. After its review of NEO’s applications and records, the Staff of the Commission recommends a revenue increase in the range of $500,052 to $877,542, which represents an increase between 1.39 percent and 2.44 percent over current revenues. NEO’s application for an alternate rate plan seeks to implement the following two elements: a mechanism to refund customers the rates collected in excess of the corporate tax rate established by the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017; and the creation of the Infrastructure Replacement Program (IRP) rider. The IRP would allow NEO to recover incremental costs of replacing approximately 24 miles of aging pipelines.

Jr. Fair Still Auction is a huge success for 4-H members By CHRIS MODRANSKI

FPS Correspondent The Junior Fair Still Auction was delayed about 25 minutes due to a passing rain storm Wednesday evening at the 169th Annual Carroll County Fair, but once the rain stopped the money started flowing. Area businesses and community members showed their support for our local children by spending a grand total of $30,115. A total of 79 projects were auctioned and consisted of benches, fire pits, pies, cookies, photographs and crocheted blankets, all of which were homemade by county 4H members. Warner & Warner CPA was the first high roller of the night when they bought a metal cross made of welded horseshoes for $650 constructed by Lane Barna. Fred Gordon, Viola Gordon and Linda Marx combined efforts on the very next auction by purchasing a photograph of a waterfall taken by Anna Miller for $700. Isaac Warner made a bench with the backrest made from an old Chevy truck tailgate that Tait Carter, Kiko Company Realtor, couldn’t resist and purchased for $650. Seven Ranges Manufacturing was a huge supporter of the Junior Fair Still Project Auction by purchasing a bench with a farm scene cut out of metal from Jaret Lane for $1,000. Seven Ranges Manufacturing didn’t stop their shopping spree there as they also purchased a metal fire ring welded together by Kyle Hawk for $800, a wooden/metal table built by Mack Gansheimer for $800, a framed photo from Leah Brown for $200 and a welding project from Gage Thompson for $300. “I am a metal guy, it’s what my business is and it’s hard to resist a good metal project” said Fred Tarr IV, CEO of Seven Ranges Manufacturing. Falcon Camp bought a bench made by Aspen Ujcich, and after giving it a good test by having their camp counselors sit on it, they placed their winning bid of $700. Falcon Camp was also the high bidder at $800 for

There was no secret service in the area so it’s safe to say it wasn’t THAT Mike Pence, but he did stick around long enough to buy four dozen cookies from Jaden’s younger brother, Graden, for $700. The sale of the night was a large wooden toy box built by Conner Lowdermilk that sold to MRG Tools, LLC for a whopping $3,000. There is only one thing to say with sale prices like these…It’s for the kids!

Applause To All County Officials: The 2019 Carroll County Fair was a great event to be experienced. Many county elected officials attended and supported this county fair, by purchasing 4-H market animals and 4-H still projects at the auction. Bravo to these county office holders, the public does notice their honorable efforts. The county fair is a great place to meet the office holders and see the dedication of all fair participants.

U.S. Marine Corps, ret. It was supposed to be a police action taken to support a celebrated humanitarian mission. In the horror that was Somalia in 1933, factional fighting, the total collapse of any governing authority and hunger prompted a massive relief effort led by the United States. American forces hoped to stop the worst of the violence capturing the heads of a powerful clan in Mogadishu, the country’s capital. But unexpectedly, fierce and deadly resistance by Somalis turned the assault by Army Rangers on its head, putting them into a defensive position with men wounded and an attack vehicle disabled by a rocket-propelled grenade. United States Air Force Master Sgt. Tim Wilkinson was flown in by a helicopter to care for the wounded. As he was being roped to the ground the chopper was hit by a rocket-propelled grenade, crippling it and forcing it to return to base. Wilkinson managed to drop to the ground and immediately began to care of the wounded. Meanwhile, another Black Hawk attempting to take over the air cover was shot out of the

sky. Its crew was attacked and overrun. Around the crash sight of the first Black Hawk, where about 100 troops were fighting for their lives, Wilkinson dodged the bullets of the mob to reach and treat the wounded. He pulled injured and wounded men from the wreckage to treat them. To treat others, he had to brave the unending fire of the Somalis. When it was time to cross the street in the middle of that situation, Wilkinson did not hesitate. Later when asked about it, he said, “People on the other side required medical attention and didn’t have anybody over there. Somebody had to go and I was the most available person to do it. It was my turn to step up to the plate. It was like stealing bases. You don’t look at the catcher, you run for the base and hope for the best.” Wilkinson was awarded the Air Force Cross and the Air Force Sergeant’s Association’s Pitsenbarger Award for heroism for his actions in Somalia. We have you men and women stepping up to the plate for our freedom every day. Please do not forget them. Keep them in your prayers. Charles Pearson is the chaplain for the Malvern Legion Post 375 and Carrollton VFW Post 3301.

Mohn, Earl and Mowery represent Carroll County in charity all-star game The 42nd Annual Times-Reporter All-Star Football Game hosted at Woody Hayes Stadium July 19 wasn’t the most exciting game to attend, but fans got to watch some of the top football players in the area. The West dominated the East squad with a 17-0 victory. The West got on the board in their opening drive, scoring three points on a 21-yard field goal by Ridgewood’s Keith Claxon. The West squad added a touchdown when West Holmes teammates Bridger Cline and Shane Jones connected on a

seven-yard touchdown pass to extend the lead to 10-0. That score held through halftime. Kyle Folkert of Dover, the West MVP, scored on a two-yard touchdown run, making it 17-0. Carrollton’s Teagin Mohn, a member of the East team, recorded an interception in the third quarter, the only takeaway of the game for the squad. Malvern’s Dylan Mowery anchored the way for the East on the offensive line and Sam Earl finished the game with a few tackles.

want to get them writing and enjoying it! The students can work with a classmate or partner, or work alone. Adults can help with typing, spelling and proofreading but cannot help “write” the story. Parents can help color the illustrations, but they cannot draw them. It all must come from the student’s big beautiful brain. The books should be typed and have colorful illustrations. They MUST have a colorful cover. Sadly, picture books don’t get checked out if they don’t have a cover to draw the reader in. Again, adults can help color but cannot draw the illustrations.

