For over two decades, Sharing Bread meals have been a staple in the Carrollton community.

Founded by Larry Lalama and held at the First Presbyterian Church on the corner of 2nd St. and N. Lisbon St., the Christmas meal will be served Dec. 18 from 4:30-6 p.m.

Normally, the free community meal is served the last two Mondays of each month. This month, however, due to Christmas falling on the last Monday, the church will only serve one meal.

Jessica Hale serves as the cook for the meals and plans the menu. Hale plans meals to serve around 120 people. On meal days, she begins working after she drops her children off at school.

Melanie Campbell schedules other churches and community groups and youth groups to serve and clean up each meal. Members of the Order of the Eastern Star Carroll Chapter 315 usually serve the last meal each December. They will be serving the Christmas meal this year.

Interim Pastor Mike Doak delivers meals to shut-ins who request them at Carroll Court and Carroll Square.

“Some come for a nice meal and a chance to sit down, relax and meet friends and for companionship,” Doak explained. “Those who can pay, donate. Those who can’t pay enjoy a good meal.”

The meal is open to the public and is by donation.

Australian man travels half way around the world to learn about Ohio’s oil, gas development

Jerry Wood, seated at left on the far side of the table, met with David Hill, owner of David R. Hill, Inc., an independent oil and gas producing company; and Ray Booth, editor of the Gas and Oil Magazine, discuss oil and gas development in Ohio during a meeting in Guernsey County.

CARROLL COUNTY – The eyes of the world continue to watch oil and gas development in eastern Ohio so much so that an Australian government official flew half way around the world to check it out.

Gerry Wood, a member of the Australian Legislation Assembly of the Northern Territory, visited Carroll and Guernsey counties recently as part of a trip to the United States to learn about oil and gas development and leases.

Wood said in Australia, there is a one-year moratorium on drilling oil and gas wells. That year is coming to an end and he wanted to educate himself about the process.

Mike Chadsey, director of public relations for the Ohio Oil and Gas Association, who toured Wood around Ohio, said, he was on a fact-finding mission.

“Unlike the United States, landowners in Australia do not own mineral rights. It’s a lot different there,” Chadsey explained. “He wanted to know how the United States does oil and gas leases and about the drilling process. He is also interested in solar energy so he visited Las Vegas and attended a solar conference and also visited Wyoming.”

CHS students gearing up for a career in HVAC

During the month of December, most Ohioans are once again digging in their closets for coats, gloves and scarves for another cold winter; but heating and cooling technicians are reminding homeowners to also make sure their home’s furnace is in working order.

Matt McGraw, a certified HVAC-R contractor, teaches the Heating, Ventilating, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration high school course at Buckeye Career Center and is preparing students for future careers in the field. McGraw says homeowners should have their units professionally serviced once a year and change the filter every three months.

“It could be dangerous if your filter is dirty. Not only for the health of the house, but the unit could overheat and be a fire hazard,” McGraw said. He emphasizes that December is a good time to check the condition of your furnace’s filter as we enter the peak heating season when temperatures regularly hover near freezing.

Carrollton sophomore Brady Benner (11) goes up for a shot over the outstretched arm of Louisville senior Brandon Wahl (10) during action from a Northeastern Buckeye Conference contest Friday at Carrollton.

A young Carrollton boys basketball team suffered losses last week at the hands of South Range and Louisville.

The Warriors opened Northeastern Buckeye Conference (NBC) play Friday at home against the Louisville Leopards. The Leopards sank 12 shots from three-point range and rolled to an 80-44 win.

On Tuesday, Carrollton traveled to South Range, where they suffered a 55-33 loss at the hands of the Raiders.

Jacob Roberts scored the first two points of the game against Louisville, which was the only lead the Warriors would have during the game. The Leopards quickly took control and built a 22-10 lead at the end of the first quarter. They extended the lead to 39-25 at halftime and dominated the Warriors in the second half, scoring 19 points in the third period and 22 in the final frame.

Sophmore Adam Chaney led the Warriors with 12 points, including a three pointer. Senior Chayse Marmo chipped in 11 points, including five from the foul line.

Carrollton connected on 11 of 41 field goals for 26.8 percent, compared to 28 of 67 for 47.1 percent for Louisville. Chaney sank Carrollton’s lone three pointer.

Senior Derek Zeller led the Leopards with 23 points and eight rebounds. Senior Brandon Wahl added 22 points, including four three-point shots.

Louisville held an advantage on the boards 36-27. Brady Benner pulled down seven for the Warriors.
