    Last year our serviceberry was afflicted with a whimsical looking disease; the beautiful blue berries that appear in the summer looked like something from a Dr. Seuss book. In a good year the cedar wax wings usually flock in and eat the berries as they ripen, not so last year. The strange, white tubular protrusions that the berries were covered in not only looked funny but they also kept the birds away.

  • Most of the news? This morning it’s house, outbuilding and yard cleaning.

    Wanda said Barbara’s birthday was April 2, so she volunteered to help her clean out her garage/storage building as a birthday gift. It hadn’t been done since David passed away.

    Vanessa came and helped for a while too. She said they got a lot done. David had a lot of stuff, so they spent much of their time with, “What is this for?” and “What about this?”

  • Nicholas and Shelby Carter are proud to announce the birth of their third son, Campbell Ashlen Carter.

    He was born at 8:55 a.m., Wednesday, Feb. 3, 2016, at Frankfort Regional Medical Center. He was 8 lbs, 13 oz. and 21 inches long.

    He was welcomed into the world by his two older brothers, Carson, 8, and Cooper, 4.

  • Kevin and Gabrielle Welsh of Worthville are proud to announce the birth of their daughter, Khloe Grace Welsh.

    Khloe was born at 2:26 a.m., Tuesday, Feb. 9, 2016 and weighed 6 lbs. and 13 oz.

    Proud grandparents are Jim and Pru Grider of Owenton and David and Darlene Welsh of Sheffield, Penn. Proud cousins are Kaileigh and James Grider.

  • The fourth-grade students at Owen County Upper Elementary School were transported back in time on two occasions this year as history was brought to life for them through the presentations of Lexington actor Kevin Hardesty.

    Hardesty received his B.F.A. in acting/theatre from the University of Kentucky in 1986, and has since performed professionally in theatre, film, and television, including prominent leading roles in “Biloxi Blues,” “Hamlet,” “Macbeth” and “Romeo and Juliet.”

    On Friday, April 1, the OCHS Music Department hosted the annual school talent show.

    With a total of 13 acts and over 20 performers, students at the end of the school day were entertained by a variety of talented peers.

    From singing and playing instruments, to dramatic skits and juggling, our students were proud to show off what they do best.

    Freshman Peyton Burton emceed the show and introduced the student performances:

    On March 29, a bus of OCHS students arrived at St. Francis in the Fields Episcopal Church in Harrods Creek, Ky.

    They took their seats in the church pews and awaited for the concert of Chanticleer to begin.

    Chanticleer is a world-famous all men’s choir, vocalists ranging from soprano to bass. The group is based out of San Francisco, but travels across the globe year-round and rarely ends up as close to Owen County as they did last Tuesday.
