  • His stooped figure was a familiar sight among the hills of Owen County in the early 1900s. At times he would exit the road and stroll through fields to visit an isolated family. His age was unknown, but his deeply-lined weathered face acknowledged years of exposure to the elements.

    Two heavily-laden packs settled themselves comfortably on his shoulders and boasted of small necessities, along with a few frivolities that brought pleasure to young and old alike.

  • Mother’s Day wasn’t the prettiest day I have ever seen, but it was one of my best.

    All my children came to church with me. Teri, her husband Ray, Ann, John and Charity, Teri’s daughter Rachel and her three children Allie, Sean and Caitlin. We filled two pews.

    Joyce Claxon beat me as “oldest mother,” but I had the most children there. Joyce, Wanda’s mother, was oldest mother and mother with the most children at Old Cedar. Wanda, Barbara, Noel and Ray went to church with her.

  • Cedar Hill Baptist

  • When Michelle Smith talks about God, tears trickle down her cheeks.

    A 13th-generation native Floridian, she is selling or giving away all of her possessions to move to the Congo in central Africa, one of the most volatile areas on the planet.

    I enjoyed the tale about the elderly woman who called 911 to report her car had been broken into. She was hysterical, telling the person on the other end of the phone line: “They stole the radio, the steering wheel, the brake, the gas pedal, even the gear shift.”

    A few minutes later, a police officer radioed in: “Disregard. She had gotten into the backseat by mistake.”

    Diane Coleman, of Three Rivers District Health Department, provided a wealth of information regarding the multifaceted services they provide.

  • Civil Air Patrol Frankfort Squadron’s Owenton Flight went on a field trip to Owen County EMS last Thursday night. EMT Rucker, Paramedic Emily Kercheval, and Fire Chief Rob Chaney gave a tour of the facility and one of the ambulances. The EMS crew demonstrated life saving techniques on a training dummy and gave the cadets a hands on experience that was top notch.