The books are to be turned in to the child’s teacher by March 22 and the teachers will see that they get to the library. The library staff and other volunteer judges will read them and vote for the best from each building. Winners will be announced at the end of the school year. Winning entries will be bound with a hard cover and made part of the library’s permanent collection. The winning authors and/ or illustrators will each receive a hard bound copy of the book as well! It’s a very fun, exciting contest and the library staff look forward to reading your child’s weird, sad, funny, crazy, amazing story!

Shepherd, Quealy united in marriage in Iowa Nola Rose Shepherd and James Patrick Michael Quealy were united in marraige on June 15, 2019, at the United Methodist Church, Cedar Falls, Iowa, with Pastor Scott Kober officiating.

Benjamin Moss, friend of the groom. Nola wed her long-time beau Jim wearing a custom-made dress of her own design that channels eras gone by. Inspired by the silhouettes of the 1930s and 1940s, Nola’s gown featured a sweetheart neckline, shoulder pads, short sleeves and a simple princess-style boy that trumpets into a beautiful train down the back. The 100-percent silk satin gown also boasted a dramatic line of Swarovski-crystal buttons down the back bodice and sewn as accents on the pleated sleeves. The bias-cut train is reminiscent of old Hollywood glamour, creating a classic and custom wedding style of her own. She wore a necklace owned by her paternal grandmother, Helen Baker Shepherd and carried a ring owned by her maternal grandmother Hazel Beadle Cole. She carried two dozen red

Daughter of Vincent Price to present program at Church of Christ Aug. 18 Live FAT to Die Empty Janice Turner lived in the Atlanta, Georgia, area and was quite content with life until she sensed God placing a burden on her for the Lakota Native Americans in Allen, South Dakota. At the time, the call from God may not have made sense, since there were closer ministries to Native Americans, but for her, God’s call did not have to make sense. It was plain and simple to her, if God says go, then you go. So beginning in 2008 she made several 1,300 mile trips to build relationships and to enact a culture of change in an area that resembled a third-world country. Each December, she would take Christmas gifts for the children, each gift with the child’s name on it. She would bring troubled teens home with her so they could experience Atlanta. She addressed the problem of joblessness by helping to establish a bakery, a dollar store and a silk screen business. Her goal was to help unemployed residents find jobs and, through employment, help reduce depression that joblessness creates. As she built relationships, the doors for sharing the gospel of Jesus opened up and over the last several years she was able to see over half of the homes become led by Christians. On one such trip to South Dakota in 2013, she received a call from her doctor back home in Atlanta that she was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. The diagnosis did not stop her passion and drive to live out her call from God as she continued to make trips west until the cancer destroyed her health. In January 2016 she died. My friend Handel told me the story of going to visit her shortly before her death. His purpose was to encourage her, but as so often is the case, she encouraged him. As they were saying their goodbyes, she drew him close to her and in a weakened, soft voice challenged him by saying, “Handel, die empty!” When I was told that story I began to wonder, “How could I die empty?” How could I live my life in such a way, that when it was

all said and done, people would say of me, “David died empty!”? In an earlier conversation with Handel, he had shared an acronym with me that I believed applied to my question. The acronym was FAT - Faithful, Available, Teachable. We do not have to be a Peter, John or a Paul for God to use us. The disciples were a diverse group which included rugged fishermen, a despised tax collector, a day dreamer and at least one radical. God always uses people who trust their life to God daily and are willing to be “Faithful” in their obedience to Him in all the circumstances of life. When Jesus challenged the disciples to leave everything behind and follow Him they made themselves available to Him. Little did they understand what following Jesus would look like but they followed. Their response was much like Isaiah’s in the Old Testament when he made himself “Available” by telling God, “Lord, send me!” Another reason God used the disciples was they were “Teachable.” Even though they would spend three years with the greatest Rabbi of all time, they had a lot to learn, and not only learn, they would need to learn how to apply it to their lives. II Timothy 3:16-17 states, “All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.” (ESV) We need to be teachable through studying and applying the principles found in God’s Word. Jim Elliot, who was killed along with four other men by the Huaorani people of Ecuador as they were trying to share the Gospel, once said “Wherever you are, be all there.”   That statement has been a driving force in my life. Wherever God calls me, I must be all there. Furthermore, in order to “Die Empty” I must live FAT. Live FAT so you, too, can die empty. David Guess Pastor, Amsterdam Community Church of God

Amsterdam Church of God to hold VBS Aug. 5-9 The Amsterdam Community Church of God Vacation Bible School will be held nightly Aug. 5-9, 6-8:30 p.m. at the church, 8247 Bear Road S.E., Amsterdam. VBS is open to all children

Small Animal Sale brings smiles By NANCY SCHAAR FPS Correspondent

The small animal sale held at the Carroll County fair on Saturday afternoon brought smiles to 4-H participant’s faces and those that bid kept the smile on those faces.

Many people were concerned about the high temperature that reached over 90 degrees. But the young people selling their animal projects are farm kids. They have worked in all kinds of weather, very hot, very cold, wind, storms or rain and everything in between. Farming doesn’t stop just because the farmer has to face the weather.
