    They were designated Agee, Beech Grove, Buck’s Run, Clark Ridge, Fortner, Hawkins, Little Hope, Mint Springs, Slab Lick, Panther Lick and White Chapel. They dotted the hillsides and backroads of Owen county, and according to the July 4, 1974 Bicentennial issue of the News-Herald, at one time there were more than 70 of them in the area.

  • It’s still unusually warm this morning and raining. I am not in the mood to write, but I guess I’ll think of something.

    I took advantage of the mild weather to get the outside of the house decorated. I hadn’t really planned to do much, but with Harley now in residence in New Hampshire I have no fear of the decor being eaten.

    Jess is well past the age of chewing up artificial flowers. With the help of my daughters, the inside is pretty well covered in Christmas too.

  • Cedar Hill Baptist Church

    Bro. Bill’s message was from Matthew 2:1-12 called “Returning a New Way.”  He shared how the wise men enjoyed their purposeful journey and after seeing Jesus came back home new people.  Ronnie share the song “Lord, Please Come Down to Me.”

  • Over the past few years, my friend Mike and I have had some rather unorthodox conversations about faith and stuff.

    Mike’s the one who once prayed that God would fix his toilet and it was fixed miraculously. He’s also the one who assured me that it’s OK to tell God when I’m angry at him since he knows it anyway and he won’t smite me with boils for being angry.

    Mike is also the one who one year ridiculously announced he was giving up pride for Lent, which I still remind him of 10-plus years later.

    I’ve always enjoyed the story about the little girl who asked her father where people came from. The father explained that God made Adam and Eve and that they had children, and their children had children, and soon the world was populated with people.

    The little girl then went to her mother asked the same question. The mother told her that people evolved from monkeys through a process known as evolution.

    As word of the first significant snowfall of the season spread throughout Owen County Friday, local shoppers headed for the stores in preparation for a weekend of wintry weather.

    Local forecasters began predicting light snowfall Friday afternoon, calling for a half-inch in Northern Kentucky, with the biggest amounts falling throughout the day Saturday.

    Owen County Emergency Management Agency reminds residents to remember safety tips while decorating for the holidays.

    Be careful with holiday decorations. Choose decorations that are flame resistant or flame retardant. Keep lit candles away from decorations and other things that can burn.  Some lights are only for indoor or outdoor use, but not both.

    I have always managed to do well with African violets. I generally keep them in bloom year round. Many complain that after the first flush of blooms fades the only thing left is a year’s worth of fuzzy foliage.

    Well, with a little attention you can keep your African violet cycling in and out of bloom all year. The key is to create a favorable growing environment.
