    Showcasing success
    Nov. 24, 2010

  • It was 28 degrees on the Branch this morning. It’s always a little colder here in the valley than the surrounding area.
    Deer hunting season is in full swing. All the Whitesburg contingency are at the hunting shack. I heard the shotguns in the distance. We don’t allow hunting our farm. It’s just too narrow and we have three houses with vulnerable windows to protect, but there are lots of deer and they know a “free zone” and congregate on our land.

    Kentucky’s top official, Gov. Steve Beshear, will take the stage at the 11th annual Owen County Chamber of Commerce dinner Monday. The meeting will be held at the Owen County Extension Office.
    Owen County Chamber of Commerce is not a routine procedure to how a speaker is chosen each year, but suggestions are taken from chamber members.


  • The days are getting shorter and colder.
    Wanda’s favorite pastime, fishing, has about come to an end till next spring. She and Barbara went to Elmer Davis Lake last week, on one of those mild day to wet a line.
    Wanda said it was slow going, but they did catch enough for supper. It was just nice to be out on the water and spending time with her sister. She and Ray went back to the Game Farm to try their luck over the weekend, but the wind was so cold they gave up and packed it in. They did catch a few fish. The fishing poles are stored for the winter.

  • Probably the biggest weekend in this part of Kentucky since the ending of World War II, has just passed without a major disaster.
    The Breeders’ Cup weekend, Halloween and a UK football game, colliding on the same weekend. I take my hat off to the planning and law enforcement groups  that  made it happen.
    I, for one wouldn’t have been in the Lexington area for all the gold in Ft. Knox, if there is still any gold there. But everybody else seemed to have a great time.
